Juvẻderm® VOLUMA XC

The first and only FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume
 loss in the midface. 
 JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It's different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

What's different about VOLUMA XC?


While other dermal fillers are used primarily to fill in lines and plump only surface areas like the lips, Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only product that was specifically developed to add volume underneath the skin. Because it is used subdermally, Juvéderm Voluma XC plumps from below, adding firmness and fullness back to the cheeks, chin and jaw.

A cousin of Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus XC, the Voluma product was created with different technology that allows it to actually lift and volumize skin while also lasting longer than other injectable products.

Although Voluma is different from other dermal fillers, it was not intended to replace them. Voluma has a job separate from other products like Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus XC. While Voluma volumizes and plumps, Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus XC fill lines and wrinkles. Used together the two types of dermal products create a dramatic difference.

Who would benefit from VOLUMA XC?


Juvéderm Voluma XC is an ideal solution to facial volume loss. Hollowness, drooping and sagging caused by age or weight loss as well as facial asymmetry can all be corrected with a Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment.

Does VOLUMA XC hurt?


During treatment, patients will feel an initial prick, but Juvéderm Voluma XC contains a small amount of lidocaine, which should diminish discomfort. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the injection area before treatment begins to offer additional relief.

What is the downtime with VOLUMA XC?


There is little to no downtime with a Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment, and you can resume normal activity immediately. It’s best to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol and sun exposure for 24 hours after treatment. You may experience tenderness, swelling, lumps or bumps, bruising, redness or itching at the site of injection, but all symptoms are mild to moderate and will usually clear up within one to four weeks.

How long will VOLUMA XC last?


Results from a Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment are immediate, and typically only one treatment is needed for optimal results. Clinical studies have shown Juvéderm Voluma XC to last as long as two years before maintenance was needed, however, you can probably expect it to last between 12 and 18 months.
