What is Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, known simply as Voluma™, is a brand new injectable gel designed specifically for adding lift and volume to the cheeks.
It is the only hyaluronic acid filler for cheek enhancement approved by the FDA. It is soft and lightweight, making it excellent for adding very natural looking shape and volume to the entire cheek contour.
What can Voluma™ do for me?
Voluma™ can restore a more youthful contour to flat or sunken cheeks and add balance to your facial features. Do any of the following describe you?
- I’ve always wanted more defined, rounded cheeks, but I don’t want surgery.
- My cheeks look “drawn” and tired, and I’d like to change that.
- I don’t want dramatic cheek enhancement, just enough for a little lift.
If so, then we encourage you to contact us for a consultation with Dr. Zevon to discuss your options for Voluma™ treatments.
How long does it last?
Results can last up to 2 years, making Voluma™ an excellent option for cost-effective, non-surgical cheek enhancement.
When will I see results?
Results are instant, and noticeable immediately after treatment.
How is Voluma™ different from regular Juvéderm?
While both are made from the same natural, bio-compatible substance, hyaluronic acid (HA), the particles in Voluma™ are structured a little differently. This means it can be injected more deeply and provide a lifting effect—perfect for enhancing the cheeks.
Juvéderm XC is still an excellent option for smoothing wrinkles around the nose and mouth or plumping the lips.
Is Voluma™ safe?
Yes. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC received FDA approval in 2013, following in-depth clinical trials which proved it safe and effective. Just like Juvéderm XC, it is absorbed naturally and harmlessly by the body over time.
What do treatments feel like?
Just like Juvéderm XC, Voluma™ has a small amount of lidocaine built in to keep you comfortable during and immediately after treatment. Most patients describe a pinching feeling and pressure as the filler is added.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects are mild tenderness, swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site. These are temporary and typically resolve within 2 weeks or so.
