Juvederm Voluma is a heavily cross-linked hyaluronic acid injectable which is injected deeper and last longer than other hyaluronic injectables. It is used for volume replacement thereby providing more projection. This helps patients correct loss of skin volume from aging. This is an FDA-approved gel that instantly adds more volume to the cheek area. Patients can experience a lift that helps restore contour and a more youthful profile.
In contrast to Juvederm XC, Juvederm Voluma treats a different area on the face. XC smoothes out moderate or severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth area. Voluma results in increased volume in the cheek area.
Patients experiencing flatter cheeks and sagging skin at the jawline can add fillers for a more youthful appearance and profile. The results are natural and can work for up to two years. Juvederm VOLUMA is created with VYCROSSO technology, which ensures a smooth and consistent gel filler. To improve comfort, volume is formulated with lidocaine, or numbing medication.
If your cheeks have experienced the effects of aging and you are unsatisfied with your appearance, call Dr. Alan Heller’s office to determine if Juvederm Voluma can work for you.
