JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Aging typically produces loss of facial volume due to lower quantities of hyaluronic acid in the body. If you would like to get rid of the hollow look in your facial area, Voluma may be perfect for you. Voluma is a dermal filler that increases the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. At Ageless Innovations Medical Spa in Fredericksburg, VA, we recommend Voluma for patients who want to improve the look of their cheek area.
What is Voluma?
Juvederm Voluma helps to correct the loss of volume in the mid-face and cheeks. It restores youthful plumpness and lifts the skin to amend the visible effects of the aging process. Voluma is designed to smooth the skin and restore facial contours in adults over the age of 21. Treatment is virtually painless, as Voluma contains lidocaine, which aids to sooth any discomfort.
Benefits of Voluma
Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler that was developed specifically to add fullness to areas of the face that lack volume due to aging. It uses Vycross technology, a formula that allows the gel solution to pass through the skin and reshape the contours of the face.
Results last for up to two years, so patients can reduce the number of treatments required and can enjoy the youthful benefits without undergoing surgery.
Is Voluma Right for Me?
Good candidates for Juvederm Voluma:
- Are at least 21 years of age
- Have visible signs of aging
- Are in overall good health
- Have realistic expectations
How is Voluma Performed?
Juvederm Voluma is injected deep into the skin tissue, replenishing volume by linking itself to the water molecules in the skin, resembling collagen. This helps to fill in the space, making the area seem full. It also gives a small lift to the lower half of the face.
Typically, patients need only one treatment of Voluma to generate significant improvement in the appearance of their cheeks. Voluma results typically last between 18-24 months.
To enjoy the full benefits of your Voluma treatment, it is best to follow the below guidelines:
- Patients should avoid strenuous exercise
- Patients should avoid direct sunlight or strongly heated areas
- You may want to apply cold compresses to the area to reduce swelling and bruising.
- Patients may experience small bumps at the injection site, along with mild swelling, itching, pain, or redness. These symptoms typically disappear within 24 – 48 hours.
