Is Voluma™ Right for Me?
Voluma™ XC is a brand new FDA-approved dermal filler specifically created to correct age-related volume loss in the face. JUVA Skin & Laser Center was one of the first practices to offer this revolutionary filler before it was approved for the general medical community in December 2013. Voluma™ uses hyaluronic acid – a hydrating substance naturally found in your skin – to eliminate loose, sagging skin and hollows in the cheek area.
As you age, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid in its deeper layers, weakening the skin’s structure and causing your face to lose volume. This results in the appearance of hollow cheeks and thin, stretched facial skin. If you have this problem, Voluma™ can be an ideal treatment, giving your face a firmer, smoother, and more youthful appearance overall.
During your consultation, one of our experienced New York City cosmetic surgeons will review your medical history to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Voluma™. This treatment may not be the right option if you:
- Have severe allergies and a history of serious reactions (anaphylaxis)
- Are allergic to lidocaine, or to any of the gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make the filler
- Are currently undergoing immunosuppressive therapy
