Middle Face

Voluma XC (long lasting injectable filler for mid-face)

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

FAQ

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from patients regarding Juvéderm Voluma XC treatments in Champaign-Urbana:

Is Juvéderm Voluma XC Painful?

Juvéderm Voluma XC injections come with some minor discomfort. However, the discomfort only lasts a few seconds as the needle is injected into the skin. At Rejuvenis, Dr. Russo will apply a topical numbing cream to more sensitive areas such as around the mouth and eyes.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Juvéderm Voluma XC is FDA-approved and extremely safe. While there are no long-term side effects, you may experience some of the following symptoms for a short period of time:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Itching

These symptoms tend to only appear at the injection site and will subside within a matter of hours. The Voluma XC treatment does not require any downtime whatsoever. You can return to your usual daily activities as soon as your doctor completes the procedure.

Who is the Best Candidate for Juvéderm Voluma XC?

Juvéderm Voluma XC in IL is available to both men and women 21 and older, regardless of their type or tone of the skin. While many believe that these injections are only useful for those who are showing signs of aging, Juvéderm Voluma XC can also offer impeccable results to younger men and women who have early fat volume loss in the cheeks. This form of treatment can help restore a more youthful appearance to people who have:

  • Aging skin
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Lost a significant amount of weight

What is the Difference Between Juvéderm and Other Fillers?

Juvéderm Voluma XC is different from other fillers as it is specifically designed to lift and fill the mid-region of the face as well as the cheeks. Using new technology from Allergan called Vycross, Voluma XC is a smooth gel that flows consistently, thus making it easy to sculpt. Thanks to its texture, Voluma XC produces a unique lift and fill, while also offering long-lasting results.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

The time the procedure takes depends entirely on the patient and the size of the area being treated. Typically, simple injections take 15 to 20 minutes. If you would like full face sculpting, you must expect the procedure to take longer. At Rejuvenis, located in Champaign-Urbana, IL, Dr. Russo will schedule an initial consultation to put together a treatment plan designed to meet your individual needs. He will explain all the options available, allowing you to achieve the aesthetic results you have been dreaming of.

How Long Does This Filler Last?

Juvéderm Voluma XC can last up to two years. These types of fillers stimulate the natural production of collagen in the body, offering long-lasting, more natural results. It is worth noting that results do vary according to each individual patient and their lifestyle choices.
