WHAT TO EXPECT
The injection site will be properly cleaned and prepped before Voluma® XC is injected. The doctor will use a thin needle to inject the appropriate amount of filler into the apples of the cheeks until the desired fullness is achieved. The doctor may massage the area to make sure the product is evenly distributed.
After Voluma®, a patient may experience swelling, tenderness, firmness, or the appearance of lumps/bumps in the treatment site. Patients can expect the side effects to last 2 – 4 weeks. Patients wishing more fullness may choose to receive a touch-up treatment about 1 month after the initial treatment to obtain desired goals. Results should last for a year and after then, additional treatments may be needed.
