Volume Injections for the Cheek Area 

As people age, their facial skin loses volume, leading to the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and sagging contours. One way to restore lost volume and youth to the face is volume-based contouring. In the quest for an ideal solution to rejuvenate facial skin and enhance cheek volume, Juvederm Voluma filler stands out as a distinctive option within the realm of advanced cosmetic correction procedures.

 What is Juvederm Voluma filler?

Juvéderm Voluma is a gel that is injected into the cheeks to fill them out. It contains hyaluronic acid, which is a biocompatible substance, meaning it is completely broken down by the body over time. Juvederm Voluma helps restore lost volume in the cheek area, making the face more proportional and youthful.

Composition of the drug

  1. The main active ingredient of Voluma is artificially synthesized low-molecular-density hyaluronic acid with high density, an analogue of the natural component of the body present in each of its cells. It has the ability to retain moisture, which gives the skin elasticity and volume.
  2. Lidocaine is an anesthetic that is used to numb the procedure of injecting the filler.
  3. Stabilizing substances (DMX-HCl, Ethylhexylglycerin and phosphate buffer), which slow down the breakdown of hyaluronic acid and minimize the manifestations of side effects.

However, what makes the filler especially effective is its unique formula, which increases the viscosity of the gel and is specifically designed for deeper penetration.

Volume injections of the filler provide:

  • Intensive moisturizing and dense filling of tissues, which strengthens the skin frame and leads to the instantaneous elimination of sagging skin and gives the cheeks volume.
  • Stimulation of collagen secretion, which contributes to skin elasticity.
  • Elimination of wrinkles and folds in the cheek area.
  • Restoration of the clarity of the facial oval.
  • Reducing the prominence of the cheekbone lines.
  • Return of youth and attractiveness of the face.

The hyaluronic acid in the medication is highly concentrated (24 mg/mL) and has a thick texture, which, combined with stabilizing substances, helps to maintain volume and provide a long-lasting correction effect (up to 18 months).

Treatment for volume restoration with Juvéderm Voluma

The Juvéderm Voluma cheek augmentation procedure at Bella Sana in Chicago is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment that can help to restore volume and fullness to the cheeks. The procedure consists of several steps.

  1. Preparation. Before the procedure, an injector nurse  will consult with the patient to discuss their individual goals and expectations for the treatment. The cosmetologist will also determine the necessary volume of filler for the injections. 
  2. Skin cleansing. The cheek area is thoroughly cleansed to prevent infection or irritation.
  3. Filler injection. The nurse injects Juvéderm Voluma into the designated areas and then evenly distributes it, providing a harmoniously balanced, natural-looking cheek volume. 
  4. Massage and modeling. After the filler is injected, massage and modeling are performed on the treated area to achieve optimal distribution of the product and create the desired shape. 
  5. Completion of the procedure. At the end of the procedure, the treated area is carefully examined, and the patient receives recommendations for post-procedure skin care.

The Juvéderm Voluma treatment usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, and most patients can return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. Cheeks immediately look tighter and more embossed, gaining a fresh and refreshed look.
