What is Juvéderm Voluma® XC?
Voluma® XC is not just about the lines and wrinkles any more. It targets age-related volume loss that can make your cheeks appear hollow and form sagging skin. With this FDA-approved formula of hyaluronic acid, Voluma® is the first injectable treatment that instantly corrects volume loss in the cheeks and provides a subtle lift and fullness to sagging skin.
Our Plastic Surgeon at our Kirkland, Washington office will listen to your concerns and decide on the best places for the injection. The entire process should only take about 30 minutes. During your brief, non-surgical treatment, Voluma® will be injected carefully in your specific areas to add instant natural volume. The formulation also includes lidocaine to provide optimum comfort during treatment.
Although results are immediate and can last up to two years, Voluma® is a temporary treatment and not a permanent solution to the aging process. Touch up treatments years later are recommended to retain your youthful and healthier appearance every time.
There is generally no downtime associated with Voluma®. Side effects can include temporary redness, swelling or bruising, which are moderate in severity and fade within a couple of days. If these side effects become bothersome, pain medication or applying an ice-pack to the injection site is recommended.
How Long Does Voluma Last?
Results from Juvederm Voluma have been shown to last in most patients for up to two years. At this point, patients can get repeat treatments to maintain their Voluma results.
Does Voluma Stimulate Collagen?
Yes, the water-based injectable gel stimulates collagen to help create natural volume, smooth out the skin, and lift certain areas of the face.
Will Voluma® Lift Jowls?
Voluma® can address sagging skin in the midface that contributes to hollow, sunken cheeks and the formation of jowls. Voluma adds volume and restores the lift in the skin to help improve the look of jowls and cheeks.
Are There Side Effects to Voluma®?
As with any cosmetic injectable, there are some side effects associated with Voluma. The most common are swelling, tenderness, bruising, and redness. Dr. Partington will go over all of the possible side effects with you at your consultation.
