As we get older, our facial features can begin to appear sunken and hollow, creating an older appearance than we desire. Injectable fillers, such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, are designed to increase the volume of targeted areas and smooth the skin to provide youthful facial contours without the need for an invasive procedure.
Patients with facial wrinkles, folds, and sunken features in the midface can benefit from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. This injectable contains a small amount of lidocaine, so this treatment should be avoided if you are allergic to it. Other injectables are available that do not include lidocaine, so discuss any concerns or allergies during your consultation to ensure a comfortable experience.
This injectable uses VYCROSS™ technology for the smooth, minimally painful, non-surgical application of hyaluronic acid. When applied to the deeper tissues of the midface, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can replenish lost volume while also smoothing the skin. By combining collagen and elastin with lidocaine, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC rejuvenates the skin and fills out the cheeks and chin for subtle, natural results.
Treatment is administered in-office and is virtually painless. A topical numbing agent or ice can help reduce any discomfort during application. Minor swelling may occur, but this can be alleviated with cold compresses. Swelling usually dissipates within two weeks. Strenuous exercise or heat exposure should be avoided for 24 hours after treatment.
Results include plumped cheeks, smoother skin, and a more defined chin. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC results may last for up to two years, which is longer than other fillers. As your results begin to fade, you may choose to undergo additional treatments to replenish your youthful appearance.
