What is Juvéderm Voluma XC?

Juvéderm Voluma XC is one of the latest injectable fillers to hit the market. It is the first and only FDA approved injectable gel that adds volume to the cheeks and helps correct age-related volume loss. The filler is used to contour and lift areas of the face in order to give a more aesthetic appearance. The injectable filler, which is placed directly into the skin to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles, is a non-surgical procedure that lasts for about 2 years.

The most common sites for Juvéderm Voluma XC are around the nose and mouth to decrease the appearance of frown and smile lines. The procedure requires an initial office visit in order to meet with an experienced physician, such as those at Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery. Unlike cosmetic surgery, placing the filler is quick and takes less than an hour.

Side Effects of Juvéderm Voluma XC

The side effects of Juvéderm Voluma XC are minimal and do not last longer than 2-4 weeks. While side effects are not common, possible outcomes include temporary:

  • Redness or temporary discoloration
  • Pain/tenderness around injection site
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Itching

The benefits of Juvéderm Voluma XC far exceed the possible side effects. After the treatment, results are instantaneous and will become most apparent after a month. Our patients report a high success rate of happiness and increased confidence after receiving the treatment.
