Correcting volume loss in the Mid Face
Nothing is quite so gratifying for a woman or man wanting to instantly and noticeably look younger than the use of a dermal filler. Dermal fillers have been around since 1981 and are one of the few cosmetic enhancement procedures you can have that produce instantaneous results. Sunken, sagging, and wrinkled skin is immediately eliminated with the injection of a dermal filler, and the results can last from months to years. Using dermal fillers can produce similar results to a facelift but without the surgery.
Bovine collagen was one of the first FDA approved dermal fillers, however a variety of materials have been subsequently approved for use in facial rejuvenation services such as the ones offered at our office. Different types of fillers are used nowadays, such as Hyaluronic acid, Poly-L-Lactic Acid, and Calcium Hydroxylapatite. Each has its own particular areas of specialty and its own benefits. It is up to the individual and their cosmetic physician to determine the best dermal filler for their beauty needs.

Juvederm Voluma FAQ's
What are the benefits of Juvederm Voluma?
The Juvederm Voluma XC injectable gel is an FDA-approved filler to add an instant volume to all three areas of the cheek, and also smoothes out wrinkles and folds around the mouth area by adding the volume to the upper face. The results of the treatments last for up to 2 years with minimal side effects.
Skin changes over time as the body ages reducing the hyaluronic acid in the skin. This creates visible changes in volume and structure, causing wrinkles and sagging in areas like your cheeks. Juvederm Voluma gel is manufactured using the VYCROSS process to create a product that provides natural, smooth skin in look and feel.
Juvederm XC is also available in two formulas: the Juvederm Ultra XC which provides a versatile agent for contouring and providing volume in wrinkles and folds around the mouth and naso-labial folds, or Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, which is a heavier formula to provide volume and deep wrinkle correction.
This filler is different from the ones currently on the market and offers a remarkable breakthrough for the beauty industry. Formulated with lidocaine to assist in providing a comfortable treatment, Juvederm Voluma XC has been proven to be a safe and effective alternative for persons of any color.
How safe is the procedure?
The procedure is quick and safe. It is a non-surgical treatment, so you can make your appointment at any time of the day and continue with your regular routine. The injection process usually takes about 15-30 minutes.
