As we get older, our bodies experience a decrease in Hyaluronic Acid—a moisturizing acid that helps maintain the skin’s youthful volume and structure. A major sign of aging is volume loss in the face, especially the cheek area. Dream Spa Medical provides fillers that restore volume for a more youthful look and we are proud to add the first and only filler that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area.
Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is created by the same makers as Botox® and Juvéderm® XC. Patients who are familiar with Juvéderm® XC know how effective the product is for restoring volume around the nose and mouth. What makes Juvéderm Voluma™ XC unique is that this product is specifically designed for the cheek area and injections are clinically proven to provide volume for up to 2 years.
Most of us don’t have deep wrinkles in our cheeks and chose to focus on smoothing out lines around our noses or mouths. However, adding volume to our cheeks adds a subtle but effective way to look younger. Take a look at these before and after photos from the clinical trial:
This patient had 3.5 mL injected into her cheek area. As you can see, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC added fullness to the apex, apple, and hollow of her cheeks but the result is subtle. The patient does not look like she had work done even though volume has been restored to her cheek area. The clinical trial determined that optimal results are best achieved with an injection of 6.8 mL but our nurses will work with you to find the right amount of Juvéderm Voluma™ XC for your individual needs.
Schedule an appointment with one of our nurses today to discuss how Juvéderm Voluma™ XC can help you create a more youthful look. Many of our patients combine filler and Botox® treatments in one day. Dream Spa Medical is hosting a Botox® Day on February 27th. All Botox® treatments are 15% off on the 27th and Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is a perfect addition to your treatment.
