As we age, the collagen and elastin levels of our skin become depleted, causing a loss of elasticity and volume. Today, dermal filler injections allow for a rejuvenation of the skin without the need for more invasive procedures.
A youthful face typically has plentiful collagen and well-distributed fat that together create satisfyingly rounded curves. The damaging effects of sun exposure and the realities of aging reduce these vital components in the skin over time, causing hollows to develop where there once was a look of healthy fullness and creases to form in areas where the skin was formerly smooth.
When applied by a skilled injector in facial areas chosen with precision, Juvéderm® can "fill in" unwanted lines, making them less noticeable.*
All of the Juvéderm® fillers are injectable gels with a hyaluronic acid base, giving them a particular affinity for water and allowing them to hold onto water molecules to encourage both added volume and moisture retention in the skin.

WHAT IS JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
Voluma® XC can temporarily restore a youthful profile, bringing a pleasant shape, youthful roundness, and increased volume back to key areas for years.* This hyaluronic acid-based filler adds fullness to the apple of the cheeks and changes facial contours for a younger look.*
The Voluma® XC filler acts as a replacement for the hyaluronic acid lost to time and the elements. Hyaluronic acid is very good at retaining water, so Voluma® XC allows the skin to hold onto moisture and create volume where it is needed. This volume can round out the apple of the cheek again, filling in hollows and lifting the skin that has sagged. Under ideal conditions, the results can last for up to two years.*
YOUR JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC PROCEDURE
Most injectable dermal fillers are now infused with lidocaine to improve your comfort during the procedure. A topical anesthetic or a local anesthetic injection can also be used to reduce discomfort. An ultrathin needle is used to inject the Voluma® XC into a deep layer of the skin.
The procedure usually only takes a few minutes, but if a topical anesthetic is used, you must be in our office for a short period in order for numbing to take place. Allergic reactions with these products are extremely rare, so skin testing is not required.
WHAT IS JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
As with all Juvéderm® fillers, the active ingredient in Volbella® XC is hyaluronic acid. Allergan's proprietary Vycross® technology creates a blend of different molecular weights in the hyaluronic acid to create the smooth, gel-like consistency that allows the injector to massage and precisely distribute the filler into the skin for the best possible results.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC treatments can add subtle volume to the lips and around the lip area, correcting vertical lines around the mouth. The filler helps the skin maintain fullness as it holds in water like a sponge and is able to absorb and retain up to 1,000 times its own weight. Juvéderm Volbella® XC has also been shown in several cases to boost the skin's natural production of collagen.

YOUR JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC PROCEDURE
Once the areas for treatment have been precisely selected and cleaned, Juvéderm Volbella® XC is injected carefully in and around the lips with an ultra-fine needle. Your injector may gently massage and work to distribute the gel into the skin to achieve more customized, targeted results.
The treatment sessions are simple and efficient, conducted in our office, and last about 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. Our patients usually report that Juvéderm Volbella® injections feel virtually painless and give the skin in the treated areas a tighter and smoother appearance. The effects of the Juvéderm Volbella® session can continue to improve in the days following treatment, and can last up to a year.*

WHAT COMPLEMENTS JUVÉDERM®? OTHER WRINKLE TREATMENTS AND MORE IN PORTLAND
The various members of the Juvéderm® family all work well to complement each other, as well as other treatments. While Juvéderm® fillers are intended to soften static wrinkles, dynamic wrinkles—which form as certain muscles contract over and over again—require a different solution. BOTOX® can relax the targeted muscles for months at a time, reducing the appearance of frown lines on the forehead and fine wrinkles to the side of the eyes, known as crow's feet.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion can further enhance rejuvenation efforts by evening out pigmentation irregularities, softening fine lines, and providing skin with an overall healthy glow.*
Sagging on the lower face may also be addressed by surgery, which yields longer lasting and often more dramatic results. A facelift is designed to tighten and lift drooping skin that forms jowls. Talk to The Waldorf Center's team to find out which treatment would best suit your unique needs.
