Skinjectables® Is Your Voluma XC Destination In Tucson, Arizona
Has your face fallen like a souffle? Fortunately, our Bartenders know how to fix flats! Put a little pop back in your cheeks to create lift and natural looking contour with longer lasting Voluma XC. Skinjectables are experts in reflation…not inflation. Get back those defined cheekbones and that coveted “Ogee curve” of years gone by without looking like a cartoon character.
Using an average of 1-2 syringes per cheek, this hyaluronic acid filler is designed to last for up to 2 years. More robust and stronger, for example, than the fillers we use in the lips, Voluma XC is injected along the cheekbones, temples and jawlines to give definition, reduce marionette lines and correct saggy jowls. A general rule of thumb is that for every decade of life over the age of 30, that’s how many syringes you’ll need for full correction. (Ex. A 60 year old could require 6 syringes.) Keep in mind it takes 5 syringes to fill a teaspoon!
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Your newly restored contour will naturally be broken down and metabolized by your body, and the length it lasts depends on just how quickly your body metabolizes the product. On average, Voluma XC® usually lasts 18-24 months but may need a “booster” treatment at 9-12 months.
ANY DO’S & DON’TS BEFORE OR AFTER?
To minimize your chances of bruising, we recommend avoiding ibuprofen and blood-thinning medications for 3 days before your injections. Avoidance of anti-inflammatories, vitamin E or fish oil and drinking alcohol for several days prior to your treatment can minimize some of these side effects. Conversely, taking Arnica Montana or eating fresh pineapple can reduce the risk of experiencing some of these side effects. Clients should avoid exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours after treatment.
DOES IT HURT?
Worried about the pain? Stop fretting! Our Bartenders use the smallest needles possible! If you’re super nervous, we can offer you a chill pack so YOU can chill and if that still isn’t enough, we’ll put you on our couch for a bit with a smear of topical numbing cream on until you relax. Once we get you in the chair, a few minutes is all we need to deliver the best “quickie” you’ve ever had- it literally takes only a few minutes for us to work our magic! Plus, VOLUMA XC® is made with lidocaine, an anesthetic, so any discomfort is even more minimized. The product is then injected into the cheeks through a series injections of using a small needle, restoring volume and contour immediately. Most treatments require less than 45 minutes to complete
WHAT’S THE DOWNTIME?
There really are very minimal side effects and virtually no downtime with this treatment. Make-up and your normal skincare routine can be utilized almost immediately as long as significant manipulation to the area is avoided. However, because everyone is different- most clients walk out of our bar totally street ready… and then there are others who tend to mildly bruise and swell. It really depends on your own individual physiology and body chemistry! Most people do swell a bit… generally, the morning after your injections is when you are going to be the most swollen. DON’T PANIC. This is normal and is actually expected to happen! Typically, you will be a little swollen and mildly tender for a few days, up to a week after your injections. It may be something that only you will notice, but most other people won’t. A week after your injections you will really be able to see what your new contours really look like.
