Juvederm Voluma XC

Juvederm Voluma XC is the latest addition to the Juvederm line of dermal fillers. Approved by the FDA in December 2013, Voluma XC is designed to correct mid-face volume loss (cheeks).

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and collagen production slows down, resulting in a loss of volume in the cheeks. This can cause the skin to sag and wrinkles to form. Voluma XC is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. When injected into the skin, it replenishes lost volume and gives the face a more youthful appearance. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at Juvederm Voluma XC and how it can help you achieve a more youthful appearance.

What is Juvederm Voluma XC?

As we age, it’s not just about wrinkles. Our skin loses volume and shape, which can make us look tired or sad. But there’s a new injectable filler that can help with that: Juvederm Voluma XC.

Voluma is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can give you a subtle lift, helping you to look like the best version of yourself.

Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in your skin. This makes it very safe and easy to tolerate. There’s no need for allergy testing before treatment.

The results are immediate and can last up to 2 years with optimal treatment. And there’s minimal downtime—you may have some swelling and bruising for a few days after injection, but you can resume your normal activities right away.

How is Juvederm Voluma XC Treatment Performed?

Juvederm Voluma XC filler is injected into the cheek area. The gel will help to add volume to the cheeks and make them look fuller. The treatment is done in a doctor’s office or clinic and takes about 15 minutes. There is no downtime after the treatment, and you can see results immediately.

How Does Juvederm Voluma XC Work?

As we age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. We lose volume in our faces, which can make us look older and more tired. Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable filler that helps to restore lost volume in the face for a youthful appearance.

How does Juvederm Voluma XC work?

The active ingredient in Juvederm Voluma XC is hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, leading to volume loss in the face.

Juvederm Voluma XC is injected into the areas of the face where volume loss has occurred. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm Voluma XC attracts water to the injection site, providing immediate volume and lift. Over time, Juvederm Voluma XC continues to work by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production for long-lasting results.

What should I know before my appointment?

Voluma has been specifically designed for use in the cheek area and can help to lift and add volume to this area of the face. Before your Voluma filler injection, it’s essential to know a few things. First, Voluma should only be injected by a trained and experienced professional. Second, while Voluma is considered safe, there are minimal side effects, but we should still be aware of them. These include bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site. These side effects are typically temporary and should resolve within a few days.

What are the Pre-treatment Care Instructions for Juvederm Voluma XC?

Considering Juvederm Voluma XC for your facial rejuvenation needs, it is vital to be aware of the pre-treatment care instructions. By following these simple steps, you can help ensure that your treatment goes smoothly and that you obtain optimal results. First, it is important to cleanse your face thoroughly before your treatment. This will help remove any dirt, oil, or makeup that could interfere with the injectable process. Be sure to use a gentle cleanser and avoid harsh scrubs or other irritants. Next, you will need to provide the injector with a list of all medications that you are currently taking.

This includes prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and supplements. Certain medications can increase bleeding or bruising at the injection site. The injector will need to know if you are taking any of these so that they can take appropriate precautions. It is also important to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before your treatment. Alcohol can thin the blood and increase bleeding and bruising at the injection site. If you must drink alcohol, do so in moderation and stop at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. Finally, refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen or aspirin for at least one week before your treatment. These medications can also increase bleeding and bruising. If you must take them for medical reasons, be sure to let the injector know in advance.

What are the Post Treatment Care Instructions for Juvederm Voluma XC?

If you have just received Juvederm Voluma XC, it is important to follow the post-treatment care instructions to ensure the best possible results. For the first 24 hours after your treatment, avoid strenuous activity, excessive sun or heat exposure, drinking alcohol, and consuming hot beverages. It is also important to sleep with your head elevated during this time.

After the first 24 hours, you can resume your normal activities but should still avoid excessive sun or heat exposure. You should also avoid touching or rubbing the treated area, as this could cause the filler to move around. If you experience discomfort, you can take over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen.

You may see some bruising and swelling in the treated area, which is normal and will typically resolve within a week. In rare cases, there may be some asymmetry or lumpiness immediately after treatment which will improve with the massage. If you have any concerns about your appearance, don’t hesitate to contact us at Pommier Med Spa.
