Knoxville JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC
JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC is the first injectable gel that is approved by the FDA for correction of volume loss in the cheeks. It is the newest injectable gel on the market, and is quickly replacing other injectable fillers to get rid of lower eyelid bags. One major benefit to JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC is that it lasts over two times longer than other hyaluronic acid fillers (such as standard JUVÉDERM™ , Restylane, or others) – up to two years from a single treatment!
Dr. Hall uses JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC to help:
- Reduce lower eyelid bags by adding volume to the cheeks
- Erase fine lines and wrinkles in the face
How does Knoxville JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC work?
JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps give support and volume to the skin. Because it is not a human-derived compound, no pretreatment testing is needed. It differs from other hyaluronic acid gels in that it is designed to add long-lasting volume to the cheeks.
Knoxville JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC Treatment
A typical treatment with JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC takes less than 30 minutes, depending on the areas you and Dr. Hall decide need to be treated. Anesthesia for the procedure can be accomplished in a number of different ways to minimize discomfort (some patients rely on the numbing agent in the gel itself, while others prefer topical skin-numbing cream or numbing injections). Dr. Hall performs all JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC injections himself.
You will see the results of JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC immediately after injection, and some temporary swelling and redness of the treated areas is common for the first day or two after the procedure. Occasionally, minor bruising occurs which usually disappears in a few days. The swelling and bruising can be minimized by avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen, or diet supplements containing fish oil or vitamin E for the week before your procedure.
The effects of JUVÉDERM™ Voluma XC last up to two years before re-treatment is necessary to maintain the correction, and some touch-up treatments can be added during that time to maintain the results.
