JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is for injection into areas of facial tissue where
moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add natural looking
volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth. Many patients also enjoy
the effects of Juvederm to subtly enhance the fullness and plumpness in lips. Our
gentle technique offers our patients subtle and natural looking results with little to no
VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-
related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. Dr. Tess was hand-picked by Allergan
to be one of the first in the nation to offer Voluma and to be one of six to participate in
an expert injector course for Voluma. Her special technique not only adds volume to
the upper cheeks but also lifts the face and jawline and fills in undereye bags.
WHAT IS JUVEDERM AND VOLUMA MADE OF?
JUVEDERM XC AND VOLUMA XC injectable gel is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA
is naturally occurring in our body and is a major component of skin and cartilage. HA
injectable gel is the safest type of filler available on the market and has been FDA
approved for years. Dr. Tess only uses the safest fillers in her practice.

allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), or if you are allergic to the proteins (gram-positive

What are possible side effects and ways I can minimize them?
Even in the most experienced hands, some downtime is possible with any filler injection. We offer the Auriderm Post-Injection Relief Kit to our
patients to help minimize the possible swelling and bruising that can be associated with filler injections. For best results, you should begin using the
kit 2 days before your procedure. To minimize your risk of bruising discontinue aspirin, ibuprofen, multivitamins, fish oil, St. John’s Wort and alcohol
consumption 7 days prior to treatment.
For JUVÉDERM® XC, the downtime is little to none and lasts 7 days or less. The most common side effects include temporary injection-site
reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling and bruising.
For VOLUMA® XC, side effects are mild to moderate and generally last 1 to 3 weeks. The most common side effects include temporary reactions at
the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain and redness.
