Juvéderm VOLUMA XC in Novato, California
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is a dermal filler specifically designed to rejuvenate the midface region. It is a FDA-approved filler composed of hyaluronic acid – a common sugar found in our body. The main functions of Juvéderm VOLUMA XC are to add volume to the cheeks and lift sagging skin which is commonly caused by aging.
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC uses the great qualities of hyaluronic acid which is a substance that is present in many types of dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is suitable for the body due to the fact that it is a sugar (polysaccharide) that is naturally present in certain parts of our body such as the skin and joints. Thus, it is safe for injection and produces great results. It also acts as a skin care agent by keeping the skin moisturized from inside.

Benefits of VOLUMA XC
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC works best on the midface area. Compared to other fillers, it is injected much deeper into the skin to enhance the volume of the cheeks and produce better contours. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. and our Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, Ariel Kirk, RN, use Juvéderm VOLUMA XC to treat asymmetrical cheeks in order to provide more balance to the face and bring an overall consistency. This filler has also been proven to work for chin augmentation. It can add more definition to the chin as well as reduce the sagginess.
One of the best things about Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is that the results can be seen immediately after the procedure. Results are known to last as long as two years which makes this procedure a cost-effective choice. Like other injectable facial fillers, Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is a non-surgical procedure and can be performed quickly. A typical treatment with Juvéderm VOLUMA XC takes only about 30-45 minutes from start to finish, so you can immediately get back to your daily activities.
How is Juvederm VOLUMA XC Different From Other Fillers?
A major difference between Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is in their composition. While they are both made of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm VOLUMA XC’s gel is thicker than Juvéderm XC and is most suited for deep injection on the skin of the cheeks. Juvéderm XC, on the other hand, is composed of softer and finer gel and works better on the areas surrounding the mouth as well as the lips. Juvéderm XC is also better in removing the wrinkles and creases in these areas such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Although both are similar in nature, they are not alternatives for each other.
Undoubtedly, Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is a great non-surgical and minimally invasive option when it comes to revitalizing the cheeks. So, candidates who are averse to surgery or anesthesia can opt for Juvéderm VOLUMA XC. Moreover, ideal candidates also include those individuals who have undefined cheek structure because of their underlying cheekbones. Lastly, this filler is most commonly used to recuperate loss of volume and elasticity of the midface region and, in some cases, the chin.
