Age related flattening of skin, with effects more pronounced in the cheek areas is a hallmark sign of ageing. It happens due to depletion of hyaluronic acid which is found in between cells and is responsible for keeping the skin firm with a youthful look.
Juvederma Voluma XC
Juvederma is the first and the only injectable gel that has been approved by the US FDA for use in boosting skin volume. Your face derives its beauty and youthfulness primarily from the volume without which fine lines become more apparent.
It can be helpful for all adult over the age of 21, who want to restore the volume of their skin for a smoother contour and younger look. It is far superior than surgical options for face lift and those involving fat transplant from other areas of the body like thighs, in that it is easy to perform, doent have any complications and has longer lasting effects.
Formulation and Mode of Action
Juvederma Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid filler synthesised through a process called Vycross technology which efficiently helps in the formation of large chains of hyaluronic acid by cross linking them.
- The cross linking lends an excellent filling capacity to Voluma. It prevents its degradation and offers longevity of up to 2 years.
- It can be moulded or shaped to achieve the desired contour.
- There is also lidocaine which minimizes patient discomfort.
Some patients might additionally be given topical anaesthetics or ice can be applied to reduce discomfort. It is a virtually painless procedure which works by restoring the hyaluronic acid of the skin resulting in instant plumping up and restoration of your youthfulness taking atleast 5 years off your age.
Administration of Voluma XC
Juvederma Voluma XC is primarily designed for improving cheek volume. A fine needle is used to target the sunken areas. The gel is injected deep into the subcutaneous tissue taking for cheek augmentation. Our trained dermatologists take care not to inject it into blood vessels which can be very dangerous.

There might be redness, tenderness and mild swelling to a certain degree but they can go down very quickly. It is also suggested that certain medications like aspirin be avoided for a few days after the treatment.
