What is Voluma?
One indication of youth is fullness or volume in the upper part of the face, particularly the temple area and cheeks. We usually think of fat as bad and thin as good. In the face, however, a healthy plumpness is preferred to an overly thin or gaunt appearance. Over time, a loss of volume in the temples, under eye area, cheek and sub-cheek region can give a person a tired, worn-out look.
Juvéderm Voluma™ San Diego XC is a smooth, hyaluronic acid based gel filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to all 3 areas of the cheek (apex, apple, and hollow). This gives a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile.
How It Works
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid – a naturally hydrating substance. Like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. As we age the amount of hyaluronic acid diminishes, causing our skin to lose structure and volume.
Voluma™ is a hyaluronic acid filler that works to correct this by immediately lifting and restoring volume to the cheek area after treatment. The result is a more youthful curve in the upper part of the face.
Voluma™ is different than other hyaluronic acid fillers due to its unique formulation. It is made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid molecules and is specifically engineered to last longer and stay within the treated area for 12- 24 months.
Who is a candidate for Voluma™?
Any healthy woman or man over the age of 21 who wants to correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. It’s also great for patients looking for immediate results with no surgery or downtime.
What areas can be treated?
Voluma™ immediately restores volume to all 3 areas of the cheek (the apex, the apple, and the hollow) to create a more youthful contour and profile.
How long does Voluma™ last?
Results are clinically proven to last from 12 to 24 months depending on the area treated, the amount of product used, and your body’s ability to break down the product. .
What’s the difference between Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC?
Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC are both made of hyaluronic acid, but are specifically engineered for different areas of the face.
Juvéderm® XC is used to smooth out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth area while Voluma™ XC is used to lift and add volume to the cheek area.
Both Juvéderm® XC and Voluma™ XC contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, to improve comfort during treatment.
Can other fillers be used with Voluma™?
