Announcing Juvederm Voluma:
The Best New Injectable Filler for Cheek Augmentation and Midfacial Hollowing
As we age, we loose the youthful “Ogee Curve” seen on oblique profile views of attractive individuals. An Ogee Curve refers to an “S” curve. The cheeks flatten, the midface looses volume and sags, and hollowness affects the lower eyelid and anterior cheek. Gravity and tissue sagging creates jowls and accentuates nasolabial creases.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. It is a hyaluronic acid filler manufactured by Allergan utilizing a new “Vycross” cross-linking technology which extends the longevity of the product while decreasing risks for swelling. Although it was just FDA approved this month for use in the United States, It has provided safe and effective results in other countries since 2005.
The procedure is performed in the office setting and is well tolerated. The product contains lidocaine for patient comfort. The cheeks and midface are enhanced, providing a subtle lift to the face, decreasing the look of nasolabial folds and lower eyelid hollows, also called “tear troughs”. Results last 2 years. Studies report that patients look 5 years younger for 6 months after treatment and 3 years younger, 2 years after treatment. Results are natural, creating a youthful and attractive facial contour. Downtime is less than 24 hours.
