JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Injectable dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, are popular options at our Tucson practice for patients who wish to smooth wrinkles and refresh their faces without the downtime or expense associated with surgery. Until recently, lines and wrinkles were the primary focus of these dermal fillers. Although they could create beautiful results, they only addressed one component of facial aging. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the first injectable filler to be FDA-approved to replace lost volume in the cheeks, another component of aging, and create a youthful plumpness.Brilliant LogoSign up for the Brilliant Distinctions Program to receive special offers on select Allergan products & services.

What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is an FDA-approved injectable gel that's used to add volume to the cheeks, restoring a plump, youthful appearance to an area where volume is commonly lost over time. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our own skin. Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated and soft, but its production often slows with age, contributing to wrinkles and skin laxity. When injected into the cheeks by an experienced medical professional, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC creates a fuller, rounder appearance for a youthful-looking profile. Our injectors have been trained to administer this product with a conservative, subtle approach that gives the cheeks a lifted, natural look without appearing puffy.
What does JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC help?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is intended for use in the cheeks. It is the first and only injectable filler that's been FDA-approved to replace lost volume in this important area of the face. Skin Spectrum offers a wide selection of safe, effective dermal fillers for treating other areas of the face that show fine lines or wrinkles. Your treatment could also be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for wrinkles around the eyes. During your consultation, Dr. Comstock or Dr. Pai works with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses each of your aesthetic concerns.

What can I expect?
At our Tucson practice, a typical JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC procedure is similar to other dermal filler treatments. Our Skin Spectrum specialists, who have extensive experience and training as injectors, consult with each patient and perform the treatments. Our Skin Spectrum specialists will first cleanse and numb the area to be treated with a topical anesthetic or cold compress. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC comes pre-formulated with lidocaine, an anesthetic, so patient comfort is enhanced. The product is then injected into the cheeks using a fine needle. Most sessions take less than 30 minutes to complete. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours after treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC differs from other injectable dermal fillers in that the results of a single treatment can last for up to 2 years. Its longevity makes it a great option for people who prefer not to return regularly for touch-ups.

JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus
With its larger molecules, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus is another option for our patients that's ideal for treating deeper lines and wrinkles, as well as adding volume and shape to the lips. Also made from hyaluronic acid, this injectable filler can beautifully complement the effects of VOLUMA, or it can be quite effective on its own.
The side effects of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC are typically mild and temporary and are similar to those of other injectable dermal fillers. Following your treatment, you may experience swelling, tenderness, bruising, redness, and itching near the injection site. These effects typically diminish within 2 to 4 weeks.
