Full, cherub-like cheeks have long been considered to be a sign of youth and vitality. If the passage of time has left you with noticeably saggy or sunken cheeks, Foglietti Fostyk Plastic Surgery can help. Juvederm Voluma XC is the first product FDA-approved to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Made of hyaluronic acid, a natural-occurring substance that binds water to the skin, Juvederm Voluma XC restores youthful volume to the cheeks, creating a subtle lift and a more youthful profile.
How Does Juvederm Voluma XC Work?
When injected into the skin, Voluma XC works to lift and contour the cheeks. Depending on your specific needs and goals, Voluma XC can be injected into the apex, apples or hollow of the cheeks, or in various areas. During the consultation phase, a member of our team will meet with you to discuss the details of the treatment. They will explain the injection points and amount of Voluma XC product needed to produce your desired results.
Voluma XC can be administered as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation or skin procedures. All of your treatment options will be discussed with you thoroughly so you can make the best decision regarding your cosmetic care.
Juvederm Voluma XC can be administered in as little as 15 minutes in our Cleveland office. Treatment with Voluma XC is virtually painless, due to the presence of lidocaine, a numbing agent, in the injectable product. Using a thin needle, small amounts of Voluma XC will be injected into the deeper tissues of the face. The treated areas may be gently massaged.
What to Expect After
There is no recovery or downtime with Juvederm Voluma XC. You will be free to return to work and resume most normal activities after treatment. We recommend not exercising for 24 hours after injection as it may result in increased bruising and swelling. You are advised to avoid extended sun exposure, steam rooms and saunas for about two weeks after your treatment appointment. Side effects are minimal but include swelling, bruising, tenderness and discomfort at the injection site(s).
Maintaining Your Youthful, More Attractive Appearance
You will see the full results of your Voluma XC treatment about one to two weeks after treatment. Results with Juvederm Voluma XC vary patient to patient but have been shown to last up to two years. Repeat treatments are recommended to maintain your results long-term. Our team will advise you on a repeat treatment schedule that works best for you. We can also recommend other skin and facial treatments that can complement your Voluma XC results.
