Voluma in Miami, FL
Aging often produces loss of skin volume as a result of lower quantities of hyaluronic acid in the body. Voluma® is a dermal filler treatment that augments the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. In Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon in Aventura, FL is a leading provider of Voluma® and other cosmetic treatments.
What Is Voluma®?
Voluma® is the first FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that corrects the loss of skin volume in the mid-face and cheeks. Voluma® contains hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in healthy skin cells that binds with water and helps skin retain proper hydration and moisture. Voluma® restores volume and lifts the skin to reverse the visible effects of the aging process.
Benefits of Voluma®
Voluma® is a gel dermal filler that was developed specifically to add fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging. Voluma® uses Vycross™ technology, an extremely lightweight formula that allows the gel solution to pass through the skin and easily reshape the contours of the face. This formula is responsible for the unique lifting and firming benefits of Voluma®. Voluma® boasts a unique ability to lift the skin in and around the injection site, reducing the need to fill in wrinkles and fine lines around the areas surrounding the treatment. Because Voluma® is so effective, and its results last for almost two years, patients may save money by reducing the number of treatments required. Patients who have used other filler treatments previously are often impressed with the appearance and long-lasting results produced by Voluma®.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Voluma®?
Voluma® is FDA-approved for use in patients at least 21 years of age. Voluma® effectively softens developing lines and wrinkles in younger people showing early signs of aging, but people of any age may benefit from the treatments. Voluma® may also be used in combination with other dermal fillers such as Botox®.
How Should I Prepare For Voluma®?
Voluma® treatments have been proven safe and effective when performed by a qualified medical professional such as Dr. Rubinstein. It is important that you discuss any history of allergies and other medical conditions with Dr. Rubinstein prior to treatment and inform him if you have received any other injections in the recent past or if you are taking any medications. Dr. Rubinstein may recommend that avoiding certain medications, such as non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), ibuprofen, aspirin, Vitamin E, and certain supplements such as St. John’s Wort for several days prior to treatment.
How Is Voluma® Administered?
Voluma® is injected directly into the skin by way of micro-cannulas, which are long, flexible devices that resemble needles. The tips are blunt, and there is a hole on the side that contains the filler. Because cannulas cannot penetrate the skin on their own, in order to place the cannula, Dr. Rubinstein will insert and then remove needles from the skin. This technique requires fewer injections and reduces the amount of discomfort to the patient.
How Much Does Voluma® Cost In Miami?
Dr. Rubinstein’s office offers a variety of payment options to choose from, including easy financing methods, given that health insurance does not usually cover elective cosmetic procedures such as Voluma®. The office also accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards as forms of payment.
