What Is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC?
VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21. As you age, you start to lose hyaluronic acid (HA), which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. VOLUMA™ XC helps restore lost volume and give your face a more youthful look.

What makes VOLUMA™ XC different?
VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only FDA approved product to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face. It was specifically developed to restore lost facial volume in the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. While wrinkle fillers offer excellent results when applied to fine lines and wrinkles, VOLUMA™ XC is better suited to treat larger-scale facial volume loss.
During the procedure?
One of our experts at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center will have an in-depth consultation with you to understand your needs and what facial features you would like to enhance. They will explain all the options to make sure that your treatment totally satisfies your expectations.

Discomfort is minimal and treatment time is less than 30 minutes. Patients are able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
Will the procedure hurt?
The XC in VOLUMA™ XC means there is a small amount of lidocaine which helps to numb the area during the treatment process for a more comfortable experience. Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
