Voluma XC A stunning, 30-minute “facelift” without surgery

As the face matures, it’s natural to see the skin succumb to wrinkles, creases, and fine lines, and luckily, there are many cosmetic treatments available – both surgical and non-surgical – to brilliantly address such imperfections. Yet beyond these more obvious signs of aging, patients may encounter another equally devastating issue: the slow and subtle siphoning off of facial volume that leaves behind hollow, sunken cheeks.

While external influences such as sun exposure and gravity play a large role in causing wrinkles, loss of definition in the midface is due atrophy and descent of the soft tissues of the face.

Allergan’s newest soft tissue filler Voluma XC represents an ingenious breakthrough solution in restoring the elusive facial fullness of youth. With just one injection, HA-based Voluma can revitalize sagging skin, plumping and lifting the cheeks for beautifully vital contours and a refreshed smile.

Benefits of Voluma XC include…

  • FDA-approved, in use for over a decade in nearly 80 countries worldwide
  • Liquid “fountain of youth”
  • Hypoallergenic, no animal toxins
  • Safe, non-invasive, non-surgical
  • Virtually no downtime or discomfort
  • Uniquely formulated to replenish facial volume in the cheeks
  • Can be combined with other injectables and fillers
  • Extra long-lasting, with results visible for up to two years

Undergoing the Voluma XC procedure

To ensure your comfort and relaxation during treatment, Voluma XC is pre-formulated with lidocaine, a potent local anesthetic. Your doctor will carefully select the midface injection sites, often marking them with a cosmetic pen for maximum precision. The Voluma XC gel is then administered through a slim, painless needle that is in and out within seconds, after which the doctor will massage the treatment sites to ensure the filler is evenly and thoroughly distributed.

The amount of filler needed will depend a great deal on the extent of volume depletion in the patient’s cheeks, with older clients requiring higher quantities. If you and your doctor have agreed upon additional injectables such as Botox or Juvederm, these can be applied during the same session as Voluma XC for enhanced results.
