As we age, our skin naturally begins to lose volume and wrinkle. However, you can restore a youthful appearance with dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC. This injectable treatment is designed to add volume to the cheeks, smoothing wrinkles and creating a fuller face. At Prestige Cosmetic Surgery, your treatment will be administered by Dr. Bernard Kopchinski. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kopchinski is exceptionally knowledgeable about maintaining balance amongst your features and creating the best possible results at his San Antonio, TX, practice.
A Safe, Effective Treatment
JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is a type of dermal filler which is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for enhancing the cheeks. Unlike many other fillers, it uses hyaluronic acid (HA) as opposed to collagen to restore volume to the face. Hyaluronic acid is naturally depleted as we age, often causing the mid-face to appear sunken, flat, and generally less defined.
At Prestige Cosmetic Surgery, your injectable treatment will be administered by our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Kopchinski.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Typically, JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is recommended for patients who are unhappy with a loss of volume in their cheeks. If you have more substantial or widespread concerns, such as deep wrinkles or sagging skin, Dr. Kopchinski may recommend facelift surgery or other procedure. Often, surgical and non-surgical treatments are combined to provide the most youthful, natural-looking results.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM Voluma XC
The most obvious benefit of JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is similar to other injectable treatments, in that it can help you achieve a more youthful appearance through non-surgical methods. The product also offers distinct advantages, including:
- Minimized Risk of Allergic Reaction
- Since the filler consists of a natural substance found in the body, you are at little to no risk of suffering an allergic reaction.
- Longer-Lasting Results
- When compared to collagen-based fillers and fat transfers, JUVÉDERM Voluma XC has been found to often provide longer-lasting results. Once injected, it can last up to two years in the cheeks.
- Little to No Discomfort
- JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is an exceptionally smooth gel-like consistency which allows it to be injected using a smaller needle. Additionally, the solution is mixed with the numbing agent called lidocaine to provide a more comfortable experience.
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and Dr. Kopchinski will perform a detailed evaluation to determine if JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is a fitting solution for you. Your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to him. As such, he will only recommend treatments that he feels will best help you achieve your goals.
What to Expect during Treatment
The treatment process itself is fairly straightforward. Dr. Kopchinski will personally inject the solution into the target area using careful precision to create the most flattering results. Dr. Kopchinski is an expert at administering injectable treatments with a gentle technique. Usually, your treatment will take about 30 minutes.
