Juvederm Voluma XC is a smooth, injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the human body. Fully FDA-approved, it also contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine), and is created using VYCROSS technology to ensure long-lasting results. Here’s some further information about this innovative dermal filler.
What is Juvederm Voluma XC?
Hyaluronic acid is a form of sugar that naturally occurs within the body. As you age, your levels of hyaluronic acid start to deplete, which can result in skin with less elasticity and volume. Juvederm Voluma XC uses hyaluronic acid to restore plumpness to the face, also helping to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
How Does it Work?
Juvederm Voluma XC operates in an entirely different way than Botox, which focuses on freezing the muscles that cause mobile wrinkles such as laughter or frown lines. Instead it works in the dermal layers, restoring volume and smoothing out permanent wrinkles.
How is it Administered?
Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable filler; as a result, is delivered to the body via a fine needle. The filler contains a small amount of local anesthetic, which helps to reduce any discomfort that might be experienced. Additional anesthetic options are available and can be discussed with the experts at the Eyelid Institute.
Are there Risks Involved with Using Juvederm Voluma XC?
Any type of cosmetic treatment inevitably has some amount of risk. However, Juvederm Voluma XC is made using natural substances, which minimizes the risk of allergic reaction or rejection. Other minor risks include swelling and bruising, tenderness, redness, numbness or itching in the area. These symptoms are generally short-lasting.
How Long do the Results Last?
Unlike many other kinds of dermal filler, Juvederm Voluma XC offers long-lasting results. With optimal treatment, you can expect to experience visible results for up to two years after your treatment.
When will You Notice the Difference?
You will start to notice the results almost immediately after your treatment. It is important to note that this product is designed to produce natural results and, in many cases, will only minimize lines – not eliminate them entirely. However, the vast majority of patients report a noticeable improvement in their appearance afterward.
Are There Any People for Whom Juvederm XC isn’t Suitable?
Juvederm Voluma XC uses substances that occur naturally within the human body, so it’s considered suitable for most people. However, if you’d like to check whether or not it’s suitable for you before booking an appointment, simply call (813)971-3846 today.
