How is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC Different than Other Dermal Fillers?

With so many dermal filler formulations available today, it may feel somewhat confusing to determine how one differs from others. This can be especially true when there are multiple products in one family, as is the case with JUVÉDERM®. In this one product line, we have several different fillers. Voluma® XC is the densest. It has been designed with structure in mind. VOLUMA® XC is still based on the action of hyaluronic acid, but it is made using Vycross technology that customizes the ratio of low to high molecular weight HA particles. This gives VOLUMA® XC more structural capacity for enhancing facial contours without losing the natural feel of your facial tissue. Ultimately, VOLUMA® XC is not intended for lines and wrinkles; it's made specifically for goals like cheek or jawline contouring. 

Do Injections of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® Hurt?

We want you to feel great about the way you look after your injectable treatment, and we also want you to feel comfortable during your appointment. VOLUMA® XC is one of several dermal fillers that is formulated with a built-in numbing agent. With a bit of Lidocaine in the gel, this dermal filler achieves great results with very minimal discomfort. You can expect a tiny pinching sensation from the small needle your provider uses to administer your treatment. This is felt as a sensation, not as pain.

Can You Use JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® on Men?

Over time, men have come to realize that they, too, can benefit from non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. Injectables have become increasingly popular across a much broader range of patients than they used to be. Men can absolutely receive JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections, though they might do so for different goals. Where women more often seek this dermal filler treatment to augment the cheek area and restore curve and height to the cheekbones, men more often seek it for jawline contouring. To achieve the best, most natural-looking results, it's important that men seek out a provider that has considerable experience performing injectable treatments on the male face.

Can I Combine JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® with Other Treatments?

You can, and we can help you determine the right combination of treatments to achieve your ideal outcomes.  JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® is a unique injectable treatment designed for specific improvements. The addition of other injectables, whether other dermal fillers or neuromodulators, can beautifully restore a more youthful appearance. Injectable treatments are also nicely complemented by other forms of tissue rejuvenation. We offer several at our Sarasota dermatology office, including chemical peels, laser treatments, and more. 

What Can I Do to Avoid Bruising after Getting JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®?

Bruising is a common concern that patients have. Injectable treatments are conservative and are administered with a very small needle, so the risk of bruising is quite insignificant. That said, if you're generally prone to bruising or are worried about this potential side effect, you can decrease your chances of post-treatment side effects by avoiding alcohol consumption and the use of fish oils, aspirin, or NSAID medications for three days before your appointment. 


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face and can be used to fill and lift the mid-face and cheeks. Voluma® XC uses a cross-linking technology to bind the hyaluronic acid molecules, which produce the lift and fill needed for the mid face, and contributes to its long-lasting nature.
