JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to add volume to the cheek area. It provides a subtle cheek lift, helping to restore volume, improve contour and add a more youthful profile. It's different than other hyaluronic acid fillers as it is designed to replace lost volume and lift the cheeks where other HA fillers smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
The results of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment last 18-24 months. The effects diminish gradually as your body absorbs the natural hyaluronic acid. The unique purpose of this filler is to revolumize the midface and achieve a cheek lift in those patients who have had significant weight loss, those with athletic builds and facial volume loss associated with aging. The advantage of this and other more temporary HA fillers is that you can have touch ups or re-treatment at any time.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is not an animal-based filler, so you will not need test injection prior to your procedure.
As with other injectable fillers, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injections take about 15 minutes.
