What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC?
As we age, many patients find that they develop hollowing around the cheeks due to diminished collagen and volume loss that occur over the years. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) that is specifically designed to add volume to the mid-facial region. By enhancing the contour of this area to create a more youthful shape, you can rejuvenate your overall facial appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first FDA-approved product of its kind to treat volume loss in the cheek area. It has shown to last up to two years, making it one of the longest-lasting cosmetic injectables available.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC used for?
The cheeks tends to lose volume and take on a “deflated” look as we age, often developing fine lines and wrinkles as a result. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a special JUVÉDERM® formula that was created for the purpose of adding fullness to the mid-facial region to combat these common age-related concerns. To achieve a lift from the inner layers of the dermis, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is injected at a deeper level. This innovative dermal filler is also formulated with a local anesthetic (0.3% Lidocaine) to help ensure your comfort during treatment.
How long does a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment take?
The specifics of your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC session will be discussed with you prior to treatment. The amount of time your injectable session takes will ultimately depend on how much formula you require to achieve your aesthetic goals. In general, an individual session for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can typically be completed in under 30 minutes. If you would like to minimize any potential discomfort caused by the injections, you can opt to receive complimentary topical numbing, which adds an additional 15 minutes to your total treatment time.
Does treatment hurt?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injections are typically well-tolerated by our patients. This is because the formula was created with the topical anaesthetic Lidocaine. For additional numbing, you can choose to receive a topical numbing cream that we offer complimentary with your treatment. Our goal is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible. If you have any questions about what to expect during your treatment, please feel free to ask.
