Why a Dermal Filler Certification Matters:

These days, it seems as though you can undergo a dermal filler treatment from anyone who offers them.  Medical spas, aesthetic centers, and even hair salons are getting into the dermal filler game by offering their clients the promise of facial rejuvenation with just a quick treatment session.

But before you make an appointment with one of these practices, consider this – if you undergo a dermal filler treatment from a professional without certification, you’re putting yourself at serious risk.

A dermal filler certification shows that a medical professional has gone through rigorous training in order to produce the best results possible.  After all, dermal fillers aren’t just injections; when performed correctly, they can subtly enhance a person’s facial features, add youthful volume, and even facial imbalances that might otherwise need surgery to correct.  That’s why it’s so important to work with a professional who knows precisely where to place dermal filler injections for the best results.

At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, MS, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Craig is a highly trained dermal filler expert.  Dr. Craig approaches dermal fillers with the same care and attention as he would a client undergoing a major surgery.  His ultimate goal is to listen to each patient and discuss how dermal fillers can address their specific needs. 

Dr. Craig has grown Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery into one of the top providers of dermal filler injections in the state of Mississippi.  Dr. Craig is so experienced with fillers that he has also been named to the Medical Advisory Board for Allergan, a pharmaceutical company that makes Botox, Juvederm, Volbella, Vollure, and Voluma.

Ask Dr. Craig a Question

Have you lost your cheeks?

Voluma-Have-you-lost-your-cheeks-Accent-Plastic-Reconstruction-Surgery-in-Tupelo-MSWondering which filler is right to unlock your inner youth?

Juvederm Voluma.

Why Voluma?

While Accent Plastic & Reconstruction Surgery offers a wide range of fillers and anti-aging injections – including Botox and Juvederm.

Voluma has quickly become my favorite filler,” he says.  “It’s so powerful with facial rejuvenation, as it restores mid-face volume and the youthful natural curve from the mid-face to the cheek.”

Voluma is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that’s designed to replace lost volume in the cheek area.  As we age, skin loses collagen and elastin, both of which are vital building blocks for facial volume and elasticity.  As a result, cheeks tend to sag and become sallow, which leads to pronounced wrinkles around the cheeks and eyes.  Severe cheek sagging can even contribute to jowls, which is why many patients are concerned with replacing lost cheek volume.

Voluma is comprised of a thicker hyaluronic acid gel, which provides instant lift for sagging cheeks.  Additionally, the hyaluronic acid kick-starts collagen and elastin production, leading to long-lasting results.

In fact, results from a single Voluma session can last for up to two years!  Additionally, the results from Voluma are incredibly natural-looking; they also provide a softer appearance, meaning you won’t look “obvious.”

Voluma is performed in office with a topical numbing cream; mild side effects include slight bruising and swelling at the injection site.

Ask Dr. Craig a Question

Will Voluma Make My Cheeks Fat?

If you’re looking for the most naturally youthful appearance possible, it’s likely you’ve stumbled across Juvederm Voluma during your research.  As we age, the face loses essential fats that are critical to maintaining youthful volume in the cheeks.  The end result is a hollow, drooping look that can’t be fixed with any anti-wrinkle cream or Botox injection.

That’s why more people are turning to Juvederm Voluma for younger-looking results that look incredibly natural.  Yet many people are afraid to introduce Voluma into their anti-aging regimen for one reason: they’re afraid it might make their cheeks look fat.

So does Voluma increase facial volume in an unflattering way – or will your cheeks look smooth and healthy?  Let’s find out!

All About Juvederm Voluma

This innovative treatment – which was recently approved by the FDA – is used to enhance volume and contouring in the facial area, particularly around the cheeks.  Voluma is comprised of a thicker hyaluronic acid gel; hyaluronic acid is a compound found naturally within the skin, which promotes the production of collagen and elastin.

Once injected into the cheeks, the thicker consistency of the gel is used to immediately increase the cheeks, promoting a more youthful look.  Results typically last for up to two years, which makes this one of the most low-maintenance anti-aging injections around.  What’s more, it has little to no side effects, which is one of the reasons why it was approved by the FDA.

But the question remains: Will it make your cheeks – and your face – look fat?

It Depends!

Like with most anti-aging treatments, your results will depend upon the professional who is administering the treatments.  For example, if an aesthetician is too heavy-handed with a Botox treatment, you might end up with the “frozen” face that’s a dead giveaway of Botox.  The same rule of thumb applies with Juvederm Voluma – if it’s administered by anyone other than a professional, you might not get the results you’re looking for.

That’s why you should entrust your face to Dr. Mark Craig of Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, Mississippi.  As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Craig has the insight, experience, and subtle touch that can help produce the most natural-looking results.
