Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about Voluma XC

When can I resume normal activities after my treatment?

No exercise, major manipulation of facial expressions, or makeup during the day of treatment is highly recommended. After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities.

How long is the Juvéderm Voluma treatment?

The average treatment with any of these products takes about 30 minutes. However, this may vary depending on the amount or type of correction you are seeking. Although most clients find the injections to be relatively painless, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the area prior to receiving your treatment, which may add to your time in clinic.

How long does Juvéderm Voluma last?

Since Juvéderm Voluma is a larger molecule size than Juvéderm XC, results can last up to 2 years.

What is the difference between Juvéderm and Juvéderm Voluma?

The difference between regular Juvéderm fillers and Juvéderm Voluma is the molecular weight of the hyaluronic acid. Juvéderm is used to restore volume in the cheek area, whereas Juvéderm is used to “fill out” and smooth fine lines and wrinkles and add shape and volume to the lips. Juvéderm Voluma also can last up to 2 years, whereas Juvéderm results may last 6-12 months depending on the area injected and amount of product used.

Can I combine Juvéderm and Botox treatments?

Botox treatment, or any other neurotoxin treatment, can be combined with Juvéderm Voluma or Juvéderm at the same appointment. Using both products helps most clients achieve their ideal result and may provide longer-lasting results.

What are my options if I am allergic to lidocaine?

Products that do not contain lidocaine are available. Allergies will be noted during your initial consultation.

When should I plan the treatment for ideal results?

It is recommended that you receive treatment 2-4 weeks before you want/need the results for a specific event on your calendar.

Will I bruise post treatment?

You can reduce risks of bruising and swelling if Tylenol or Ibuprofen is stopped 72 hours prior to treatment. Bruising may vary and can last 3-10 days.
