What is Juvéderm™ Voluma XC?

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.

Juvéderm Voluma XC Vs. Wrinkle Filler?

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.

Restore Volume Loss of Cheeks, Cheek Bones, Chin

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.

What is the Pre and Post Care?

One should avoid using NSAIDs and blood thinners a week before treatment to prevent excessive bruising and bleeding post-treatment for pre-treatment care. You also refrain from drinking alcohol two days before treatment. 

After treatment, you can typically return to normal activities right away. If you experience swelling and redness, apply an ice pack for fifteen to twenty minutes. However, it would be best if you avoided the following:

  • Use of skin care products and makeup in and around the injection site twelve to twenty-four hours post-treatment
  • Extreme heat or cold up to two days after treatment
  • Strenuous exercise two days after receiving injections
  • Dental procedures until it's been two weeks since treatment
