What is Juvederm Voluma® XC?
As we age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid, a hydrating substance that keeps the skin looking young and full. Juvederm Voluma® XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler designed to restore volume to lift and contour the cheeks and midface areas in patients over the age of twenty-one. It is the only filler that is proven to last up to two years in the cheek area, offering patients long-term results.
Who is a good candidate for Juvederm Voluma® XC?
Good candidates for Juvederm Voluma® XC are those who are experiencing loss of volume or a hollow appearance in the mid face or cheek regions. Patients who have a history of severe allergies, are allergic to lidocaine, or are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive Juvederm Voluma® XC injections.
What can I expect from Juvederm Voluma® XC?
After their treatment, patients should notice a balanced, more youthful facial appearance. Common side effects include mild tenderness, swelling, bruising and redness, though these should resolve within 24 hours. There is little to no downtime associated with Juvederm Voluma® XC, so you should be able to resume your everyday activities when you are comfortable. Touch ups are not needed for at least two years.
