Many men and women are unhappy with their facial contours because of the lack of definition in the mid-face. While there are many surgical ways to gain a youthful plump, most patients don’t have the time for the downtime associated with them. Whether you’re bothered by sunken cheeks due to age-related volume loss or the less-than-plump cheeks you were naturally given, dermal fillers can help.
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa, Our go-to filler for cheek rejuvenation is Juvederm Voluma XC. Although there are many other soft tissue fillers on the market, it’s best to use a formula that’s specifically designed to tackle the hard-to-treat area. Voluma provides smooth, natural-looking contours with a quick, in-office visit.
What Is Voluma?
Voluma is one of the newer injectable gels from a long line of clinically proven Juvederm fillers. The unique formula pairs advanced Vycross technology with a Hyaluronic Acid-base for maximum spreadability and sustainability. Voluma is one of the only FDA-approved soft tissue fillers designed solely for restoring volume to the mid-face.
Juvederm Voluma treatments are quick and easy. During treatment, Dr. Gallaher will place several injections throughout the cheek area to plump, contour, and volumize. Each dermal filler procedure is tailored to your needs based on your bone structure and what you find aesthetically pleasing. The whole process takes less than 10-15 minutes and is virtually pain-free thanks to the lidocaine-enhanced formula.
Why Choose Voluma?
Most patients are able to get the results they want with just one treatment. You’ll walk out of your in-office appointment with instantly noticeable results. An optimal outcome can be seen after about 1-week. Voluma is one of the longest-lasting fillers currently on the market. Men and women who opt for the cheek volumizing treatment can expect firmer, plumper cheeks for up to 2-years or more.
Instant results with a no-downtime procedure? Yes, please! You’re free to get back to your normal day-to-day routine with minimal restrictions after your Juvederm Voluma appointment. Side effects are typically minimal and subside within several hours to several days. You may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, or bruising at or around the injection site.
What’s Right for You?
Aging doesn’t just affect one area of our body at once. For patients with nasolabial folds around the nose or mouth, Dr. Gallaher may suggest combining multiple injectables for enhanced results. For example, your cheek-filler can be paired with a variety of other Juvederm® fillers to address fine lines, wrinkles, or even facial folds caused by repetitive facial movements.
Occasionally, your soft tissue treatment can be scheduled in a same-day visit along with your consult.
Staff was wonderful! Dr. Gallaher was very professional. The nurse team even sent a note via mail to me after my procedure.
