JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is an FDA approved dermal filler manufactured by Allergan, Inc. Juvederm Voluma is a smooth-consistency gel that restores volume to the cheeks, creating a lift of the cheeks. It is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. In terms of the skin, HA's role is to deliver nutrients and hydration, and act as a cushioning agent. Young, healthy skin contains a lot of HA, but factors that include aging and sun exposure reduce the amount, causing skin to lose structure and volume. Often referred to as Liquid Facelift, Voluma is an excellent filler enjoyed by women and men over the age of 21. A younger person may choose Voluma to create a high cheek bone look. As we age and lose volume, Voluma is used to restore the youthful appearance without changing your natural form.
