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
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018
"I am a surgeon, so I know a good surgeon when I see one. My sutures were perfectly aligned, equidistant from each other, and tiny as quilting stitches. Now, 3 months after an eye and facelift, I look like a younger, more gorgeous version of myself. I never would have thought it possible! I am a fan and I will be sending my own patients to Dr. Petroff."- K.A. / Yelp / Mar 16, 2019
"I have spent most of my career in a helping profession and teaching others how to help. I teach the importance of self-care and the replenishing the mind, body, and spirit. Yet, I did not follow my own advice - for years - and it impacted my health and my appearance. I met Dr. Petroff when he performed the most beautiful rhinoplasty on my daughter and was immediately impressed with his professionalism, bedside manner, and skill. At the time, I was just so pleased my daughter was in safe hands. But he and his staff are infectious in their commitment to patients and to meaningful and thoughtful engagement with their patients. I took the plunge and decided, for my own wellbeing, I would invest in myself with the works - facelift, rhinoplasty, and whatever else Dr. Petroff would suggest. In our first meeting he listened with empathy, heard the meaning behind my words, and said no. He told me I didn't need "the works." He told me exactly what he would choose to help me look like a healthier, younger version of me. He told me he thought I looked sweet and he could make me look sweeter. It was not a line. He was turning down work to give me what I was really asking for. That is integrity. From the moment I said yes, his entire staff - from scheduling to nursing to accounting - were attentive, clear, informative, and thorough. I knew exactly what Dr. Petroff would do, how he would do it, and who would help him. His staff called regularly to schedule and confirm appointments. Those appointments were never cancelled and I was always seen on time. Even his anesthesiologist was sweet, well-informed, and pro-active. She called before surgery to review her plan, reiterated it the day of surgery, and followed it exactly. Surgery went perfectly and just as described. I followed their directions for my aftercare and relied on their workbook (yes, they give you a workbook to outline the surgery, procedures, recovery, and it even emphasize the emotional impact of the surgery and recovery process). I am two weeks out from surgery. I have had two ultrasound appointments to reduce swelling (heavenly), a makeup session to learn to cover bruising (licensed estheticians), my staples and stitches removed by two different nurses with the most steady and gentle hands ever, and regular check-ups with Dr. Petroff. I know that people who watch too much television about plastic surgery might think this is a vanity field. I know that for Dr. Petroff and his staff, this is not about vanity. They genuinely understand that how we look is a reflection of how we feel and how we feel is reflected in how we look. By honoring their clients, they honor the value of self care. And, I wish he was not so busy because, besides his surgical skills, if I could download his interviewing techniques and employee training and management principles, I would. The staff is remarkable - without exception. Thank you, thank you, thank you all!"- M.C. / Yelp / Mar 07, 2019
"Friendly staff and Dr. Petroff is simply the best in his field."- F.F. / Google / Mar 01, 2019
"Dr. Petroff and his team were so kind, caring, and courteous throughout my whole medical experience with the clinic. It was clear that everyone was genuinely considerate of my desires and needs, and the results were all I ever wanted. I would definitely recommend Dr. Petroff to others, and am so grateful for him!"- S. / Healthgrades / Jan 19, 2019
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.
