Juvederm Ultra XC® / Voluma XC®
Juvederm is a product that I use to soften facial wrinkles and folds. It is a gel that is pliable – easy to shape and mold. The results often give my patients a sense of regaining a more vital appearance. – Dr. Hernandez
Juvederm XC®, an injectable used regularly by Dr. Hernandez
Over the past few years, Dr. Hernandez has routinely recommended and used Juvederm to treat a variety of facial areas. Juvederm works well to smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It is a versatile dermal filler that can be used all over the face, from frown lines to nasolabial folds, in lip augmentations, and in jawline corrections.
Today, Juvederm XC is one of the most popular and highly regarded injectable fillers on the market. In recent years, the Juvederm family of products has been developed and expanded to now include Juvederm Voluma XC, alongside the well-known Juvederm Ultra XC.
The letters “XC” refer to the addition of lidocaine in the syringe, making the injection more comfortable for the patient.
Juvederm XC is a smooth gel enriched with hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar in the body. Hyaluronic acid retains vital hydrates that give our skin volume. Juvederm XC can return some of that lost volume and vital hydration to the skin.
In the hands of an experienced surgeon like Dr. Hernandez, it is easily injected under the skin using a fine needle, then molded and shaped to the contour of the face.
The versatility of Juvederm Ultra XC®
Juvederm is a versatile injectable and can be used to soften and smooth lines and wrinkles in many areas of the face. With Juvederm, I gently make the injection, and then mold it within the targeted facial areas, like the small lines so often found around the lips. I also inject it in the nasolabial folds, as well as in fine lines that radiate out from the corners of the mouth, Dr. Hernandez explains.
The versatility of Juvederm XC makes it ideal for correcting irregularities in the nose and glabella (the skin between the nose and eyebrows), thus helping to eliminate those two vertical brow marks often called the “11’s.”
“When the temples begin to hollow, resulting from a natural loss of volume, I frequently recommend Juvederm to fill in that hollowness. Juvederm can replace the cushion of the temple’s natural fat pad that diminishes over time. Furthermore, it is also effective when injected along the jawline to restore lost volume and smoothness,” says Dr. Hernandez.
Juvederm XC’s versatility has been proven time and again to soften the lines of aging and return the face to a smoother, more natural appearance. The beneficial results of a Juvederm injection can last up to a year.
Proven effective for the cheek area, Juvederm Voluma XC®
“Since its introduction, I have found Juvederm Voluma XC to be a most effective filler in restoring the cheek area. Also enhanced with lidocaine in the syringe, Voluma is enriched with hyaluronic acid. It is a thick gel that is injected deep into the tissues. It is one of only a few products specifically approved by the FDA for deep injection into the cheeks,” Dr. Hernandez says.
When performing an injection of Voluma XC, I am able to gently shape the cheek and plump it up. I am always aesthetically conscious of the cheeks’ natural loss of volume. The deeper injection of Voluma enables me to achieve a fuller restoration of that lost volume. Voluma is a valuable aesthetic treatment, and I am pleased to include it in my portfolio of injectables as I seek to restore volume to the cheeks and return some of that natural contour and robust vitality to the face. – Dr. Hernandez
Juvederm Voluma XC softens the signs of aging and returns the cheeks to a smoother, fresher appearance. Results of Juvederm Voluma XC injections can last up to two years.
