Orange County – Voluma
Aging is natural and getting older is fine, but that does not mean the residents of Orange County and its surrounding areas have to embrace all that comes with it. Today, many of the facial changes that occur during the aging process can be addressed with a variety of non-surgical, dermal filler and/or neurotoxin injections.
Juvéderm Voluma is Available in Orange County
One of the best facial fillers available in Orange County is Juvéderm Voluma. Dr. Kevin Sadati is a facial plastic surgeon and expert dermal filler injector who offers a variety of neurotoxin (e.g., BOTOX) and dermal filler facial rejuvenation products, and procedures at his office in Orange County.
What is Voluma?
Juvéderm Voluma is a dermal filler gel consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar in the skin. Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, allergy testing prior to treatment with this dermal filler in Orange County is not necessary.
The Voluma Difference
This dermal filler has been exclusively designed to address lost volume in the face: Juvéderm Voluma is referred to as a high-density hyaluronic gel. It is the density that gives this product the ability to move beyond just filling wrinkles and into actually increasing facial volume. Another benefit of this product is its ability to provide long-lasting results: The results achieved with this high-density hyaluronic acid gel can last up to 2 years, which is nearly four times longer than the other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers available in Orange County. Furthermore, the other temporary instant fillers currently available cannot provide the patient with the level of contour enhancements that Voluma offers.
Similarities Between Voluma and the Other Dermal Fillers in the Juvéderm Family of Products
Since Voluma is a hyaluronic acid gel, patients enjoy the same soft, natural feel that Juvéderm is known for. Just like the other products in its family, Voluma contains lidocaine, which is a numbing agent that makes the procedure more comfortable for the patient. In addition, just as with the other less dense hyaluronic acid fillers, Dr. Sadati can use a micro cannula to inject Voluma. This decreases the likelihood of bruising and further improves the experience for the patient.
What Areas of the Face Can Voluma Treatments Address?
Although there are a variety of immediate-action volumizers on the market, Juvéderm Voluma is unique because it was specifically developed to contour the chin, restore the cheekbones and add volume to the mid-cheek area. In addition, Voluma combines with the naturally occurring elastin and collagen in the skin to improve its elasticity, and its structure, creating a smooth, natural-looking result.
Voluma Provides Individuals in Orange County with Instant Cheekbones
Full cheeks are frequently considered a sign of youth and ample chin projection enhances the balance of an individual’s facial contours; but, many times the chin is overlooked. However, as an experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati knows the importance of each facial feature, which is why he takes the time to create personalized treatment plans for every one of his patients.
Using Juvéderm Voluma, Dr. Sadati can re-plump the cheeks and balance the patient’s chin profile to create a vibrant, more youthful-looking appearance.
Reasons People Choose Dr. Kevin Sadati
Dr. Sadati is one of the top facial plastic surgeons in Orange County. He is also an expert dermal filler injector. Dr. Kevin Sadati has extensive experience injecting a variety of FDA-approved dermal fillers. These fillers include Sculptra, Radiesse, Restylane and Voluma.
When injecting dermal fillers or neurotoxins, experience, artistic vision and precision are vital to attaining an optimal result. As each product is injected somewhat differently, the technique Dr. Sadati uses depends on the filler or neurotoxin being injected as well as the area that is being addressed.
A Dermal Filler Consultation at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery
During the patient’s first appointment, Dr. Kevin Sadati will ask questions about what he or she would like to accomplish with a non-surgical dermal filler treatment.
Patients will need to provide a list of their current medications, information related to their medical history (including surgical procedures) as well as a list of allergies (if applicable).
Dr. Sadati will examine the patient’s skin to determine if Voluma can provide the patient with the results he or she desires. Patients may need to discontinue taking certain medications, vitamins and herbal supplements prior to their dermal filler treatment with Dr. Kevin Sadati at his office in Orange County.
Products to discontinue may include:
- allergy medications;
- fish oils;
- anti-inflammatory medications; and
- blood thinners.
Dr. Sadati prefers that his patients discontinue these products prior to the dermal filler treatment because they thin the blood: Thin blood increases the amount of bruising and bleeding a patient experiences.
Please keep in mind that patients should always speak to their prescribing physician before discontinuing or cutting back on any of their medications.
1. Before starting the treatment, Dr. Kevin Sadati cleans the areas being addressed.
2. He applies a topical anesthetic to the skin. This numbs the skin; thus, helping the patient feel comfortable throughout the procedure.
3. Dr. Sadati sterilizes the area in which he will be administering the Voluma.
4. He may decide to sterilize the treated area once he has completed the injection as well.
Side Effects Following Treatment with Voluma
Common side effects include inflammation, redness, bruising, itching and tenderness. If lumps develop under the skin, these can be massaged out. Gently massage the area for five minutes at a time, at least three times a day. This should be adhered to for the initial 5 days following the dermal filler treatment.
Results are immediately evident. Following dermal filler injections, there is virtually no downtime. Many patients return to work the same day.
