VOLUMA XC is a hyaluronic acid filler in the Juvederm family. Voluma is exclusively used for the mid-face and is FDA approved for creating volume and immediate lift. Many people begin to loose volume and fat in their cheeks as they age allowing skin to expand, loose elasticity, and start to sag and develop jowls. This causes your face to look sunken and aged. Voluma is injected at deeper depths making it excellent for sculpting and molding the face creating instant volume and continued collagen production. Voluma has the highest lifting capability. Like other fillers Voluma eliminates lines and wrinkles but it specifically creates volume to the highest area of the midface.
Voluma is injected in three areas of the cheek: the apex, apples of the cheek, and the hollows of the cheek. Voluma is unique in its crossed linked capability making it superior in lifting the face. Juvederm Voluma contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Lidocaine numbs the surrounding area to minimize discomfort. Voluma is long lasting and the volumizing effects typically remain up to 2 years.
