Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC is the latest injectable filler in the Juvederm line. Juvederm Voluma XC is the only hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that has been FDA approved for use in the middle face area. This product works very well as a filler in the cheek area, and it is also effective in the nasolabial folds (the wrinkles moving from the outer nose to the outer mouth.) Juvederm Voluma XC is unique among dermal fillers because the hyaluronic acid is cross-linked using Vycross technology. This specialized cross-linking process helps the product to stay intact for longer, which translates to a longer lifespan. Juvederm Voluma XC lasts for as much as 2 years.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvederm Voluma XC Treatment?
People who have volume loss in the middle face area due to the natural aging process may be good candidates for this type of treatment. Juvederm Voluma XC treatment is especially well suited to people who want to have a more youthful look without surgery.
The Benefits of Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC is a non-surgical treatment that can create very impressive results in the mid-face area. One of the most significant benefits of Juvederm Voluma XC treatment is the longevity of the product. While other hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers last for a year or less on average, many Juvederm Voluma XC patients enjoy up to 2 years of correction in the middle face area.
The Treatment Process
The Juvederm Voluma XC treatment generally lasts for only around half an hour. Before treatment begins, patients are numbed with a topical anesthetic in the middle face area. The injections are then performed while the patient lays or sits comfortably. After the treatment, ice may be applied to help minimize swelling. The treatment process is fast and easy. It can even be scheduled on a lunch hour if desired.
Juvederm Voluma XC Recovery
Patients can return to their job or other usual activities as soon as the treatment is complete. There may be some lingering numbness, swelling, and bruising, but these things will resolve rapidly over the next few days. Patients can use ice packs at home to help reduce swelling if needed.
Results: What to Expect
The results of Juvederm Voluma XC injections are immediate. Patients will see a change in volume before they leave the office. The face will be somewhat swollen immediately after treatment, but this will resolve quickly and the face will take on its new and improved appearance. The product can last for as much as 2 years, but patients are encouraged to schedule touch-ups at around the 1 year mark to ensure that the volume remains consistent.

Juvederm products, including Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus, are hyaluronic acid based fillers that can restore facial volume and create additional desired volume in areas like the nasolabial folds and the lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus has a slightly stiffer formulation, so it's commonly used in the nasolabial folds and in other areas where there are deeper facial folds or wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra is not as thick and is softer, so it's often used in soft areas like the lips. Most patients get a minimum of 4 to 6 months of correction from their first Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Ultra Plus treatment, and in some people the results last as much as a full year.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvederm Treatment?
People who want volume correction without surgery or invasive treatments may be excellent candidates for Juvederm treatment. Juvederm products can help restore a more youthful look, and they can also create plumper lips in people who were born with thin lips.
The Benefits of Juvederm
Juvederm treatment is a quick and easy way to greatly improve the appearance. It's far less costly than surgery and provides an immediate result with no downtime required.
The Treatment Process
Juvederm treatment generally takes just half an hour in most patients. A topical anesthetic will typically be applied before treatment begins to improve patient comfort, and the XC versions of Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus both have lidocaine anesthetic added as well. The product is precisely placed using a very fine needle, based on where the patient needs volume. Ice packs may be applied after the injections to minimize swelling.
Recovery: After Juvederm Treatment
Patients can go back to their usual routine as soon as the Juvederm treatment is complete. Some mild swelling, bruising, and redness may be present for a few days, and patients may feel numb for a few hours after the treatment. Ice packs can be applied at home to alleviate any swelling.
Results: What to Expect From Juvederm Treatment
Results are immediate, so patients will enjoy a visible volume increase before they leave the office. The product lasts for between 6 and 12 months on average. To enjoy the longest lasting results, patients should have a touch-up treatment before the Juvederm has totally dissipated.
