Injectable dermal fillers are a popular tool in many of our patients’ anti-aging arsenal. While most fillers are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, others, like JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, are used to restore loss of facial volume, creating a fuller, more youthful look.
What is Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ XC?
Like other dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is formulated specifically to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks and is also used for augmenting the chin region to lend a subtle improvement to your entire profile.
Every filler in the JUVÉDERM® family is formulated differently to treat specific areas of the face and different severities of fine lines and wrinkles, allowing for a totally customizable experience when applied by the skilled hands of seasoned professionals like our experts at Evolve.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is JUVÉDERM<sup>®</sup> VOLUMA™ XC Right for Me?
Your treatment plan with us will be customized based on your individual needs, medical history, and aesthetic goals. We’ll discuss all of this and more at your consultation, where we’ll determine which treatments will be the right fit to address your concerns and give you the best results.
For example, if you are concerned with loss of volume in the lip area, we would most likely not use JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC for the lips, as other dermal fillers are formulated specifically to address this part of the face. However, we also use JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC alongside other injectables, like BOTOX® and other fillers, to craft the look you wish to attain.
Is JUVÉDERM<sup>®</sup> VOLUMA™ XC Treatment Safe?
Yes! JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC was approved by the FDA in 2013. Hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers, is found naturally in the body. Its safety has been extensively studied, and thousands of people worldwide undergo treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers every day.
What Will My JUVÉDERM<sup>®</sup> VOLUMA™ XC Treatment Look Like?
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is administered just like other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers: through several quick injections to targeted areas of your face, like the cheeks or chin. Each session typically last less than thirty minutes.
Are There Side Effects to JUVÉDERM<sup>®</sup> VOLUMA™ XC?
Side effects of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC are usually restricted to the localized injection sites, where you might experience some redness, swelling, soreness, itchiness, and bleeding. These side effects are typically mild and go away within a few days, but a cold compress or ice can help alleviate any discomfort you may experience.
When Will I See the Results of JUVÉDERM<sup>®</sup> VOLUMA™ XC?
Results of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC filer are immediate, and your cheeks will look noticeably fuller after treatment. Our expert staff members take special care to administer VOLUMA™ XC injections strategically to ensure natural-looking, not overdone, results.
Is There Any Downtime Associated with JUVÉDERM<sup>®</sup> <span class="txt-inline-block">VOLUMA™ XC?</span>
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is a non-surgical treatment that requires no downtime, and you can resume daily activities immediately following your session.
