What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
As you age, it's not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
How does JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC work?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable gel temporarily restores volume
to the cheek area that is lost to aging in people over the age of 21. It contains
Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found on your skin. As
you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and
volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. JUVÉDERM
VOLUMA® XC restores fullness behind
flattening or sagging skin in the cheek area for a more youthful profile.
Are there any side-effects?
In a clinical study, most side effects were moderate in nature, and generally lasted 2 to 4 weeks. The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. These side effects are consistent with other facial-injection procedures. Although most side effects will resolve with time, some side effects may persist longer than 30 days. Your doctor may choose to treat them with medications, such as antibiotics, steroids, or hyaluronidase (an enzyme that breaks down HA). As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
