Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the only FDA approved filler specifically developed for the cheek area. This new treatment can help correct age-related volume loss, just as JUVÉDERM® can help to smooth away wrinkles and folds in the lower-face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is made with Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS™ technology, an advanced manufacturing process that results in a smooth gel that flows easily and consistently. This unique formulation contributes to the lift capacity to correct volume loss in the cheek area and to the duration of the product.2,3 Additionally, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC contains a small amount of lidocaine which helps to numb the treatment area during the injection procedure.
