The gorgeous French actress, Catherine Deneuve is famously quoted as having said, “After a certain age, a woman has to choose between her fanny and her face.” While that may have been mostly true in the 1960s, there are now quick and easy lunchtime answers to the face/fanny conundrum. The newest non-surgical option is Juvederm Voluma XC by Allergan, which just became available in the USA, and NYC, this past December. It is the first and only filler FDA approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. As we age, we tend to lose volume in the cheek area, and the natural fat pad of the cheek begins to drop, accentuating the nasolabial fold (thanks a lot, Gravity!).
Voluma adds volume back into the cheek area (up where is should be), resulting in a subtle, natural lift that helps restore a well-rested, youthful look to the midface and improve the appearance of the nasolabial folds. Juvederm Voluma is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel. The good news is that Juvéderm Voluma lasts 2 years! (That’s double the time of Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus). Like other hyaluronic acid products, Juvederm Voluma can be dissolved in the extremely unlikely event that you don’t like the results. Voluma has been used in Europe for years, and now New York City can join in on the fun! Contact us for more information, or to book your appointment. Downtime is minimal, and you can be back to work after lunch. What have you got to lose? Your face (and fanny) will thank you!
