What Is It?
JUVÉDERM Voluma XC® is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. It is an injectable gel that is approved for deep injection in the cheek area. Whereas its sister filler, JUVÉDERM XC, smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC adds volume to the cheek area and is clinically proven to last up to two years.
How Does It Work?
JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC is a hyaluronic acid filler, derived from a naturally-occurring, hydrating substance. In its natural form, hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in the skin and joints. Hyaluronic fillers are synthetic, biodegradable versions of those naturally-occurring sugars and are considered to be extremely safe.
Our nurse injectors will consult with you prior to your appointment to determine how to best utilize the dermal filler for your skin’s needs. Within 24 hours after your appointment, you should be able to resume normal activities. Side effects are moderate and generally last two to four weeks. Common side effects may include temporary reactions at the treatment site, such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration and itching.
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is formulated with 0.3% powdered lidocaine to help provide a more comfortable experience during and after treatment.
How Many Syringes Will I Need?
The number of syringes needed will depend on your age, the amount of volume loss and the amount of correction desired. Schedule a free consultation below with our expert nurse injector to determine your treatment plan.
