Patient Pictures Shown Before and After Treatments
Many people believe that the only sign of an aging face is wrinkles, when in reality, age-related volume loss can cause the face to lose definition, balance and change shape, all of which can make a person appear older than their years.
In October 2013, the FDA approved a new hyaluronic acid dermal filler from Allergan called Juvederm Voluma. This unique filler is manufactured with patented Vycross™ technologythat delivers an instant, yet long-lasting, lift and fill to sunken cheeks and to define the jaw line. It is specifically indicated for age-related volume loss of the mid face that causes the skin to sag and creates a tired and gaunt appearance. Performing volume restoration with Juvederm Voluma gives the face a more youthful contour and a smooth, natural-looking lift without surgery.
Like other volumizing fillers, Juvederm Voluma treatments require an advanced injector since the technique is very intricate and an artistic eye is necessary to avoid any complications. Because of Dr.Lupo’s previous experience and knowledge with dermal fillers, she was chosen by Allergan to be on the Juvederm Voluma advisory board and to be a trainer of other board certified, core aesthetic physicians to teach them the best practices for this filler. Even though Juvederm Voluma can be dissolved by hyaluronidase if any complications occur, all patients should be treated by a board certified physician who has specific training for this filler.
With Juvederm Voluma, patients look rested and refreshed, never pulled or plastic. The best candidates for Juvederm Voluma are patients in their 30s-60s who want long-lasting restoration to sinking cheeks and central-face aging with a no-downtime treatment.
In the hands of an expert injector, male patients do not have to fear to look fake, weird or feminine

Dr. Lupo discusses the benefits of Juvederm Voluma
Voluma is a cross linked hyaluronic acid that is the first in kind to be approved by the FDA of improvement of the cheek. It is FDA approved as a cheek liter. This is a wonderful new hyaluronic acid that we use in our practice, along the jaw line to give a lift – and it gives a more youthful appearance to the cheek bones, when Voluma is used in conjunction with other devices such as Xceles to lift the brow and define the jaw line and perhaps neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, so you can get a face lift like effect without surgery.
You can go in that canine facet, you can do this and kind of give a lifting effect to the nose, and you don’t have to worry about any blood vessel. You can pivot this way and you can do some of that D3 position that gives a little bit of a lift, okay.
Avoid these medications for at least two weeks prior to injections:
Aspirin or Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, “G” supplements (ginko, ginseng, garlic), St. John's Wort and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like Celebrex, as they may cause thinning of the blood.
