Wake Forest Juvéderm & VOLUMA XC

When it comes to non-surgical facial rejuvenation, Juvéderm is one of our most highly sought-after treatments, and for good reason. This popular FDA approved injectable filler can deliver beautiful results, softening creases in the lower face and restoring youthful volume to facial features. Our experienced MedSpa aestheticians offer two Juvéderm filler options to fulfill a variety of anti-aging goals: Juvéderm & Juvéderm VOLUMA XC.

How Juvéderm works to smooth facial wrinkles

As we age, our skin becomes less elastic. At the same time underlying facial tissues lose volume. Wrinkles and creases begin to form around the nose and mouth as the skin is less able to contract to the thinning facial tissues. By injecting Juvéderm gel beneath the skin where wrinkles occur, we can restore lost volume, elevating the skin to diminish bothersome marionette lines, laugh lines, parentheses, nasolabial folds and more.

Juvéderm gel is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring particle that already exists in our skin. Its soft, smooth consistency feels very natural beneath the skin, and an experienced injector can create remarkably natural looking results. Juvéderm’s anti-aging effects are immediate and can last up to 1 year.

Juvéderm injections require no downtime, and side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, and soreness at the injection site heals are typically mild and resolve within 1 to 2 weeks. Your body safely and gradually absorbs the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm over time.

How Juvéderm VOLUMA XC can lift & volumize cheeks

Facial aging is not limited to wrinkles. Loss of facial volume around the cheekbones and mid-face can cause a tired, aged appearance. Juvéderm VOLUMA XC uses a special formula that allows it to be injected more deeply beneath the skin. This makes it a great option for enhancing the cheeks, as it plumps the tissue and provides a subtle lift to help you look more youthful and better refreshed.

Juvéderm VOLUMA XC was the first filler FDA approved specifically for restoring volume to the cheeks. Treatment is quick—no more than 30 minutes—and results are noticeable after just one treatment. Just like any Juvéderm injectable treatment, no downtime is needed after VOLUMA XC, and side effects are usually mild and temporary.

The best part—results can last up to 2 years. While Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is not a substitute for a facelift, it can be an excellent temporary, yet long-lasting option to address early signs of facial aging and refresh your appearance without surgery.
