Juvederm Voluma® XC is an injectable used to correct age-related volume deficits in the cheeks and other mid-facial areas for adults over the age of 21. It is created with hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the skin.
Soft, clear in appearance and biodegradable, hyaluronic acid is found in a range of injections and fillers. As men and women age, hyaluronic acid is lost, causing the skin to lose structure and volume. This can create wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm Voluma® is the first and only injectable gel that is FDA-approved to instantly correct age-related volume loss. Creating facial volume with its deep injection treatment, the contour and lift will last for up to two years with optimal treatment. If you’re looking to improve cheek volume and enhance the overall youthfulness of the face, Voluma is now available at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists.
Dual board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Marotta can use Voluma
to treat the following:
- Correct age-related issues for a more youthful, fresh appearance
- Create a smoother contour of the facial skin
- Increase cheek volume
- Reverse sagging skin and deeper skin issues.
Juvederm Voluma® XC is injected by Dr. Marotta at his Long Island location using a small, fine needle. Although a patient may experience minimal discomfort during the injection, topical anesthetics, ice or local anesthetics can be used to eliminate any pain afterward.
After the first injection, a brief pause will be taken to allow the lidocaine in the injection to take effect. Voluma is then injected in small amounts over the treatment area until the desired effect is achieved. A massage technique may be used during this time to ensure that the injection is distributed evenly.
Immediately following the procedure, an ice pack may be applied for a brief period to minimize swelling and reduce pain. Although you may experience redness or swelling at the injection site, this will fade with time.
Patient who receive Voluma injections say that they felt they appeared as much as five years younger just six months after treatment. More than 75 percent reported overall satisfaction with their appearance two years after treatment.
