New filler can lift sagging cheeks

WASHINGTON, D.C.; Oct. 23, 2013

The Food & Drug Administration has Ok'd Juvederm Voluma XC gel facial filler.

It's the first one approved to help restore shape & volume to the cheeks.

As a person ages, the cheek area loses volume. So those once-cheery cheeks flatten, causing facial skin to droop & sag.

The new Juvederm Voluma XC gel filler is injected deep to provide instant volume, and, because it's thicker, it can last up to 2 years.

The most common side effects of the product are temporary reactions at the injection site, such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, and itching.
