About Juvéderm Voluma XC
There are many different types of dermal fillers, each designed for specific areas of the face. Juvéderm Voluma XC, also simply called Voluma, is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is a part of the Juvéderm family. It is designed to correct the loss of volume in the midfacial area and cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma XC is part of a collection of fillers known for their natural look and feel.
Voluma is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance found in the skin. This substance is responsible for keeping your skin hydrated and fulfilled. HA fillers are soft gels, making them perfect products to restore volume to your face and keep your skin silky smooth.
The reason why Juvéderm Voluma XC is so effective in treating the cheeks and the chin is because of its consistency. Voluma has a high concentration of hyaluronic acid when compared to other dermal fillers. At 20 mg/mL, Voluma boasts an impressive lift capacity, which is important for such prominent features as the chin and the cheeks.
Dermal fillers are applied using fine, thin-gauged needles. They treat a variety of aging developments, such as wrinkles, loss of volume, scars and stretch marks to name a few. Juvéderm Voluma XC is an excellent, minimally-invasive way to add volume to the midface and chin.
At What Age Should I Get Juvéderm Voluma XC?
Patients who would like to lift and contour their faces without more intensive corrective surgery such as a facelift can revive their youthful vigor with Juvéderm Voluma XC. Administered in twenty minutes or less, an individually-tailored treatment of dermal fillers may be the perfect solution for you!
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
There are many benefits to receiving a dermal filler like Juvéderm Voluma XC. The primary benefit is an increase in facial volume that will take years off your face. Voluma is a naturally derived product that promotes collagen production and healthy skin.
Patients can add targeted volume to cheeks and restore the volume of their midface. Results look and feel natural. Your skilled injector will use care and precision to produce your desired outcome. Juvéderm Voluma XC not only adds volume, but it also improves the contour and balance of your face overall.
The “XC” in the product’s name indicates that Voluma contains lidocaine. Lidocaine helps minimize discomfort, eliminating the need for anesthesia. Juvéderm Voluma XC injections are well tolerated and incredibly convenient. In fact, Voluma is one of our many “lunchtime” procedures because you can receive your treatment during a midday break!
Benefits of Juvéderm Voluma XC
- Smooths away wrinkles caused by deflation and sagging
- Rounds out the natural contours of chin and cheeks
- Provides volume and dimension for up to two years!
To experience the benefits of Voluma for yourself, please contact Bridgetown Aesthetics at your earliest convenience.
As we age, our skin produces less collagen. Collagen is what provides structure, elasticity and glow to the skin. A lack of collagen can result in dull, thinning skin. With Juvéderm Voluma XC injections, your skin will return to the brilliant, smooth luster of your youth.
There are many individuals who can benefit from Juvéderm Voluma XC injections. Ideal candidates are people who have experienced significant volume loss in their midface and cheeks due to aging or weight loss. To determine if you are eligible for Voluma treatment, call (503) 505-5288 and connect with one of our attentive, knowledgeable staff.
Private Consultation in Portland, Oregon
Our goal at Bridgetown Aesthetics is to provide each patient with a treatment plan that best addresses their concerns and gives them beautiful, natural results. Dr. Hayes is a board-certified surgeon with decades of experience, but he also excels in the non-surgical realm. Dr. Hayes devotes time to supporting the aesthetics community by teaching other physicians his specialized techniques.
To learn more about Dr. Hayes before your arrival, please visit our blog.
During your personal consultation, you will get the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic goals and desired outcomes. We will inquire about your general health, past procedures and whether you have any drug allergies.
We will also examine your skin to ensure Juvéderm Voluma XC is the best option for your needs. Dr. Hayes may suggest alternative solutions that will better achieve your desired outcome. Together, you and Dr. Hayes will create a treatment plan that fully addresses your goals.
Dermal filler treatments are minimally-invasive and do not require much preparation. Dr. Hayes and his expert staff will inform you to stop taking anti-inflammatory drugs and stop smoking about two weeks before the injections are administered. Tobacco products leach moisture from your skin, and the whole point of hyaluronic acid-based fillers is to cradle your hydration on a cellular level. Smoking is counterproductive to the entire Voluma process.
You do not have to take medications prior to the procedure and pain medications are not necessary for recovery. Dr. Hayes and his staff encourage patients to voice all questions and concerns during the consultation appointment. Clients are welcome to contact the office at any time. Our goal at Bridgetown Aesthetics is to create relationships with our guests so as to better educate and create comfortable experiences for them. After all, a healthy patient is an informed patient.
The Juvéderm Voluma XC Procedure
Juvéderm Voluma XC is administered in a quick, easy procedure that takes less than twenty minutes to complete. When you arrive for your treatment, your skin will be cleansed in preparation for the placement of your Voluma injections.
Dr. Hayes will apply an anesthetic for patients who are concerned about discomfort. However, the lidocaine in Juvéderm Voluma XC will keep patients safe and comfortable throughout their treatment. Dr. Hayes will then apply the injections in the predetermined areas. Voluma injections are placed deeper than most dermal filler treatments to give cheeks their proper support. However, the solution is delivered through an ultrafine needle, so you will barely feel its presence.
A Bridgetown Aesthetics medical professional may massage the treatment areas to ensure the filler has been distributed evenly. Juvéderm Voluma XC can produce wonderfully fulfilling dimensions, but it needs a bit of time to adapt to its surroundings.
The injection sites may be slightly red or puffy after the Voluma treatment, but these symptoms will diminish quickly. You can safely apply a thin layer of makeup to reduce the visibility of redness, but please consult with your Bridgtown representative regarding the nature of your cosmetics.
Juvéderm Voluma XC injections require little to no downtime and patients commonly return to their work and regular schedule after their appointment. Please call (503) 505-5288 with any questions you may have regarding aftercare.
You will immediately notice the results of your Voluma treatment, but the rewards will continue to improve throughout the next few days. The solution will support the natural contours of the face, adding dimension and fullness to the youthful shape of your features. Voluma results may last for up to two years before the body naturally breaks down and absorbs the contents of the dermal filler solution.
For best results, continue a healthy skin care routine of cleansing and applying moisturizer every day. To maintain the rewards of a Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment, patients often schedule follow-up appointments several months after their initial session. During these appointments, Dr. Hayes will re-apply Voluma to the desired treatment areas.
Dermal fillers can safely and effectively be combined with neuromodulator injections such as Botox and Xeomin. These solutions temporarily disrupt the chemical signals flowing between muscles and nerves to produce a more relaxed, youthful appearance.
Neuromodulators ease the muscles for a few months to provide a rested look. An artful combination of Juvéderm Voluma XC and Botox or Xeomin will take years off your appearance!
The cost of Voluma depends on how many units of the solution you request and how extensive the treatment area is. Dr. Hayes provides transparent pricing during his comprehensive consultation. Please contact us to schedule an appointment and ask any questions you may have regarding cost, credit, and payment options.
