The FDA-approved dermal filler, Voluma, can restore a youthful look to a patient's cheek bone by adding definition to hollow cheeks, where volume has been lost due to weight lost or aging. This injectable is administered inside the Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates office in Oklahoma City.
During the procedure the filler is injected into the cheek area to produce volume, which creates a fuller, more lifted cheek appearance. While the filler adds volume, it’s also effective in correcting lines and wrinkles around the cheek area with results lasting up to two years.
Dr. Chaplin in the BEST when in comes to injectable fillers! I look natural, youthful, and I couldn't be happier!
Voluma is injected into the skin with fine needles, so some patients may experience some minor pain from the initial prick. Numbing creams may be applied on the injection site to ease the patient’s discomfort. Patients also have the option to use lidocaine, which is mixed with the Voluma solution, to help provide anesthetic effects in and around the area.
I got lip fillers here and it was an awesome experience. Dr. Caplin did the procedure and did an amazing job. The whole staff was awesome as well, Lita was the best. I definitly recommend coming here for any procedure.
A treatment may last up to 30 minutes. Patients will be able to return to daily activities after several hours. There may be some swelling, discoloration and tenderness around the cheeks, but will subside after a few days. Results are readily evident, and can last up to 2 years.
I have visited four times. I have been so impressed with the staff. They are professional and patient to answer questions and explain options. I have especially appreciated Jessica. She is a guru for the face! Every time I visit I am so glad I went - Have benefited from Kybella, Restalyne and a peel so far.
I had a great experience both times I had procedures there. The staff is very professional and caring. Dr. Nuveen is a great Dr. and has done wonderful things to help boost my confidence. I've been told to shake my doctor's hand and tell him what a marvelous job he's done! He's definitely the nicest doctor I've ever been to, and really cared about what my expectations were.
Hyaluronic acid, Voluma’s main ingredient, is derived from natural substances found in the human body. Its main function is cell hydration, and with its cross-linking abilities, it is generally useful in helping facial areas that lack volume. Over time, the gel substance breaks down and is absorbed naturally by the body without any side effects.
Those who seek improved volume in the cheeks may consider Voluma as a noninvasive solution. The lack of cheek volume may be due to aging or the patient’s natural facial structure. The doctor will be able to recommend if Voluma is the best option during the initial consultation.
Right after treatment, patients will be able to resume to their normal routine with restriction on strenuous activities or any movement that may put pressure on the treated area. It may take up to 1 week before the derma filler settles within the cheek pockets.
Among derma fillers available in the market today, Voluma can last up to 2 years or longer. Reinjection varies as patients’ bodies process and break down hyaluronic acid at different rates.
