    Juvederm Voluma - Boston Medical Aesthetics

    Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler cleared by the FDA to restore volume loss in the cheeks and chin area. With age, volume loss in the mid-face causes the cheeks to flatten and sag. By injecting Juvederm Voluma XC under the skin with a small needle, the cheek area can be subtly lifted, temporarily reversing this sign of aging. It also works beautifully for augmenting the chin and jawline, restoring overall facial harmony in a subtle manner.


    Rather than spot-treating individual wrinkles and filling them, we can now take a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation by minimizing the signs of aging in the midface or chin area first, and filling residual wrinkles later. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC works with its sister product, JUVÉDERM®, to produce more complete results.

    At Boston Medical Aesthetics, we are delighted to offer JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC as part of our complete range of anti-aging treatments. The subtle lift achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can make a dramatic difference. The best part is that JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC provides an instant lift that’s long-lasting - results can last up to 2 years.

    JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is FDA-approved for Cheeks & Chin

    Juvederm Voluma XC has been helping our patients achieve youthful, contoured cheeks since September 3, 2019. Patients surveyed in clinical trials reported feeling that they looked up to 5 years younger after treatment. In exciting news, the FDA also cleared Juvederm Voluma XC for chin augmentation on June 15, 2020.

    Age-related changes to the midface occur because of fat, bone, and muscle loss. The loss of these youthful structures in the face creates a thin, hollowed appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC combats lost volume by plumping the midface, chin, and cheekbones.

    JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has a thicker consistency than the original JUVÉDERM®, which makes it ideal for facial contouring. It is designed to be placed on top of facial bones - such as the cheekbones or chin - to add volume, lift, and fullness.

    The size and shape of the chin may change with age due to changing fat, bone, and muscle loss that occurs over the years. These structural anatomical changes occur incrementally, gradually changing the position and contours of the chin. Unfortunately, this has a devastating effect on an individual’s appearance. A poorly contoured chin makes a face appear less chiseled and aged.

    JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC restores chin shape and volume in a series of quick injections that have an instant effect. Your doctor can create and mold the chin to the desired contours — all without performing surgery. Thanks to JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC’s thicker gel consistency (compared to the original Voluma product), it works exceptionally well in the chin area. The treatment is FDA-approved to work. Best of all, there is no downtime and very minimal injection site pain.

    For instant non-surgical chin enhancement, ask your doctor about Voluma XC.

    JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the Only FDA-approved Non-surgical Chin Enhancement Filler

    In ground breaking news, the FDA recently approved Juvederm Voluma for non-surgical chin augmentation. Augmenting the chin’s appearance may not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering how to make an individual’s overall appearance look better, yet it is among the most effective ways to achieve total facial harmony.

    For patients that wish to improve their looks by enhancing the chin without resorting to permanent chin augmentation with surgery, Allergan Aesthetics is proud to announce the FDA’s first — and only — approved cosmeceutical drug for chin augmentation with Juvéderm Voluma XC. This is one of the most exciting advancements in the medical aesthetics industry. Now, adults aged 21 and older can feel confident in the chin’s appearance with a top-of-the-line dermal filler that is proven to work. Clinical studies performed in the United States now reveal that Juvéderm Voluma XC is both safe and effective in the chin region. In these studies, the majority of participants reported high patient satisfaction rates one-year post-treatment.

    JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® vs Chin Implants

    For years, patients that were unwilling to have off-label chin enhancement with dermal fillers had only permanent chin implants to consider.

    While chin implants provide a remarkable and reliable improvement to the shape and contour of a chin that’s too small, narrow, or poorly defined, the cost of chin implants is a deterrent for many patients. Having to commit to a permanent change to the appearance led some patients to feel stuck with a chin they do not like. The downtime and pain of chin implant surgery only further complicated matters. Now that Voluma chin injections are FDA approved, patients benefit from a safe cosmetic option that is far less invasive than cosmetic surgery, yet no less effective.

    Why Choose Non-surgical Chin Augmentation Instead of Implants?

    Now, Juvéderm Voluma XC has opened new doors for our patients, allowing them to enjoy long lasting — but not permanent — chin augmentation without the risks, recovery time, or out-of-pocket costs associated with chin implant surgery. Dermal fillers for chin augmentation are also an excellent way to trial the look of chin implants, without committing to surgery.

    Patients can watch a new chin take shape in less than 30 minutes, right before their eyes. With minimal pain, greater precision, and fewer risks than cosmetic surgery, Voluma XC is a clear winner for many patients that wish to augment the chin area. Voluma for chin augmentation and jawline contouring is so remarkable, many patients choose to continue having convenient and effective chin fillers every 1 - 2 years, skipping permanent chin augmentation surgery altogether.

    At Boston Medical Aesthetics, our board-certified nurse practitioner Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, performs dermal filler injections at our Boston office.

She'll work with you to develop a treatment plan that best addresses your needs and cosmetic goals.

    Your JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC Treatment

    JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections are considered “lunchtime” procedures because the treatment can be performed in 30 minutes or less and requires no downtime. There's no preparation needed before your appointment. However, we do recommend that you avoid blood thinning medications for 1 - 2 weeks before your injections. This helps reduce the risk of bruising.

    Just before your procedure, ice is applied to the treatment areas to minimize discomfort, swelling, and bruising. A topical numbing cream is also available. However, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC contains lidocaine - a numbing agent - so many people don't require additional pain relief. During treatment, Jennifer will use a thin needle to place JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC in areas of facial hollowing such as the cheeks or chin region. She will gently press the filler into your skin to sculpt a more youthful, contoured face shape. This will take only a few minutes and most people are very comfortable during this process.

    The results are visible instantly, and Jennifer will provide you with a mirror so that you can watch your new facial contours take shape. Once your procedure is complete, you can return to your normal daily activities. Your skin may appear red, swollen, or slightly bruised for a day or 2 after your injections. However, these side effects are mild and resolve quickly. In about 3 to 5 days, most swelling and bruising should be gone, and you should see your final results. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a thicker formula, it is very long-lasting - often as long as 1 or 2 years.
