Juvéderm Voluma XC was given official FDA approval for use in adding volume to the cheeks as a temporary solution to the signs of aging. ELAN Skin is excited to offer this injectable along with the line of dermal fillers and Botox Cosmetic currently available through our practice.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only filler approved to instantly add volume to flattened cheeks that have lost their volume due to the signs of time. It can be injected into three areas of the cheek, including the apex, the apple, and the hollow. Volume loss in the cheeks can occur due to the loss of collagen, which naturally keeps the face youthful in appearance. After receiving Voluma XC from a qualified professional, you may see restored contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years.
Voluma XC uses Vycross technology, which allows patients to experience a subtle lifting effect after injection. In addition, this particular injectable is mixed with lidocaine to ensure a comfortable treatment. The result? Smooth, even cheeks that are beautiful and youthful. Voluma XC is used specifically for the cheeks, and can be combined with other dermal fillers and even Botox Cosmetic.
Injections of Voluma XC are fast and simple. This hyaluronic acid filler is injected precisely into the area of concern after an initial consultation with one of our talented nurses. Some patients elect to do during their lunch hour and return back to their busy lifestyle without any interruption. Keep in mind there is potential for minor swelling and bruising after your Voluma XC so make sure to have some cosmetics with you if you plan to return to work.
Our skilled nurses encourage patients to contact our practice to learn more about this new injectable. Voluma XC can be used in conjunction with other dermal fillers and injectables such as Botox Cosmetic for a complete "liquid face lift." We believe it is important for everyone to feel and look their best, and injectables are just one of the easy and affordable methods of improving one’s appearance.
