Juvederm Voluma: New NonSurgical Facelift Option
ARC Plastic Surgery is excited to announce Juvederm Voluma XC, the first and only FDA-approve facial filler to correct age related volume loss in the cheeks, available in our office now!
Juvederm Voluma XC is a nonsurgical facial filler using hyaluronic acid, a compound derived from a complex sugar that is naturally present in the human body. Like other hyaluronic acid injection, Voluma can be shaped and molded after the injection to perfect the contours of the face, and it has the ability to be reversed if needed. And like other nonsurgical facelift procedures, there is virtually no recovery time. Some patients may experience swelling and bruising, but that’s it!
Voluma XC is injected deeper in the tissue, below the blood vessels, so many people have significantly less bruising than traditional, shallower, facial fillers. Voluma can be shape contour the face in way that other facial fillers do not. It can literally lift the face, creating a naturally youthful look and a facelift that’s anatomically correct. Its thicker cross-linked formula adds volume in a way that restores a more youthful contour to the cheek (or a more pleasing Ogee curve if you speak medical-ese). While it can be more expensive up front, Voluma results last up to two years, making it more economical in the end.
Dr. Jeremy White is specially trained in the use and application of Juvederm Voluma. There’s an artistic element to a good facelift. Dr. White’s passion for the art and science of plastic surgery gives him an artist’s eye when it comes to creating a natural, youthful contour.
A side-benefit of restoring volume to the cheek area is that it can also improve wrinkles and lines in other areas of the face, particularly the around the eyes, nose and corners of the mouth. So if you’re not quite ready for a facelift but have started noticing some changes, Juvederm Voluma could be just what you’re looking for.
