Dermal fillers are useful for improving the appearance of face without the need for surgery. Dermal fillers can plump under wrinkles or smooth lines and add volume to thin lips. However, most dermal fillers are for smaller volume increases in the face, and they need to be repeated every several months. Voluma XC from Juvederm is different than most other dermal fillers, offering volume for the midface, a much larger and deeper area than more dermal fillers can treat. Plus, the treatment lasts for up to two years, reducing the frequency of injections needed to maintain results.
How Voluma XC Works
Like most Juvederm products, Voluma XC uses hyaluronic acid as a filler, a naturally-occurring substance in the skin. This collects moisture to add volume under the skin. Voluma XC is formulated with lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort during the procedure. Unlike Juvederm products that are used right below the surface of the skin to fill lines, wrinkles or scars, Voluma XC is meant to fill deeper, replacing lost fat and tissue. The benefits include:
- Adding volume to sunken cheeks
- Filling in depressed temples
- Softening the face
- Reducing deeper lines in the mid-face region
Voluma XC can give a non-surgical lift to the cheeks, which can reduce bags under the eyes and make the face look years younger. The results can be beautiful and repeated injections may not be needed for two years.
When adding volume to shape the face, you want the specialized skill and talent of an experienced facial plastic surgeon. To learn more about Voluma XC, contact a local facial plastic surgeon clinic that offers Juvederm products.
