Juvéderm VOLUMA XC in Granite Bay

Rounder, fuller, and more youthful cheeks for up to 2 years, no surgery? Yes, please!


How would you describe the look of your cheeks and mid-face? Hollowed, sagging, just plain tired-looking? It’s a common problem we ladies have as we age—facial tissues lose volume, and our once round, full cheeks start to look a little sad.

If you’re in this boat, Juvéderm VOLUMA XC could help. This one-of-a-kind injectable filler is specially formulated to lift and add volume to the cheeks. Injections are quick, there’s no downtime, and you’ll notice improvement within a few days. Best of all, the results look natural and can last for 18 months or longer.

What’s so great about VOLUMA XC?

Many dermal fillers are great at smoothing wrinkles, but aren’t sturdy enough to actually lift sagging tissues, and can produce underwhelming results over a larger area. VOLUMA XC is both sturdy and stellar at enhancing larger areas like the cheeks. It’s got a thicker, more durable formula of hyaluronic acid (the natural stuff that’s in all Juvéderm products and already exists in your skin) than other fillers, so we can inject it more deeply beneath the skin. The result? Your cheeks look fuller and rounder, plus they get a modest lift in the process.

It’s an excellent non-surgical solution to:

  • Restore a youthful contour to aging, hollowed cheeks
  • Reduce mild sagging in the mid-face
  • Add shape to cheeks that appear flat or shapeless
  • Take a few years off your appearance without surgery

We really love VOLUMA XC, but it’s not going to solve every age-related problem. If you have moderate to severe sagging in the cheeks, a facelift may be more appropriate. Our doctors will provide honest feedback at your consultation and help you decide if VOLUMA XC injections are a good option for you.

What to expect from your VOLUMA XC treatment in Granite Bay

All it takes is a 15 to 30 minute visit to our cosmetic surgery center in beautiful Granite Bay. After confirming your goals and treatment plan with you, our registered nurse injector will give you a topical numbing agent to maximize your comfort. They’ll then strategically inject the VOLUMA XC gel beneath the skin so it achieves the desired lift and shape improvement. You’ll feel a pinch and some pressure.

After treatment, you can go about your day. Common side effects are mild and include slight bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the treatment area. Your cheeks may feel a little lumpy for the first few days after treatment; this is normal and will resolve within 2 weeks or so.

Improvements are noticeable shortly after treatment, final results apparent in about 2 weeks, and the rejuvenating effects will remain for up to 2 years. To keep your cheeks looking lovely for the long term, come see us for a follow-up treatment.
