What To Expect After Voluma Injections

What Is Juvederm Voluma XC?

Juvederm Voluma XC injectable gel is a smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) gel which contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). HA is a organically discovered sugar that occurs in the body. The function of HA in the skin is to give nutrients, and aid the skin in maintaining its natural moisture and gentleness. The addition of lidocaine helps to increase the benefit of the shot by guaranteeing that you feel as little discomfort as possible. Voluma XC is applied by an injection to the face to restore firmness and volume.

What Does Voluma XC Do?

Juvederm Voluma XC is made to fix age-related volume loss in the face, particularly to minimize wrinkles and improve the look of the cheeks. As you age, the cheek area loses its vibrant shape, drooping and sinking throughout the years, enhancing the deepness of the wrinkles along the mouth, eyes, and nose. The cheeks eventually begin to droop. 

Voluma XC temporarily turns around these all-natural indications of aging. The gel is infused directly right into the cheek to raise and efficiently contour the skin to make the client appear even more youthful and dynamic.

We do not recommend facial fillers for those that have experienced any kind of type of allergic reaction relating to a cosmetic treatment in the past. Ladies who are expecting or nursing are not good candidates to go through the filler therapy.

Within the initial 24 hours, you need to not attempt difficult workouts and decrease exposure to substantial sunshine or heat. Failing to avoid these things will certainly increase discomfort, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site. If there is swelling in spite of your best efforts to stay clear of the sunlight and excess heat, a cold pack might help to relax the skin.
