What is Voluma?
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is the first and only injectable gel approved by the FDA for the cheek area. This new injectable instantly adds volume, provides a subtle lift, and restores contour for a more youthful profile. This makes Voluma XC is an important product for the injectors at Utah Facial Plastics to provide for instant facial rejuvenation.
How does Juvéderm Voluma XC work?
Voluma XC is injected under the skin with a small needle, working instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area (see 3 treatment areas of the cheek below). The effects of volumization temporarily reverse the sign of aging.Numbing cream is applied prior to treatment and the product itself contains a numbing agent, called lidocaine, for minimal discomfort during the treatment.
The more youthful profile you can achieve from the procedure lasts up to 2 years with optimal treatment.

The Utah Facial Plastics Difference
As a Preferred Provider with Allergan, Dr. Scott Thompson was one of few physicians in the state of Utah to provide Juvederm Voluma to his patients prior to nationwide release in December of 2013. As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Thompson is incredibly experienced and trained in the use of injectables to all areas of the face. He often uses Voluma in conjunction with other injectables for an overall in-office facial rejuvenating procedure, sometimes referred to as a “Liquid Facelift”. By adding volume to the mid-face with Voluma, in conjunction with dermal fillers and Botox to treat more fine lines and wrinkles, dramatic results can be achieved in one visit with no downtime.
Our expert nurse injectors, Alfie Symes and Beth Sheiner, have both been trained specifically under Dr. Thompson and have many years of experience treating patients with Voluma and other injectables. Their results are incredibly natural and they spend ample time with each patient to ensure the best and safest outcome possible.
