When We Use Voluma XC
Voluma XC is a variation on Juvéderm, the most popular injectable filler in the US. Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural moisturizer found in your eyes, joints, and even skin.
Voluma XC has been specifically modified to be more structurally supportive than other injectable fillers. This makes it ideal for use in the cheeks. Common applications of Voluma XC include:
- Reshaping cheeks to give the appearance of prominent cheekbones
- Creating an attractive, youthful fullness in cheeks
- Lifting facial tissues sagging due to age
- Restoring volume lost due to illness, weight loss, or age
Voluma XC can help people who have never been happy with the appearance of their cheeks as well as those who are unhappy about changes in their facial appearance. Varying the placement and volume of Voluma XC used can create a wide range of aesthetic effects. The ability to achieve certain effects depends on the talent and experience of your injector.
Benefits of Voluma XC
Voluma XC isn’t the only filler that can be used for restoring volume to your cheeks, but it may be the best. That’s because Voluma XC:
- Gives instant results
- Gives predictable, consistent results
- Lifts more than other injectable fillers
- Is a smooth injectable
- Results in less discomfort than other fillers
- Is completely reversible
- Soft, natural feeling
- Is very long-lasting
Before Voluma XC, contouring the cheeks was a major problem for injectable fillers. Fillers like Juvéderm worked great for lip augmentation and for filling wrinkles, but they just didn’t have the strength to provide the necessary lift and support. They also didn’t last long in the application.
Then composite fillers, made of hard microspheres and a soft carrier gel, were developed. These fillers could provide the necessary lift, but their irregular texture could lead to unnatural looking results. Even when injected deeply, the irregular texture could feel unnatural, even painful.
Another solution tried was injections of Poly-L-lactic acid, a variation on the substance that makes your muscles ache when you work out too much. These injections irritated tissues in your cheek, causing them to produce more collagen. This treatment works, but it takes time to show results, and the results aren’t always predictable. Some people develop hard nodules related to these injections, and others have reported long-lasting pain.
Voluma XC also has the benefit of being completely reversible. With other injections, if you don’t like them, you have to live with them, sometimes for a long time. But with Voluma XC results can be immediately reversed with hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid.
