Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable gel that both lifts and contours the cheeks.
How Voluma works
The deep injection in the cheek area corrects volume loss that is related to age in adults 21 or over. Juvederm Voluma targets the specific areas of the skin that make us appear older. It helps restore our cheeks, cheekbone, and chin. Juvederm Voluma is especially designed for volume loss for the midface area. Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar, known as glycosaminoglycan found throughout the body. This naturally occurring sugar molecule in our skin helps restore lost facial elasticity and supports volume and contours to the face and chin. It rejuvenates volume loss and restores the mid face area. Juvederm Voluma aids in creating a natural, and elastic looking skin. The results are instant, and last for up to 18-24 months.
Like a balloon, our cheeks will begin to deflate and lose plumpness with time. As we age, the first area to show this deflation and droop is the midface area. Dermatologists call youthful faces the “triangle of youth”. Which means if you connect the highest point of the cheeks from the ear to ear, then finish the triangle connection at the chin, the widest part of the face would be the cheeks for a heart-shaped face. However, with age, the triangle reverses, and the widest part is now the chin. Restoring volume in the cheeks lifts the face and defines youth.
