Juvederm Voluma XC Back to Prior Page
There is a remarkable new hyaluronic acid filler from Allergan, the same company that makes Juvederm XC Ultra, Juvederm XC Ultra Plus, and Botox. Dr. Cook has been thrilled with the results she is seeing with our local Maui patients.
Since it received clearance by the FDA in 2013, it has become one of Dr. Cook's favorites. She is not the only one singing Voluma’s praises. New Beauty picked Voluma as the “Best Anti-Aging Treatment” and Allure gave it the 2014 “Beauty Breakthrough Award”.
So why all the excitement about another hyaluronic filler (HA) and what makes Juvederm Voluma XC so different from other fillers: Voluma Lifts and Lasts
Juvederm Voluma XC is the first HA filler cleared by the FDA to restore volume loss in the cheeks and lasts for
2 years. This new thicker cross-linked formula adds volume, restoring a more youthful contour to the central face. Therefore, Juvederm Voluma XC lifts while Juvederm XC Ultra and Ultra Plus fills.
So if you are not quite ready for a facelift but have started noticing some changes including volume loss and "sagginess", Juvederm Voluma XC may be the right option for you.
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.
