Juvederm Voluma XC is the only FDA-approved filler, designed to instantly lift the face by restoring volume to the cheek area. What makes Voluma special is its smooth gel formula, providing an unmatched ability to sculpt facial contours. Voluma is composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. When injected under the skin, HA will draw in and hold moisture to plump wrinkles and provide shape to facial features. Juvederm Voluma XC also encourages the body’s natural production of Collagen, which in turn will continue to improve the skin’s appearance over time. *

The Juvederm Voluma XC treatment:
A treatment with Juvederm Voluma XC will take less than an hour in the office. Using a tiny needle, Voluma is placed under the skin, in the predetermined area. Before the injections, a topical anesthetic will be used to increase patient comfort. As Voluma is combined with Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, the injections cause very little discomfort.
The results from Juvederm Voluma XC can last up to two years or more, making the facial filler an excellent personal investment. Benefits from Voluma injections are immediately noticeable and will continue to improve over the following months. There is no downtime required after a Juvederm Voluma XC treatment, so patients are free to return to their normal routine that same afternoon. However, some people prefer to wait a day or two or until all redness and swelling have diminished.
Juvederm Voluma XC is considered extremely safe, although as with any injectable, there is a chance for tenderness, swelling, bruising, itching, and firmness at the injection site. These side effects will generally resolve completely within the next one to two weeks.
