Juvederm Voluma™ XC

This recently FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler is making a significant impact in the approach of facial augmentation. Voluma™ XC has a unique VYCROSS™ technology consisting of highly cross-linked HA which allows for more durability. Additionally, the VYCROSS™ technology lends to a long lasting lift to the area(s) treated with treatment duration up to 2 years in some patients. The consistency of this HA gel allows for an easy flow on injection and provides for a soft, natural look. For those patients who are noticing volume loss in the cheek area, Voluma XC is the go-to product that can be injected by a trained professional in only a few minutes. The product has lidocaine infused throughout the gel which provides for a more comfortable experience. The treatment session lasts 45 minutes to one hour.

Recent studies report that Voluma XC can provide a subtle lift, provide a more youthful contour to the face and can last up to 2 years. Study patients report looking up to 5 years younger. This non-surgical procedure can be utilized for a natural appearing enhancement to help you look your best every day!
