JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
One of the most prominent signs of aging isn’t wrinkles or other facial lines. It is the loss of volume, especially in the cheek area, which flattens out as the skin starts to droop and sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, offered by Austin, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Rocco Piazza, is a groundbreaking facial rejuvenation treatment. An injectable gel, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the first filler approved by the FDA specifically to restore volume to the cheeks.
At The Piazza Center, we believe that beautiful results are enhanced by leading a healthy lifestyle. Our aim is to help you achieve your cosmetic goals and desires. If you would like to find out more about JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, you can request a consultation online, or call our office at (512) 288-8200.
Your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC Procedure
Your appointment will begin by meeting with Dr. Piazza and our nurse injector Hayley before your treatment. After discussing your aesthetic goals, they will carefully create a treatment plan for your injections, including determining the depth of the injections.
You may not need anesthetic before the treatment because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is specially formulated with lidocaine to enhance comfort during the injections. Most patients experience only mild discomfort, but we can apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area if you wish. The gel is carefully injected in precise areas where it will restore lost volume. Treated areas are then massaged to smooth the gel into place. Injections are usually completed in about 15 minutes.
Dr. Piazza Answers Common Questions
What makes JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC different from other fillers?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is formulated using a process that gives it a special smooth-gel structure that will last longer than other dermal fillers. It is considered a next-generation filler and the only hyaluronic acid filler that is clinically proven to last up to 2 years after a single treatment.1
Am I a good candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC?
People who may not be ready for plastic surgery but are seeing early signs of aging are excellent candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injections. Non-surgical facial cosmetic procedures are popular because they are more affordable than surgery and require little to know downtime. During your consultation, Dr. Piazza evaluates your skin and makes recommendations about which skin procedures will work best for you.
Are there any side effects following JUVÉDERM VOLUMA injections?
Mild side effects may include some tenderness and swelling, bruising, and occasionally some redness that typically lasts less than a week. One of the ways to limit recovery time is by avoiding taking aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories in the week before your appointment. That will reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding.
Your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA Results
Patients can expect to see immediate changes following the injections, and they can return to their regular daily activities right away. Results improve as swelling and bruising dissipates. Results look very natural and can last up to 2 years.1
