Voluma Now Available at CAPS!

Voluma, the revolutionary new injectable filler from Allergan, is now available at CAPS! This amazing product is part of the Juvéderm family of products. Each of these is made with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body. As we age, our bodies break down HA found in the cheeks, leaving them with a hollow, aged look. With Juvéderm Voluma XC, patients experience instant results in restoring their facial profile.

Allergan, the maker of Voluma, is already a popular choice among CAPS clientele for their flagship products: Juvéderm and Botox® Cosmetic. Both of these are used to remove wrinkles and fine lines in other areas of the face. Voluma builds on that by adding volume. This is the first product that it is FDA approved as an injectable for the cheeks, and its results last up to an unprecedented two years with optimal treatment. The majority of patients in the clinical trial experienced a curvier, more youthful profile for the full twenty-four months.

The injectable’s effects are three-fold, and its side effects are minimal. An injection of Voluma targets all three major areas of the cheek: Apex, Apple, and Hollow. This fills each with a proportional amount of gel to create a natural look. In the first weeks after injection, some patients may experience redness, lumps/bumps, and moderate tenderness. Because HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body, there is no risk of rejection.

Consult with one of our four board certified doctors to learn more about Voluma and what it can do for you. Call (614) 246-6900 to set up an appointment at either our Upper Arlington or Easton Town Center locations. Everyone at CAPS couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this to the Columbus, Ohio, area!
