JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is a dermal filler that is designed to enhance hollowed-out cheeks. Over time, our bodies begin to lose elasticity and volume, and both men and women alike begin to look older than they truly are. However, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC can help! Enjoy the subtle, natural enhancement of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC at the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa.

1. It Is a Hyaluronic Acid Filler

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid fillers are reabsorbed by the body, and they typically don’t cause any adverse reactions because they use the same chemical and molecular structure as an enzyme that’s already present in your body. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC simply adds moisture to the skin for a smoother, more supple appearance.

2. First to Be FDA Approved

This filler is the first non-surgical hyaluronic acid filler to be FDA approved for filling and plumping the cheeks and chin of both men and women over the age of 21. Although other dermal fillers on the market have been approved by the FDA, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is the first volumizing filler.

3. A Little Goes a Long Way

It is true that JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC may be a little bit more expensive than other dermal fillers on the market, but because of its thickness, it isn’t broken down by the body as quickly, which ultimately leads to it lasting longer. So, while the upfront cost may be more, the results will last you a longer time. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC typically lasts up to two years and does not need as many syringes per treatment session.

4. Known As the Liquid Facelift

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is specifically designed for adding volume to the cheeks. However, it can be used for any kind of mid-face rejuvenation, like increasing volume in the nose, temples, or the chin (to augment the chin, which increases projection). JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with others to help with facial balancing. Many patients choose this option before undergoing facelift surgery. It is an alternative enhancement treatment that provides great results without surgery.

5. Goes Deeper Into the Skin

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC is injected deeper into the skin, so it is imperative that you choose a qualified injector to perform your service. At the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa, we have the knowledge and experience to put you at ease with your treatment so that you can be happy with your results.
