As we get older, our skin's production of collagen is slower, leading to sagging skin and volume loss. This can lead to loss of definition and contour in the face, creating an older, more tired appearance. Many patients have concerns over the mid and lower face due to marionette lines and heavy jowling, but in reality these are attributed to volume loss in the upper/mid face, the area that Voluma aims to correct. Juvederm Voluma XC is a specially-formulated hyaluronic acid gel filler specifically designed to restore volume loss to the cheeks and adds instant volume that lasts for up to two years. The process of injection is as comfortable and pain-free as possible, as the the filler is formulated with the numbing agent lidocaine. It is thicker and firmer than other types of dermal fillers in order to provide the necessary volume and firmness to create a pleasing contour. Voluma is great for people of all ages from 18 and on wanting to restore volume their cheeks or chins. If you have flat cheeks or a weak chin, Voluma could help to create a better facial contour. Voluma is also used to restore the concavity of temporal hollows. Side effects of Voluma are minor and can include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects generally last anywhere from a day to a week, and will go away on their own. Ice and over the counter medication is usually sufficient to manage any discomfort. You may use makeup to cover any redness or bruising.
