JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is the first FDA approved filler specifically formulated to enhance the cheeks while gently lifting the jowls to reveal a smoother jawline. This is a versatile and effective injectable designed for adults age 21 and older who are seeking a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment to restore facial fullness and volume.
Patients typically enjoy results that last for up to two years after treatment, with only minor touch-ups needed after this period to maintain results.
What Is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC?
Our skin sags as we age, which can cause our cheeks to look hollow. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the first filler that is FDA approved and specifically formulated to enhance the cheeks by restoring age-related volume loss.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body that helps maintain the skin’s volume and elasticity, and is proven to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks and around the cheekbones.
Unlike most fillers, which are typically injected into the nasolabial folds like your laugh lines, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC goes deeper and is applied to the top of the cheekbones. This allows physicians to reverse the signs of aging by restoring lost volume and lifting the face.
Is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC Right for Me?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is intended for adults who are age 21 and over, and is designed for patients who are seeking a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment to restore facial fullness and volume. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a safe and effective treatment for patients experiencing volume loss in their midface area, as well as individuals with poorly defined cheekbones.
If you suffer from severe allergies or are allergic to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins, you should not receive JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC treatments. Your Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery Provider will conduct a full examination to determine if it is safe for you to receive JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC treatment.
What Results Can I Expect With JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC?
Immediately after your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC treatment, you can expect an increase in facial volume and fullness, as well as a gentle lift of sagging skin around the cheek area. Patients enjoy replenished facial fullness, regained youthful contours, and restoration of volume and shape to their cheeks.
Results vary for each patient, but typically JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC fillers last up to two years after receiving injections, and you will only require touch-up treatments after this time for maintenance.
What Should I Expect With JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC?
An Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery Provider will conduct an in-depth consultation with you to understand your concerns and goals, and to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs, including the number of injections required to achieve your desired results.
We’ll begin your treatment by cleaning and preparing your targeted area. The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is then injected into your cheek area using a fine needle by a Specialist, who may use their fingers to massage the treatment area for even distribution. Ice may also be applied to the treatment area to reduce swelling and redness. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injections can typically be completed in a 30- to 60-minute office procedure.
After your treatment, you will be provided with post-care instructions and should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.
Does JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC Have Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC are swelling, bruising, temporary redness, lumps, and tenderness. These are all temporary responses that generally only last two to four weeks.
Is There Any Downtime with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC?
Recovery time is minimal, which means you can return to your normal daily activities after the procedure. However, we do not recommend intense exercise or sun exposure within the first 24 hours after treatment. Aftercare is also very simple and will be discussed with you during your consultation.
