Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC
Wrinkles and lines are not the only signs of aging. The mid-face can lose facial fat and the structure it once had. This is referred to as “age-related mid-face volume loss” by the experts, and as natural as it is, it’s not something you have to live with. Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC can fill in that lost volume and give you back the stunning facial contours of your youth.
How Does Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC Work?
Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC was the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that was developed for the cheek area. All our Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC treatments are administered by our highly experienced specialist. After chatting with you to get a detailed understanding of the results you want, our specialist will use a fine needle to inject the filler into precise areas, molding the contours to get your dream results.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC gives instant results. Immediately after your treatment, you will notice plumper and fuller cheeks that will make you look and feel years younger. You may have some swelling and bruising after your treatment, but this will fade in a matter of days, leaving you with glowing results you can enjoy for up to a year.
Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC
Vollure is a temporary facial filler that uses Allergan’s patented Vycross™ Technology. It’s used for the treatment of volume loss, facial contouring of the face, and ‘static’ wrinkles in the nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm Vollure XC is FDA-approved to use the Vycross technology in the nasolabial folds, which also happens to be the number-one dermal treatment area.
How is Vollure different from Voluma?
Vollure maintains correction and also allows easy movement in the treated area with a molecule weight mix specific for this area. Voluma is weighted a little heavier than Vollure and is not quite as elastic in nature. Volume replacement in the cheek is not subject to the same repeated movements in the mouth area, so a filler that’s a little stiffer, like Voluma, works best for cheek augmentation. Filler densities are area-specific Generally, you can expect the denser fillers to be used in areas that require deeper levels of product injection and thinner fillers to be used in areas that are frequently mobile. Juvederm’s four formulas, Juvederm XC (lines and folds), Volbella (lips and lip lines), Vollure (mid face moderate to severe lines) and Voluma (cheeks) all are designed to give you the best results in the areas they have been developed for. Ex: A patient with deflated cheeks, deep lines around the mouth and loss of lip volume would likely use Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella. Are there side effects? Any filler treatment will cause some initial swelling, redness and possible bruising. Usually, any side effects subside in a matter of days. Juvederm Vollure contains lidocaine for injection comfort
Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC
Lip filler has become a common treatment for people of nearly any age because we all want full, soft lips. Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is a “thinner” filler designed for lip lines and for those who don’t want a whole lot of plumpness to their lips.
What to Expect from the Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC Treatment
Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is a precise treatment that needs to be administered by a trained specialist. The treatment is quick and convenient, usually lasting about 30-45 minutes.
After discussing your ideal results and answering any questions you have, our specialist will begin by cleaning your skin to prepare it for the injection. Based on your desired results, our specialist will swiftly inject the filler using a fine needle. Since Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC contains an anesthetic, you’ll have minimal discomfort during the procedure. The number of injections you receive will depend on your aesthetic goals because your treatment is carefully customized to fit your vision for the luscious lips of your dreams.
When do you get to see your results? Because of the way fillers work, you’ll be able to see partial results right away! You may have some swelling or bruising in the first days after your treatment, but when these heal, you’ll be able to enjoy your Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC results for longer than most fillers allow because of the advanced technology in this unique formula. Results can last up to a year compared to 6-9 months with many other fillers.
