JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC in Orange County

JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC is a new dermal filler used to augment the jawline and help individuals achieve their cosmetic goals by adjusting facial proportions.

As we age, gravity can affect tissue and fat deposits, and bone density in our faces, all of which can change the appearance of the lower face. Your body also slows the production of collagen and elastin. These molecules provide structure and elasticity to the skin, influencing the appearance of jowls or a double chin.

When you want to learn more about JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC in Orange County, we encourage you to call the office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Lenore Sikorski. She is a dermatologist, cosmetic surgeon, and master injector who understands how to use fillers, injectables, thread lifts, and laser treatments to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.


JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC is a unique hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to your face. While the results of all hyaluronic acid fillers are not permanent, JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC can have a long-lasting effect on altering your facial proportions and offering a chiseled jawline.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular injectables that typically reduce wrinkles and restore volume. JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC is a specific type of hyaluronic acid filler with a robust structure that makes it ideal for defining and sculpting the jawline.

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule the body produces to retain moisture in the skin and connective tissue. JUVÉDERM uses a modified form of hyaluronic acid that helps restore volume in the face by attracting fluid using their patented Vycross® Technology. It cross-links hyaluronic acid molecules to attract more fluid and last longer.

How Does It Work?

JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC is FDA-approved to improve jawline definition in adults. It helps sculpt the jawline using a dense molecular composition with more lift capacity and a greater ability to contour the lower face.

JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC contains hyaluronic acid and 0.3% lidocaine, which helps reduce discomfort in the area during the injections. The compound is injected under the skin but above the bone to improve jawline definition.

The FDA advises that JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC should not be used in people with severe allergies, a history of anaphylaxis, or a known hypersensitivity to gram-positive bacterial proteins. Individuals with a bleeding disorder, a history of allergy to lidocaine, or a history or known presence of multiple severe allergies should also not use JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC.

JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC contains a thicker and more cohesive formula than other hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. This makes it a longer-lasting substance that may offer an alternative for those who are seeking a non-surgical treatment option.

However, this unique formulation can make it more difficult to reverse the effects. Dr. Sikorski can reverse the results of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers with an enzyme called hyaluronidase that dissolves the filler so the effects disappear.

JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC uses a new formulation that is thicker and lasts longer. This also makes it more difficult for hyaluronidase to dissolve the filler and reverse the effects. JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC in Orange County should be injected by a licensed provider like Dr. Sikorski, who has experience with dermal fillers to achieve the results you desire.

What Should I Expect During Recovery?

As with other dermal filler treatments, you can expect some tenderness, swelling, and bruising that typically subsides completely within two weeks. To minimize bruising, you should stop using any medications, supplements, or over-the-counter drugs that increase the risk of bleeding for one week before the treatment.

Avoiding alcohol or exercise for at least 24 hours after can also help reduce the risk of bruising. While many of the results are immediate, you will continue to see improvement in jawline definition for up to six months, and the results can last from 18-24 months or longer with care.

You can protect your results of JUVÉDERM® VOLUX® XC in Orange County and potentially extend them by staying hydrated and avoiding UV exposure. Prolonged exposure to the sun can degrade hyaluronic acid more quickly and damage skin elasticity.

Choose a healthy lifestyle, including avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as these exacerbate the degradation of dermal fillers and impact overall skin quality.

Finally, speak to Dr. Sikorski about the proper skin care for your skin type. Using a gentle cleanser and moisturizing regularly using products that contain active ingredients can help support skin health and enhance the longevity of dermal fillers.
