Juvederm Voluma Xc in Naples, FL
As part of the aging process, the cheek area begins to lose volume over time, creating a hollow, sagging appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a long-lasting, hyaluronic acid gel filler that is used to lift and restore volume in the cheeks, providing a refreshed, youthful look. The skilled plastic surgeons at Aesthetic Surgery Center in Naples, FL, offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC for long-lasting rejuvenation without surgery.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC?
Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the human body, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is designed to fill and restore the cheek area. Volume loss can cause sagging and wrinkling that makes the face appear tired and aged. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can restore this volume during a brief injection session with a plastic surgeon.
The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment is minimally invasive and very safe. Results, which include subtle lifting of the cheeks, improved cheek contour, and restored volume, last for up to two years. It is one of the longest-lasting fillers on the market and naturally breaks down over time, making it exceptionally safe.
Because the treatment provides instant, natural-looking results, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a great choice for people with busy schedules who don’t want to undergo surgery. Touch-up treatments can be provided as needed to maintain results.
Where Can Voluma Injections Be Used?
There are many modern filler options on the market to choose from. Many of these formulas are designed to rejuvenate a specific area of the face, including JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC. Voluma was created to address deflation and volume loss in the cheeks. There are many other injectables that can be used for other areas of the face.
How JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Works
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that provides hydration and volume within the skin. Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin begins to drop, causing the skin to become drier and to lose volume with age.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is a thick hyaluronic acid gel that instantly adds natural-looking volume to the cheeks. Once injected into the cheeks, the gel is suspended in the area and provides subtle, but noticeable rejuvenation.
The body slowly breaks down the gel over the next year or two, until it has all dissolved harmlessly and the cheeks revert to their original appearance. To maintain the benefits of the filler, treatments are necessary every year or two.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC has become an extremely popular treatment for its effectiveness and convenience. Here are some of the most important benefits of the treatment:
- Effective cheek rejuvenation
- Improved facial contour
- Lifted appearance
- Minimal discomfort
Ideal Candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
Injectable fillers are ideal for people who are unable to undergo plastic surgery or simply want a non-invasive option for facial rejuvenation. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is FDA-approved and appropriate for healthy men and women over the age of 21 with age-related volume loss in the cheek area. Ideal candidates will have realistic expectations for the treatment.
Although hyaluronic acid fillers are extremely safe, they are not appropriate for everyone. Pregnant women will need to wait on the treatment as it has not been tested or approved for use during pregnancy. Those with an allergy to lidocaine should not get JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatments.
The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC Treatment
Very little preparation is needed before a JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment session. You may be asked to avoid some over-the-counter pain relievers in the week prior to treatment. It is best to avoid alcohol for a few days before and after your appointment.
Before the treatment begins, your skin will be cleaned to prevent infection. Your doctor will go over the procedure and make sure you are comfortable before beginning the injection process. You may request a topical numbing cream to increase your comfort, although the filler does contain lidocaine, a common local anesthetic.
During the treatment, the doctor will carefully inject JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC into your cheeks. It is a thick gel that will immediately restore volume to the area. You can see the results right away and notice a refreshed, youthful appearance.
Juvederm Voluma XC FAQs
Choosing the right injectable filler, such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, may play an essential role in the success of your procedure and how long your results last. Each type of injectable filler has its own treatment specialty, consistency, composition, and depth of penetration to address lines and folds.
A plastic surgeon at the Aesthetic Surgery Center will evaluate your specific needs and assess your face to determine the best filler option for you, which may be Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, or something else. For some patients, a combination of fillers will be used together to achieve optimal results in the different regions of your face.
The results of your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatment will be temporary but may last about one year or more in patients over the age of 21. The duration of your results will largely depend on the placement and use of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, as well as your body’s metabolism of the product.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC has been FDA-approved for cheek augmentation. It is made of hyaluronic acid derivative, which is a sugar molecule naturally present in human skin. It is completely biocompatible, making it an ideal and safe way to treat the skin.
Like any injectable treatment, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC typically causes some mild pain at the injection site. Many patients describe this sensation as similar to the pinch of a bug bite. The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC formula contains a small amount of lidocaine, which assists in numbing the treatment area and reducing the amount of discomfort you may experience.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC may cause the same general side effects as any injectable treatment, which can include slight bruising, swelling, and pain at the treatment site. These symptoms typically last only a few days and will gradually subside. During some treatments, your surgeon may use ice, a topical anesthetic cream, or a lidocaine nerve block to reduce your chances of developing these side effects.
Due to its thick gel formula, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is an ideal choice of filler to add volume to the cheek area. The effects are subtle but effective, alleviating the hollow or deflated look that may accompany aging. In addition to cheek augmentation, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can be used to treat the aging effects of hollowing at the temples.
Right away, most patients will begin to see the results of their JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injections. As your swelling subsides and the hyaluronic acid particles settle in the treatment area, your final results will begin to emerge.
There is no set age requirement to receive JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatments. Rather, your surgeon will look for the presence of lines, folds, and depressions, which can appear prematurely due to your genetics. Facial fillers like JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can help patients of most ages to reverse these effects, whether they are caused by aging or heredity.
Your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC treatments will only be administered by one of the Aesthetic Surgery Center’s plastic surgeons. Each surgeon on the team has the skills and training needed to provide patients with three-dimensional volumetric enhancement and satisfactory results.
