The latest facial filler on the market is taking the cosmetic world by storm. It’s called Juvederm Voluma XC, but it’s how long this filler lasts that has people flocking to doctors’ offices looking for treatments.

Studies show that volume should remain in place for a couple of years. While the material in the filler – hyaluronic acid – is not new, it’s how this particular product is made to last longer that’s pleasing both doctors and their patients.

"It’s getting closer to filling the void for what we call the perfect filler," said Dr. Michael Sinclair, a specialist in Wellington. Picture two balls of yarn, both about the same size. One is kind of loosely wound, the other, tightly wound. The one more tightly wound will take a lot longer to unravel, and that’s the science behind this filler. The molecules that make up the acid stick tightly together, allowing it to keep old its shape better and longer.
