JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC®
As we age, it’s natural to experience loss of facial volume and skin elasticity. Besides seeing lines and wrinkles, you may start to notice a loss of fullness in your cheeks, which can give your face a hollow, sagging appearance. Although there are many dermal fillers on the market that can restore facial fullness and volume, Juvederm Voluma was the first that was specially formulated to enhance the cheeks while gently lifting the jowls to reveal a smoother jawline. We’re excited to offer Voluma in our facial aesthetics practices in Portland, OR and Santa Monica, CA, and invite you to learn more about this long-lasting filler below.
Juvederm Voluma XC: Cheek Enhancement from the Makers of Botox
Juvederm Voluma is a dermal filler from the Juvederm family containing hyaluronic acid, a component made by the body naturally. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for transporting vital nutrients to your skin, increasing moisture levels, and maintaining the strength and elasticity of your skin. Your body makes less hyaluronic acid as you get older, causing you to lose structure and volume. Voluma is designed to counteract aging by restoring lost volume and gently lifting sagging skin.
Juvederm Voluma can:
• Replenish facial fullness
• Lift sagging skin to regain youthful contours
• Restore age-related loss of volume and shape to the cheeks
The Ideal Candidate for Juvederm Voluma XC
If you are over the age of 21 and are looking for a nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment to restore facial fullness and volume, you may be a good candidate for Juvederm Voluma. Since the treatment is FDA approved and contains a modified form of the hyaluronic acid your body makes naturally, it is considered a safe treatment for men and women. Ideal candidates for Juvederm Voluma are also in good health, have realistic expectations of what to expect following treatment, and fully understand the treatment process. When you visit Skin by Lovely for your initial consultation in Santa Monica, CA or Portland, OR, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will determine if Voluma is the perfect treatment for you.
The Juvederm Voluma Consultation
When you come into our office for your consultation, one of our expert providers will discuss your medical history and perform a full examination of your facial anatomy and overall skin health. After explaining the Juvederm Voluma procedure and discussing your aesthetic goals, your provider will create an individualized treatment plan that will meet your needs.
Juvederm Voluma XC Injections
During a Juvederm Voluma treatment session, your provider will make a series of injections to your cheek area. To ensure Voluma is evenly distributed, your provider may gently massage the treatment area. The number of injections you require to achieve optimal results will be determined by your provider. After treatment, ice may be applied to reduce swelling and redness.
Juvederm Voluma Results
Immediately after treatment, you can expect an increase in facial volume and fullness and a gentle lifting of sagging skin around the cheek area. Since it is normal to experience some facial swelling around the treatment area, it may take up to two weeks for you to see full results. The results from Juvederm Voluma last up to two years, and you will only require touch-up treatments after this time to maintain your youthful contours.

What Is Juvederm Voluma XC?
Juvederm Voluma XC is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, a substance produced by the body naturally that maintains skin’s elasticity, strength, and moisture levels. Produced by Allergan, the makers of Botox, Juvederm Voluma works by restoring levels of hyaluronic acid. This helps to add tissue volume and structure to your cheeks, restoring youthful contour and shape to your face.

How Is a Procedure With Juvederm Voluma XC Performed?
After a consultation complete with medical history and examination, Juvederm Voluma is administered to your cheek area using a fine needle by an Aesthetic Injection Specialist who will then use their fingers to mold the filler for best results.
How Long Does a Treatment With Juvederm Voluma Take?
A typical Juvederm Voluma treatment takes about 30 minutes.
How Long Will the Results of Juvederm Voluma Last?
Compared to other dermal fillers on the market, Juvederm Voluma offers results that last up to two years. In a clinical study, nearly 70 percent of people who received Voluma injections were still enjoying their results two years after their first treatment.
Are Juvederm Voluma Injections Painful?
Juvederm Voluma contains an anesthetic called lidocaine to reduce patient discomfort. Most people report only minor discomfort during treatment, and we also offer topical anesthesia to make sure you’re comfortable during the procedure.
What Can I Expect During the Juvederm Voluma Recovery Period?
There is virtually no downtime when you get a Juvederm Voluma treatment, and you will be able to resume most activities immediately after the procedure, though we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and limiting your exposure to sunlight and extreme heat. Keep in mind that it is perfectly normal to experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. These effects are only temporary and should subside within two to four weeks.
When Can I Return to Work After a Treatment With Juvederm Voluma XC?
After receiving Juvederm Voluma injections, most people can return to work immediately.
What Are the Risks of Juvederm Voluma XC Injections?
One of the main benefits of Juvederm Voluma is that the procedure has a very low risk of moderate side effects. Side effects can include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, lumps, and tenderness at the injection site. These issues will resolve over time and should dissipate within a month. In extremely rare cases, vision problems or allergic reactions have occurred after receiving Juvederm Voluma injections. However, a full medical history and examination by a medically-licensed Aesthetic Injection Specialist will help prevent the more serious, but rare, side-effects.
Who Should Not Receive Juvederm Voluma XC?
To avoid complications and unsatisfactory results, we recommend that you do not receive Juvederm Voluma if you have a history of any allergic reaction from products containing lidocaine or the bacterial proteins used to make Juvederm Voluma. Our providers will also give you a full examination and review your health history to determine if it’s safe for you to receive treatment.
Are Juvederm Voluma Injections Affordable?
As Juvederm Voluma XC lasts for up to 2 years, the investment in your appearance is worthwhile. A quick visit to our before and after gallery will also reveal the value of Voluma treatments.
