Synergy Skin and Laser Center is now offering Voluma XC, the first and only filler FDA approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift.Voluma is the newest member of the Juvederm family and we are excited to offer the revolutionary new filler Juvederm Voluma XC to our patients. It is designed to restore facial contours that have been negatively affected by signs of aging: volume loss. Voluma rejuvenates your facial contours at a structural level.
Aging causes the face to sag and hollow due to the redistribution of fat and the changes that occur to the facial skeleton. Other products only smooth away wrinkles and creases (considered two-dimensional) Voluma takes on a more complex, three-dimensional issue of volume loss for a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.
One of the main changes that occur to our face over time is volume-loss. Our cheeks for example are generally at their most voluminous and smooth when we are babies. A young-looking face can be compared to an egg, with the narrower part of the egg pointing down. When we are young we have a fine, defined jaw line with smooth contours, and our cheeks and upper-face are full of volume. The overall shape & contour of the face however changes with age. As we get older the egg can start to turn upside down. This is because over time we gradually loose facial volume, our skin becomes thinner and the effects of gravity can become apparent.
Juvederm Voluma is a smooth injectable gel that is made from a natural complex sugar called hyaluronic acid (HA). Found within the tissues of living cells including human skin. HA assists in skin hydration by attracting and holding water. It also combines with collagen and elastin to help provide skin structure and elasticity.
This filler lasts up to 2 years
