Loss of volume in the cheeks and midface is a common sign of aging. Injectable dermal fillers can be a non-surgical solution to this issue and offer a refreshed, youthful appearance. JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is a product specifically designed for this purpose.
What is JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC?
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is an injectable filler made using hyaluronic acid. The formula was specifically designed to be used in the cheeks and midface. It adds volume and gives the face a lifted, youthful look. It is suitable for deeper injections, making it useful for cases of more significant volume loss.
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC Procedure
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is injected using a small, fine needle. The product contains lidocaine in its formula to minimize any discomfort. Injections can be completed quickly, sometimes taking as little as thirty minutes.
How Long Does JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC Last?
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is one of the longest-lasting injectable products available. The body naturally breaks down hyaluronic acid, meaning that the results are not permanent, however, JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC can last up to two years. After that, you can repeat injections to maintain the results if you choose.
Like most injectable treatments, JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC causes some minor and temporary side effects. Most patients experience some bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. This typically subsides after about 24 hours.
