Along with a number of other advanced JUVÉDERM® injectable options, we now offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC here at Pinsky Plastic Surgery. The benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC make this option unique in many ways. This treatment is the only hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat moderate to severe signs of wrinkles along the cheeks and mid-face. Working to smooth the skin of the mid-facial region, add volume, and essentially “lift” the cheeks, the results of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can last up to two years. This treatment can ultimately have a positive effect on your entire facial aesthetic and give you a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can help patients achieve their aesthetic enhancement goals in a number of ways. Benefits of this treatment can include:
- Added volume and a “lifting” effect to the cheeks
- A fuller, more contoured, and youthful appearance among the cheeks and the middle part of the face
- Results that are often immediately noticeable
- Effective cosmetic enhancement without invasive surgery
- Results that can last years – even longer with occasional “touch-up” treatments
How Does It Work?
The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment process is typically very quick, and can often be performed over a lunch hour. A very fine needle will be used to inject the solution, which contains a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Any swelling or redness around the injection sites should fade within a few days, and can often be alleviated with ice packs.
What About After My Injection?
Although there is typically no downtime necessary after this procedure, you should avoid any activities that will cause excessive strain for about 24 hours after the procedure. We also advise patients to avoid make-up, long periods in the sun, or alcohol consumption for at least one day after treatment.
