Have you noticed your cheeks losing their volume as you get older? A gaunt or sunken appearance in the cheeks can make you look years older than your actual age. While many dermal fillers on the market are able to get rid of lines and wrinkles, few can do anything about lost cheek volume. Fortunately for Philadelphia residents, The Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery offers Juvéderm Voluma® XC, a filler designed to restore your cheek tissue to a younger, fuller form. To learn about Voluma from a professional, set an appointment at our Suite 202 Facial Spa by calling (610) 687.8771.
What is Juvéderm Voluma®?
Voluma is the first FDA-approved injectable gel that restores lost volume in the cheeks. The gel uses hyaluronic acid to supplement the tissues in the cheek, cheekbones, and chin, giving your face a more rounded, pleasing appearance while accentuating your cheekbones. These results can last for up to two years after a single treatment.
You can use Voluma to treat:
- Gaunt or hollow cheeks
- Cheeks that have lost volume due to aging
- Wrinkled or sagging cheeks
- Cheekbones that are less prominent than you would like
Voluma works best when injected into the deep tissue of your cheeks. After getting the injections, the results should be immediately noticeable. There may be some minor bruising and tenderness, all of which should disappear after a week or two. Make sure you don't have allergies to hyaluronic acid or a history of severe allergies before you use Voluma.
Benefits of Choosing Voluma
Currently, Voluma remains the only dermal filler designed to restore cheek volume that has FDA approval. This means that it is the best and safest option for filling out your cheeks. The injection can be performed quickly, and contains lidocaine to increase patient comfort. And with results that can last up to two years, it's one of the longest-lasting fillers out there.
Hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in Voluma, is a naturally-occurring substance in your skin that increases the skin's hydration, elasticity, and volume. We recommend coming in for a consultation for your dermal fillers, and if you determine that Voluma is the best solution for your cosmetic goals, we can apply it in the same visit. Voluma contains many of the same ingredients as Juvederm, so if your body responds well to that, there is a good chance it will also respond well to Voluma.
There are several advantages to getting your Voluma injections from a certified oculo-facial surgeon like the ones employed by The Morgenstern Center. Our Philadelphia facial surgeons have lots of experience working with the muscles in the face, and they know where your injections should be placed to offer the most transformative results.
