Plastic surgeons have known this for decades. A well-performed facelift actually repositions the cheek fat that sags as a result of gravity over time. Just to be clear, Voluma can’t reposition cheek fat, but its thicker cross-linked formula adds volume in a way that restores a more-youthful contour to the midface (or a more pleasing Ogee curve if you speak medicalese.) So if you’re not quite ready for a facelift but have started noticing some changes, Juvederm Voluma could be just what you’re looking for.
The subtle lift achieved with Juvederm Voluma XC can make a dramatic difference. Patients surveyed in the clinical trials said they look up to 5 years younger. The best part? Juvederm Voluma XC lasts up to two years.
A side-benefit of restoring volume to the cheek area is that it can also improve wrinkles and lines in other areas of the face, particularly the nasolabial folds and around the eyes. This varies from patient to patient depending on the depth and location of the wrinkles.
It’s becoming clear that the aesthetic non-surgical field is evolving. Rather than just chasing individual wrinkles and filling them in, we can now take a more holistic approach by improving the 3-D effects of aging in the midface first and filling the rest in later. So you can see how well Juvederm Voluma works hand-in-hand with its sister product Juvederm and why we are delighted to have it in our anti-aging arsenal.
