How does JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC work?
As we age we lose volume in our face from decreased amounts of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and fat. This volume loss can make our faces look shallow and create hollow areas under the eyes. It may also increase the number and impact of skin wrinkles as the same volume of skin is covering a smaller volume of facial structure. Made from a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC replaces the loss volume, and adds volume to areas of the face typically fuller in our youth. Replacing the lost volume can restore a more youthful appearance and improve the appearance of wrinkles.
