In December 2013, after nearly five years of waiting, Juvederm Voluma (Voluma for short) was approved by the FDA to treat the loss of volume in the cheek area. Already approved in approximately 72 countries, around the world, the U.S. completed its comprehensive testing and gave the manufacturer, Allergan (the company that brought us BOTOX), the nod.
Voluma is referred to as “the liquid facelift,” for creating solutions that were previously best achieved through surgery with considerable side-effects and downtime. While surgery re-sculpts the face, tightening or removing the skin, it’s often what’s already been lost that creates the look of aging. It’s the loss of tissue that gives a flattening appearance to the face. Voluma replaces the loss and restores a more rounded, dimensional look of youth… without surgery.
Voluma is the next generation of one of the most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm. It, too, is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance already found in the body. Voluma “lifts” tissue and provides instant volume to enhance the natural contours of your face and one of the most exciting benefits of this new product is the long-lasting results achieved with just one treatment of Voluma …up to two full years!
Your Laser Skin Care is delighted and proud to be one of the LOS ANGELES and BEVERLY HILLS dermatology centers to offer our patients this new product.
