Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable gel that is a smooth, colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. Lidocaine helps to improve the comfort for the injection. Voluma is delivered by an injection into the cheek and surrounding area. It is an injection for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume deficit.
As you age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape. The cheeks flatten out and the skin may begin to sag. This injectable gel is designed to temporarily reverse these signs of aging.
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. You may have minor swelling and bruising after your treatment. In the clinical studies, results lasted up to 2 years.
