Juvéderm Voluma is the first FDA-approved filler to provide volume restoration in three steps, as well as the first filler to give you instant results. Juvéderm Voluma instantly fills volume-deficient areas of your face.
Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable gel that lifts the skin and increases the volume lost from the natural aging process. The injection site for Juvéderm Voluma XC is in the cheek area's deep dermis, whereas many other fillers go into the nasolabial folds.
A wrinkle filler is considerably cheaper than Juvéderm Voluma XC; however, it comes with several disadvantages. Wrinkle fillers come with a high risk of allergic reaction and small, permanent bumps under the skin. They can also cause the death of skin cells and skin discoloration.
If not appropriately administered, wrinkle fillers can cause blindness, scarring, stroke, and nerve paralysis in severe cases. Juvéderm Voluma XC is typically safer with fewer adverse side effects. Although both maximize skin volume, Juvéderm is more effective and FDA-approved.
Juvéderm Voluma XC lifts the skin and eliminates the need to simultaneously fill surrounding wrinkles, whereas wrinkle fillers solely eliminate wrinkles.
Juvéderm Voluma XC treats all skin types. However, people with a history of severe allergies, anaphylaxis, allergies to lidocaine, or gram-positive bacterial proteins are strongly advised not to use this product.
The results of Juvéderm Voluma can last up to two years.
Voluma XC is a fantastic alternative to plastic surgery, and results are noticeable immediately. Overall, it minimizes the effects of aging without compromising your appearance. Voluma XC is also long-lasting.
Voluma XC restores age-related volume loss of cheeks, cheekbones, and the chin after years of sun exposure and conditions that decrease collagen production in the skin. Its ability to provide fullness to the skin helps the cheeks and the chin appear younger.
Voluma XC also helps make the cheeks look rounder and provides a contoured effect to the cheek area.
Fortunately, Juvéderm Voluma treatments only last an average of fifteen to thirty minutes. Your healthcare professional will begin the treatment by cleaning and preparing the injection site. Then, they will administer the injection into the injection site.
Be sure to schedule a consultation with a healthcare professional to determine the right course of action, customized treatment plan, and to discuss specific pre and post-care steps.

You should also let your doctor know if you have a history of pigmentation disorders, scarring, receiving immunosuppressive therapy, using Asprin or other blood thinners, or are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. These conditions run a greater risk of adverse side effects or chances of infection.
Juvederm Voluma XC does stimulate collagen production in the skin. This is part of why this injection has long-lasting results, and patients eventually require fewer treatments over time.
Voluma contains a denser concentration of hyaluronic acid than Juvederm, which produces more pronounced volumizing effects and longer-lasting results.
