Juvéderm Voluma® XC
in Fargo, North Dakota
The process of aging occurs because of volume loss underneath the skin, resulting in a facial profile that sags and loses its definition. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is an injectable option that can restore volume in the cheeks, boosting your look and providing subtle lift.
Juvéderm is a family of facial fillers that are made of specifically-formulated, cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Each injectable addresses a unique area of the face that is commonly affected by age-related midface volume loss. Voluma XC specifically produces subtle lift to the cheeks through a deep, long-lasting injection. ‘XC’ means that it contains lidocaine, a common anesthetic, for additional comfort during injection.
I've been going to Dr Ness for 5 years. I have a family history of melanoma and she takes great care of me. As an extra bonus, I started using her skin care products a few months ago and my skin looks better than it has in years!
Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein found in the skin that provides moisture and elasticity. In a purified, cross-linked form, it can act to replace lost collagen and elastin that form a matrix under the skin which is lost over time. Voluma XC is specifically formulated with larger molecules in order to stay in place and last longer in the cheeks through a deep injection. This injectable option can be administered in our Fargo office during a simple treatment session. Depending on your goals and anatomy, this process can take as little as fifteen minutes. If your tolerance for injections is low, we can supply a topical numbing cream for your comfort.
After injection, it can be helpful to massage the treatment area in order to help disperse the product. You can expect some slight swelling and redness afterward, but this subsides quickly. You’ll see results immediately after the injection process. Voluma XC is specifically formulated to last for up to two years, after which you can opt for another treatment. Dermal fillers work best in tandem with a regimen of professional skin care treatments and at-home products. Dr. Ness can recommend the best in both during a consultation at our Fargo office.
Injectable and other cosmetic treatments can be a great way to boost your look and your confidence. To meet with our expert injectors and discuss your options, contact our office by calling or scheduling your appointment online.
Can Sculptra and Voluma be used together?
Many fillers can be used together, but we do not recommend injecting Sculptra and Volume on the same day.
Can Voluma move around?
After Juvederm Voluma injections, we recommend avoiding manipulation to the treatment area including sleeping on your side or stomach for 24 hours post-treatment to prevent dispersing the product. After this short period of time, the product will not move.
