As we begin to find out more about the aging process of the face, we have come to realize the importance of addressing the the midface region.
This is a common area of concern for many patients, and rejuvenating this area by using the right product and expert technique can produce outstanding results. At the CENTER for Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, internationally renowned surgeon Dr. Azizzadeh uses Juvederm Voluma to address volume loss in the mid-face. Dr. Azizzadeh has been recognized as a leader in the field of facial plastic surgery and has been featured in popular media outlets such as Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, LA Times and NY Times and has authored five bestselling books.
Are You a Candidate for Voluma?
As you age, it’s easy to become focused on the lines and wrinkles that start to appear. While those can be corrected with other products, it’s easy to ignore the fact that your body stops producing collagen which leads to volume loss. Collagen is a structural protein that’s found in your connective tissue and is most noticeable in the face. As we age, our bodies stop production and begin to break down the existing collagen. This leads to volume loss which is especially noticeable in the midface region. If you are bothered by facial sagging or a hollowed appearance in your cheeks, Voluma could be the right product for you. It’s important to see an expert injector like Dr. Azizzadeh who can assess you and confirm exactly what you are a candidate for.
What to Expect from Voluma
If you’ve consulted with a physician who has determined that you are a good candidate for Voluma, there are a few things that you should expect on the day of your injections. First and most importantly, make sure to eat something before having any kind of cosmetic injection. It’s also important to touch base with your doctor again to ask any last minute questions. You want to feel one hundred percent confident in your decision. Every doctor uses a different technique to inject, but Dr. Azizzadeh uses a cannula to help reduce the possibility of post-injection bruising or swelling. The injections shouldn’t be painful because Voluma contains Lidocaine to help ensure your comfort. As with any injections, you may experience slight discomfort at the injection sights, redness, or even lumpiness under the skin. These are all normal and shouldn’t last for any more than a few days. If you experience symptoms that seem abnormal or prolonged, it’s important to call your injecting doctor to get things checked out. The results of Voluma are immediate so you will be able to walk out of the office excited about your rejuvenated new look.
How are Voluma Results?
The results of Voluma are amazing! After the injections, you see immediate volume restoration that keeps getting better as the product settles over the following few days. The results of Voluma are much longer lasting than any other injectable filler with the optimal results lasting up to two years. This is something that sets Voluma apart from all other products, and presents a huge benefit for patients. Dr. Azizzadeh uses Voluma to help restore volume to the midface on a regular basis.
