Juvederm® Voluma XC adds volume to correct age related collagen and volume loss in the cheeks area. It last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
Wrinkles and skin lines are not the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to lose firmnesss. This is casued by a natural loss of volume in the midfacial area.
My prefence for flattend cheeks is to use Juvederm® voluma to correct appreance of atropy on lateral cheek bones. I tend to inject deep with my vertical puncture bolues to lift cheeks laterally, then I go anteromedialy aspect with fanning, and linear threading technique. Juvederm® Voluma XC can be used for other areas “off label” such as naso labial folds, jaw lines, chin, and temples. We advised our patiens to avoid heavy physical activity on the same date of procedure and to use ice for at least 20 minutes two or three times at home. I schedule follow up visit about two weeks after to evaluate the areas that needs touch up and to measure level of correcion. Follow up injections depends on my patietns level of satisfaction, degree of volume correction and their budget.
