Instead of packing on powder and makeup to create the illusion of a sculpted face, lift and contour your cheeks with JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC. Age-related volume loss in the cheek area occurs over time. This quick injectable gel will counteract the effect of aging, creating a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC filler addresses loss of facial volume in the cheek and mid-face areas. The filler is injected deep into the facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds by temporarily adding volume and structure. Treatment results are subtle but remarkably long-lasting.
How Does JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC Work?
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body that helps to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by retaining water, and add volume. The filler also has a small amount of lidocaine, an anesthetic that helps minimize discomfort during the procedure.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC places a smooth, long-lasting gel deep in the tissue, helping to attract moisture to the area and add to the overall volume and lift.
Who is a Candidate for JUVEDERM® VOLUMA™ XC?
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC is not recommended for adults who have:
- Severe allergies and a history of anaphylaxis
- Multiple severe allergies
- History of allergies to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins
Is JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC Painful?
Patients may experience some discomfort during and after the injection treatment, but shouldn’t feel any pain. The JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel contains lidocaine (an anesthetic) that helps minimize pain at the injection site.
During treatment, patients may feel some pressure — but no pain — as the gel is injected. It’s common to hear popping or crunching sounds as the needle is passed through the various levels of the facial tissues. This is normal and should not be cause for concern.
How Long Does it Take?
The length of treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area and the number of syringes of product used. The actual injections may take 15 minutes to one hour. Patients who request a topical numbing cream before treatment may need an extra 20-45 minutes.
How Long Does JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC Last?
The fillers are temporary, as they are naturally broken down and absorbed by the body over time. However, results are immediate and can last up to two years. Patients may need touch-up injections and repeat injections to maintain optimal correction. Regular touch-ups require less material (about half the amount) but help overall results last longer.
Patients should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure (like hot tubs or saunas), and consuming alcoholic beverages for 24 hours to prevent temporary swelling, redness, and/or itching at the injection sites. Patients can also ice the treatment area to help address any side effects.
Potential Side Effects and Risks
Side effects are uncommon but may last seven days or less. Patients may experience temporary injection site redness, pain or tenderness, itching, swelling, lumps/bumps, firmness, bruising, and discoloration.
