Filled with confidence: Voluma XC injections in North County San Diego

A youthful face is widest at the cheekbones, tapering to the chin. When we are young, fat, hydration, and bone structure create this attractive balance. As we age, we lose facial volume which is especially noticeable in the apples of the cheeks. Planes of the face become more severe, and volume loss in the mid-face allows skin to sag at the mouth and jowls. Dr. Amanda Lloyd in Encinitas recommends Voluma XC injections to restore this lost volume . . . and self-assurance in a rejuvenated appearance.

Injecting confidence

Hyaluronic acid(HA) is found naturally in the skin. HA binds with water to both hydrate and volumize the skin.Hyaluronic acid is damaged by the sun and degrades with age, both contributing to the aged look. Voluma XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid formulated with Vycross technology to replace that lost hydration and volume. It is FDA-approved for deep injection into the cheek area, to boost volume.

What is Voluma?

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler made with Vycross® technology to provide support and structure to your skin.

What is Voluma used for?

Voluma is used to replace the volume that is lost in the cheeks and along the jawline.

Why do we need Voluma?

As we age we lose volume in our face, specifically the deep supporting structures get thinner. Therefore, we need to use something like Voluma to replace that structure.

How does Voluma work?

The Vycross technology used to create Voluma helps to provide that support and structure, as well as the longevity that we are looking for when we are replacing the volume in the face.

How to prepare for the treatment?

To prepare for your treatment with Voluma no actions are necessary. On your treatment day, you will arrive at the Skin & Vein Institute, in which we will bring you to the numbing room. You will numb for about 30-45 minutes and then you will be brought to your treatment room. Treatment with Voluma is virtually painless and there is little downtime afterwards.

What are the side effects of the treatment?

Rarely patients will experience minor swelling and occasionally a bruise. If a bruise does occur please notify the Skin & Vein Institute as soon as possible as we can treat the bruise with the laser resulting in resolutions within 72 hours.

Is Voluma safe and effective?

Voluma is both safe and effective at treating the volume loss of the face which results from aging and sun damage.
Dr. Lloyd is experienced in working with Voluma alone and in combination with other dermal fillers to provide a liquid facelift and achieve optimal natural-looking results.
