Hedden Plastic Surgery Offers Juvéderm Voluma XC
The selection of volume-enhancing dermal fillers available at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Spa Greystone now include Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable gel, the latest member of the Juvéderm family of fillers. This new product is ideal for patients in the Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama area who want to create a more youthful profile by countering lost volume in the cheek area.
Cheeks can lose their youthful curve with age
Youthful cheeks are commonly shaped like an “ogee curve,” which is a double curve in the shape of an elongated S. When the cheeks lose volume with age, this curve can flatten as the cheeks begin to sag.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved filler for correcting age-related volume loss in the cheek area for adults over 21. Since wrinkles are not the only signs of aging, replacing lost cheek volume helps to restore a more youthful profile. Clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment, Juvéderm Voluma XC temporarily reverses the signs of aging with a subtle lift in the cheek area that’s instant and natural looking.
Juvéderm Voluma XC contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally produced by the body that gives the skin volume and fullness. To reduce pain as the filler is injected under the skin with a small needle, Voluma XC contains lidocaine to numb the treated area. Following treatment, normal activities can usually be resumed after 24 hours.

Juvéderm Voluma XC vs. Juvéderm XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC is a newer product that works on a different part of the face than Juvéderm XC. While Voluma XC adds volume to the cheeks, Juvéderm XC temporarily corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. These are the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, also known as “smile lines” or “parentheses”.
