As we age, the amount of fat in our face that contributes to a youthful appearance of volume begins to dissipate. This natural occurrence can lead to sunken areas on the face, or sagging deflated-looking skin that makes us appear older than we are. Voluma XC replaces that lost facial volume. Juvederm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the mid-face/cheek area. It provides a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face that lasts up to two years.
“From my first consult I felt completely at ease with Dr. Prysi and his staff! They are all extremely considerate, knowledgeable, and truly caring about your concerns and well being. I had heard for years that Dr. Prysi was the best and I have to say he did not disappoint! ”
“Felt very comfortable with Dr. Prysi & staff. They were very thorough and left me feeling confident with my decision.”
“Dr. Prysi is truly a master of his craft. His skill is simply amazing. You will not find a better plastic surgeon. I am six months post op and the incisions are nearly invisible. I had no complications and I look and feel fantastic! He listens and addresses all my concerns/questions. He is attentive, friendly and pleasant. His staff is friendly, knowledgeable and a pleasure to see every visit. I feel so fortunate to have find such a skilled Surgeon and staff. ”
“Dr. Prysi performed extensive work on me ten years ago. The results were remarkable and long-lasting to the extent that I did not even consider going to anyone else all these years later.”
Juvéderm Voluma XC consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the skin that attracts moisture to itself, contributing to supple, plump skin. Voluma XC is injected into the deep layers of the skin to offer greater support and structure and instantly lift the overlying skin. Injecting Voluma XC into these deep layers can create a noticeably smoother appearance to the skin; it provides volume and definition to the facial structure.
Whether you have experienced volume loss in your cheekbones or the under-eye area, or if you want to have facial contours and definition you never had before, Voluma XC can provide a solution!
Voluma XC is safe, affordable, and non-invasive. It is intended for a wide range of clients looking to achieve better mid-face volume, or more prominent, sculpted cheekbones. The specific formula that will be right to add subtle volume to the areas of your face you’re concerned about might not be Voluma XC, but rather another Juvederm formula or another procedure entirely. This is why we will go through an initial consultation before deciding on the right treatment for your specific concerns.
Administering the injections typically takes about 15-30 minutes. Once complete, results can be seen immediately. Unlike surgical options for cheek contour enhancement, Voluma XC has no downtime, which means patients are free to resume their normal routine the moment they walk out of the office.
The most common side effects are mild and include symptoms commonly found in the recovery process of any cosmetic treatment plan, such as irritation, swelling, or redness at the injection site. Another benefit of dermal fillers is that every treatment process is reversible, so in the case of a severe reaction or sub-optimal treatment, we can simply inject an enzyme that inactivates the formula.
How long does it take for Voluma to settle?
Like most fillers, Juvéderm Voluma does show some immediate results in volume restoration. However, it can take around 2 weeks to settle and show the full result.
Can I sleep on my face after treatment?
It is advised that you avoid sleeping on your face for at least a week following your treatment. It is best if you sleep on your back for at least a day post-treatment. In fact, in some cases, it’s recommended that you sleep slightly elevated to allow the swelling to go down.
Does drinking water help my filler to settle?
Being hydrated can help with your absorption of hyaluronic-based fillers, but most importantly it can help your skin stay youthful and recover from any damage faster. Hydration is essential for multiple skincare reasons, not just for fillers.
Should you avoid touching your face after fillers? If so, for how long?
Yes, you should avoid touching the injection sites especially, but you should also avoid using make-up or applying anything else to your face for at least 6-8 hours post-treatment.
How can I speed up healing after a filler treatment?
Using a cold compress can reduce swelling and bruising, thus allowing you to see your full results faster. You should also avoid hot showers, as they can dry out your skin, and make sure to stay hydrated and keep your skin moisturized. You should also sleep elevated for the first night to reduce swelling and the chances of sleeping on your face.
As people age and lose volume in key areas of their face that contribute to how they perceive themselves and their age, their confidence and self-esteem can diminish as well.
