If you are considering nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, injectable fillers can often provide excellent results with little to no downtime. Newly-approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the latest dermal filler to be offered by Dr. Schwartz at our plastic surgery practice. As such, Cheryl McPherson, RN, our experienced nurse injector and Allergan-certified speaker, recently answered a few questions regarding the unique benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, and what distinguishes it from other injectable treatments.
What are the main distinctions between JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC and other JUVÉDERM™ products?
Cheryl: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC works to create a smoother contour and more youthful appearance. What differentiates this treatment from other JUVÉDERM™ products is its lift capacity and duration of benefits experienced (up to two years with optimal treatment).
What are key differences between JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC and other, similar injectables?
Cheryl: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the only FDA-approved filler for volume loss in the midface. Its formulation technology produces a tightly cross-linked gel which contributes to its lift capacity, and typically results in less swelling and quicker results. Additionally, it can be longer-lasting than other options. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is made with a hyaluronic acid, which makes it a reversible treatment, unlike many other injectables.
What are the chief benefits of this treatment?
Cheryl: It can lift the cheek area with instant, long-lasting volume for correction of age-related, midface volume loss.
How long does it take for optimal results to appear?
Cheryl: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is designed to lift the cheek area immediately following treatment.
Cheryl recently became certified by Allergan to speak to others about their line of products, including JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC. If you have any other questions about JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, or if you would like to schedule a consultation at our office, please contact us today.
