As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and your skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic gel that is deeply injected for cheek augmentation and used to correct age-related volume deficit in the mid-face region that lasts up to 2 years.
The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by retaining water, and act as a cushioning agent. The injectable gel adds volume to the facial tissue and restores a smoother contour and more youthful appearance. In addition, this product contains lidocaine for improved comfort for patients during treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC works on a different area of the face than JUVÉDERM® XC. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses, while JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC adds volume to the cheek area.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is manufactured using VYCROSS technology to give a specialized smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results at the treatment site.
