|Before & After Photos|
After your VolumaLift Treatment: Do not exercise the day of the treatment to minimize bruising. Continue to avoid Medications that are on our “Medications to Avoid List” a few days after injection. Also continue to take Arnica if it was prescribed. By continuing to avoid certain medications and taking your Arnica you will help heal any bruising that you endure. If you have had Sculptra injections, massage the injected areas in a circular manner 5 times per day for minutes for days. Results are immediate. There may be a little swelling for 2 to 3 days and mild bruising. Schedule your injections so that you have a 2 to 3 day period off from work. You will experience mild to moderate bruising which can be covered up with make up by the 2 to 3 rd day. Results for VolumaLift will last 6 to 24 months (depending on which fillers were used).
VolumaLift Follow Up: A 2 week follow up after your first injection is optional but strongly recommended especially if this is your first treatment with Dr. Rubinstein. Sometimes there can be some persistent lumpiness at the injection sites that can be massaged and smoothed out. This should not be done before 2 weeks as there may be some residual swelling rather than lumpiness.
How to Prolong the Duration of Your VolumaLift Results: Duration of effect ranges from 4 to 6 months in the lips, to 6 months in the cheek folds and up to 8 to 12 months in areas of the face that have little motion or expression such as the under eye lid hollows, nose, cheeks, and jaw line. In areas that experience a lot of motion such as the eyebrow furrows, lips, chin, and crows feet, injecting Botox to relax those areas at the time of your Restylane injection will double the duration of Restylane effect as excess motion breaks down Restylane just like your own bodies collagen. Smoking cessation and minimizing over exposure to sun will further prolong the effects.
Please order your Betacaine plus numbing cream prior to your injection through our office. Expect 7 days for delivery.
VolumaLift Potential Risks: The most common potential side effect is bruising. There are rare cases of allergic reaction at the injection sites manifested by itching and redness which resolves after a few months.
VolumaLift What to Expect: The procedure entails injecting multiple syringes of filler at time to replace lost facial volume. For example, up to 8 syringes of Restylane is often injected at a time. For your comfort, numbing cream and numbing injections are used to provide an almost pain free experience.
