Cheek Augmentation with Juvederm Voluma

When we are young we have a defined jaw line with smooth contours, and our cheeks and upper-face are full of volume. With age, it is normal for the face to lose bone mass and volume, which allows for hollows to appear in the skin, in addition to sagging skin.  Loss of volume in the cheeks can cause a significant decrease in the definition of the face, and it is even possible for you to notice a change in the shape of your face when mid-face volume decreases.

Juvederm Voluma reverses this by pulling everything back where it belongs.  Juvéderm VOLUMA is the first and only FDA-approved filler developed to volumize the skin. Due to its proprietary ingredients, Juvederm Voluma is able to lift and sculpt the face in ways that no other dermal fillers can.

Juvederm VOLUMA will give you a subtle lift, helping to restore curve and a more youthful profile adding volume to the cheekbone area. That means, not only is the cheek area restored to a more youthful look, but the lower face is lifted as well by the increased volume of the cheeks resulting in less filler in the folds and lines around the mouth.

While other dermal fillers are used primarily to fill in lines and plump only surface areas like the lips, Juvederm Voluma is the first and only product that was specifically developed to add volume underneath the skin. Because it is used sub-dermally, Juvéderm Voluma plumps from below, adding firmness and fullness back to the cheeks, chin and jaw.  Although Voluma is different from other dermal fillers, it was not intended to replace them. Voluma has a job separate from other products like Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus. While Voluma volumizes and plumps, Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus fill lines and wrinkles. Used together, these two types of dermal products create a dramatic difference.

BOTOX AND FILLERS CONSULTATION:

  • During your consultation, our medical director, Olga Voloshina will perform a thorough examination of your skin to determine which filler is best suited to meet your concerns as well as the amount of filler to use, proper injection sites, and the healthiest wrinkle filler regimen for your desired results. Olga Voloshina is considered one of the top injectors in the Seattle area and is also an Allergan Facial Aesthetics trainer.  As an Allergan trainer she spends her time training doctors and nurses around the nation on proper injection techniques as well as the latest developments of the industry.

PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:

  • To minimize the chance of any bruising, please avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and any other blood-thinning medications for up to a week before your injections.
  • Let us know if you are on therapy used to decrease the body’s immune response (immunosuppressive therapy). Use may result in an increased risk of infection.
  • Minimize strenuous exercise and exposure to extensive sun or heat within the first 24 hours following treatment.

DURING YOUR TREATMENT:

The formulas now used for most fillers include a local anesthetic that helps minimize the discomfort patients may feel during the injections. Of course, some patients are more sensitive than others and may experience more discomfort. Most describe the feeling as a minor discomfort, like getting a shot.

SIDE EFFECTS:

Dermal fillers are very safe and effective, but there are some common side effects. These are mostly minor and diminish in a couple of days. Swelling and bruising may occur after filler injections. Infection is a more serious complication but rarely occurs.

Juvederm Voluma treatments are available at Northwest Aesthetics Bellevue and Kent, WA locations.
