Juvéderm Voluma™ XC

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first product FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over 21! It is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area for a more youthful looking face. Results last up to two years.
