TheConsultation explains Volluma XC
Juvederm Voluma XC is an injectable gel dermal filler, specialized for the cheek area. The treatment is developed for people who are unhappy with the thin and sunken appearance of their faces. This worn out appearance occurs due to the lack of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, and is responsible for skin hydration. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water molecules, making skin elastic, smooth, and youthful.
As the aging process progresses, human bodies make less hyaluronic acid, which is visible in the form of folds and wrinkles, and saggy, thin cheeks. Juvederm Voluma XC is a non-invasive treatment which injects hyaluronic acid in gel form directly into the cheeks, restoring the natural plumpness and giving the face a rejuvenated, firm, youthful look. The treatment is an alternative to cosmetic surgery. The effects last up to two years.
