Candidates For Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC
The ideal Juvéderm® Voluma™ XC candidate is someone who has a thin cheek area, and this includes younger and older patients. For younger patients, Voluma™ XC enhances your cheekbones and the apples of your cheeks. This balances your facial features.
Voluma™ XC is an excellent anti-aging product for patients who have fat loss or shifting in the middle part of the face. Fat loss reduces the natural contours. Fat shifting causes wrinkles and sagging in the lower part of your face. Adding volume to your cheeks with Voluma™ XC “lifts” the lower third of your face for a more youthful appearance.
