Hollow cheeks cause a dramatic change in a person’s appearance. It makes them look tired, lifeless, and much older than their actual age. There aren’t many skincare products to choose from when it comes to filling the lost facial volume, which is why most patients turn to dermal fillers for optimal treatment and instantly noticeable results.
So how does Voluma work in restoring the lost volume of the facial tissue? Voluma is a specially formulated Juvederm injection that fills the sunken parts of the cheeks in three areas: the apex, apple, and hollow. This injectable treatment is administered with lidocaine using a very fine needle to minimize the patient’s pain and discomfort during the procedure.
Juvederm Voluma injectable gel is one of the most requested injectable treatments today for a good reason – it’s a highly effective facial filler that works for anyone who wants to restore cheek volume and get rid of deep nasolabial folds and severe wrinkles. Here at Evolve Med Spa, our plastic surgeon and expert staff are dedicated to helping you restore a youthful appearance without the need for plastic surgery.
Aside from being an effective facial volume treatment for the cheek area, Voluma injectable filler is also used for a variety of cutting-edge procedures and applications, such as:
A: Juvederm Voluma isn’t recommended for adding volume to thin lips because it was developed with high saturation. This solution is best used for stable areas of the face like the cheeks. A non-surgical lip augmentation treatment requires a more “flowy” solution to achieve natural-looking results, so Juvederm Ultra and Volbella are better picks for lip enhancement and marionette lines.
A: Juvederm Voluma is an FDA-approved treatment for non-surgical cheek augmentation. It’s a generally safe treatment, as long as it’s performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or cosmetic expert. Patients may experience mild to moderate side effects like tenderness, swelling, pain, redness, or itching in the treated area, but they usually go away after a few days. However, make sure to contact a medical professional immediately if the symptoms worsen or persist.
A: What most patients love about Juvederm injections is that they last longer than other dermal fillers in the market like Restylane, Belotero, and others. While other injectable fillers only last for a few months, Voluma stays in the treatment areas for several months up to more than a year.
While Voluma injections are great for cheek augmentation, they might not be the best procedure for everyone. Before trying out any kind of aesthetic treatment, it’s important to consult a medical professional first to find out if it’s the right procedure for you.
