For years, the most reliable injectable fillers at our Marietta facial plastic surgery practice focused on treating lines and wrinkles. Although these products created wonderful results for many patients, they didn’t address volume loss, which is another important component of facial aging.
In 2013, the FDA approved JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, an injectable gel filler specifically formulated to plump up the cheeks. The resulting fullness adds a subtle, youthful-looking lift that is the “missing piece” for many people who feel that wrinkle fillers are not enough. We have been using VOLUMA XC at our practice for a couple of months, and since its introduction, its popularity has been rising steadily because word is spreading about how effective and convenient it is.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is approved for use in patients 21 and older who are bothered by diminished facial volume due to age. Like other fillers, VOLUMA XC doesn’t require any downtime, and its results are immediately visible. VOLUMA relies on a special formulation of hyaluronic acid to round out the cheeks, and its beautiful results can last for up to 2 years.
It is also a great option for those who wish to “try on” a new look before committing to surgery. For patients in search of a more permanent solution to a lack of facial volume, we also offer chin and cheek implants. These implants are made of a solid form of silicone that mimics the look and feel of real tissue.
Whether used on its own or in combination with other injectable treatments or surgery, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is sure to become a fixture at both our practice others across the country.
