Voluma® XC

As you age, wrinkles and sagging skin over your cheeks and those “parentheses” lines around your mouth can make you look older than you feel. If you have lost some volume around your cheeks and are looking to restore a rounder, fuller and more youthful look, you may want to consider Voluma. From the makers of Juvederm®, Voluma XC is a quick-acting injectable gel filler that immediately lifts and smoothes the cheeks and lasts for up to two years.

Let our team bring that youthfulness and vitality you desire back to your face.

The Procedure

Voluma XC is a quick process that can be completed in one 30-minute appointment. We examine the cheeks and determine the treatment areas, then inject the Voluma material into the apex, apple and hollow of your cheek. The results are almost immediate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is recovery like? You can return to your everyday activities immediately, although we suggest that you refrain from strenuous physical activity for one to two days after any injectable filler treatments. You may feel some tenderness, swelling or discoloration after the treatment, but it should subside completely in two to four weeks.

Is the effect permanent? The results of Voluma XC treatment can last longer than other injectable fillers, but they still typically start to fade after around two years. You can come back for additional treatments, but if you would like something more permanent, you may want to consider cheek implants or a facelift.

Is it safe? Hyaluronic acid, the main active ingredient in Voluma XC, is a naturally occurring substance in the body. For that reason, there is little to no risk of harmful chemical side effects. The active ingredient is paired with lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to reduce pain at the injection sites. We discuss all safety information with you before any procedure.
