WHAT IS JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC INJECTABLE GEL?

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area. *

Dr. Blume was one of only 125 physicians nationwide to receive the product early and use it on models. Now available to his patients, Dr. Blume is very pleased with the results he is achieving with this innovative new product which he is using to enhance the Blume Liquid Face Lift. Using his years of experience as an injector and instructor for Allergan, the maker of Botox®, Juvéderm and now, Juvéderm Voluma, Dr. Blume will be using Juvéderm Voluma to create a smooth, natural-looking non-surgical cheek lift.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Juvéderm Voluma?

A Hyaluronic acid that is expanded to add longevity to the product life through cross-linking the molecule. This makes it last longer and appear smoother. Because it has a different combination of hyaluronic acids, it is more concentrated, lasts longer, and causes a “lift” of the facial skin and muscles.*

Does it cause allergic reactions?

Because Hyaluronic acid is part of the makeup of our skin, there is little or no chance or allergic reactions. If you are allergic to lidocaine, you may need to use a hyaluronic dermal filler that does not contain lidocaine.*

What are the possible side effects?

Most of the side effects of all dermal fillers are limited to a short time and resolve quickly. They include swelling, bruising, and redness. Sometimes you can develop lumpiness, frequently caused by poor injection technique. This can be fixed easily through small injections of Hyaluronidase which melts the product injected and in the right hands works wonders. Other side effects are rare and can be fixed as well.*

Where is Juvéderm Voluma injected?

Voluma is injected along the cheeks and mid-face, that area which loses fullness due to gravity and skin changes. Because of its higher concentration of Hyaluronic acid and the ability for the molecules to stick together, it is used more for facial lifting than filling of skin folds.

Where is Juvéderm Voluma contraindicated, or not supposed to be injected?

Voluma is never supposed to be used for lip injections or under the eyes. It is too thick and concentrated for those areas.
