Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable filler created for the purpose of rejuvenating the face without surgery. When injected into the sub dermis of the cheeks and midface, the natural fat pads that seem to have vanished over time are replaced by the long-lasting product. Juvederm Voluma is able to deliver a natural-looking lift to the face because of the sculptable smooth gel, hyaluronic acid that has been crossed-linked with Vycross technology for optimal results.
Hyaluronic acid is vital in the hydration of the skin. It is naturally occurring in the human body, but begins to decrease with age. The fat pads that once gave the cheeks their youthful fullness and refined appearance lose volume. Juvederm Voluma compensates the loss of hyaluronic acid and fills out the sagging areas while rehydrating the skin.
The results of the treatment are visible immediately following the injection. There is no downtime associated with the procedure. Patients may return to work and their normal routines right away, but it is advised that more strenuous activities, such as exercise, be temporarily avoided for 24 hours. Results are expected to continue for up to 2 years.
Mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site are common side effects and generally fade within a few days.
