Dr. Thompson has been injecting patients with Juvederm Voluma XC for over a year now with great results and patient satisfaction. Voluma XC is the first injectable dermal filler specifically designed for the mid-face to correct age-related loss of facial volume for patients over the age of 21.
As part of the aging process, volume in the mid-face can diminish causing the cheeks to sag and hollowed-out. Patients begin to feel that they look more tired than they actually feel due to the drawn appearance that results from facial volume loss. Juvederm Voluma XC works well to restore lost volume and lift the cheek area to a more youthful state. This often helps smooth the nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth) as well.
Developed by Allergan, the maker of Botox and Juvederm, Voluma XC is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin. Dr. Thompson injects Voluma with a small needle to the main areas of the cheek with even distribution. He sculpts the product around the cheeks according to your specific goals and desired outcome.
A Voluma XC treatment typically takes around 20 – 30 minutes and can be done at any of our locations in Layton, Bountiful, or Draper. Patients typically arrive early for topical numbing to help ease any pain and discomfort they may experience with treatment. Patients may experience some slight redness and swelling at the injection site but typically return to regular activity right away.
Thompson Facial Plastics offers a variety of injectables including Botox, Artefill, Radiesse, Juvederm, and many others.
