How do I prepare for VOLUMA?
1. Is Your Provider Adequately Trained?
When considering VOLUMA or any other cosmetic procedure, DO YOUR RESEARCH! It is important to know the qualifications of your injector. Your procedure should be done in an accredited medical spa that is clean and well maintained.
2. Be Comfortable with Your Provider
Your provider should educate you on your procedure and answer any questions you may have prior to beginning your treatment. Feel comfortable asking how many times they have performed the procedure and ask to view previous patient photos. COMMUNICATION IS KEY!
Know what to expect:
1. Does it hurt?
The truth is that everyone has a different threshold of pain. Some patients have no pain at all, while others describe the pain as minimal. The good news is a topical anesthetic and/or ice packs can be applied prior to your procedure helping to minimize any possible discomfort.
2. Are the results immediate?
Patients may experience mild swelling, minimal bruising and/or tenderness to touch. The results are seen immediately post injection.
3. How long does VOLUMA last?
VOLUMA typically lasts around 18 months.
