Gaunt-Looking Cheeks Need Voluma

Cheek sagging can occur due to a number of reasons, aging being one of them. There are several types of cosmetic treatments available to combat signs of the aging process, some surgical, some minimally invasive, and some non-invasive. The choice depends on the area to be corrected, the issue to be corrected, and the results desired.

Adding a subtle volume to your cheeks can instantly revamp your looks. Procedures that add cheek volume can make patients look younger and more vibrant. Dermal fillers are a very popular choice for adding volume to the face, and Juvederm Voluma is specifically designed for this.


Juvederm is a dermal filler that helps add volume to hollow cheeks to help correct facial gauntness. This award-winning injectable is a very popular choice, as it is quite safe and adds a natural lift from the inside, leaving you looking naturally younger.

Voluma is a hyaluronic-acid filler injected in the form an easily absorbable gel. The hyaluronic acid in Voluma closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid found in the body, making it easy for the skin to accept the injected substance without any side effects.

Benefits of Voluma

• Sullen cheeks leave you looking tired and older than your actual age. Plumping up your cheeks a little can fix this problem.

• This treatment is a non-surgical option, so there are no incisions needed. Because of this, you will not have to worry about any post-surgical marks or long recovery times.

• This is a fast-acting procedure, and the results appear almost immediately.

• This is one of the best treatment options in terms of duration. The time varies from one person to another, and for some people, the results can last for up to two years. This is the only type of dermal filler on the market that is said to give such long-lasting results.

The Procedure – What to Expect

Voluma is a short procedure. The time it takes to perform might range anywhere between 15 minutes and an hour or longer, depending on number of places where the injection has to be given. There is very little discomfort involved. There is a numbing gel used prior to the treatment.

The amount of Voluma injected and the actual treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after careful inspection of the skin and will depend on factors like the age of the patient. The notable aspect about this treatment is the plumping occurs from within, and this is why the results look natural. The results are comparable with some of the surgical procedures while involving milder and less invasive methods.

This is a procedure known for its accuracy. The recovery time required after the procedure is only a few days at most. By spending just a few minutes in the clinic, you can look several years younger without a high risk of complications.
