If you’ve noticed hollow cheeks and sagging skin in your mid-face/cheek area, this could be making you look older or tired even if you otherwise look and feel younger. To correct this, consider a facial rejuvenation treatment plan that includes Juvéderm Voluma XC.

What is Juvéderm Voluma XC?

From pharmaceutical manufacturer Allergan, the Juvéderm line is the best-selling collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in the country. Each treatment is composed of hydrating hyaluronic acid, which synthesizes easily with the body and delivers exceptional results to rejuvenate your appearance.

Juvéderm Voluma XC is specifically designed to improve your appearance by adding volume to your cheeks. Contact us today to learn more about treating your hollow cheeks.

Re-Volumize Your Cheeks with this Dermal Filler

Chiseled, high cheekbones and a defined jawline are facial hallmarks in both women and men that many Americans believe characterize attractiveness. As you age, these defined features lose facial fat, which robs the cheeks of volume and lift. The result is skin that sags and cheeks that look depleted, hollow, and flatter, foretelling your age as much as facial wrinkles and lines do. This is called midface volume loss due to aging.

If you have cheekbones that lack definition, these sunken features can make you appear old and/or fatigued. If your cheeks have flattened due to volume loss, it likely is due to your skin losing hydration as you age.

When injected into the midface region, Voluma XC works beneath the skin to lift, add volume, and contour cheeks that have lost volume due to aging. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the only filler proven in clinical studies to last as long as two years, although results can vary from patient to patient.

The injections create a refreshed, youthful appearance with results that are subtle and natural-looking. 

What Else Can Juvéderm Voluma XC Address?

The midface area is critical to the structure and symmetry of the entire face. Any depletion or lack of definition in this area can affect your overall appearance.

With Voluma XC, not only are your hollow cheeks addressed but other parts of the face as well. Though the injections are administered into the mid-to-upper cheek area, they indirectly improve the following:

  • Undefined jawline – A major consequence of hollow cheeks is sagging skin along the jawline. Voluma XC can help restore the jawline to its previous shape by lifting this sag and adding facial balance.
  • Moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth – Voluma XC can help address smile lines (parentheses lines) and nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth. Treatment can help restore collagen production for tighter skin and added volume around the nose and mouth.
  • A recessed chin – The loss of volume in the midface region results in sagging, loose skin that causes the chin to lose any of its prominence. Juvéderm Voluma XC can help augment the chin by giving it lift and definition.
  • Under-Eye Skin Laxity – If you have under-eye bags that make you appear tired and/or stressed, a precise touch by our medical specialists can improve this and give your eyes a perkier, more alert-looking appearance.

Potential Side Effects

Potential side effects of Juvéderm Voluma XC are usually found at the injection site, but they are usually mild and temporary. Moderate side effects can last 2-4 weeks and include the following:

  • Pain or soreness
  • Tenderness
  • Redness or irritation
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Lumps or bumps
  • Bruising
  • Discoloration
  • Itching

Frequently Asked Questions About Voluma XC

A: Although results can vary, many patients typically see results immediately.

Q: How long does Juvéderm Voluma XC last?

A: With optimal treatment, Voluma XC results can last up to two years.

Q: Will this treatment require any downtime?

A: For our West Los Angeles patients, a treatment session with Juvéderm Voluma XC can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, depending on how many injections you receive and which area of the midface is being treated. After the injections, patients are free to return to their normal daily activities.

Q: There are many products in the Juvéderm line – how do I know if Juvéderm Voluma XC is right for me?
