Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only injectable filler approved in the United States to treat volume loss in the cheek area due to aging. FDA-approved Voluma XC provides patients with a non-surgical option for cheek augmentation. Aging is inevitable, and with that comes volume loss in the cheeks and around the eyes. Fillers are safe and effective ways to replace lost volume and give patients a less-wrinkled, fuller appearance.
Juvederm Voluma XC is a viscous gel made of hyaluronic acid and suspends in a saline solution. This type of dermal filler is the first and only option to treat deep injections in the midface and results can typically be maintained for up to two years. Voluma XC contains lidocaine to numb the tissues while double board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rokhsar injects it.
Having well-defined cheeks has always been considered a more youthful and attractive appearance. Fullness to the mid-facial region lifts the lower region can also give your face the balance it needs to provide an overall enhanced appearance. Voluma is a popular choice among Dr. Rokhsar’s patients who wish to make their jawline smoother.
Dr. Rokhsar is a certified trainer for physicians and a speaker for Allergan Medical Institute.
Non-surgical cheek augmentation is a new treatment that is sometimes described as a cheek implant in a syringe. For most patients, it can provide cheek sculpting without the downtime and healing of surgery. Most patients who look for non-surgical cheek enhancement are divided into two groups.
If you have poorly defined or flat cheekbones, you may want to achieve more refined and sculpted cheekbones with the use of this non-surgical approach, which is an especially good choice for those that are unsure about surgery or permanent solutions. This procedure is painless and can add contour and volume to your face with high cheekbones that are traditionally associated with the balance and beauty of the face.
With age or as a result of weight loss, women and men lose volume around the cheek area. Voluma XC provides an instant solution to regain that volume. High cheekbones support and uplift the skin and muscles of the face, which assist in the prevention of a prematurely aged appearance along with a rejuvenated, more youthful, and less tired look to the face.
With proper injection technique, results can last up to 6 months. Dr. Rokhsar will explain more during your consultation.
Side effects are moderate and may last anywhere from two to four weeks, with the most common side effects including tenderness, swelling firmness, lumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
Dr. Rokhsar is an expert injector of fillers and Botox injectables such as Radiesse, Restylane, Sculptra, Xeomin, and many more. Dr. Rokhsar is known for his expertise and experience in non-surgical cosmetic treatments, which will allow him precision and patience while injecting Juvederm Voluma XC.
* Results May Vary
Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved dermal filler injection that adds volume around the cheeks and restores fullness in that area of the face, resulting in a more youthful look. Some of the most common areas for Juvederm Voluma injection include the mid-face, cheeks, temples, chin, and jawline. Juvederm Voluma is particularly useful for treating sunken cheeks and adding volume to the upper arch of the cheekbone. During the procedure, Dr. Rokhsar will administer multiple small doses of the gel implant (dermal filler) into the specific areas of facial tissue. It consists of crosslinked hyaluronic acid (HA) a naturally occurring substance in our skin and our joints.
The longevity of Juvederm Voluma can vary based on multiple factors, including the amount of filler injected, the depth of injection, the patient’s metabolism, and the quality of their skin. The consensus from most board-certified dermatologists is that Juvederm Voluma can last between 12 to 24 months, with some studies claiming that it can even last up to two years in certain cases. The duration of results may vary depending on the individual patient and the injector’s technique. The FDA has allowed Allergan, the makers of Voluma, to claim in their online and print marketing materials that Voluma lasts up to 2 years.
The exact cost of Juvederm Voluma varies based on several factors, such as the number of syringes used, the injector’s level of experience, the geographical location of the practice, and any additional treatments done in combination with the filler.
While the cost of Juvederm Voluma may seem high compared to other fillers, it provides longer-lasting results, lasting up to two years. Additionally, the thicker viscosity of the product allows it to create more dramatic lifting and volumizing effects than other dermal fillers.
Voluma takes approximately two weeks to fully settle after injection, although this can vary from patient to patient. During this time, you may experience some swelling and bruising, but these can even subside within a day or two in some patients.
After Voluma injections, you can expect some swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site, which is normal and typically subsides within a few days. But Most people have minimal swelling and almost no bruising. You may also experience some tenderness, firmness, lumps or bumps, or minor pain. If you have any severe allergies or a history of severe allergic reactions, Voluma may not be the right choice for you. It’s important to avoid itching, massaging, or picking around the injection site to avoid any complications. Arnica or Bromelain supplements may help minimize any bruising and swelling after treatment. If you experience any persistent or severe side effects after Voluma injections, such as excessive swelling, discomfort, or asymmetry, it’s important to contact your board-certified dermatologists. If for whatever reason you don’t like your Voluma injections, it can dissolve with the help of an enzyme named Vitrase. More than one injection session may be necessary to fully dissolve Voluma with Vitrase injections.
