Juvederm Voluma XC

Hyaluronic acid fillers have been a popular “volumizers” that help to restore a youthful appearance to the face. There is now a new hyaluronic acid filler that has been ground breaking in facial rejuvenation. JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC (or simply known as Voluma) is injected into the cheek regions to recreate the volume that was once there when we were young. As a result, the area around the lower eyelid is more youthful as they appear less hollow, the laugh lines are softened as the cheeks are lifted. This is the first and only filler that is FDA approved for this purpose and works primarily by lifting. This volumizer has revolutionized the way we rejuvenate the face with fillers. In the past, large amounts of fillers were injected into the laugh lines in attempts to soften them. This would work to a certain extent, but in patients who had deep lines, injecting too much volume in these areas would create a heavy “bulldog” look to their faces. With Voluma, the cheek is lifted and the laugh lines are secondarily softened.*

Other benefits of Voluma are:

-Voluma can last a lot longer! Studies have shown that Voluma can last up to 2 years (compared to the 3-4 months that other hyaluronic acid fillers last).*
-Voluma feels natural. It is formulated as a thick, soft gel that injects easily and causes very little bruising and swelling.*
-Voluma has more comfortable. It contains lidocaine, which is a numbing agent that helps decrease discomfort with injections.*

For patients who are not yet ready to get a face lift (or don’t really need one just yet), Voluma may be a perfect option for them.

*Individual results may vary.

How long does the procedure take?

Numbing cream will be applied to your cheeks prior to injections to increase your comfort. The injection takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes. Dr. Wong and her team will work with you to make this experience as comfortable as possible.

Recovery

There is very minimal downtime with Voluma injections. There may be some mild swelling and bruising, which improves the first few days and is not often noticeable. Patients can usually go back to work after the procedure.*

*Individual results may vary.

A plastic surgeon’s touch

While there are many physicians offering filler injections, this procedure is different when it is performed in our plastic surgery office. Plastic surgeons offer years of experience, a deep understanding of facial anatomy, and medical artistry. You will meet Dr. Wong who will design a treatment plan especially for you and discuss safety information with you. Patients have often commented on how gentle we are and that they love their results!

We care about your safety.
Since hyaluronic acid fillers are expensive, there are pharmaceutical companies out there that give extreme discounts to providers on products that are advertised as similar, but may not be FDA approved or imported illegally into the United States. It’s nearly impossible to know what exactly is in these products. At our plastic surgery office, you can feel safe and secure knowing that Dr. Wong and her team care about their patients to only offer FDA approved injectables that are permitted for use in the United States. Our patients trust us with their health and aesthetic needs; we refuse to gamble with risky products just to save a few dollars.

Call and schedule an appointment today! Every patient has different anatomy and treatment goals. Dr. Wong will discuss the details and risks of Juvederm Voluma XC injection and provide you with a highly individualized treatment plan. We look forward to meeting you!
