Juvederm Voluma XC Bluffton

Juvederm Voluma™ XC SavannahJuvederm Voluma XC is an injectable filler created for the purpose of rejuvenating the face without surgery. When injected into the sub dermis of the cheeks and midface, the natural fat pads that seem to have vanished over time are replaced by the long-lasting product. Juvederm Voluma is able to deliver a natural-looking lift to the face because of the sculptable smooth gel hyaluronic acid that has been cross-linked with Vycross technology for optimal results. At LUX~A Medical Spa, Susan Coker, PA-C, Frederick Weniger, MD, and Carmen Traywick, MD delivers the injections using her advanced training in injectable filler techniques.

Hyaluronic acid is vital to the hydration of the skin. It is naturally occurring in the human body, but begins to decrease with age. Combined with collagen loss, the skin all around the body, including the cheeks, begins to experience a breakdown in its structure. The fat pads that once gave the cheeks their youthful fullness and refined appearance lose volume. The hollows of the midface become deeper and the skin shows sign of wrinkling. Juvederm Voluma compensates for the loss of hyaluronic acid and fills out the sagging areas while rehydrating the skin.

The products and services mentioned on this page are offered by LUX~Medical Spa, which is co-owned by Frederick G. Weniger, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Patients aged 35 to 65 who have lost volume in the midface and desire to restore a more youthful look without surgery are considered the best candidates for Juvederm Voluma injections. The procedure is performed in the office of LUX~A Medical Spa in about 30 minutes. Advanced injection techniques and the presence of lidocaine in the solution eliminate the need for anesthesia. However, topical and local anesthesia’s are offered to patients who prefer them. No allergy testing is necessary prior to receiving Juvederm Voluma.

The results of the treatment are visible immediately following injection. There is no downtime associated with the procedure. Patients may return to work and their normal routines right away, but it is advised that more strenuous activities, such as exercise, be temporarily avoided for 24 hours. Correction of volume loss in the cheeks and smoothing of the skin in the midface can be expected to continue for up to 2 years before additional treatment is required.

Mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site are common side effects and generally fade within one day. Complications from the administration of injectable fillers are extremely rare. Granulomas and skin necrosis are possible risks associated with Juvederm Voluma and other injectables.
