Facial fillers like Juvederm's Voluma XC have seen a lot of use recently in helping people regain their youthful appearance. For some, these dermal filler treatments are best applied on the chin, where their effects can help give both your chin and jaw more volume, correct any protrusions, and overall harmonize the lower third of your face. Quick, easy, and almost painless, Voluma XC promises to be one of the injectable treatments that patients will love.
But how fast can the results from Juvederm Voluma show up on the chin? With an experienced injector and enough time, Voluma results can be near-instantaneous. You'll be able to see the effects of the filler gel after your treatment, but the full visible effects may take up to a week to show once any swelling has gone down. Given the type of filler that Voluma belongs to, you can rest easy that you'll be able to showcase your look almost immediately.
Juvederm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid-based facial filler that's designed to add more volume to the midface areas. It's most commonly used as cheek filler, though it can also be applied to reduce the appearance of jowls, reduce the common signs of aging, and add more volume to the chin.
Hyaluronic acid fillers use a gel solution that can show up almost immediately after your procedure is done. Injection sites that get these fillers don't experience too many adverse reactions that can get in the way of your results showing up. This means you can enjoy the benefits of your treatment almost immediately after leaving your provider's office.
But while some visible differences can be seen soon after the procedure is done, keep in mind that full changes may take some time to settle. For immediate results, you'll be able to see improvements after a week when the swelling has gone down - but if you want the best results, you'll need to wait for around 3 to 4 weeks.
You might wonder why there's such a large time frame between "effective results" and "best results". The simple answer for this is that while Voluma can provide immediate skin structure and volume to the injected area, there are still some other factors at play that can affect the outcome of your treatment. Some of these include:
As a whole, hyaluronic acid fillers are biocompatible (meaning they’re not harmful to other tissues) with your body. Hyaluronic acid is already found naturally inside the body and can be produced naturally - it's what’s crucial to keeping your joints lubricated for easier movement. With additional hyaluronic acid from your filler, you can get more facial volume, keep your skin hydrated, and overall improve tissue health.
However, every patient reacts differently to hyaluronic acid. Older patients may find that they need more filler material compared to younger patients, and people with active lifestyles may sometimes process compounds like hyaluronic acid faster. These differences can add up, which can drastically affect the outcome of your Voluma filler.
Voluma XC has traditionally been used as a cheek and jawline filler - it's only recently that the FDA has approved its use as a chin filler to combat volume loss. But because most patients need jawline and cheek fillers to enhance the entire lower third of their face, the different injection sites may affect how soon the results from your Voluma XC injections can be visible.
Fortunately, it's likely that your provider already has experience with using Voluma XC for chin augmentation. Since the base ingredient of the product is safe for application to other areas of the face, the gap between your expectation and what actually happens with your results may not be that significant.
Providers play a crucial role in both how successful and how soon your filler results will be. An experienced injector will be able to apply Voluma in the exact place along your chin and jawline for the results that you want, while an inexperienced one might need more injections and more time.
For patients who have had unsatisfactory results with Voluma, there is the option to remove the filler material and try again. Because hyaluronic acid doesn't last as long compared to other filler products (and is naturally processed by the body), it's possible to dissolve the filler and try your injections again.
Juvederm Voluma isn't the only way you can get chin augmentation - other dermal fillers and other treatments can also help define the chin. So why choose this product in particular?
Juvederm Voluma XC is just one of the many types of fillers under the Juvederm brand of products, which is a line of long-trusted cosmetic injectables. Aside from the FDA approval that makes it applicable for chin application, Juvederm and hyaluronic acid fillers are known to give very consistent results for almost every patient.
One issue that often makes hyaluronic acid filler unappealing is that it doesn't last that long compared to collagen stimulants or CaHA fillers. On average, you can expect around 6 to 12 months before your HA filler needs to be reapplied again. However, Voluma's formulation can make it last up to 2 years with optimal treatment, especially when applied by an experienced injector.
Juvederm Voluma uses a unique formulation where the gel profile is softer compared to other dermal filler brands. This makes it excellent for getting more natural-looking results where it's more important to make the contour of your chin match the rest of your face, rather than results that aim to define and outline the rest of your jaw.
Unlike a surgical procedure, all dermal fillers like Voluma can be done with a few injections in your provider's office. No cuts, incisions, or other invasive methods are necessary. If you think that the injection itself may be too painful for you, you can ask your provider if they have options like a numbing anesthetic to make the procedure easier.
Because Juvederm is biocompatible with your body, there's very little risk of any adverse effects or reactions that you need to watch out for after your treatment. Aside from some minor swelling, you can more or less resume your normal activities after your injection is over. For more information about what you can and can't do after a dermal filler chin treatment, ask your provider.
Dermal fillers like Voluma can be used by almost anyone, but some candidates may get more effective results compared to others:
