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. Mark A. Petroff and Dr. Brian Scott 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 or Dr. Scott.
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
"Added a few more photos of me 5 months post op! I’m so incredibly happy with my nose and have zero regrets! I can breath well, it looks even cuter than the first time I took the cast off and continues to gently heal"- J.B. / Yelp / Oct 05, 2022
"If I could give Dr. Petroff 10 stars I would. He is a fantastic and extremely talented plastic surgeon for the face. I received a revision rhinoplasty through Petroff. My driest rhinoplasty was with an entirely different surgeon almost two years ago. My previous surgeon was too conservative and did not provide the results I’d asked for. After consulting with several surgeons and researching, The Petroff center was by far the most impressive. If you are seeking a rhinoplasty or revision, look no further, because he will make your dreams come true. Not only is his technic with the nose fantastic, all of his patients have similar results showing his technique is consistent. Outside of Dr. Petroffs technical skills and attention to detail/your needs, his medical staff was fantastic. From the scheduling, pre op and post op care, I was thoroughly communicated with via email and phone calls. His team also offers a vitamin treatment to prep for your procedure making your body stronger for the healing process. The sedation process for the procedure was great and the nurses were holding my hands/arms for comfort since I was nervous. After coming out of surgery, I had a bouquet of roses with an adorable poem from the staff. I can’t believe I went somewhere else before Petroff, I wish I would have gone to him sooner. Regardless, I have no regrets and admire his talent, as well as his staffs talents."- J.B. / Yelp / May 19, 2022
"Dr. Petroff and his team are very professional, deliver excellent results and most importantly show great care. I highly recommend Dr. Petroff for his expertise and desire to support his patients in the best possible way. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jan 25, 2022
"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
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. A surgeon or an 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.
