Facial lines and wrinkles aren’t the only changes in your skin as you age. Your cheeks also lose volume which can cause your skin to sag. That’s why a more youthful profile starts with your cheeks. Youthful cheeks are round, like an apple. Aging cheeks are flat and sunken.
At Water’s Edge Dermatology, our practitioners use Juvéderm Voluma® XC to create contour and give your cheeks a subtle lift instantly, with natural-looking results for up to two years. It is quickly becoming one of our most popular fillers.
What is Juvéderm Voluma® and how does it work?
Juvéderm Voluma® was the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler for the cheek area. This non-surgical treatment adds natural-looking volume in the cheeks and restores a more youthful profile.
To treat moderate to deep lines and folds around your mouth and nose, you can also receive Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC injections during the same office visit.
What can I expect from treatment?
Your Water’s Edge Dermatology practitioner uses a fine needle to inject Juvéderm Voluma® under the skin. It can instantly add just enough volume to gently lift the cheek area. To reduce discomfort during the procedure, Juvéderm Voluma® contains an anesthetic (lidocaine). The procedure takes about 15 minutes and you can go about your day with no downtime.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
Juvéderm Voluma® yields instant results. You will immediately notice plumper, fuller cheeks that leave you looking and feeling years younger. Best of all, the results are clinically proven to last up to two years.
