One of the early signs of aging is volume loss in the upper part of the face from a combination of fat and bone absorption, which results in sagging skin and hollowing that increases slowly over time. Historically, this was addressed with surgery to tighten the overlying skin and lift the deeper soft tissues. More recently, volumizing fillers have been used to provide a similar ‘lift’ without surgery. The goal is to restore volume in the midface to create a natural, youthful face.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years. Unlike other fillers commonly used to treat the midface, Voluma is hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. Juvederm Voluma is unique in that the HA is cross-linked through a process called Vycross that helps provide an excellent lifting capacity and can be molded and shaped into the desired contour after injection.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH A JUVEDERM VOLUMA TREATMENT?
Voluma is administered to targeted areas through a smooth-flowing injection, allowing the Dr. Sullivan full control to achieve the desired look. Voluma is formulated with Lidocaine (an anesthetic) to reduce discomfort by numbing the injection area during treatment.
The procedure is non-invasive with minimal downtime or recovery. The total treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes and results are nearly instant. Call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sullivan to see if Juvederm Voluma is right for you! 410-571-1280
