What Is Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is an injectable gel for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21.
As we age, our skin gradually loses volume, contributing to less full-looking cheeks and more prominent lines and wrinkles throughout your face. Although entirely natural, visible signs of aging can leave you looking older than you feel. If you’ve struggled to accept your wrinkles, know you’re not alone—and you’re not out of luck. There is a simple way to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without harsh chemical treatments or the use of Botox. This method is known as Juvéderm Voluma™ XC, and it may be the answer you’ve been looking for. This injectable gel is specifically formulated for deep injection in the cheek area, helping correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21.
Juvéderm Voluma XC Is Different from Juvéderm
Though both Juvéderm Voluma XC and standard Juvéderm treat the appearance of fine lines, they target different areas. Juvéderm Voluma is ideal for patients concerned about the volume of their cheeks, while Juvéderm works best in the lip and chin areas, restoring volume to your grin and lip line. The two formulas differ in consistency and elasticity, so they cannot be used interchangeably. Prior to scheduling a treatment, you’ll want to speak with your dermatologist at Swyner-Woseth Dermatology to discuss the areas you’re most concerned about.
Regardless of which solution you use or where the injection is applied, you’ll receive long-lasting results that will help give you a youthful look for up to two years. Best of all, there’s little to no downtime after the procedure, so you can immediately enjoy the feeling of a vibrant complexion. With so many benefits, why settle for unwanted lines and wrinkles when you can immediately reduce the signs of aging with a simple procedure?
