What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC ?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to gently lift the skin and restore volume that is lost from aging. It is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid which is a natural complex sugar that occurs within our bodies.
What makes JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC different from other fillers?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC was specially designed to fill and lift the mid-face and cheeks. It uses a new advanced technology from Allergan which is called Vycross that results in a smooth gel that flows easily and consistently and which can be nicely sculpted. This special cross-linking technology not only produces the lift and fill that is unique to Voluma, but it also contributes to its long-lasting nature.
What is the cost?
$799 per syringe. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the professional who is administering your treatment. It is more important to find an experienced professional who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you. Juvéderm Voluma XC® is a technique-sensitive treatment—be wary of discount products or “cheap” Juvéderm Voluma XC® fillers—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. A good way to be sure that you are receiving genuine Allergen product is to ask about the Brilliant Distinctions program.
How long does it last ?
Up to two years with optimal correction. There is evidence that hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm actually help to stimulate the production of new collagen by your own body so that longer duration of improvement may be seen. Also depending on various factors of your health, weight and body chemistry as well as the volume injected and the skill of the injector duration of correction may be shorter (or even longer) than two years.
How long does a treatment take?
That depends on the extent of the areas being treated, the volume of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC being used and also the complexity of the treatment. Simple injections might take only 15 or 30 minutes, but treatment can require considerably more time depending on what is being treated. We book for 60 minutes, giving our clients time to relax or numb if needed.
