Juvederm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler that’s designed to subtly add volume to the cheek region. As we get older, collagen and elastin levels drop, which can cause significant skin sagging. Facial fat also breaks down, which can create hollow-looking cheeks. Juvederm Voluma XC addresses this fat loss by augmenting the cheek; this augmentation works to smooth out wrinkles and creases.
How It Works
Juvederm Voluma XC contains a special hyaluronic acid gel that’s thicker than other dermal fillers, as it takes more gel to augment the cheek. “XC” means that this cheek augmentation injection contains lidocaine, which helps mitigate any discomfort associated with the treatment. Juvederm Voluma XC is injected into the cheek to create almost-instant volume, which addresses deep creases and wrinkles that may have formed as a result of age-related volume loss.
Area It Treats
Juvederm Voluma XC is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation.
Most patients will see results from their Juvederm Voluma XC almost immediately; however, final results will settle into place after swelling has faded, which usually takes a couple of weeks. Patients should expect minor swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection site. Results can last for up to two years, making it one of the longest-lasting cheek augmentation fillers available.
