Juvéderm® Voluma™ is a new, FDA-approved dermal filler formulated specifically to add volume to the face around the cheeks and chin. This is the only injectable gel created to provide a subtle, natural enhancement to the mid-face, addressing changes in definition and volume that occur over time, including loss of bone structure, not just soft tissue structure. Juvéderm® Voluma™ can help restore more youthful contours by plumping up an area that so often loses volume as part of the aging process. It can also return a firmer shape to the jaw line when some laxity has set in.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ is not only an effective treatment method for these problem areas, but it is long lasting as well. In many patients, the results will last for a period of up to 18 months.
The active ingredient in Juvéderm® Voluma™ is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance naturally produced within the skin. As we get older, the levels of HA present in the skin begin to decline, as does the collagen, resulting in a loss of volume and firmness, leaving sunken or sagging cheeks. Juvéderm® Voluma™ integrates into your own existing collagen and elastin in the skin tissue to offer greater support and elasticity. This can provide a noticeable smoothing and firming to the skin and lend the facial structure a more substantial definition.
Juvéderm® Voluma™ is the latest in the Juvederm® line of dermal fillers. These various formulas have a successful history of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the skin and rejuvenating the face.
