Voluma XC, from the Juvéderm family of injectables, is a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) to add lift and volume to treated areas of the face. At Surface Skin Spa in Plano, TX, Voluma is used on patients over 21 to restore volume in the apices, apples, and hollows of the cheeks, as well as fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Voluma corrects the natural loss of volume and elasticity caused by aging to provide a more youthful appearance to the patient's face and profile.
What to Expect
Using a syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into 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.
Voluma is more expensive than other injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, because the results last longer. The cost of a Voluma treatment varies, depending on the amount of filler used. Voluma cost $900 per syringe.

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 metabolizes the filler.
