JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC
JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC injectable gel is the latest, longest-lasting injectable facial filler that is FDA-approved to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. We know that one of the hallmarks of youth is a fuller face, with plumped cheeks that make the cheekbones appear higher. The early sign of aging results in sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines, over time. Loss of volume makes the cheeks appear hollow, as well, which is a sign of more advanced aging. Voluma Filler successfully restores the fullness of the cheeks, which can in turn smooth out and lift the skin on the face. While patients have their choice among injectable fillers, Voluma is the first and only FDA-approved filler that instantly adds volume to the cheeks in adults over the age of 21.
What makes Voluma filler different? While most other injectable facial fillers are approved for treating the “smile lines” (medically known as the nasolabial folds), Voluma gel is approved for injection into the cheek area, specifically. Voluma is different, too, because the gel contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs pain. Unlike a facelift where patients undergo invasive surgery, the procedure where Voluma is injected is quick, simple, and straightforward. Most patients take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. What’s more, Voluma filler provides more than a subtle lift that helps patient’s look up to five years younger, all without surgery; its effects also last for up to two (2) years.
What are the side effects of Voluma? All injectable facial fillers have risks, and Voluma is no different. Side effects observed from Voluma include mild or moderate tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching that lasts up to a week.
