Voluma™ XC is used by both men and women today to add instant volume to the apex, apple and hollow of the cheek area, and is clinically proven to last up to two years with very minimal downtime. While it is mainly made out of hyaluronic acid, like Juvederm™ XC, Voluma™ XC is modified to give more of a subtle lifting result, restoring volume back to the cheek area.
This is a great non-surgical option if you’re looking for a subtle change in regaining a youthful appearance.
A Voluma™ XC procedure begins with the application of a topical Lidocaine-based cream to the numb the areas for ten to fifteen minutes, followed by a thorough cleansing and prepping of the target area. This cosmetic procedure may require multiple injections and takes anywhere from thirty to forty minutes. As with any injectable procedure, there is a chance of bruising, and all patients are giving a cooling agent immediately following the procedure to decrease swelling. There may be some mild redness and swelling at the injection site, and we suggest a full week to see optimal results.
Voluma™ XC is developed by Allergan and eligible for credit towards Brilliant Distinctions. Many TLC Laser & Skincare patients opt in to our free program, Brilliant Distinctions, to receive credit for each treatment. This credit can be applied toward your favorite Allergan tretments and Skin Medica product purchases.
We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our free consultation to determine if Voluma™ XC is right for you.
Voluma™ XC History
Recognized as the first and only filler on the market to instantly add volume to the cheek area, Voluma™ XC received FDA approval in October of 2013. Using the Allergan VYCROSS technology, this filler has been cross-linked differently to allow for more lifting capacity with clinically proven results lasting up to two years.
How long do Voluma™ XC results last?
Voluma™ XC clinical studies report that results may last up to two years.
When will I see results?
Voluma™ XC results are immediate, with mild swelling and sensitivity up to 24 hours.
Is one brand or product better than another?
While some products may be similar, there is no other injectable filler product with as immediate and long-lasting results as Voluma™ XC.
Can I schedule a Voluma™ XC treatment the day before a big event?
No, as any injectable product, Voluma™ XC treatment has potential for down time. While not everyone will bruise, there will be swelling at the injection site and potential for bruising lasting up to one week. Usually injection point swelling and redness is gone within 24 hours.
Can I get Voluma™ XC done the same day as other injectable procedures?
Yes, you can receive Voluma™ XC the same day you receive other injectable treatments such as Botox, Dysport and Jeuveau. We do prefer, however, to treat after any laser procedures.
Does the Voluma™ XC procedure hurt?
With the topical numbing applied before the procedure, patients Voluma™ XC as a pinch with pressure. Lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, is mixed with the product to make the process more comfortable. Most patients may experience mild soreness up to 24 hours after the procedure.
How does Voluma™ XC lift the treated area?
Using the VYCROSS technology, the high concentration of cross-linked Hyaluronic acid provides a long-lasting lift to the cheek area.
How much does Voluma™ XC cost?
Voluma™ XC treatment cost is based on how many syringes are used for the procedure. The number varies depending on the areas being treated and wrinkle depth. An optimal treatment plan and cost will be discussed during the free consultation with our nurse injector. They will give you an expected price prior to the procedure. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the nurse injector who is administering your treatment.
What happens if I need more correction or it didn’t quite work in an area?
As a practice based on patient satisfaction and results, TLC Laser & Skincare offers a 2 week follow up visit and is happy to perform adjustments after your treatment. We are true believers that less is more, so there are many cases where we start more conservative and can add more to the treatment if necessary, to give patients a more natural result.
Voluma™ XC: Are You A Candidate?
If you’re looking for a non-surgical option to regain that youthful appearance, then Voluma™ XC may be the product for you.
