Injectable gel adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks.
While wrinkles and deepening parantheses lines are recognizable, what might be less obvious is age-related midface volume loss. Have your cheeks flattened? Then you might notice the skin begin to slightly sag, aging your appearance.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first FDA approved injectable filler designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area to create a more youthful appearance and correct what experts call age-related midface volume loss, which is sagging and flattening of the cheeks.
How JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC works
A hyaluronic acid gel injection (compatible with the human body as it’s naturally found in almost every single living thing,) acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.

What we love about it
It’s immediate and reversible. It allows changes in the contours of the face. And it lasts up to 2 years. It’s also less painful and less prone to cause bruising. It’s very natural looking. A great choice for men — it’s practically indetectible.
What to expect
Before beginning treatment, we will examine the cheek area to determine if JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is right for you. Then we will tailor a treatment designed for your aesthetic goals. The treatment consists of between 1-6 small injections and is complete in 15-20 minutes. You will likely experience some tenderness, swelling, bruising, or itching for 2-4 weeks.

Possible side effects
The most common side effects include tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. Side effects are moderate (uncomfortable) and last 2 to 4 weeks. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel, and while rare, the complications can be serious. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or scarring. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
