What is Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC (“Voluma”), a volume filler recently approved by the FDA, is a newcomer in the medical aesthetic market. Voluma, the only FDA-approved filler of its kind, instantly improves age-induced volume loss in the cheeks. Physicians who are offering this new treatment praise the product’s smoothness and its ability to correct the structure of the cheeks.
Rather than being used to fill and refill the folds of the nasolabial area, Voluma is used to recreate the volume of your cheeks, thereby creating a subtle mid-face lift. This means that the cause (the flattening cheeks that become more apparent after the age of 40) is treated, not the consequence (sagging skin and deeper nasolabial folds).
What is Voluma made from?
Voluma contains a modified hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring, hydrating substance that is found in your skin.
What is the advantage of Voluma?
The results of a Voluma treatment can last for up to two years. Not only does this require fewer trips to your physician, but this means that patients do not have to face the needle as often as with other facial fillers. Patients can also return to normal levels of activity after only 24 hours.
