Voluma XC is the latest soft-tissue filler comprised of hyaluronic acid. It is specifically designed to restore volume in areas of loss. San Francisco’s Dr. Evan Ransom suggests this injectable as a cheaper, non-surgical option for those looking for a subtle lift. As we age, facial fat loss, gravity, and diminished skin elasticity all lead to a narrower, less youthful look.
Voluma XC can restore balance to the face and a more youthful profile for up to two years by restoring areas that have lost volume due to aging or extreme weight loss. The result is a softer and more youthful appearance.
Voluma is used differently from the other Juvéderm products, such as Juvéderm XC, in that it focuses on facial volume rather than wrinkle correction, specifically in the cheek area. By contrast, Juvéderm XC is intended more superficially and tends to target surface irregularities.
Dr. Ransom recommends that specific fillers be used in certain areas of the face based on the different thickness and longevity of each filler formulation.
