Juvederm Voluma XC in Charlotte

cheek-augmentation-voluma-2The use of fillers, such as Juvederm, in the treatment of the aging face has exploded over the past 5 years in Charlotte.  Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm are the most commonly used facial dermal fillers that lift and fill the face with great success.    The newest filler to be approved by the FDA was Juvederm Voluma XC, and we are excited to be first practice in Charlotte to offer this non-surgical injectable to treat aging faces.

Juvederm Voluma is similar to Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm as they are all composed of the same active ingredient, hyaluronic acid also known as HA.  HA is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body and has been safely injected into areas of the face for many years.  Over time, the fillers will slowly dissipate and patients may seek additional treatments anywhere from 6 months to 1.5 years later.

The FDA approved Juvederm Voluma XC to be injected into the cheek region to correct volume loss related to age.  By adding volume to the area with fillers, the cheek region will be lifted and smooth to improve facial harmony and a more youthful appearance.  Juvederm Voluma is unique from previous HA dermal fillers because it has a unique proprietary manufacturing process—Vycross Technology.  Vycross technology improves the stability of the filler for longer lasting results.  In recent clinical trials, up to 50% of patients maintained results two years after their initial treatment.   The trial indicates that Juvederm Voluma may be the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler available on the market today.

There are a few key features of Juvederm Voluma:

1)      Immediate results

2)      Reversible – It can be dissolved

3)      Long lasting – Results lasting up to and longer than two years

4)      Safe when injected by a properly trained professional

When undergoing facial fillers in Charlotte, the most important decision is not selecting the type of product, but selecting the right doctor who will be performing the injection.  Injecting facial fillers is an art that requires medical training and skill.  As a Beverly Hills trained facial plastic surgeon, I have top notch training and results and I perform all the injections in my practice, Carolina Facial Plastics.

Juvederm Voluma is not approved for patients that are pregnant, breast feeding, or have multiple severe allergies.

Carolina Facial Plastics is located in the Southpark region of Charlotte, North Carolina and is proud to be the first practice in the area to offer Juvederm Voluma.  Please contact our office at (704) 323-5090 to see if you would be a candidate for Juvederm Voluma.
