Get Youthful-Looking Cheeks with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC

Wrinkles and frown lines aren’t the only hints that give away your age. Flattening and sagging cheeks are just as telling. As we age, our cheeks naturally lose volume, clinically known as age-related midface volume loss. So cheeks that used to be taut and cherubic become flat and saggy over time. That means that while some treatments are effective at smoothing out facial lines, you might still feel as though you look every bit your age if you have loose skin on your cheeks. 

The good news is you don’t need to have surgery or cheek implants to restore your youthful appearance. J. Ryan Rice, MD, FACS, with Penn Highlands Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery in DuBois can give you a more shapely face with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC. The simple injection lifts and contours the cheeks by adding volume underneath the surface of the skin.

Long-Lasting Results With JUVEDERM®

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC patients report looking five years younger six months after treatment. Results last up to two years in most patients. And subsequent treatments usually require less product to achieve the same desired outcomes.

How does the filler offer such promising results? JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a smooth, clear gel made of modified hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. Used to add volume, HA molecules have the unique ability to attract water, so it helps the skin retain moisture and softness.

JUVÉDERM is the No. 1 selling HA filler in the U.S., and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is FDA approved to “temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area of adults over the age of 21.” Treatment takes about 30 minutes in Dr. Rice’s office, and the results are instantaneous. What are you waiting for?
