Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is FDA-Approved
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is the newest HA (hyaluronic acid) soft tissue filler to join the family of FDA approved Juvéderm products in the USA and is the only filler approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is a smoother sugar molecule gel substance made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring hydrating substance found in your skin. This unique formulation of hyaluronic acid contributes to the lift capacity to correct volume loss in the cheek area. As you age, the naturally occurring HA begins to decrease which causes the skin to lose structure and volume in the face. Treatment with Juvéderm VOLUMA combats these effects by creating a natural lift against gravity and thus restoring volume and fullness to the face.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC was specifically created to restore facial volume in the cheekbones and cheeks area providing a natural contouring of the face along with smoothing out the appearance of wrinkles. thus restoring volume and plumpness to the face. Additionally, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC also contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, for your comfort. Results from Juvederm Voluma treatment have been seen to last up to two years with optimal treatment.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC can also be combined with other facial fillers such as Botox, Dysport, and Restylane. Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is well suited for many areas of the face, such as the cheeks, but is not ideal for certain areas like the lips.
