The Juvederm family of fillers are injectable gels made from modified hyaluronic acid (HA).
HA is a complex sugar naturally found in the human body, helping the skin to retain moisture and softness. Juvederm Voluma XC instantly adds volume and lift for facial sculpting and contouring in the mid-face or jawline, while Juvederm XC is used to fill deeper lines for a smoother appearance in the lip and lower face.
A more youthful profile starts with the apples of your cheeks. Cheeks are full and round when we are young. That’s why people commonly refer to the cheek as an apple. As you age, the cheeks lose volume and the skin may sag. What we see is jowls and often don’t realize that this is caused by a loss of fullness, or what the experts call age-related volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to 2 YEARS with optimal treatment. The results are a fresh and very natural look. Everyone will notice but won’t know why you look so youthful.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is very popular among our patients because:
- No downtime is required
- Results are immediate and long-lasting – up to 2 years!
- It’s non-invasive and safe
- Treatment sessions are fast and pain-free
What to expect during your treatment
Before injecting Voluma XC, a numbing cream will be applied to your cheeks to minimize discomfort. The nurse or doctor will then inject the filler deep into your skin beneath the muscles in several locations, following the natural contour of your cheeks. With each injection, they gently massage the area to distribute it evenly under your skin.
After your treatment
Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to resume normal activities immediately. Bruising and swelling are not common with Voluma XC, but if it does occur it usually dissipates completely within three days. The effects of Voluma XC are immediate, but it may take a few weeks to see the full results of your treatment. Because Voluma XC is injected so deep within the facial muscles, the results last much longer than other hyaluronic dermal fillers. You can expect to experience the rejuvenating effects of Voluma XC for up to 2 years!
