Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler cleared by the FDA to restore volume loss in the cheeks. With age, volume loss in the mid-face causes the cheeks to flatten and sag. By injecting Juvederm Voluma XC under the skin with a small needle, the cheek area can be subtly lifted, temporarily reversing this sign of aging.
About JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Rather than spot-treating individual wrinkles and filling them, we can now take a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation by minimizing the signs of aging in the midface first, and filling residual wrinkles later. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC works with its sister product, JUVÉDERM®, to produce more complete results. At Boston Medical Aesthetics, we are delighted to offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC as part of our anti-aging treatments.
The subtle lift achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can make a dramatic difference. The best part is that JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC provides lift that’s instant and long lasting – with results that can last up to 2 years. Patients surveyed in clinical trials reported feeling that they looked up to 5 years younger.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
Age-related changes to the midface occur because of fat, bone, and muscle loss. The loss of these youthful structures in the face creates a thin, hollowed appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC combats lost volume by plumping the midface, chin, and cheekbones.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has a thicker consistency than the original JUVÉDERM®, which makes it ideal for facial contouring. It is designed to be placed on top of facial bones – such as the cheekbones or chin – to add volume, lift, and fullness.

Who Can Have JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an excellent option for people who want to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. It’s also effective for people who want to recontour their jawline or chin. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is meant to be placed close to the bone, it’s not recommended for areas like the lips or under the eyes.
Our practice may recommend JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC if you:
Are noticing that your face appears thinner and hollower
Want to create more noticeable cheekbones or enhance your jawline or chin
Desire fuller, more rounded facial contours
Would like to look younger without surgery
Want to soften the look of facial creases around the nose and mouth
Desire a more lifted appearance
At Boston Medical Aesthetics, our board-certified nurse practitioner Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, performs dermal filler injections at our Boston office. Jennifer has in-depth training and experience using JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, and is known for her aesthetic eye and natural-looking results. She’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that best addresses your needs and cosmetic goals.
Your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC Treatment
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections are considered “lunchtime” procedures because the treatment can be performed in 30 minutes or less and requires no downtime. There’s no preparation needed before your appointment. However, we do recommend that you avoid blood thinning medications for 1 – 2 weeks before your injections. This helps reduce the risk of bruising.
Just before your procedure, ice is applied to the treatment areas to minimize discomfort, swelling, and bruising. A topical numbing cream is also available. However, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC contains lidocaine – a numbing agent – so many people don’t require additional pain relief.
During treatment, Jennifer will use a thin needle to place JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC in areas of facial hollowing. She will gently press the filler into your skin to sculpt a more youthful face shape. This will take only a few minutes and most people are very comfortable during this process. The results are visible instantly, and Jennifer will provide you with a mirror so that you can watch your new facial contours take shape.
Once your procedure is complete, you can return to your normal daily activities. Your skin may appear red, swollen, or slightly bruised for a day or 2 after your injections. However, these side effects are mild and resolve quickly.
In about 3 – 5 days, most swelling and bruising should be gone, and you should see your final results. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a thicker formula, it is very long-lasting – often as long as 1 or 2 years.
