How does it work?
Similar to the original JUVÉDERM® solution, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin’s collagen and elastin ward off wrinkles and sagginess, and also works as a natural moisturizer. The clear solution is injected into the treatment sites with a thin needle and typically begins working almost immediately. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC helps fill in wrinkles and signs of aging along the face and can be very useful for adding volume to cheeks that have taken on a hollow or “sunken” appearance.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC contains a local anesthetic in its solution that works to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Most patients say they experience little to no discomfort during treatment.
How long is a treatment session?
Treatment is relatively quick and usually takes about 30 minutes. It can typically be completed during a lunch break.

What are the side effects?
As with any injectable cosmetic procedure, there is a potential risk for side effects, including redness, swelling, and tenderness. However, most side effects following treatment are minimal and should quickly subside.
When can I expect to see results?
Many patients experience benefits of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC immediately after treatment.
How long should I expect for recovery?
One of the pros of this treatment option is that there is usually no downtime after treatment. Most people can return to work the same day, immediately following the procedure.
How long does it last?
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is designed to be long-lasting. One treatment can last up to two years.
