Juvéderm Voluma® XC
As one of the most effective injectables, in the Juvéderm family of fillers, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, uses a hyaluronic acid base, in order to add much-needed volume to the mid-face/cheek region – especially when these issues come as a byproduct of premature aging. Many patients have also found success using it to treat wrinkles along the temples as well as the lower regions of the cheeks known as the hollows.
How It Works
Adding volume to the mid-face/cheek area can provide patients with a very pleasing overall facial aesthetic. Contouring the cheeks, helps to bring out the overall shape of the face, making it far more aesthetically-pleasing and far more natural, while reducing the unnatural, somewhat rectangular appearance that can appear. Also, another interesting benefit of injections performed at the mid-face can often fill the skin envelope, softening the nasolabial folds, without the need of additional injections.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC Indications
Juvéderm Voluma® is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical option to instantly correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in patients 21 and older. Juvéderm Voluma® has been used in Europe since 2005 and approved in over 60 countries with over 500,000 syringes used.
What is Juvederm Voluma® XC Used For?
As we previously mentioned, Juvéderm Voluma® XC is typically used for restoring cheek or mid face volume loss and also to help restore a more youthful curve and position to the higher area of cheekbones in mostly women (not as much for men, as they tend to require stronger more pronounced angles.
Across the United States, as well as much of Europe and Canada, Juvéderm Voluma® has been widely and very successfully used for off label FDA uses for lifting, volumizing and recontouring the face and jawline. Injection using little blunt microcannulas in addition to traditional small needles is also widely used for helping create a natural look while minimizing discomfort and bruising.
One of the major differences between Volume XC and the vast majority of injectable dermal fillers out there, is the higher, more advanced Vycross technology by Allergan. This amazing tech ensures that patients are able to achieve far smoother, more consistent, more easily sculpted facial features. This special cross-linking technology not only produces the lift and fill that is unique to Voluma®, but it also contributes to its long-lasting nature – with most patients able to achieve results that last upwards of one to two years at a time!
