The procedure is often inappropriately dubbed the liquid facelift. Although dermal fillers do not yield the same results as surgery, they can improve or eliminate many wrinkles and folds with instant results and no downtime. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is designed for those seeking a lift that lasts. Dr. Shelton has been injecting Voluma since it was FDA approved in 2013 and is one of the most commonly injected fillers used in his practice. It can last up to two years, although its effect starts to diminish before then.
Voluma™ is a quick and comfortable process. Our skilled clinicians take great care to deliver slow, gentle injections to maximize comfort and minimize bruising. The procedure is completed in a matter of minutes, and the results are instant.
We highly recommend avoiding certain medications and supplements for three days prior to injections to minimize bruising. These include ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin,) Aleve. The following should be stopped a week prior: Vitamin E, and supplemental Ginseng, Ginko biloba, Ginger, Garlic tablets (not garlic in your cooking), or fish oil. No Aspirin should be consumed for ten days prior to fillers. We also advise avoiding strenuous activity immediately before your appointment.
