One of the most noticeable changes as your face matures is the loss of cheekbone definition. In the past, this was typically addressed with surgery, to tighten the overlying skin and lift the deeper soft tissues. Now, volumizing fillers are available to get a similar “lift” without surgery.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a new HA (hyaluronic acid) soft tissue filler. It’s the first formulated with lidocaine that is FDA-approved to restore age-related volume changes in the cheeks. It’s performance has been proven in Europe, where it’s been available since 2005, and in 72 countries worldwide.

What makes JUVEDERM VOLUMA a superior approach?
A hyaluronic acid-based (HA) filler, it’s made from long chains of sugars that occur naturally in the skin. It’s a significant advance in dermal filler technology for restoring lost volume and contour in the mid-face. Benefits:
- Formulated with HA cross-linking through a process called Vycross, providing excellent lifting capacity and slower degradation
- Longer-lasting, almost twice as long as other fillers, with studies showing it can last up to two years
- Includes lidocaine, an anesthetic, for added comfort during treatment
- Can be molded and shaped into the desired contours after injection
- Non-animal based formula
- Provides optimum results with only one treatment
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance which provides lubrication for your body’s tissues. By injecting this substance under the skin, Juvéderm Voluma XC adds volume and lifts the skin, giving it a smoother appearance.
With expert application, the results of Juvéderm Voluma XC may last as long as two years. Though each patient’s experience may be different, many patients experience long-lasting, natural-looking results and sometimes even a long-term increase in the production of natural collagen after this treatment.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is approved for use as an injectable filler for the cheeks and chin. Juvéderm Voluma XC can restore aging- related volume loss in the cheeks and can shape and enhance the chin for an improved facial profile.
The ideal candidate for Juvéderm Voluma XC is any adult over the age of 21 who has experienced a loss of volume on the cheeks and subsequent sagging skin or who desires a more defined chin. Juvéderm Voluma XC can work for any skin type and works well for both men and women.
The results of Juvéderm Voluma XC are immediate. Most patients walk out of the office with a noticeable improvement. Full results become visible within 2-3 weeks. Once the full results set in, you should be able to enjoy them for up to two years.
You can expect your Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment to take around half an hour, making it a perfect lunchtime procedure. During your treatment, the doctor will administer a series of strategically placed injections which should not cause much discomfort as Juvéderm Voluma XC contains lidocaine to ensure comfortable application. The doctor may gently massage the area after treatment and ice the area to reduce any swelling.
There is little to no downtime expected after receiving Juvéderm Voluma XC with most patients returning to normal activities immediately after the treatment. The doctor may advise avoiding sunlight, heat and strenuous activity immediately after the treatment.
