Voluma is an FDA-approved dermal filler from Allergan, makers of Botox, Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus, and LATISSE.
Voluma is a member of the Juvederm family that is specifically formulated for adding volume to the apex, apple, and hollow of the cheek. Like Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus, Voluma comes in a syringe, and made from a stabilized hyaluronic acid. The XC after the Voluma name means that it contains lidocaine, so the injection itself is more comfortable. Clinical studies have shown Voluma results to last up to two years (individual results may vary).
Juvéderm® Voluma XC
Juvéderm® Voluma XC is the newest dermal filler from Allergan. It is the first and only injectable gel that is approved by the FDA for cheek volume, and you can get it at Body Beautiful Spa!
Loss of facial volume is one of the most significant signs of aging. The loss of volume in your cheeks can cause your facial contour to flatten, and can contribute to formation of larger folds, particularly “smile lines”. With optimal treatment, Voluma is clinically proven to last up to two years.
How Do Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Voluma Differ?
Voluma is specifically formulated to correct sunken or sagging skin on the cheeks.
Juvederm Ultra (a thinner formulation) and Juvederm Ultra Plus (a thicker formulation) are designed to correct moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth. In contrast, Voluma is specifically formulated to correct sunken or sagging skin on the cheeks. It contains lidocaine because it is designed to be injected deeply on top of the cheek bones. Adding volume to the cheeks can result in smoother, more youthful facial contour. It can also help minimize folds running from the nose to the mouth. Best of all, where Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra can last up to one year, Juvederm Voluma lasted up to two years in clinical studies.
What to Expect After a Voluma Injection
You can expect INSTANT RESULTS!!
However, as with all dermal fillers, there can be some temporary side effects, including redness, swelling, bruising, or lumps. You may be given a reusable ice pack to use throughout the day. As with all dermal fillers, you’ll be advised to avoid strenuous exercise, extended sun or heat exposure, and to avoid certain facial products within the first 24 hours after the procedure. Clinical participants were between the ages of 35 and 65 years of age, and reported still looking 5 years younger 6 months after their treatment.
