Juvederm Voluma XC

Conveniently located to serve Southbury, New Haven, and Waterbury

Juvederm Voluma XC is a minimally invasive injectable dermal filler used to correct gaunt and hollow cheeks, restoring youthful facial contours. As we age, our face’s underlying fat layer gradually loses tissue. This results in sagging skin and hollow areas. With the help of this specialized filler, volume can be restored to the skin.

What Is Juvederm Voluma XC?

Voluma is a safe and effective FDA-approved injectable dermal filler. Europe approved the product in the year 2005. Today, it is being used in more than 60 countries, and over 500,000 syringes of Voluma have been administered.

It is manufactured by Juvederm, a top company in the world of beauty-enhancing injectables. Juvederm has pioneered numerous skin-rejuvenating dermal fillers for wrinkle reduction, lip augmentation, and more. Voluma is a widely used injectable and is among the most popular fillers offered by Juvederm.

Voluma’s Composition

Voluma is a gel filler composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar produced naturally by our bodies. It bonds with water molecules in order to create volume, structure, and cushioning in the skin tissues.

As we age, our body’s supply of hyaluronic acid declines, causing signs of aging to appear. Voluma supplements the HA in the body. The filler contains cross-linked synthetic hyaluronic acid, which allows it to last for a long time in the body, leading to longer-lasting results.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Juvederm Voluma XC is made for all skin types and can be administered to patients above 21 years of age. Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, or 60s, Juvederm Voluma XC shows the same beneficial effects. The difference is the amount of filler that needs to be used. The younger the patient, the less filler required for treatment.

The best candidates for Voluma are interested in cheek volume restoration but do not want to go under the knife. While surgical procedures are long-lasting, they generally have a greater chance of complications than fillers, are more costly, and can result in weeks of downtime. Minimally invasive treatments involve no scalpels, incisions, or prolonged recovery time.

Additionally, ideal candidates for Voluma do not have active skin infections in the treatment areas, are in overall good health, and have realistic expectations.

The Treatment Process

A Juvederm Voluma XC treatment session lasts anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and is usually quite convenient. It begins with marking the targeted areas as a guide. After this, anesthesia is administered to the cheek areas in order to prevent any pain or discomfort. Once it has taken effect, Voluma is precisely injected into the treatment areas.

No recovery time or downtime is needed after a Voluma treatment, and patients can immediately return to their daily schedule. There may be slight swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites, but these issues are only temporary.

Voluma’s results can last for up to two years and in some cases even longer. In contrast, most other injectables last from three months up to a year. Once the results fade, patients can return for follow-up treatments.
