If wrinkles and fine lines are making you appear old and tired, dermal fillers such as Voluma™ could be exactly the solution you seek to rejuvenate your appearance and regain your confidence. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers Voluma™ to men and women who live in and around Jacksonville. Voluma™ is injected by our nurse practitioner.
What Is Voluma™?
Voluma™ is a cosmetic treatment administered as a dermal filler. Each injection contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that eliminates wrinkles by filling in and smoothing skin. Voluma™ is currently the only FDA-approved injectable on the market that uses Vycross™ technology. Vycross™ is a gel-like substance that can quickly permeate the skin to fill in crevices and contours, resulting in firmer skin with improved volume and elasticity. Voluma™ is approved to replenish skin volume around the cheeks and mid-face region.
Benefits of Voluma™
Voluma™ remains one of the world’s most popular dermal fillers thanks to its effectiveness at lifting and filling in skin from within. Patients choose Voluma™ time and time again because the advanced Vycross™ technology and power of hyaluronic acid produce amazing, natural improvements in skin volume, hydration, and elasticity.
The benefits of Voluma™ include:
- Immediate results that last up to two years.
- No anesthesia or recovery time.
- All-natural ingredients.
- Quick and simple treatment.
- Produces smoother and healthier-looking skin.
- Provides a less invasive alternative to plastic surgery.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Voluma™?
Any adult over the age of 21 who is in overall good health may be a good candidate for this treatment. Voluma™ is suitable for anyone who desires more elasticity and volume in and around their cheeks and mid-face. In addition to enhancing volume, this product also diminishes fine lines and wrinkles in younger patients who have begun to show the earliest signs of aging. Older patients may also benefit from Voluma™ injections due to its ability to enhance volume and skin hydration.
How involved is the Voluma™ Procedure?
Voluma™ is a quick, painless and minimally invasive treatment when administered by our experienced professionals. We use only the most advanced medical devices and techniques to administer doses of this dermal filler precisely in the sites where it is needed. You may request topical anesthetics to prevent any possible discomfort, but most patients find them unnecessary. You will be able to return to work and all of your regular daily activities immediately following your treatment.
How Long Is The Recovery Period Following Voluma™?
Voluma™ injections require absolutely no recovery time since this is a minimally invasive treatment. The average patient will experience nothing more than minor redness around the injection sites. Other possible side effects include mild tenderness and possible itching, but these symptoms subside within 48 hours. We recommend you avoid massages and dental work for at least two weeks after the injections.
How Much Does Voluma™ Cost in Jacksonville?
The final cost of Voluma™ varies from patient to patient because each treatment is personalized. Because Voluma™ is an elective treatment, most insurance carriers won’t cover its costs. In addition to providing easy financing options, our office accepts checks, cash and all major credit cards to keep payments affordable for all patients.
