How to Correct Loss of Volume in the Cheek Area

Posted on May 2, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Impact of Aging on Cheek Area

As we age we may lose volume and elasticity in the cheek area. This is caused by atrophy of subcutaneous fat.

Newer products such as Juvederm Voluma XC can help alleviate this common cosmetic problem.

Raising the Bar (and Your Cheeks)

Voluma can:

  • Provide volume and offer a lifting effect on the cheeks
  • Fill in sunken areas in the cheek area
  • Last 18-24 months

A Natural Impact

Voluma contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is a natural substance found in our body. Because of that, its effects can be easily reversed if you don’t like your results.

The Treatment You Can Trust

Voluma has been specifically approved by the FDA for filling the cheek area.

New Voluma

Posted on November 19, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko

Manufactured by the Allergan pharmaceutical company, a long-awaited product has just received FDA approval: Juvederm Voluma XC. Voluma is the first approved drug for adding volume to the cheek area.

While the drug had already been approved in 72 countries, cosmetic dermatologists, in the U.S., have waited 5 years to offer this anti-aging, non-invasive treatment to their patients. And the U.S. is known for the most rigorous research and testing to insure its approved products are safe and effective.

As the name implies, loss of volume is one of the most common and visible signs of aging or, perhaps, simply of fast weight-loss. Usually most noticeable under the eyes or in the hollows of the lower cheeks, the effect is a drawn, tired appearance. Adding back some fullness and rounder contours definitely creates a youthful, more radiant look.

Voluma offers, what is often described as, a “liquid facelift.” It is injected using very fine needles, contains an anesthetic element of Lidocaine for optimum comfort, has a very fine consistency and is based on hyaluronic acid, which is already produced by the body and, therefore, does not require allergy testing.

But, perhaps, the two most highly-celebrated aspects of Voluma are its immediate and natural-looking effects and its longevity. Voluma will last between 18 – 24 months, depending upon the individual’s age, lifestyle and other personal characteristics. That’s about 3 times as long as the popular sister products like Juvederm and Restylane.
