What is JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA ™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than Juvederm XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVEDERM ® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVEDERM VOLUMA ™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

With age, trauma, and disease, our faces lose structural support and volume, leaving us with hollows and sagging bulges. Whereas the botulinum toxins help relax dyanmic lines and wrinkles that first appear with facial movement, the dermal fillers fill in hollow areas and can camouflage some bulges.
Our practice began using the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers (HADFs) in 2003 when they available only in Europe and Canada. Since then, we have performed over 10,000 treatments, making us among the most experienced physician-injectors in this part of the country. In fact, it was our practice’s discovery and publication of the enzyme that rapidly and safely dissolves these materials that helped catapult them to the very top of the list of cosmetic procedures performed every year, right behind the botulinum toxins.
The HADFs are safer than collagens and require no sensitivity testing.
The HADFs remain the only instantly reversible dermal fillers available.
Currently, a wide range of HADFs are available and in our practice we take full advantage of the different properties of all of these fillers to create a complex facial sculpting, combining soft pads with more rigid support, as needed. Our goal is to maintain and enhance each person’s natural appearance, while blunting the ravages of time. Every HADF treatment is customized not only for each person, but with each treatment to adapt to the changing needs of every face.
