Voluma

    Voluma (Juvederm XC Voluma) was approved by the FDA in 2013 though readily available in many countries for quite some time. It is a hyaluronic acid based filler. It is currently the first and only filler specicfically approved for cheek augmentation. It is a more viscous (thicker) filler than regular Juvederm and therefore there are certain off label areas where it could be and shouldn’t be used. The manufacturer states that the products effects can last as long as 2 years. Because of the viscosity of the product and the need for injection through a larger gauge needle the side effect profile though the same as all the HA fillers is a bit more exaggerated. Voluma is generally priced higher than the other available HA fillers.
