VOLUMA® is the newest member of the Juvéderm® family. It is designed to restore facial contours that have been negatively affected by a long-neglected sign of aging: volume loss.
Aging does more to your face than add a few wrinkles here and there; it causes the face to sag and hollow due to the re-distribution of fat and the changes that occur to the facial skeleton. While other products only smooth away wrinkles and creases (considered to be a “two-dimensional” concern because it only affects the skin’s surface), VOLUMA® takes on the more complex, three-dimensional issue of volume loss for a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.
Juvéderm® VOLUMA® is the only facial filler of its kind currently available that has been created to restore facial contours affected by the loss of volume.
VOLUMA® is able to achieve natural-looking, long lasting results because of patented VYCROSS™ technology.
What Is VYCROSS™ Technology and LMWHA?
VOLUMA® is a filler that is formulated with 90% low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (LMWHA) and only 10% high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (HMWHA). Not only is it smoother so that it is:
- easily injected into the skin to minimize your discomfort during treatment
- mouldable to your facial contours
- natural-looking and feeling
in addition, its high-viscosity allows it to retain its molecular structure after treatment, even when injected deeper into the skin, or below the skin. With a higher degree of crosslinking, VOLUMA® allows for:
- Long-lasting results because of a higher resistance to degradation caused by free radicals and enzymes – results have been recorded to last up to 18 months
- Predictability in achieving the desired improvement because of its cohesivity
- Capable of providing the optimal lift of sagging contours
A recent clinical study performed by a group of Canadian dermatologists and a plastic surgeon found LMWHA to have several advantages in the treatment of volume loss, including a high malleability to better improve facial contours, minimum swelling and immediate patient satisfaction.
This is the primary difference between VOLUMA® and the other members of the Juvéderm® family, Ultra and Ultra Plus, which are based on 100% HMWHA – perfect for wrinkles, but inadequate for treating serious volume loss. Simply put, VOLUMA® VYCROSS™ technology rejuvenates your facial contours at a structural level. It provides maximum support where needed to achieve optimal aesthetic rejuvenation.
