Why not give yourself the gift of younger looking skin this year?

Published on November 25, 2013

We’ve all heard of popular facial fillers like Botox or have tried them ourselves. Used to help refresh the look of your skin and instantly take years off your face, these facelifts in a needle have become all the rage among men and women who want to turn back the hands of time without going under the knife. And according to cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abegel, it looks like an all-new filler is injecting itself into the beauty market.

So What Juvederm is exactly?

Meet Juvederm Voluma XC, the first and only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift that helps to restore contour and a more youthful profile. Lasting for up to 2 years, it is available only to patients over the age of 21.

At first glance, Juvederm Voluma XC appears to be just your average dermatological filler. But not only is this injectable being used to fill in those pesky fine lines and wrinkles that show up as the skin loses its firmness with age, but this new wave of surgery-free skin care actually reshapes the face!

Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel explains it like this: “When you look at a beautiful face, that middle part of the face, has this beautiful 3-D curve and that’s where Juvederm Voluma XC is injected.”

For those who crave the chiseled bone structure of celebs like Angelina Jolie or simply want to reclaim their own wonderful sculptural look from youthful days gone by, Juvederm Voluma XC just might be the way to achieve the same effect without having to undergo plastic surgery. What’s great is that it’s actually like getting a cheek implant without the surgery.

Is it affordable?

The price of Juvedem Voluma XC is much more affordable than surgery as well. With the filler lasting for up to 2 years after the procedure, the cost of the treatment is very affordable, depending on the amount of filler you need.

After just 24 hours, patients are typically able to resume their daily activities as usual. In terms of side effects, your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon describes any discomfort as moderate, lasting anywhere from just 2 to 4 weeks.


The most common side effects of the Juvedem Voluma XC treatment may include temporary reactions at the treatment area such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
