The company that produces Botox, Juvederm, and Latisse, recently announced that they received FDA approval for JUVADERM VOLUMA XC. It's the first and only filler approved to temporarily correct volume loss in the cheek area due to aging and is now available at Jandali Plastic Surgery in Fairfield County, Connecticut in the Bridgeport area. Cheeks flatten out and droop over time due to the aging process and gravity. These injections last up to 2 years creating fuller, more youthful cheeks in the cheekbone area. Juvderm Voluma is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring protein found in the human body. Hyaluronic acid absorbs water and this hydration is what gives volume to the area in which it is injected. In the clinical trial an instant filling of the cheek area, which also indirectly lifts the nasolabial fold area, was noted by patients and physicians. Juvederm Voluma has been used with much success in Europe since 2005. Allergan's manufacturing process allows the hyaluronic acid gel to flow smoothly, making injections as comfortable as possible. Also, the injections contain a small amount of lidocaine, which helps to numb the treatment area during the injection procedure.
