New Fillers: Voluma and More
Posted by Dr. Joshua Fox on March 11, 2014

Juvederm Voluma XC is a unique new filler from the same company that makes Botox. Unlike a facelift that pulls skin taut through surgery to make the face look younger, Voluma does its lifting from underneath – adding volume in a natural way.


With age the face loses volume, skin begins to sag, and the cheeks start to flatten. A filler like Voluma acts as a minimally invasive facelift by subtly restoring volume to the cheek areas and lifting sagging skin. Moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines that result from aging can be smoothed out as well around the mouth and nose. The result is a more youthful appearance, which in the case of Voluma can last up to two years.

Fillers have varying time frames for seeing results and also for how long they last. Sculptra and Belotero Balance are other options to consider when you talk to one of our dermatologists.

Sculptra works by targeting collagen loss in the skin. It is a gradual process in which areas that have decreased collagen production are filled and restored to a more youthful appearance. Results will become more visible over the course of a few treatments and over a few months as Sculptra stimulates new collagen growth. The new collagen growth will smooth out wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. Sculptra works on all skin types but, as with all cosmetic procedures, you should consult with one of our dermatologists to see if it is right for you.


Belotero Balance is a filler designed to blend into the unique lines of your face. Wrinkles and fine lines that appear as a result of aging can be smoothed out after a treatment, which takes only a few minutes. Belotero Balance, which is made with hyaluronic acid like many fillers, has unique properties that allow it to seamlessly fill in fine lines and the treatment works for most people. Commonly used to treat areas such as smile lines, marionette lines, and the corners of the mouth – Belotero Balance is strong enough for areas like the nasolabial folds and gentle enough for use on the lip.
