What Is Juvéderm Voluma® XC?

As we age, our face loses youthful volume, especially in the midface and cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is an injectable dermal filler meant to add volume to the cheeks for a more youthful appearance. As the first and only hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to increase volume in the midface, Juvéderm Voluma® XC is a safe and effective option to combat volume loss.

How Does Juvéderm Voluma® XC Work?

Our bodies are comprised of many cells, with hyaluronic acid living between them, keeping our skin looking firm and youthful. As we age, these hyaluronic acid levels are slowly depleted, causing lines, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is injected into the midface area to restore hyaluronic acid levels.

During treatment, Dr. Erella will inject Voluma® XC using a very thin needle. Because this filler is formulated with Lidocaine, a type of anesthetic, treatment is virtually painless. The procedure is non-invasive and quick, typically taking 10-15 minutes to perform.


Following a Juvéderm Voluma® XC treatment, patients may experience mild redness, bruising and swelling. These side effects are temporary and should resolve with time. There is minimal to no recovery time associated, with the majority of patients returning to their everyday routines right away. Individual results will vary for each patient, so talk to Dr. Erella about any questions you might have.
