Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA approved cosmetic filler to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face. It is an injectable volumizer that may help to add volume in the checks for a more youthful appearance.
Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar compound found in the skin. This breakthrough compound may provide a subtle lift that plumps, refreshes and rejuvenates. This may help to create a soft, natural look and feel that lifts the jowls and softens the jaw line, taking years off your appearance.
As we age and gravity takes its toll, in addition to developing lines and wrinkles, our cheeks flatten and the skin begins to sag due to decreased production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, which provide skin’s structure. Deep lines form on both sides of your nose and run down to the corners of the mouth or the jaw line. These are static wrinkles, visible when you are at rest. They are accentuated by sagging skin and volume loss.
Juvederm Voluma XC induces collagen production which may help firm and plump your skin over time. It also replenishes hyaluronic acid which may lead to rebuilding the skin’s supportive structures, potentially resulting in a radiant skin with a soft, natural feel. For your comfort, it is formulated with lidocaine.
Individual results may vary.
Voluma is injected deep under the skin in the cheek area, but is less painful to inject because there are fewer nerves and blood vessels. Injecting Voluma requires special training and appreciation of facial harmony and bone structure. So you want an experienced, skilled injector who has an artistic eye and can sculpt and recontour the areas injected like Dr. Bo Hanna at Cary Med Spa and Wellness in Cary, North Carolina.
After injection, Dr. Bo Hanna will massage the injected areas to distribute the product, to smooth bumps and lumps, and to recontour the cheek area creating smooth curves to the cheeks.
The procedure take 15-30 minutes, and the results may last up to 2 years. When it is time for a maintenance treatment, patients usually need less product to get the same results.
Side effects may include temporary tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps or bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration and itching. These should resolve within 2 weeks.
Juvenderm Voluma XC is safe and effective for all skin types and colors; and is for men and women. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use this product. Do not use if you have a history of multiple severe allergies, use blood thinners or have a bleeding disorder, or are allergic to lidocaine and gram positive bacterial proteins.
If you are tired of looking drawn with sunken cheeks and hollowed out temples, and deep wrinkles around you nose and mouth, Voluma XC may help to lift and sculpt the mid face and may reduce the signs of volume loss while rebuilding collagen. *individual results may vary.
