Juvederm / Voluma


What is JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC?
JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is a smooth, colorless hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of HA in the skin is to deliver nutrients and help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. The addition of lidocaine helps to improve the comfort of the injection. JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is manufactured using VYCROSS™ technology to give a specialized smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results at the treatment site. JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC is delivered by an injection into the cheek and surrounding area of the mid-face to correct volume and fullness.

Procedure for Injecting JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC
One of Voluma's ingredient is lidocaine which relieves some of the injection pain. Additional topical anesthetic may be applied for more comfort. After the first injection into the cheek, your doctor will wait a few seconds to allow the lidocaine to take effect before moving forward with the rest of the treatment. JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC will be injected in small amounts over the treatment area until the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved. Your doctor may massage the treatment area gently to assure that the product is evenly distributed. An ice pack may be applied for a brief period following treatment to minimize swelling and reduce pain.

JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC Side Effects
Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
