We are very excited about Juvéderm Voluma™ XC injectable gel which is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It's different than Juvéderm® XC and works on a different area of the face. Juvéderm® XC smooths out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area. Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid, a normal majority component of your own skin.
What else should you know about Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities.
Side effects are mild to moderate and generally last no longer than two weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
