Elite Facial Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce the addition of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC to the menu of dermal fillers available at their practice in Tampa. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It was approved for use in the United States by the FDA in October 2013 and is now offered locally at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery.
VOLUMA XC Restores Volume to Cheeks
Juvederm VOLUMA was specifically designed to restore volume to the cheeks and chin to provide more youthful plumpness to the face. As we grow older, it is common to lose facial fat in the cheek area which results in a sunken and often unhealthy appearance. Over the years, facial fat tends to migrate south as a result of gravity. Also, as we age, the skin loses its elastic properties and can no longer hold the underlying fat and tissue in place. This results in a hollowing of the cheeks and a thickening of the jaw. VOLUMA can add a subtle lift and contour without the need for surgery. This will create a naturally younger profile by reestablishing the proper proportions of the cheeks.
VOLUMA XC is Provides Long Lasting Results
JuvédermVOLUMA® with is an injectable hyaluronic acid volumiser that adds fullness to areas that need a little more support or enhancement. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body that is found in the skin, soft connective tissue such as the cartilage or joint fluids, as well as in the fluid of the eyes. This ingredient has been used safely for years in a variety of injectable dermal filler products such as Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero. It is generally made into a gel which is injected into the deeper layers of the skin. Once administered, it adds size and plumpness to support facial features that have lost volume due to the normal aging process. It also helps improve the skin’s elasticity by drawing water back towards the skin’s surface. The results of a dermal filler injection will appear within days of the treatment and can last for anywhere from three months to eighteen months depending on the formula. VOLUMA is one of the longest lasting fillers dermal fillers and can last up to two years before another treatment is required. The new filler has been specially formulated to provide a natural lift to the cheeks and restore the contours of youth.
