Over time, many men and women begin to notice a loss of volume in their facial features. While this is a natural side effect of aging, not everyone is okay with settling for sunken and hollow looking cheeks and the subsequent wrinkles that come with lost volume. Juvéderm Voluma XC can help restore volume lost due to aging and restore a more youthful appearance. It is the most popular dermal filler with instantaneous results lasting up to 2 years.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that lifts the cheeks’ skin and restores lost volume. But it doesn’t just restore the volume in your cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma XC also smooths fine lines and wrinkles in the surrounding areas.
Enhance your cheeks with Juvéderm Voluma XC
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm Voluma XC are made from a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Your skin actually depends on HA to maintain its elasticity and flexibility as well as to stay hydrated since HA is excellent at retaining water. As we age, your skin begins to produce less and less HA causing skin to lose its elasticity and create deep folds and wrinkles and hollow pockets. The gel is injected beneath the skin’s surface to smooth out these lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, it’s perfectly safe to use even if you’re nursing or pregnant. So long as you are over the age of 21 and seek to correct sunken or hollow cheeks, anyone is a candidate for Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable fillers. Juvéderm Voluma XC is great for:

If you do feel any discomfort or anxiety before or during your treatment, you can always ask your provider about PRO-NOX.
Recovery after your injection treatment
