How long does Juvederm Voluma XC last?
Depletion of facial volume and mid-face skin thinning can occur due to heredity, aging, sickness, sun exposure and various other reasons. Juvederm Volume XC is an efficient and non cosmetic surgery treatment that can help regain lost facial volume. The FDA has approved Juvederm Voluma for cheek volumizing.
During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain the advantages and drawbacks of Juvederm Voluma XC as well as discuss the expected longevity of the outcome.

Sustainability of Results
Hyaluronic acid is bio-compatible and forms the vital ingredient in Juvederm Voluma XC injectable gel. Many dermal filler treatments are composed of HA, but Voluma has this acid in a higher concentration. Further, the firm cross-linkage of molecules in Voluma offers relatively longer lasting outcomes.
Juvederm Voluma XC can provide results for up to two years, and even more in certain instances. Comparatively, other dermal filler injectables only provide results for between six months and a year.
A research study on Juvederm Voluma XC to determine the sustainability and efficiency of the gel showed that after two years, patients treated with six syringes of this filler were still pleased with the results. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Jones will address all the questions the patient may have about the longevity and other aspects of the treatment.
Juvederm Voluma XC dermal filler treatment is known to have relatively long lasting results, but it is important to understand that different patients can experience varying outcomes. Many variables impact how long the results will sustain in every case.
Factors such as facial activity level, metabolism, area where the injections are administered, strength of facial tissue and muscle, and depth of the injections can differ for each patient. Certain patients experience significant cheek volume loss which requires more units of the dermal filler. The amount of gel administered to each patient will also determine longevity.
Juvederm Voluma XC produces cosmetically appealing, satisfying and long lasting outcomes for almost all patients. A majority of the patients enjoy outcomes lasting between one and two years contingent on various factors such as how a patient’s skin responds to the procedure. Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Jones provides this filler treatment to appropriate candidates.
Robust Cross-linking of the Gel
While HA is commonly included in many dermal fillers, the cross linking of the gel molecules varies in each case and affects the sustainability of the outcomes. Some experts highlight the strength of Juvederm Voluma dermal filler by using an example of balls of yarn.
A ball of yarn that is tightly wound up will take more time to open up compared to one that is loosely wound. This is similar to how the firm cross-linkage of molecules in Juvederm Voluma XC enables the gel to stay longer in the deep tissue and disintegrate slowly.
