Juvéderm® Voluma® Xc in Reno, NV
The aesthetic effects of aging are often most apparent on the face. Volume loss, the formation of wrinkles, and the presence of sagging skin all combine to make your face (and your entire appearance) look much older than you are (and certainly older than you feel). This can be most apparent in the midface, where many men and women suffer from thin and gaunt cheeks or the unsightly appearance of jowls.
Many men and women feel frustrated and self-conscious about facial skin blemishes. However, there is a way to help correct these aesthetic issues and feel better about the way you look. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is a way to restore a fuller and more youthful aesthetic to your face.Schedule a Consultation
What Are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC?
One of the most common side effects of aging is volume loss. This happens because proteins, including collagen (which is responsible for the health and strength of our skin), begin to break down. This volume loss is often most noticeable in the mid face and cheeks, which can cause our faces to look gaunt and even skeletal. VOLUMA® XC helps correct lost volume by adding structure and support in these areas. You will be able to smile at your fuller, healthier cheeks.
Reduced Sagging Skin and Wrinkles
Along with a breakdown of collagen in the body, the amount of elastin in our skin also decreases as we age. Elastin is responsible for the elastic quality of our skin. When this happens, our skin becomes more lax, causing it to sag or develop wrinkles and fine lines, including deeper, more pronounced nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth. The good thing is that VOLUMA® XC lifts the skin to help rid you of loose and sagging skin and minimize the presence of wrinkles so that your skin looks and feels smooth and healthy.
So many men and women feel self-conscious about age-related changes in their face. They may cover themselves up in clothing, hats, and/or glasses, or they may completely refrain from participating in social gatherings. But after your JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC treatment, you can hopefully feel comfortable and confident in the way you look. With a successful treatment, you can smile and laugh along with your friends, knowing that you look great.
How Is a VOLUMA® XC Treatment Performed?
As with any cosmetic treatment, your consultation is one of the most important steps in your VOLUMA® XC treatment. At your VOLUMA® XC consultation, you will be able to share your aesthetic frustrations and discuss your goals for your appearance.
A topical anesthesia will be applied to the treatment area. Then, one of our aesthetic nurse specialists will inject VOLUMA® XC into your cheeks. In general, one to two syringes are used for each cheek, depending on the severity of your condition and the extent of correction needed.
What Can I Expect for My VOLUMA® XC Treatment?
One of the best parts of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is that there is no downtime associated with the treatment. While you should refrain from any strenuous activity for the rest of the day, you will be able to return to your normal, daily activities.
Most patients report little to no pain or discomfort from this treatment. This is due in large part to the topical anesthesia used before the injections. Additionally, the VOLUMA® XC solution includes lidocaine, which helps deter pain and discomfort.
It will take anywhere from two to three weeks for your VOLUMA® XC results to settle and become final. However, before this time, you will see increased improvement to the appearance of your cheeks.
Like all cosmetic treatments, VOLUMA® XC cost varies for each individual patient and treatment. The cost of your treatment is dependent on several factors, including the extent of correction needed and the amount of VOLUMA® XC required. You will be provided a price estimate for your procedure at your consultation.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is VOLUMA® XC?
VOLUMA® XC is a dermal filler from the trusted and effective JUVÉDERM® family. And not only that, but VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to treat skin blemishes on the cheeks.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is an injectable treatment that uses hyaluronic acid (HA) to correct issues in the midface. Hyaluronic acid works by absorbing and retaining moisture in your skin, which gives your skin a plumper, more vibrant appearance. Whether it be lost volume, sagging skin, or wrinkles, this treatment can help you look younger than you have in years.
How many JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC treatment sessions do I need to have?
A positive of VOLUMA® XC is that you only need to have one treatment session to attain the results you desire. However, it is important to note that as the solution wears off over time, you will need to have maintenance treatments.
How long will my VOLUMA® XC results last?
Your VOLUMA® XC results can last up to two years (when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise). The longevity of results varies by patient and how their body absorbs the product.
How is VOLUMA® XC different from other dermal fillers?
The thing to know about dermal fillers is that each is designed to treat various parts of the face and body. VOLUMA® XC was created to address issues in the midface. However, VOLUMA® XC can last much longer than other dermal fillers (up to two years, where other fillers tend to only last six to 12 months before requiring maintenance injections).
How long does a VOLUMA® XC treatment take to perform?
This treatment only takes a few minutes to complete, which means that you can get back to your life immediately following your injectable treatment.
Can I combine my VOLUMA® XC treatment with any other procedures?
Yes. Since VOLUMA® XC only addresses issues in the midface, many patients combine their VOLUMA® XC treatment with facial rejuvenation treatments that address concerns in other areas of the face.
Some of these other treatments include BOTOX® Cosmetic for correction in the upper face and KYBELLA® for correction in the chin and neck.
Are there any risks associated with VOLUMA® XC?
The reality is that any cosmetic treatment carries some risks. While major complications have not been reported, VOLUMA® XC patients may experience some side effects that include:
- Allergic reaction
- Soreness in the injection site
