JUVEDERM® VOLUMA XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, an FDA-approved injectable filler, is designed to address facial volume loss, a common concern due to aging and the decline in collagen production. This treatment not only adds volume to the cheek area but also lifts and contours the cheeks, creating a more youthful appearance.
Why JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a great anti-aging treatment, addressing age-related volume loss in the cheeks. It can lift and add fullness to the cheek area, and also soften facial wrinkles and folds. The hyaluronic acid in the filler helps to restore lost volume, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance.
How Does It Work?
This hyaluronic acid filler is injected deep into the facial tissue to temporarily add volume and structure. It acts like natural, youthful fat pads over bony facial structures, attracting moisture to the area for added volume and lift. The product contains lidocaine for maximum comfort during the procedure.
How Comfortable Is the Treatment?
The treatment, which can range from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the areas addressed, is designed for patient comfort. Lidocaine in the filler reduces injection site pain, and a topical numbing cream can be used to minimize discomfort further. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC offers immediate results with effects proven to last up to two years. Touch-up and repeat injections might be needed for optimal correction, with less material required for subsequent injections.
What Is the Postcare?
After the treatment, it's advised to avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours to prevent temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection sites. Ice packs can be used to reduce swelling, and patients should consult their provider on when to apply makeup post-treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
One treatment is generally sufficient to achieve optimal results. However, since the correction is temporary, touch-up injections, maybe once a year, are recommended to maintain the desired outcome. Repeat injections typically require less material.
