A: The newest dermal filler to be approved in the United States by the FDA is Juvederm Voluma. This is a new hyaluronic filler from Allergan, but it has some unique characteristics. Juvederm Voluma is manufactured with unique VyCross technology, which makes this filler very robust and long lasting. It is specifically indicated for age-related volume loss. This volume loss is responsible for a hollowing of the face, resulting in the appearance of shadows and hollows that not only make people look tired and gaunt, but this lost volume causes skin and soft tissue to sag and form folds and jowls. Just pulling this loosened skin does not make a patient look younger, just tighter. Performing volume restoration with Juvederm Voluma will give the face more youthful contours and convexities and a true lifting effect to the face without surgery. Patients look rested and refreshed, not pulled and plastic. In fact, Juvederm Voluma is the first dermal filler to actually get specific FDA approval for mid face, cheek volume restoration. While Dr Lupo has been using previously available fillers in this way for years, this is the first filler specifically evaluated and approved by a company. In fact, because Dr Lupo has been performing this cheek restoration technique for so many years, Allergan had invited her pre-approval to be on their advisory board for this product and is an Allergan trainer for other board certified, core aesthetic physicians to teach them best practices using this filler. The best candidates for Juvederm Voluma are patients in their 30-60’s who want a natural, immediate, but long lasting restoration of sinking cheeks and central face aging.
