Juvedérm® Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. Made of hyaluronic acid (a natural occurring substance found in skin), this soft, pliable gel is indicated for cheek augmentation.
Juvederm® Voluma XC works to reverse the signs of aging by instantly lifting, sculpting, and contouring the cheek region. The injections are nearly painless as the product contains lidocaine and is injected deeper into the skin where there are fewer nerves. During a Juvéderm Voluma treatment session, your provider will make a series of injections to your cheek area. To ensure Voluma is evenly distributed, your provider will gently massage the treatment area. The number of injections you require to achieve optimal results will be determined by your provider. After treatment, ice will be applied to reduce swelling and redness.
Immediately after treatment, you can expect an increase in facial volume and fullness and a gentle lifting of sagging skin around the cheek area. Since it is normal to experience some facial swelling around the treatment area, it may take up to two weeks for you to see your full results. The results from Juvéderm® Voluma can last up to two years, and you will only require touch-up treatments after this time to maintain your desired contours.
Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
