From the company that brought us our beloved Botox now comes JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC. This injectable gel is the first and only FDA-approved soft tissue facial filler to instantly add volume to the cheeks. One of the early signs of aging is volume loss from fat and bone absorption. This results in sagging skin and cheek hollowing that increases over time. VOLUMA is made with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin. As you age, you lose hyaluronic acid resulting in loss of skin structure and volume.
This filler will restore the cheek contour for up to TWO years. The in-office injection process is simple and virtually pain free. A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for approximately 15 minutes prior to the injection. VOLUMA is also mixed with lidocaine for further comfort. There is very little down time after treatment. Slight swelling and bruising may occur but generally resolve quickly.
We are excited to offer this long-lasting filler to our patients.
