Considering Voluma® XC
Voluma is a Hyaluronic Acid gel that can be injected on top of bony prominences to augment the appearance of bone. As the aging process progresses, bone structures can elongate creating hollowness, and in combination with decreased collagen production volume loss occurs to the face.
Great candidates for Voluma are the following:
Flat and sunken cheeks/ flat apples of the cheek
Sagging in the cheek and jawline area
18 years of age and up who desire a contoured cheek/ higher cheekbones
Those looking for a treatment that provides real, noticeable results along with no surgery or recovery time.
How Voluma® XC Works
Voluma is the first and only FDA approved injectable gel filler for the cheek area. The hyaluronic acid gel filler is injected on top of bone by using a fine needle to provide instant volume to the cheeks. It can give a natural and soft lift to the cheeks creating the appearance of fuller or higher cheekbones. Voluma provides a natural looking result for a youthful profile, shedding years off your face. Voluma can also give you contoured cheek look, making your face appear slimmer for some patients. Voluma contains a local anesthetic called Lidocaine to help reduce the discomfort of the procedure. The number of syringes needed for augmentation depends on the volume loss and result expected by the patient. Allergan generally recommends one syringe per decade of a patient’s age.
Voluma® XC Treatment Areas
The most common and FDA approved area that Voluma is injected into is the cheeks. However, it is not only limited to that area. Having an Allergan Trainer on our team allows our experienced nurse injectors to safely inject Voluma to other off-label areas. These may include; chin and jawline.
Recovery & Results
There is no actual downtime with Voluma. However, it is recommended to sleep on your back for the first three nights post-injection as to not put any shifting pressure on the filler. Results are almost immediate with full results being seen in two weeks as swelling and bruising should be expected. Treatment results can last up to 2 years. Although, each patient is different and results can vary on a case to case basis. It is recommended to be treated on a regular basis determined by your provider to retain the best results.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC is a highly linked hyaluronic acid filler that is most frequently used to fill superficial lines and add volume to any areas on the face. It can last 8-12 months. Juvéderm® Voluma XC is a newer formula FDA approved for instantly adding volume to the cheeks. Juvéderm® Voluma XC results can last up to two years.
Adults of any age who notice changes to their mid-face or at the jawline may be considered good candidates for treatment with Voluma XC. Typical early signs of aging may include a visible decrease in volume, sagging of the cheeks or the loss of noticeable contour
Voluma® XC is an FDA-approved filler formulated specifically to add volume to the cheeks. It provides a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition that occur over time. Voluma XC can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up the area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process.
You’ll start to see the effects of the treatment immediately. Studies conducted by the manufacturer, Allergen, report that Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC results last 9 to 12 months and Juvéderm® Voluma XC can add volume for up to two years.

Experience the Science of Beauty.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.

Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
