Voluma in Columbus, OH
Most anti-aging products target lines and wrinkles, but losing volume in your cheeks will also add years to your appearance. Downtown Dermatology offers Voluma® treatments to men and women in the Greater Columbus area who need to restore fullness to the cheek area.
What is Voluma®?
Voluma® is unique amongst anti-aging products because it is specifically designed to restore volume to the cheeks. As we get older, we lose fat in our cheeks. The fat gives our cheeks an appealing shape that adds highlights and shadows to our faces. With Voluma®, you can restore fullness to your cheek area without surgery.
Patients who receive Voluma® treatments at Downtown Dermatology enjoy the following benefits:
- Fuller cheeks without surgery or implants
- No downtime
- Enhanced volume in the cheek area may resolve lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth
- Quick, easy procedure
- Treatment takes less than one hour
- Results last up to two years
Where Voluma® Be Applied?
The FDA has approved Voluma® for use in the deeper tissue of the cheek area.
How is Voluma® Administered?
Voluma® is an injectable product that is administered via a very tiny needle. In most cases, multiple injections are needed to restore the natural contours of the cheeks. You may experience a slight pinch as the needle is inserted. A secondary sensation may occur as the product is injected into the soft tissue. Most patients find the treatment comfortable, but we can numb the area if needed.
Voluma® Procedure Preparation
A consultation with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hicks-Graham is the best way to prepare for your Voluma® treatment. She will ensure that Voluma® is the best treatment option for you.
Voluma® Procedure Recovery
You will see an immediate improvement in your cheek area after just one Voluma® treatment. Results will gradually increase over time. For the first 24 to 48 hours, you may have slight bleeding, tenderness, swelling and bruising at the injection sites.
How Much Does Voluma® Cost?
Voluma® treatments are considered elective by your medical insurance. As such, you are responsible for the cost. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.
Is Voluma® Right for Me?
Dr. Hicks-Graham will determine if you have lost volume in your cheek area as a result of the aging process. Voluma® is generally considered an appropriate treatment for patients who are between 21 and 65 and want to add volume to their cheeks without surgery.
