- Results are immediate and long lasting – up to 2 years!
- It’s non-invasive and safe
- Treatment sessions are fast and pain-free
How Voluma XC works
As you grow older, you may notice that your cheeks have lost their youthful roundness and are beginning to sag. As your cheek pads move downwards, your lower face begins to appear heavier. Jowls form along your jawline and the folds around your mouth become deeper and more pronounced. Voluma XC combats these problems by replacing the lost volume in your cheeks to restore a youthful lift. As a more youthful lift is restored, signs of aging on the lower face are erased.
Voluma XC contains hyaluronic acid, a safe and effective dermal filler that can correct signs of aging for up to 2 years. Once it is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion beneath your skin, restoring a youthful lift and fullness to the face.
What to expect during your treatment
Before injecting Voluma XC, a numbing cream will be applied to your cheeks to minimize discomfort. Then Bonnie, Dr. Villa or Dr. Swarup will mark your face with a special pen to indicate where the filler will be injected. The nurse or doctor will then inject the filler deep into your skin beneath the muscles in several locations, following the natural contour of your cheeks. With each injection, they gently massage the area to distribute it evenly under your skin.
After your treatment
Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to resume normal activities immediately. Bruising and swelling are not common with Voluma XC, but if it does occur it usually dissipates completely within three days. The effects of Voluma XC are immediate, but it may take a few weeks to see the full results of your treatment. Because Voluma XC is injected so deep within the facial muscles, the results last much longer than other hyaluronic dermal fillers. You can expect to experience the rejuvenating effects of Voluma XC for up to 2 years!
