What is Juvéderm Voluma® XC?
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is an injectable dermal filler used to add volume to the cheeks and mid-face area. It is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to add moisture and plumpness to the skin.
Juvéderm Voluma® XC is designed to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks, which can occur due to the natural aging process or weight loss. It can also be used to enhance the cheekbones and create a more youthful and lifted appearance.
The “XC” in the product name indicates that the product contains a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which can help to reduce any discomfort during the injection process.
The process of receiving Juvéderm Voluma XC injections typically takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the extent of the treatment area and the number of injections needed.
The recovery time after receiving Juvéderm Voluma® XC injections is typically minimal, and most people are able to return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure.
After the injections, you may notice a fuller, more contoured look to your cheeks, with a lifting effect that can help to reduce the appearance of sagging or hollow areas.

What to Expect?
Before receiving Juvéderm Voluma® XC injections, you will typically have a consultation with a qualified healthcare provider to discuss your treatment goals and determine if the procedure is right for you. During the consultation, your healthcare provider will evaluate your skin, review your medical history, and discuss any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
You may be advised to avoid certain medications or supplements, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or vitamin E, for a few days prior to the procedure to minimize the risk of bleeding or bruising. You may also be advised to avoid alcohol for a few days before the procedure.
On the day of the procedure, your healthcare provider will clean the treatment area and may apply a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort during the injections.
