About Voluma XC
Voluma XC by Juvéderm is a smooth-gel dermal filler that once injected into the face, restores volume and fullness in large areas such as the cheeks. With Voluma XC, our Lake Oswego, OR patients can enjoy fuller, sharper features as well as a more youthful look. This nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatment allows Dr. Petroff to present an effect similar to cheek augmentation typically achieved by implants. Thanks to Voluma’s advanced, durable formula, patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance for up to 2 years. And since Voluma XC is made of substances that are naturally found in the body, it’s gradually and safely absorbed into the skin over time. Treatments are available onsite at Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa after a thorough consult with Dr. Petroff.
Voluma XC can be a very beneficial injection when delivered to the appropriate candidates. Patients who will see the best results will have:
- Thinning facial skin in need of contouring
- Moderate to severe wrinkles in the facial skin
- Overall healthy skin free of sunburns or any infections
- A desire for a nonsurgical procedure
- A desire for natural-looking, long-lasting results
"Fabulous practice. Dr Petroff and his very professional staff are a pleasure to work with. He is a wonderful plastic surgeon and I would highly recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery or any cosmetic work.

"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Petroff or his staff! I got a rhinoplasty done at the Petroff Center 6 months ago and I'm absolutely obsessed with how my nose turned out. The entire process was so much easier than I thought it was going to be and I know that's because of the expertise of Dr. Petroff! I barely bruised, had minimal swelling and healed extremely fast. He somehow managed to give me everything I wanted out of my surgery and more. He has the absolute perfect eye for rhinoplasty, I constantly get compliments about how natural my nose looks now, and how it looks like the nose I should've had! Not only that his staff is amazing, warm, welcoming and extremely helpful! I can't even begin to describe how absolutely beautiful and happy I feel because of this surgery and I'm so so glad I chose The Petroff Center. If you're wanting a rhinoplasty; especially in Oregon there's just no one better than Dr. Petroff!!"- S.R. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2017
"I've had multiple treatments of lip injections from Dr. Petroff and I can honestly say he is the only doctor I will trust in the Portland area. He listened to my request and concerns on how I liked the shape of my lips. He is very knowledgeable on what types of injectables I would benefit from and what injections may not work the best for me. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this facility."- T.R. / Yelp / Dec 09, 2017
"I have complete and utter trust with Dr Petroff. I am very happy with the results of my surgery and it has only been two weeks. I call him ""The Master"". Picking the right plastic surgeon, in my opinion is the most important part of plastic surgery. The staff are wonderful and always there for you. They called me regularly to check on me! I am grateful....and look amazing!"- A.M. / Solutionreach / Nov 14, 2017
"It was a pleasant and very comfortable experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat."- G.S. / Solutionreach / Nov 11, 2017
What to Expect
Before Voluma XC injections, a numbing cream may be applied to the injection sites to minimize the discomfort, but most patients feel very little pain during their treatment. Our surgeon or esthetician will carefully inject Voluma XC into the needed areas of the face in as little as 10 minutes. Patients may return to their normal activities as soon as they feel able, with minimal swelling and tenderness. Patients will see some results right away, but it usually takes about 7 days before the filler settles into the cheeks for the final results. The effects of Voluma XC last up to 2 years, and patients should talk to our plastic surgeon about when to reschedule for continued effects.
After Voluma XC, a patient may experience swelling, tenderness, firmness, or the appearance of lumps/bumps in the treatment site. Patients can expect the side effects to last 2 – 4 weeks. For the first 24 hours after a treatment, the patient should refrain from strenuous exercise and avoid excessive exposure to the sun. Some patients may choose to receive a touch-up treatment about 1 month after the initial treatment to obtain desired goals. Results should last for 2 years – after then, additional treatments may be needed.
