What is Juvederm and Voluma?

What is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It is extracted and reformulated to provide structural filling in areas of the face that are aging.

 

When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.

 

The two most popular products are Juvederm and Voluma which we use most commonly here at Augusta Plastic Surgery. We have found they provide long lasting results and minimal if any internal scarring or tissue reaction seen in other fillers.
