First there was Juvederm Ultra, then came Ultra Plus a thicker version, and now Allergan has given us VOLUMA.
“All three products carry the XC designation indicating they contain Lidocaine a local anesthetic that makes the injections virtually painless,” states Dr. Craig Inger, MD, a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and owner of DermaCure of Valencia.
“All three are composed of hyaluronic acid which is a substance found in abundance in our own skin and cartilage. These injections are manufactured without any animal products, and we have never seen an allergic reaction. Because these products are reversible with an injection of the enzyme hyaluronidase, the results are practically fool proof in the right hands.”

Juvederm Ultra has been available for over twelve years. Being the thinnest of the trio, it is ideal for use in the lips, correcting nasal defects, fine lines on the face and neck and even to plump sagging ear lobs. It can reduce the appearance of acne, chicken pox and other scars. Except for lips, Ultra will last nine to twelve months.
“Juvederm Ultra Plus arrived about five years ago. It is a thicker version of Ultra. As such it has great value in areas like the naso-labial folds [smile lines], marionette lines and for chin augmentation. Again, it is reversible and can last up to fifteen months,” Dr. Ingber explains.
The 3-dimentional approach now includes the only FDA approved filler for mid-face volume loss with Voluma XC. Voluma XC, being introduced in December, is an amazing product. “Amazing” being the word used by most patients after seeing the instant results.
Dr. Ingber assures, “It is specifically FDA approved for use in the cheeks and upper face. When injected correctly it produces an instant lifting of the entire face including the naso-labial folds, marionette lines and even lifts the corners of the mouth. Voluma’s unique cross-linking of its molecules allows the FDA to state it gives a 2 year improvement. In fact 72% of the women in the studies said they looked 5 years younger at 6 months and 3 years younger at 2 years.”

Craig Ingber, MD, board certified facial plastic surgeon at DermaCure of Valencia and a black diamond injector of the Juvederm family, has already injected 32 syringes of this latest miracle and proclaims it as a “face lift” in a syringe.
Voluma XC is injected deeper in the face than other fillers and should be used by physicians like facial plastic surgeons with an intimate knowledge of the facial structures.
Voluma is now available at Dermacure of Valencia.
