Why Juvederm VOLUMA®?


voluma before after imageJuvederm VOLUMA® is the first dermal filler of its kind approved by the FDA for improving cheek and midface volume in patients 21 years of age or older. 


VOLUMA® is a unique dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to add volume to the face. It's a volumizing filler that can be used to replace volumes that are naturally lost over time. It can improve the appearance of the cheekbones and rejuvenate the appearance of a hollow midface. 


VOLUMA® is an innovative injectable treatment not only volumizes the cheeks and midface, but also smoothes moderate to strong lines and wrinkles, and provides a youthful contour in patients with various signs of facial aging.


VOLUMA® helps to provide areas of the face with volumes that are deflated and invaded over time. VOLUMA® has a very different consistency than other products of earlier generations such as Juvederm Ultra or Restylane. 


The entire treatment takes about 15 minutes, and the results of the cheek and midface enlargement usually appear immediately after the injection. 


One of the main benefits of VOLUMA® is that it consists of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA fillers are made of long, naturally occurring sugar chains in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a common component of the second layer of the skin and contributes to the structuring of the skin. 


VOLUMA® has been available in Europe since 2005 and is used in over 60 countries worldwide. VOLUMA® XC is the current form (XC means it also contains a local anesthetic for added comfort during the injection process). 



What is VOLUMA®?

VOLUMA® acts to restore volume and fill the skin by replenishing the lost hyaluronic acid. Thanks to its unique formulation, it can be injected deep into the hollow areas of the face with an ultrafine needle. After injection, HA in VOLUMA® binds and absorbs water, providing subtle lifting and giving the skin a firm, hydrated look. In fact, treatment with this filler can provide patients with a subtle lift and voluminous contour for up to two years for optimal treatment.



Who is a good candidate for VOLUMA®?

The best candidates for VOLUMA® XC are those who have experienced a loss of volume in their cheeks due to aging, weight loss or illness. It nourishes elastin and collagen, fibers that form the supportive structure of your skin. Voluma XC was developed for injection into the middle to deep dermis of your skin. Voluma XC has been proven to last up to two years.
