Juvederm Voluma XC
As you age, you may notice that gravity begins to take its toll on your face. The natural aging process leads to wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume in your skin. The result can be the appearance of jowls, drooping cheeks, or a persistent tired or sad expression. Luckily, medical technology has provided us with a way to restore volume and lift a drooping expression, improving facial contour and taking years off your appearance.
What is Juvederm Voluma XC?
You may have heard of Juvederm XC, an injectible filler which smooths folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Juvederm Voluma XC is also a filler, but it works to restore volume to the cheeks. Your entire face will experience a subtle lift – just dramatic enough to give you a more youthful appearance, but without the severe look of a surgical facelift.
Voluma is composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a substance naturally found in your skin which aids in hydration. As we age, we tend to lose HA, so our skin loses volume and elasticity. Juvederm Voluma XC simply replaces what is missing from your skin.
There are many benefits to Juvederm Voluma XC, such as:
- The only FDA-approved filler for the cheek area
- Results last up to two years
- It’s easy – get your injections in our office, and resume normal activities 24 hours later
Are there any side effects to Juvederm Voluma XC?
Side effects are generally mild, if any occur at all. Tenderness or swelling may occur at the injection site. Some bruising, discoloration, pain or itching in the cheeks may occur. Side effects generally last two to four weeks, whereas the positive results of Voluma can be expected to last up to two years.
