Juvéderm Voluma® XC

What is Juvéderm Voluma?

Juvéderm Voluma XC is a dermal filler used to correct areas of age-related volume loss in the deep cheek tissues, as well as for chin augmentation, to restore a more youthful appearance. Aging has many effects on the skin and face, and volume loss in the cheeks is one of them. Descending fat stores, sagging skin, and gradual bone density loss all cause your face to lose volume in the cheek area over time.

Juvéderm Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved filler for use specifically in the midface area, instantly adding volume and lift to the cheeks for a fuller, more youthful look. This product has been uniquely developed to be smoother and more supportive than other hyaluronic acid fillers, making it both easier to inject and better able to provide a more natural look and feel with better lifting power than other HA fillers within the Juvéderm line.

Voluma XC is a smooth gel that contains two ingredients: hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that is always present in the body, but which becomes less prevalent with aging. Its purpose is to help the skin retain its moisture content and softness by binding to and retaining water molecules. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic used to maximize your comfort during treatment.

Voluma XC - Dr. Jessica Krant in NYC

The Juvéderm Process

As with all dermal fillers, this injectable hyaluronic acid gel is injected with a fine needle that facilitates a nearly unnoticeable experience. Using this needle, Dr. Krant injects Voluma XC under the skin in the desired area for chin or cheek augmentation. The gel works instantly to lift and add volume to the area, restoring a youthful look and temporarily reversing the signs of volume loss.

Although the formula includes lidocaine as an anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable, Dr. Krant may be able to provide a topical numbing cream beforehand to fully complete the experience for people concerned about the sensation.

Juvéderm Voluma patients often don’t need touch-up treatments for over a year, but whenever you feel like you might need a maintenance injection to maintain your appearance, you can call our office for an evaluation and additional treatment.

Results of Juvéderm Voluma

Results of Juvéderm injectable gel fillers are almost immediate, although your skin tissue will continue incorporating the formula into itself for several days following your appointment. Common side effects include bruising, redness, sensitivity, and bleeding, but none should last longer than several hours to a few days. Rare but more serious risks include filler injection into unwanted deep vessels, which can lead to tissue death or blindness. For this reason, seeing a properly trained physician is extremely important.
