High sculpted cheekbones… not just for supermodels
Providing among the best Voluma Beverly Hills can offer, Dr. Behrooz Torkian treats people from all walks of life who want to restore youthful fullness to the mid face area. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Torkian has thousands of facial procedures to his credit including complex facial reconstructions. Although placing injectable filler is far less complicated than surgery, it still requires a deep knowledge of facial musculature and nerves to avoid complications from incorrect placement.
Voluma or Juvéderm – are they different?
Voluma is long lasting dermal filler, which lasts up to two years. Like Juvederm, the active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the joints and connective tissue of the body. The breakthrough with Voluma is a thicker gel, which can be injected deeper than other fillers. It is specially formulated to lift and contour the cheeks and add volume to the cheekbones and jawline. Additionally, to enhance patient comfort, Voluma gel contains lidocaine, which is an anesthetic that is used in other procedures, such as liposuction, to keep patients comfortable.
A different generation of facial filler
Voluma is part of a large family of skin rejuvenation products manufactured by Allergan, including Botox and Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid has a great capacity to hold moisture in the tissues. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid decrease, causing sagging skin and hollowing cheeks. Injecting Voluma in the mid face area creates a subtle lift in the lower face.
This smoothes out wrinkles and decreases sagging in the jowls, which adds to the overall rejuvenation. The benefits of Voluma last longer than any other facial filler, up to 2 years in many patients. To ensure long lasting results, patients can have touch up treatments of Voluma to extend the results.
Voluma is fast, safe and comfortable
Voluma treatments take less than an hour and are safe for people of all ethnicities, carrying no risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring. Also, the hyaluronic acid in Voluma is not animal based and requires no allergy testing.
The lidocaine contained within Voluma is an anesthetic that ensures patients do not feel discomfort during the injection procedure. The injection is done using a very fine gauge needle which contributes to patients reporting that they are very comfortable receiving Voluma.
After treatment, some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising or redness. Not all patients experience these effects but those who do find they are mild and resolve in a week. If it is needed, over the counter medication is enough to counter these effects. Delivering the safest and most comfortable Voluma treatment in Beverly Hills is routine at Torkian Facial Plastic Surgery.
Candidates for Voluma
There are very few restrictions connected with Voluma. People with allergies to lidocaine would not be eligible for Voluma. Before Dr. Torkian recommends Voluma to his Beverly Hills patients, he will ask questions to ensure this product is completely safe and that it will achieve the patient’s goals.
Most candidates are between 30 and 60 years of age who show moderate signs of aging due to loss of volume in the mid face area. Candidates particularly interested in Voluma tend to be those that are candidates for a facelift in Beverly Hills as well, but are not quite ready for a permanent solution quite yet.
For those with other signs of aging, Voluma can be combined with other treatments such as Botox to provide an overall rejuvenation of the face and jaw line.
Dr. Torkian specializes in procedures of the head, face and neck and is completely focused on providing among the best results from Voluma Beverly Hills can obtain. He has decades of experience providing facial procedures from complex reconstruction to non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. His attention to detail and elegant artistic approach have his patients praising his skills and referring their family and friends.
