Serving the St. George, UT Area
The face loses volume as we age, which is why more and more people are turning to Voluma® in St. George, UT. Riverside Medical Arts performs this procedure for the face to regain its youthful contour and to rejuvenate the skin.
What is Voluma®?
Juvederm Voluma® is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is provided to instantly add more volume to hollowed areas in the face such as the cheek. As we age, our face tends to lose volume and sag in the process. Aside from unwanted lines and creases, it can distort the natural contours of the face. The Voluma® filler is able to restore the youthful contours in almost any area of your face and give you a rejuvenated appearance.
What is Juvederm Voluma® XC?
Voluma® stands for the filler’s ability to replace the lost volume in the skin. This loss is due to the depletion of collagen in the skin, and loss of facial fat. Through this dermal filler, this lost volume is replaced. The XC stands for the extra comfort that is provided by the lidocaine, a local anesthetic, found in the filler.
Who are good candidates for a Voluma® treatment?
The filler has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of lost facial volume. It has been used effectively and safely in individuals of any color and skin type in both men and women. Our doctors at Riverside Medical Arts embody reputation by meeting patient safety standards at all times.
What can I expect after my Voluma® session?
A patient can expect temporary side effects from a dermal filler injection in the treatment sites. These include redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, and mild pain. These symptoms are often tolerable as reported by most of our patients. They may even return to their regular activities immediately after the injections. However, patients are to follow their doctor’s instructions carefully to avoid the risk for infection and other complications.
