JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
When people think of anti-aging treatments, wrinkles are usually the first thing that comes to mind. Recently, though, more cosmetic specialists have come to realize the important role of volume. As we age, certain areas of our faces, namely the cheeks, start to lose volume and look flat or sunken. One of the best tools we now have for fighting that volume loss is an injectable filler called JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC. At CaloSpa in Louisville and Lexington, KY, a simple, non-surgical treatment with this FDA-approved product can restore a youthful plumpness and a look of vitality.
To get started with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC you can request a spa consultation online or call our Louisville location at (502) 814-3000 or our Lexington location at (859) 269-2256.

How JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC Works
Like its sister product, JUVÉDERM®, which is for the lips and nasolabial folds, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a dermal filler that is injected to boost volume. VOLUMA XC, though, is specifically designed and formulated for the cheeks. It has large molecules of a natural volumizer called hyaluronic acid, meant to cover a wider area with deeper injections than past fillers.
The smooth gel is also packed with crosslinks to help it last longer – up to 2 years, according to Allergan, the product's maker. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC can be injected in 3 regions of the cheeks, and it can also be combined with other treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, for a comprehensive rejuvenation. This combination procedure that incorporates other injectables is often called a "non-surgical facelift" by our Louisville and Lexington patients who would rather avoid surgery.
Your Procedure & Recovery
At CaloSpa, a single session with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is usually all that's needed for a noticeable rejuvenation. Dr. M. Bradley Calobrace, Dr. Nana N. Mizuguchi, and 2 of our nurse injectors, Tina Carroll and Susanne Ramsey, were among a select group chosen by Allergan to serve as trainers for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, meaning they are certified to teach other medical professionals how to properly administer it.
During your treatment, which should take less than 30 minutes, we can use a topical anesthetic applied before your injections if you wish. However, since JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC includes an anesthetic called lidocaine, most people experience only mild discomfort.
The results of your treatment will be visible instantly, and may last up to 2 years. Most of our Louisville and Lexington patients who get JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injections feel comfortable returning to work or their regular activities immediately, although some swelling, bruising, and redness may be present. These side effects are usually mild and easily covered with makeup, and they typically last only a few days (up to 2 to 4 weeks). Most people are excited about the dramatic difference this simple treatment can make and feel they look significantly younger.
