Voluma in Staten Island, NY
Dr. Decorato offers Voluma™ treatments to patients throughout New York and New Jersey, including Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Elizabeth, Newark, Jersey City, and Perth Amboy.
Voluma™ is a type of Juvederm® injectable filler that uses hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. If you have lines and wrinkles in your face or lack of volume, it is likely from lack of hyaluronic acid, which everyone naturally has in their body. When this happens, you tend to lose some of your skin’s tautness and volume. Voluma™ helps provide better volume to your chin, cheeks and cheekbones, as well as your jaw line.
Is Voluma™ Right For Me?
If you are an adult that is not happy with the volume of your cheeks, cheekbones or jaw line and are physically healthy, you are a good candidate for receiving the Voluma™ injections. It is more common in older adults because lack of tightness and volume in your skin is caused by the natural aging process. However, some younger adults do suffer from lack of hyaluronic acid in their face, which Voluma™ can help correct.
The Cost Of Voluma™ In New York Or New Jersey
The total price for Voluma™ varies for each patient. Each case is unique, and pricing and financing will be discussed during your consultation at Dr. Decorato’s Staten Island office.
Voluma™ is a type of injectable filler that flows smooth through the top layers of your skin. A qualified doctor can have it done quickly, usually as little as 15 minutes from beginning to end. You can get a topical anesthetic that helps numb the area, such as Lidocaine, to decrease discomfort from the needle. Very thin needles are used, so most patients have no problem completing the procedure with no or little numbing agent. Once the area is numbed, several injections are used to insert the Voluma™ solution into your problem areas. You can easily get this done during your lunch hour, and you can return to normal activities right away.
Recovery After Voluma™
While you can return to normal activities right away, you should try to take 24 hours off after the treatment if possible. During this time, be careful not to touch your face and apply a cold compress if you notice redness, swelling or bruising. Avoid strenuous activities for a few days or until the side effects wear off. Side effects can last up to 4 weeks and include redness, pain, itching, swelling, lumps, tenderness, and bruising. The long-term results last about 9-12 months.
