Juvederm Voluma XC- Instant Volume for the Entire Face
Volume and the Aging Face
Voluma-XCOne component of the aging process that contributes to facial concerns is loss of volume throughout the entire face. Deep folds (smile lines), wrinkles, and sunken eyes are typical concerns of most clients, but the cause of these problems usually have some degree of facial volume loss. By conservatively and strategically replacing lost volume in the middle, upper and lower face, we can correct or improve many folds and shadows caused by volume loss. When done right by trained clinicians, volume replacement can take years off of an aging face and change the way light reflects off of the face, yielding a more rested, youthful and natural result.
About JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is indicated for deep (subcutaneous and/or supraperiosteal) injection for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume deficit in the mid-face in adults over the age of 21. The first and only FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the midface, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC offers natural-looking results last up to 2 years (with optimal correction). As you age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape. The cheeks flatten out and the skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is designed to temporarily reverse these signs of aging. The gel is injected into the cheek area to lift the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheek area and results in a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.
What Is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is a smooth, colorless hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that contains a small quantity of localanesthetic (lidocaine). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of HA in the skin is to deliver nutrients and help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. The addition of lidocaine helps to improve the comfort of the injection. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is manufactured using VYCROSS™ technology to give a specialized smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results at the treatment site. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is delivered by an injection into the cheek and surrounding area of the mid-face to correct volume and fullness.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC CONTRAINDICATIONS
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is contraindicated for patients with severe allergies, manifested by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies, and a history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is not intended for delicate areas that need minimal volume, such as the tear troughs (under the eyes) or in the lips.
SIDE EFFECTS/ DOWNTIME
The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. These side effects are consistent with other facial-injection procedures. Bruising and swelling are very common with any facial injections, so avoiding blood-thinning medications such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen are recommended one week prior to the treatment. Make up can be worn immediately after treatment to minimize the visibility of the redness and bruising associated with facial injections. Most clients who undergo this procedure are able to return to work immediately.
