Do I Need Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
A deep-injection dermal filler from the makers of BOTOX®, Juvéderm™ VOLUMA® is used to volumize the cheeks instantaneously, restoring the appearance of youth. Because it’s an injectable, it’s minimally invasive, and no surgery will be required.
With the passing of time, many people’s faces lose volume. The cheeks become hollow, and it appears that the youth has been drained from them. Want more volume and shape to your cheeks? Try Juvéderm™ VOLUMA®, the convenient and effective solution used by more and more patients every day.
Juvéderm™ VOLUMA® is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a substance we all have in our skin tissues, and it adds support and structure to the skin. As time goes on, the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid gradually disappears.
These injections are a supplement the body’s hyaluronic acid, hydrating the skin tissues and restoring structure and shape. And because the hyaluronic acid is cross-linked, it will last longer and be more effective than other fillers. The gel is also smoother than other fillers, so it will look natural.
Deeper injections often come with some degree of discomfort. However, Juvéderm™ VOLUMA® contains Lidocaine, a local anesthetic. The Lidocaine is included to help reduce discomfort, making the procedure as easy as possible for you.
One day after getting Juvéderm™ VOLUMA® injections, you’ll be able to resume your normal schedule of activities. Temporary swelling and tenderness may occur; this can be lessened through the use of an ice pack. For two weeks following the injection procedure, protect the targeted area with sunscreen and avoid extreme heat.
The volumizing effects of Juvéderm™ VOLUMA® can remain for up to two years, adding smoothness and beauty to your skin. Touch-ups are available by request.
Dr. David Abramson can explain the procedure in greater detail during a consultation. For more information, create an appointment today.
What is Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC replenishes lost skin volume and helps you regain a youthful appearance and enhance the shape and healthy glow of your face. It is an injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) that adds volume to your face, mainly the cheeks and chin. Wrinkle fillers work well with fine lines and wrinkles, but Voluma™ is well suited for large scale facial volumizing. It is smoother than many other injectable fillers, making it easier to inject and resulting in a rounder and softer face.
