What is Juvéderm Voluma XC ?
Juvéderm Voluma, the newest in the family of hyaluronic acid (HA) gels are the leading injectable dermal fillers in the world, with an established record of safety and effectiveness. Volume loss of skin, bone and the subcutaneous fat of the face contribute to the visible signs of aging. These areas of facial atrophy (shrinking) and sagging lax skin begin appearing by the age of 35 in many patients and continue each decade of life. This causes the cheek area to lose its youthful shape. The cheeks can then flatten and skin begins to sag with less pronounced cheekbones and chin with a resulting heavier jawline as well as deepening of the smile lines of the face. This can generally can be seen in patients as early as 40’s and definitely in the 50’s and beyond.
In late 2013 the FDA has approved a new filler in the Juvéderm family called Juvéderm VOLUMA XC for the treatment of adding volume and contour to the cheek and other facial areas. This filler can provide long term panfacial volumizing by subtly lifting the cheek to achieve facial harmony and an improved cosmetic appearance giving a more youthful “apple” cheek look that you had at a younger age.
Voluma XC has a unique composition of VYCROSS technology that increases the duration of filler in tissues and 0.3% Lidocaine for anesthesia that provides a injection with less discomfort. Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable dermal filler is a noninvasive way to restore volume and subtle lifting of the cheeks to give you a more “apple cheek” and youthful appearance once again.
Juvéderm Voluma is manufactured by Allergan the maker of Botox and is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid gel filler on the market at this time.
