Juvéderm Voluma® XC in Minneapolis-St. Paul
What is Juvéderm Voluma® XC?
As we age, our cheeks lose volume, causing the skin to flatten and sag. Juvéderm Voluma® XC is made to add volume under the skin to contour and lift the mid-face area. This dermal filler is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that adds volume to the skin.
