Juvéderm Voluma XC
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm provides non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation. It is an injectable filler that offers patients a non-invasive treatment option for eliminating wrinkles, achieving smoother and tighter facial skin, and plumping the lips. These injectable fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that attracts and holds large amounts of water. This makes them great options for those who wish to achieve natural-looking results.
The aging process doesn’t just mean lines and wrinkles, it can also entail loss of volume in the cheek area.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA approved treatment to immediately add volume to your cheeks to improve your age-related problems. It also can provide a subtle lift to your cheeks, enhancing your face contour for a younger, fuller, and vibrant appearance. The formula is made up with the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid to promote an enthusiastic, lively profile.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR VOLUMA XC?
This treatment may be right for you if you’ve noticed a sagging or flattening cheek area and you are over the age 21. Juvéderm Voluma XC can help correct this issue for a more youthful, contoured profile. If you have allergic reactions like anaphylaxis, or to the proteins used to make Hyaluronic Acid, you should avoid this treatment. However, a consultation is necessary to determine your candidacy.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENTS LIKE?
The treatments are relatively short and the doctors will inject the solution into your cheek. After injection, the surgeon may gently massage the areas to stimulate the underlying tissues. The formula also includes lidocaine, or a type of anesthetic, to help numb the injection area and make the treatment more comfortable for you. It’s important to discuss further numbing agents if you are uncomfortable with the injection process.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING RECOVERY?
The most common side effect are generally temporary reactions at the injection site, including tenderness, firmness, swelling, bruising, pain, redness, and discoloration. These are usually moderate and don’t require any additional medical attention. With this non-surgical treatment, it’s recommended to return to your normal activities after 24 hours of downtime.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC?
Juvéderm Voluma XC immediately adds volume to your cheek areas to correct age-related deflation. You will also notice a subtle lift and contour, providing a youthful, rejuvenated profile. With optimal treatment, results from the treatment can last up to two years.
