What is Juvederm Voluma®?


Dermal fillers are delivered by injections to add volume to the face or to plump up scars, marionette lines, laugh lines or lips.  They are a popular form of skin rejuvenation to soften fine lines and restore youthful contours. Using the latest state of the art technology, our professional, experienced and skilled staff will always provide an excellent, appropriate and natural-looking results. Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation. Volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years. If you are looking for a non- surgical face lift or you just want to smooth out a few fine lines or fill in deep set wrinkles, injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having the freedom of expression.

As skin ages, it begins to lose collagen filled with hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA add structure and volume to the face, therefore a lack of HA causes the skin to sag and wrinkle – that’s where dermal fillers come into play.
