Juvederm Voluma® XC is a hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to volumize the cheeks. As we age, there is a natural loss of volume in the face over time. Juvederm Voluma® XC helps replace the lost volume in the mid-face and gives you a more rejuvenated look. A treatment with Juvederm Voluma® XC will provide you with a nice lift and contour to the cheeks. Results can last up to 2 years with full correction. Juvederm Voluma® XC is also used to create a more defined jawline and replace volume in the temples.
