About voluma® xc

Worcester plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom offers Voluma® XC to rejuvenate the cheeks. By the makers of Juvéderm®, Voluma® XC is a dermal filler that replenishes lost volume, which makes it a great noninvasive alternative to a mid-facelift. Voluma’s formula is designed to add volume and fullness to the cheeks for a youthful appearance.

If you naturally have flat cheeks or have lost volume due to age, then Voluma® can bring great improvement. Not only does it restore volume, but it also hydrates the skin as well. Unlike other dermal fillers, Voluma® XC has been known to last at least a year. Call us today to set up your consult and say goodbye to sunken cheeks.

Voluma® XC: what to expect

The injection site will be properly cleaned and prepped before Voluma® XC is injected. The doctor will use a thin needle to inject the appropriate amount of filler into the apples of the cheeks until the desired fullness is achieved. The doctor may massage the area to make sure the product is evenly distributed.

After Voluma®, a patient may experience swelling, tenderness, firmness, or the appearance of lumps/bumps in the treatment site. Patients can expect the side effects to last 2 – 4 weeks. Patients wishing more fullness may choose to receive a touch-up treatment about 1 month after the initial treatment to obtain desired goals. Results should last for a year and after then, additional treatments may be needed.

Voluma® results

Dr. Ekstrom uses the Blaine Labs vibrator with all of his cosmetic injections to minimize discomfort during the injections. The doctor will carefully inject Voluma® into the needed areas of the face in less than 5-10 minutes.

You may return to your normal activities as soon as you feel able with minimal swelling, discoloration, and tenderness. You will see some results right away, but it usually takes about 7 days before the filler settles into the cheeks for your final results. The effects of Voluma® can last more than a year, at which time most patients schedule a follow up injection.

Salisbury Plastic Surgery

Dr. Ekstrom is a phenomenal doctor! She is warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She took all the time I needed during all my appointments and made me feel very comfortable. During the day of surgery she was full of energy and made me feel at ease with her warm bedside manner. I would recommend Dr. Ekstrom and Salisbury Plastic Surgery above anyone.

My experience with Dr. Ekstrom and her staff has been nothing but exceptional. After my initial visit with Dr. Ekstrom I knew I wanted her to do my procedure because she was very informative, gave me detailed explanation of what to expect and made me feel very comfortable. I love the look of my breasts and could not be any happier! Thank you Dr. Ekstrom, Kristen, and the whole team!
