For patients looking to restore the fullness in their face for a more youthful look, dermal fillers can add that volume with immediate results. Juvederm Voluma XC is the only dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat volume loss in the midface caused by age.
What is Juvederm Voluma XC?
This injectable gel is made up of crosslinked hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. As the skin ages, it loses hyaluronic acid, which can lead to less volume and structure.
Juvederm Voluma XC is injected into the cheek area to add a subtle lift. Side effects of this minimally invasive procedure are generally moderate and last between two to four weeks. These side effects at the injection site may include:
Advantages of Choosing Juvederm Voluma XC
Although there are several different procedures to choose from when it comes to creating a more youthful profile, dermal fillers such as Juvederm Voluma XC provide a lot of the same benefits that a surgical facelift offers without the recovery time.
Dermal fillers also cost much less than surgery, but they will have to be maintained. Unlike other procedures that only last a few months, Juvederm Voluma XC is clinically proven to last as long as two years.
For a more permanent solution, many patients opt to change the shape of the face with cheek implants. This procedure can help to make the cheekbones more prominent and does not need to be maintained. The surgery can last anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours, and patients are able to return to work in about seven to ten days.
