Juvéderm Voluma ® XC

Downtime is minimal and results can last up to 2 years. The injectable gel formula is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in abundance in our skin. As with all other hyaluronic acid products, there is an enzyme available to remove the product should the rare need arise. This makes these products ideal for the anxious patient.

Since Restylane is made from a natural substance found in the body, no pre-testing is required. Restylane produces results that last for several months through its unique ability to bind with water and remain in the skin. The results of this procedure are visible right away, and can last for several months, depending on the condition of the individual patient’s skin.
