Age-Related Volume Loss
Age-related volume loss can lead to sagging skin and hollows in the face, giving a fatigued and aged appearance. Options like Juvederm Voluma XC can help the position of the fat pads and provide support and structue.
JUVÉDERM® fillers, made with HA, can effectively address this issue by adding volume back into the facial tissue and filling deep wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The result is a more youthful, refreshed look that can be achieved without surgical intervention.
Keep in mind, not everyone is a candidate for JUVÉDERM® and it is always recommended to talk to your healthcare provider about your individual health history and concerns.
Facial wrinkles, such as deep creases and folds in the skin, can be caused by volume loss, facial muscle contractions, sun damage, and environmental factors.

As a naturally occurring skin component, HA offers several benefits when used in injectable fillers like JUVÉDERM® ultra and JUVÉDERM vollure, including a reduced risk of allergic reactions and a smoother, more natural-looking result compared to other types of injectable fillers.
The effects of HA fillers such as JUVÉDERM vollure xc injectable gel are temporary, typically lasting anywhere from 6 to 24 months, ensuring that patients can enjoy their rejuvenated appearance for an extended period of time before requiring additional treatment.
