What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel?

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is an injectable gel designed to restore volume to the cheek area. The first FDA-approved injectable filler to provide instant cheek volume, it offers the lift patients want without the surgery and long recovery period. Approved for those over the age of 21, this outstanding wrinkle filler creates a youthful look for up to two years.

Do not confuse JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC with JUVÉDERM® XC, as the latter is designed to smooth lines and wrinkles, as well as treat folds around the mouth and nose. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC was created to provide cheeks with necessary volume.

Side effects from this popular wrinkle filler are mild and last two to four weeks. They include injection site tenderness, swelling, lumps and bumps, pain, bruising, redness, firmness, itching, and discoloration. Patients may resume normal activities within 24 hours of treatment.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC adds volume to all three cheek areas. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance present in human skin. With age comes the loss of this essential acid, and skin sags as a result. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC restores hyaluronic acid so patients may enjoy a youthful appearance once more.
