JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC
As people age, their face can lose volume and appear sunken. This sagging appearance can look unhealthy and cause people to feel uncomfortable with the shape of their face. The change in one’s face typically occurs due to aging, genetics, or a physical condition. Luckily for everyone, modern cosmetic procedures have come a long way. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved injectable gel that is designed to add volume to the cheeks and enhance the facial structure. The injectable gel can help people look much younger and feel positive about their appearance.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be useful for nearly anyone who is in good medical condition. Most clients who have found success with the treatment have the following in common:
- They desire to have a fuller, smoother, and more youthful looking face.
- Clients want to reduce parenthesis-like lines or wrinkles around the mouth.
- They have realistic expectations for potential results.
- They have experienced natural, age-related mid face volume loss.
- Patients are free from sunburns or irritated skin at the time of the treatment.
- They do not have a history of hypertrophic scarring, keloid formations, skin disease, or immunosuppressive therapy.
- Successful candidates are over 21 years of age.
The application of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections is reasonably straightforward. Clients will typically have the treatment administered in a simple doctor’s office or medspa setting such as Hochstein Medspa. The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC formula includes hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose hyaluronic acid, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. Hyaluronic acid is injected deep into the cheeks, which instantly increases volume and creates a subtle lifting effect. Several injections are often needed to gain the maximum benefit.
The recovery period for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is often short. Patients should be able to return to normal activities and resume work within 24 hours of receiving the injections. Moderate side effects can persist for up to two weeks. They include soreness, swelling, firm spots, lumps, bruising, pain, redness, itching, and mild discomfort. Any side effects should dissipate within a maximum of four weeks. Those who elect to use JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC should be vigilant in reporting any severe and lasting side effects like intense pain to their physician or cosmetic specialist.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC often produces subtle results that are quite flattering. There is usually a marked increase in facial volume. The addition of volume in critical areas such as the cheeks helps to smooth any lines, wrinkles, or folds near the mouth. The treatment can help with moderate to severe imperfections and usually lasts up to two years. Follow-up injections are recommended for aesthetic maintenance. The best outcomes often depend on the proper application of the product by a skilled medspa practitioner. Therefore, those considering JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC should seek out a qualified professional for their treatment. Results can vary among individual patients. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an amazing option for aesthetic improvement that offers a return to the plump, vital beauty of younger years.
