Natural, Beautiful Results with Juvéderm VOLUMA

Juvederm_VolumaXC logo 4cAs we age, many people focus on the fine lines and wrinkles that start appearing on the face. But did you know that sometimes the biggest culprit is volume loss in the mid-face? When your face begins to lose subcutaneous fat and your skin becomes more lax, your features can start to look sunken or hollow and creases and wrinkles around the nose and mouth are highlighted. For those who aren’t ready for, or wouldn’t benefit from, more invasive procedures like a facelift, Dr. Sobel often recommends Juvéderm® VOLUMA™ XC.

What is Juvéderm VOLUMA XC?

VOLUMA is the first and only filler with FDA approval to restore volume specifically to the cheeks. Further, boasting an indication for correction for up to 2 years, it is the longest-lasting HA filler with FDA approval. With an excellent safety profile and reversibility, this filler affords confidence for both patient and injector. This treatment has been available in Europe and 72 other countries worldwide since 2005.

VOLUMA is an injectable gel that adds volume and smoothness to your face and cheeks. This version is the latest filler in the Juvéderm product line, and is formulated with lidocaine for added comfort during treatment. In this form, with the added local anesthetic, it is branded as Juvéderm VOLUMA XC. Seattle area patients now have access to this advanced treatment option.

The Juvéderm Difference

The VOLUMA dermal filler creates a natural, younger-looking face without a surgical procedure. HA fillers are made of natural sugars that occur in the skin to restore the volume associated with youth. Juvéderm VOLUMA XC was created through a revolutionary process called Vycross, which provides much more effective cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid while using a lesser concentration of HA, thus affording great volume and lift with minimal swelling.

After Your Procedure

The procedure is non-invasive and will only take about 15-20 minutes of your time and results can be seen immediately after treatment. Patients benefit from the natural base of the HA which allows it to mold to the specific contours of your face. You should be able to resume your normal, daily routine in 24 hours. The side effects are mild to moderate, and generally last about 2 to 4 weeks. Those side effects can include some temporary reactions around the treatment area such as swelling, firmness, lumps, bruising, pain, redness, and itching.
