JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC (VOLUMA)
The first thing people notice about you is your face. If your skin sags and looks worn-out, other people perceive you as tired. JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can make you appear more youthful and energetic.
What it is?
VOLUMA is an injectable filler, similar to Botox, that fills in fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, JUVÉDERM Voluma XC was created by Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox. VOLUMA is used on apex, hollow, and apple of cheeks to improve the appearance of loose skin. VOLUMA cannot be used on any other area of the body, including other facial areas.
VOLUMA works by supplementing levels of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally found in the human body. As aging occurs levels of hyaluronic acid decline. Supplementing HA levels with VOLUMA enhances the skins ability to retain moisture. VOLUMA fills in sunken cheeks and helps to combat skin dehydration which can lead to loose and wrinkled skin.
How long does it last?
VOLUMA's noticeable skin enhancement can last up to two years.
Who qualifies for the procedure?
VOLUMA can be used by both men and women. VOLUMA is also race natural and has no ethnicity specific side-effects on skin pigmentation.
How long does the procedure take?
Our trained and certified plastic surgeon skillfully treats wrinkled areas in less than thirty minutes. De Ramon Plastic Surgery Institute recommends that patients couple VOLUMA treatment with other skin enhancing procedures like Botox injections. The most dramatic results are seen on patients with Botox and VOLUMA procedures because these fillers target different facial areas and types of wrinkles. Together Botox and VOLUMA can enhance the entire face and target various types of wrinkles to provide a complete facial rejuvenation.
Is there pain associated with treatment? What are the side effects?
Treatment is performed by injecting VOLUMA into sunken cheek areas. This process may cause slight discomfort. In order to make the process as painless as possible, VOLUMA contains a local anesthetic. After the procedure, some patients may experience mild bruising, tenderness, redness, firmness, swelling, bumps, and lumps. Patients who do experience side effects can expect to be back to normal in about a week.
VOLUMA requires no down time. Unlike other more invasive treatments that require days and weeks of down time, VOLUMA patients can expect to return to normal functions right after treatment. However, some actions should be avoided for 24 hours including exposure to direct sunlight and heat, preforming exercise, and consuming alcohol.
