Juvéderm Voluma XC is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to gently lift the skin and restore volume that is lost from aging. It is made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid which is a natural complex sugar that occurs within our bodies. Juvéderm Voluma XC instantly adds volume lost to aging in the cheek areas. Creates contour and a subtle lift, Natural-looking results last up to 2 years with optimal treatment. It adds volume lost to aging for adults over 21 years and helps restore a more youthful profile for up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
How Does Juvederm Voluma Work?
Voluma is approved by the FDA to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Unlike other fillers commonly used to treat the midface (like Sculptra), Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler2. HA fillers are made from long chains of sugars that occur naturally in the skin3.
Voluma is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process called Vycross that helps provide an excellent lifting capacity4. Unlike the other Hyaluronic Acid-based fillers that are injected subcutaneously (between the skin layers), Voluma is injected on top of the bone. This allows it to build volume upward, lifting the cheek.
Typically, most patients will need one syringe in each cheek for the best results. Patients will see results instantly and they will last for a long time.
This cross-linking helps to prevent the product from breaking down, reportedly the results last up to two years. And since it is a HA filler, it can be molded and shaped after injecting.
