Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation; volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason people lose their youthful profile over the years. Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable gel is for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. Voluma is the first and only filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to instantly add volume, provide a subtle lift, help to restore contour for up to 2 years, and make patients look up to 5 years younger look with a single treatment. Voluma contains a modified hyaluronic acid (HA), derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar. This nonsurgical treatment can be done at both the Lubbock and Midland offices of The Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute by Dr. Schmid or Dr. Mooty in one of our comfortable MedSpa suites. Voluma is injected under the skin with a small needle and works instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area, temporarily reversing the sign of aging. To reduce pain during the procedure, Juvéderm Voluma XC contains a numbing agent called lidocaine.

What to Expect
Using a think syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.
The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
