What is Voluma XC?
Voluma XC is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel dermal filler that is used to restore lost volume to the face and rejuvenate the appearance of the mid-face. Voluma XC is injected into areas of the face where moderate to severe volume loss has occurred.
Voluma XC is known to smooth and lift areas of the face that have a loss of elasticity and volume, such as the cheeks. Voluma XC is sometimes known for its “liquid lift” qualities.
The gel provides instant volume to the area being treated. It keeps the skin hydrated and plump by helping the skin tissue retain water. Over time, the gel is safely absorbed by the body.
Voluma XC is designed for maximum patient comfort. Its the formula contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that numbs the treatment area to minimize any pain or discomfort caused by the injections.
Why use Voluma XC?
Voluma XC has been a popular dermal filler to smooth and lift areas of the face where severe volume loss has occurred, like the mid-face and the jawline and chin area. The appearance of the cheeks is heavily dependent on the amount of volume present. Fuller cheeks give the face a more youthful shape and appearance.
As the years go by, the face slowly loses volume as a natural result of aging. When this occurs in the mid-face, it can result in the appearance of flat saggy cheeks or may give the cheeks a more hollowed appearance; this can make the face appear gaunt.
How long does Voluma XC last?
Voluma XC can last up to 24 months depending on where it is injected. The longevity of Juvederm will vary from patient to patient. Once results begin to fade, additional injections can be performed to extend the results provided.
What to expect during your injection appointment?
Patients should expect to have a topical anesthetic applied to the areas that will be injected. The topical anesthetic cream takes roughly 30 minutes to take effect. You can experience mild discomfort. Voluma XC does have lidocaine in the gel to assist in ensuring the patient is as comfortable as possible.
What should you expect after being injected?
Patients can immediately return to their daily schedule after Voluma XC injections. Temporary mild tenderness, redness, swelling, and bruising can occur around the injection site. Any side effects should last no more than 7 days from the date you were injected. We do require all patients who were injected to return in 7 – 10 days for a follow-up.
