Many patients ask me if there is anything they can do to restore the fullness they once had in their cheeks, are looking for more defined cheek bones, or simply want facial rejuvenation without having to have surgery.

“Having tried different cosmetic procedures and fillers, Voluma truly made the biggest difference! The Voluma results are immediate and long lasting. It is more affordable than facial surgery and in my opinion, well worth it! ” -Sherry M.

One of the early signs of aging is volume loss in the cheek area of the face from a combination of fat and bone absorption, which results in sagging skin and hollowing that increases slowly over time. This loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years. Juvederm Voluma XC injectable gel is the answer to volume loss or if you are looking for more defined cheekbones. Juvederm Voluma XC, more commonly known as Voluma, is the first and only filler that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and results in a more youthful profile. By lifting in the cheek area, Voluma can also decrease definition of the nasolabial folds (the lines around your mouth).

So what is Voluma? It is a hyaluronic acid, which is derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar. It is similar to other Juvederm Ultra fillers, however, Voluma is specifically used for the cheek area. Voluma results are immediate and it is also the only filler clinically proven to last up to 2 years, versus the typical 1 year when injected with the optimal amount of syringes. It contains lidocaine as well so pain is minimal during the procedure. Side effects are mild-moderate and generally last less than 2-4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, bruising, pain, redness, firmness, discoloration, and itching.

“ I am an active 49 year old woman and was starting to notice my face looking older than I felt. I thought I was too young for a facelift and started looking for other options. Dr. Jason discussed with me many different treatment options, and we decided on Voluma for my cheeks and botox for my forehead. He did a great job and I am so happy with my results! I had no bruising and it was not painful. I feel like I look 10 years younger!” – Nancy B.

So if you are ready to turn back the clock on your face and get back your smooth and well-defined cheeks, Voluma may be the answer you’ve been looking for!
