What is Juvéderm Voluma XC?
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only dermal filler to be approved by the FDA to add a subtle but significant lift to the cheek area. The increase in cheek volume provides Voluma users with a more youthful and supple aesthetic appearance. After your initial Voluma treatment, you will be able to return to high-impact physical activity after 24 hours. In patients over the age of 21, Voluma lasts about 2 years.
How is Juvéderm Voluma XC different from Juvéderm XC?
Juvéderm Voluma XC and Juvéderm XC are both hyaluronic acids that occur naturally within the skin to keep it hydrated. As we age, we lose hyaluronic acids which result in the skin losing volume and structure.
While Juvéderm XC is primarily intended for smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose areas, Juvéderm Voluma XC is primarily concerned with adding volume to the cheek area. Additionally, while the results of Juvéderm XC last up to a year, the outcomes of Juvéderm XC have been clinically proven to last up to two years.

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of fillers do you use?
Here at CARE, we offer Juvederm fillers because we consider them to be the gold standard in both efficacy and predictability. All Juvederm fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that our bodies naturally produce. Because it is found naturally in our bodies, it is slowly absorbed by the body over time and the risk of rejection is lower overall. These fillers also contain lidocaine, allowing treatment to be much more comfortable during the injection. Some of our most popular fillers include Juvederm Ultra XC, Voluma, and Volbella.
What is a dermal filler?
Dermal fillers are typically made out of hyaluronic acid gel and include products such as Juvederm and Sculptura. Unlike Botox, fillers work by adding volume to the face. This can either serve to plump the lips or fill in unwanted wrinkles.
Do filler injections hurt?
Filler procedures include lidocaine, a common anesthetic, to help minimize any pain. Most patients feel pressure or a small pinch while receiving injections. Some choose to ice the area after treatment as well, but overall there is little pain involved if any.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 4-24 months.
When will I notice results of filler treatment?
Filler results are immediate and continue to improve for 2-4 weeks following the procedure.
How close to a big event can I get fillers?
While dermal filler results are immediate and recovery time is minimal, its common to experience bruising or swelling after injection. Allow about two weeks between your filler treatment and a big event for best results.
Can I get dermal fillers in combination with other injectables?
Patients describe Botox injections as a little snap or pinch at the injection site. While some clients are more sensitive than others nearly all clients tolerate the treatment well.
What are common areas to treat with filler?
A: Common treatment areas include cheeks and fine lines surrounding the nose and mouth. Many patients also like to address their chin or lips with filler to address a more balanced profile view.
How long does it take for Juvederm filler to settle?
It can take several weeks for your Juvederm filler to completely settle and integrate into the surrounding tissues. Typically, most patients will find it takes approximately 4 weeks for the injected filler to fully settle.
How long does it take to recover from Juvederm?
Most of our patients find that any side effects, such as swelling or bruising, resolve within 7-14 days of initial injection. However, it is important to note that swelling and bruising can persist longer depending on the patient.
