What's Juvederm Voluma® XC?

Find out more about this unique dermal filler and what it can do to boost your skin’s appearance.

As we get older we start to notice that our once supple and cherub-like cheeks are now sagging and sinking. If only there was a simple way to fix this without needing invasive procedures? Well actually, there is. Our Warrenton, VA, dermatologist, Dr. Juan-Carlos Caballero, has information on Juvederm Voluma® XC and how it might work to breathe life back into your aging skin.

What is Juvederm Voluma® XC?

This dermal filler is made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is already naturally found within the body and helps to lift and rejuvenate sagging skin. Even though we already have hyaluronic acid in our bodies this substance does start to deplete as we age. By injecting hyaluronic acid into these areas, we can help to bring volume and youthfulness back into your face.

What skin problems can it treat?

While Voluma® XC is mostly intended for treating a loss of volume within the cheeks, it can also help to provide a more youthful shape and contouring of higher regions of the cheekbones for women.

What should I expect from treatment?

Most people worry that getting dermal fillers will hurt, but there is very little discomfort associated with getting them. Before we inject the filler, our Warrenton, VA, skin doctors will apply a numbing cream to these areas. Once the area is numb a small needle is used to place the filler beneath the skin. 

How long will my results last?

What makes Juvederm Voluma® XC such a popular treatment is that results can last up to two years. Your health or your body makeup will determine how it interacts with hyaluronic acid and how long your results will last.
