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 had rhinoplasty with Dr Petroff in the summer of 2005. This many years on I can attest to the quality of his skill. Completely natural looking and absolutely improved my life."- T. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t speak highly enough about Dr Petroff and his staff. I started visiting the center years ago for facials, chemical peels and laser treatments. I was always completely amazed and how amazing the staff was, and how much my skin improved. I had always hoped to one day fix my crooked nose. There was no doubt in my mind Dr Petroff would be the surgeon for me, after seeing his amazing work on my family and friends. I had a rhinoplasty done a little over a year and a half ago... and to this day I’m still in complete awe of his work. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect nose for my face. My nose was unique but Dr Petroff was able to transform it. I am forever thankful to Dr Petroff, and his amazing staff who has always made me feel comfortable and welcomed."- K.A. / Yelp / Jul 21, 2021
"Thank you so much Dr. Petroff. From the moment I walked into the Petroff Center I was so very completely taken care of by experienced, friendly, and competent staff. I found Dr. Petroff to be a very talented and brilliant plastic surgeon. The facelift I received made my kids say “Mom! You look 30 years younger!” (slight exaggeration). I received the best care and from the best doctor ever! Dr. Mark Petroff is a perfectionist. I look amazing and feel wonderful after only two weeks post surgery! The face and neck lift look very natural. Examples: Turkey neck – gone, I can feel my trachea; pixie ear gone, he gave me ear lobes; my high cheek bones are back along with my happy smile. After interviewing a number of surgeons Dr. Petroff was the only facial plastic surgeon would make an incision hidden inside the hairline. I was out in the public within four days when I was able to have dinner at a restaurant with my son. He listened to my concerns and preformed a scar revision from work left by another doctor years ago. I am so grateful to another plastic surgeon who recommended Dr. Petroff. He told me that Dr. Petroff is the best at facial surgery and would send his mother to him for a facelift. I took his advice and I am so thankful I did. Oh, and by the way, it was not that painful at all, just a bit uncomfortable. Go for it!"- A.M. / Google / Jun 05, 2021
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.
