Wrinkles are only one part of the aging process. Cheeks lose volume and flatten with age as well, and this loss of volume can make us look older. Juvederm Voluma® XC enhances facial contour and creates a more youthful profile and appearance. Voluma enhancements are not only instant but with optimal correction, can last for up to two years.

Voluma is a hyaluronic acid product which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, so there is no need for an allergy skin test.
