Collagen is responsible for providing suppleness and structure to our skin. However, in our mid-20s, the collagen in our cheeks depletes, making it more likely to develop wrinkles. Over time, our cheeks may begin to lose definition and contours. Fortunately, dermal fillers and injectables in Houston, TX, can reverse the signs of aging and keep your skin looking young.
Dr. Layton offers various treatments to help replace lost cheek volume. Contact us to learn more about how Voluma in Houston could slow the signs of aging and restore your confidence.
Aging is inevitable. While we all wish we could look youthful forever, the reality is that our bodies and appearances change over time. But for some people, these natural changes occur faster. Premature aging could occur due to common factors, including:
You could correct or improve these habits by making lifestyle changes and undergoing medical procedures. Contact us today if you wish to speak to our team about how you could benefit from Voluma.
Like other Juvederm treatments, candidates for Voluma must be at least 21 years old. In addition, Juvederm products contain hyaluronic acid, which is compatible with the body and unlikely to cause severe allergic reactions. That said, if you are not pregnant or breastfeeding, have healthy skin, and are not suffering from severe drug allergies (e.g., lidocaine), you are probably a perfect candidate for this treatment.
While anyone 21 and older could use fillers to reverse the signs of aging, there is an ideal age range for best results. Because signs of aging become more visible during this time, most patients who use Voluma are between 30 and 40 years old. So, if you fall in this category, using this anti-aging treatment is an effective way to rejuvenate your cheeks.
Voluma is one of the most user-friendly cosmetic treatments because it is minimally invasive and non-surgical. Some treatments involve a long recovery process, but dermal fillers only require one appointment to complete the service.
We will use your initial consultation to establish your care plan. First, Dr. Layton will examine the condition of your cheeks and skin, discuss your appearance goals, and gather general information about you, such as your medical history and any cosmetic treatments you have used. Then, our team will come up with the best course of treatment that fulfills your desires.
While this is a simple treatment procedure, there are still specific things you must do to prepare. For example, if applicable, you must stop taking blood-thinning medications and anti-inflammatory drugs at least five days before your appointment.
Additionally, you should avoid using sunscreens, harsh chemical exfoliants, and other skincare products that might cause skin irritation. Generally, these pre-treatment guidelines help ensure the process is successful and effective.
Your procedure appointment will take about 15 to 60 minutes, depending on your goals and skin. Before the treatment, we will cleanse your face before applying a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Most of our patients report that these injections are painless and quick. However, if you are sensitive to needles, we recommend you use an approved pain reliever or take breaks between injections.
After treatment, we will ask you to follow several instructions to help you get back to your normal daily schedule. Post-care guidelines include:
We might also advise you to sleep with your body in an elevated position to help the filler settle correctly beneath your skin. Dr. Layton can offer sound advice to ensure your smooth recovery after receiving Voluma treatments.
While you cannot stop time, you can temporarily stop the effects of facial aging with the proper aesthetic treatment. Voluma is the perfect solution to enjoy natural-looking and long-lasting results.
