Non-surgical option for volume restoration in the face is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC by Allergan. 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!).
*Individual results may vary
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC 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. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel. The good news is that JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC lasts 2 years! (That’s double the time of JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and Ultra Plus). Like other hyaluronic acid products, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be dissolved in the extremely unlikely event that you don’t like the results. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has been used in Europe for years, and now New York City can join in on the fun!

Who is a Good Candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
The best candidates for facial fillers are patients with reasonable expectations. Facial fillers can give a natural, rejuvenated look, but do not produce the dramatic results of surgical procedures such as facelift. Injectable fillers can be a perfect compliment to surgery or other procedures. When performed well, fillers can give you a very natural result with minimal downtime.
How is the Procedure Performed?
After a consultation, Dr. Liotta will help you decide which fillers are best for you. Procedures are performed in the office, using either ice or local numbing blocks. Topical numbing creams or can also used when necessary or requested. Dr. Liotta uses a combination of needles to inject, and non-traumatic microcannulas.
What is the Recovery?
Recovery depends on the type of injectable, area of injection, and on your ability to heal. In general, there is minimal downtime. Swelling and injection site redness usually subside in less than an hour. Bruising is variable and can sometimes last for up to a week. Some injectables are reversible in the unlikely event that you don’t like the results. Depending upon the type of filler used, and the area treated, results can last from 6 months to 2 years.
