When I sent an email last month announcing the first anniversary of Maine Laser Skin Care’s new location in the Lee Farm Mall in Augusta, I neglected to highlight another important first anniversary. November 2014 was also the first anniversary of the FDA’s approval of Juvederm Voluma XC.
As you may know from previous newsletters and our website, Voluma is the first and only filler approved by the FDA for age-related volume loss in the midface and cheek areas. One of the consequences of the aging process on the face is the loss of the round “apple” cheeks, which gives a youthful smoothness and lift to the face.
When that “apple” flattens out, the cheek then appears sunken. The flattening combined with the effects of gravity cause the skin of the lower face to sag more.
Voluma instantly adds volume to the cheek area, restoring the “apple” contour to the midface and subtly lifting the lower face. While every person’s face is different, most individuals who require volume replacement in the midface area need 2 syringes of this filler.
Although Voluma has only been used in the US for the past year, this filler has been used in Europe for many years. European studies has shown that Voluma injections result in a natural look and feel to the face that lasts up to 2 years. 6 months after receiving the treatment, 90% of patients reported that they looked up to 5 years younger.
Over the past year, I have had excellent results injecting Voluma on many patients, all of whom have been very satisfied. If you ever wanted to defy gravity and especially its effects on your face over the years, Voluma may be the right choice for you.
