Juvederm Voluma XC Minneapolis
Dr. Gregory T. Mesna is proud to offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC as part of his full spectrum of facial fillers. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel that is designed to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Injected directly where you need it, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can fill out your cheeks where they have lost volume and create a lifted, more youthful appearance. Because of its unique composition, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC lasts twice as long as other fillers – up to two years. To learn more about JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, contact our Minneapolis office today.
About JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is part of the JUVÉDERM® family of injectables. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed specifically to restore volume to your cheeks, where aging can create a drooping, sunken appearance. Injected deep within the tissue of the cheeks, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC plumps the skin, restoring a more youthful look.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is made from hyaluronic acid. After it has been injected, this material acts like a supportive structure beneath the skin. The chains that build the hyaluronic acid in JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC are cross-linked using a specialized technique, which means they maintain their structure much longer than other hyaluronic acid fillers.
In addition to hyaluronic acid, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC also contains lidocaine. Lidocaine creates a numbing effect, so JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections cause little to no discomfort. Treatment takes just minutes, leaving you free to continue with the rest of your day.
How JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC Works
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can effectively improve volume in all three areas of the cheeks: the apex, apple, and the hollow. With just a few strategically placed injections, you can enjoy instantaneous results.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC directly adds volume at each injection site. Once injected, it can be massaged and rubbed around in the cheeks to evenly distribute the gel. While it adds volume right away, it can take a few days for some side effects, which may include slight redness, bruising, or swelling, to dissipate.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC Candidates
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an ideal treatment for male and female patients in their 30s and older who have begun to notice a sunken-in or deflated appearance as they have aged. It is great for patients who feel they have lost definition in their cheekbones, as well.
Because it is a minimally invasive treatment, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC may not be recommended for patients who have substantial sagging in their cheeks, jowls, and other areas of their faces. It is designed to add targeted, subtle lifting rather than create a dramatic difference in your appearance. If you have substantial sagging, you may want to consider a face lift for more comprehensive results.
Many patients choose to receive JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC along with their JUVÉDERM® injections, which are intended to improve deep lines and wrinkles that surround your nose and mouth. To learn more about JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC and Mesna Plastic Surgery, contact our office today.
