JUVÉDERM VOLUMA ® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA ® XC dermal filler excels at addressing mid-facial volume loss. It also serves well for other contouring such as the chin and jaw-line. In addition, it works well to plump ear lobes for better seating of accessories and jewelry.
Unique among the Juvederm® family of dermal fillers, Voluma® focuses on midfacial contours. Volume—and thereby roundness—to the “apple” of the cheek, correct for a loss of collagen and fat that can lead to a flat or hollow look. Since volume loss in the midface also causes sagging, this filler can serve to provide a “liquid facial lift”.
The formulation lasts longer than most hyaluronic acid fillers in the skin. Vycross® crosslinking technology extends the longevity of this filler’s results (after full correction) up to 18 months.
VOLUMA is a crystal-clear gel that is injected using an ultra-fine needle. The lidocaine inside the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain. Besides helping restore volume beneath the surface of different areas of the face without surgery, treatment additionally also boosts the skin’s resilience.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA ® XC with optimal treatment lasts up to 18 months. This because of patented Vycross technology.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body that strongly binds to water. As a result it delivers volume and added resilience to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind JUVÉDERM ®. Different formulations have different physical properties. This allows selection of the optimal match for the problem at hand. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA ® XC is the softest version, VOLUMA ® the firmest (think chin and cheeks), while VOLLURE ® has the most pliability (laugh-lines).
Our practice has educational displays that patients can interact with to experience what these different versions look and feel like.
