Abstract

BACKGROUND

Juvéderm Voluma XC (VYC-20L; hyaluronic acid gel) is approved in the United States for correction of age-related midface volume deficit (MVD).

OBJECTIVE

Assess safety and effectiveness of VYC-20L after repeat treatment.

METHODS

Subjects with MVD underwent optional repeat treatment 12 to 24 months after initial treatment if correction was lost or at 24 months regardless of loss of correction (n = 167). Investigators rated outcomes on the Mid-Face Volume Deficit Scale (MFVDS) and the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). Subject-rated outcomes were the GAIS, overall satisfaction with facial appearance, achievement of treatment goal, and Self-Perception of Age questionnaire. Subjects recorded treatment-site responses in 30-day diaries.

RESULTS

Mean injection volume for repeat treatment (3.13 mL) was approximately half the mean total injection volume for initial/touch-up treatment (6.8 mL). After repeat treatment, effectiveness was demonstrated on all investigator-rated and subject-rated measures, consistent with results observed after initial treatment. The percentage of subjects improving by ≥1 point on the MFVDS was 82.8% and 91.1% at 6 and 12 months after repeat treatment, respectively. The incidence, severity, and duration of common treatment-site responses were lower after repeat versus initial treatment.

CONCLUSION

Repeat treatment with VYC-20L was well tolerated and resulted in high levels of effectiveness and subject satisfaction.
