Voluma™ XC

Voluma™ XC is used by both men and women today to add instant volume to the apex, apple and hollow of the cheek area, and is clinically proven to last up to two years with very minimal downtime. While it is mainly made out of hyaluronic acid, like Juvederm® XC, Voluma™ XC is modified to give more of a subtle lifting result, restoring volume back to the cheek area. This is a great non-surgical option if you’re looking for a subtle change in regaining a youthful appearance.

A Voluma™ XC procedure begins with the application of a topical Lidocaine-based cream to the numb the areas for ten to fifteen minutes, followed by a thorough cleansing and prepping of the target area. This cosmetic procedure may require multiple injections and takes anywhere from thirty to forty minutes. As with any injectable procedure, there is a chance of bruising, and all patients are giving a cooling agent immediately following the procedure to decrease swelling. There may be some mild redness and swelling at the injection site, and we suggest a full week to see optimal results.

The cost of Voluma™ XC is dependent on the number of syringes used at the time of the treatment. Your provider will discuss the suggested number of syringes for optimal treatment results as well as a cost estimate beforehand. Voluma™ XC is developed by Allergan and eligible for credit towards Brilliant Distinctions. Many Wilmington Dermatology Center patients opt in to our free program, Brilliant Distinctions, to receive credit for each treatment. This credit can be applied toward your favorite Skin Medica product purchases of future treatments at Wilmington Dermatology Center.

We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our free consultation to determine if Voluma™ XC is right for you.
