How Long Can Cheeks Stay Full with JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC?

Featured Image

One of the most aging facial changes a patient can experience is volume loss in the cheeks, which occurs naturally over time and can give the face a sunken, drawn, and worn appearance well beyond the person's actual years. While cheek implants can certainly be an option for some patients, others may not be interested in invasive surgery or having a long-term synthetic implant. For these men and women, cheek fillers are a widely popular solution for restoring lost volume in the mid-face and virtually turning back the clock — with results that can be particularly long-lasting. Here, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe of Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX answers common cheek filler FAQs, including what to expect with one of the most popular fillers for cheeks — JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC — and how long it can last.

What is meant by hollow cheeks?

If you have been told that hollow or sunken cheeks are contributing to your unwanted progression of facial aging, this typically means that you're showing signs of a loss of volume in the cheeks. This can be due to fat loss, gravity, and the decline of collagen and elastin production that were once responsible for keeping your cheeks and overall facial contours looking youthful and supple. Volume loss in the cheeks can also contribute to the development of lines, wrinkles, and deep facial folds around the nose and mouth, like nasolabial folds and marionette lines. By injecting dermal fillers into the cheeks, patients can restore a softer, fresher, smoother look once again.

Which dermal filler should I get in my cheeks?

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is among the most popular cheek filler options and is specifically designed to treat volume loss in the mid-face. Like other fillers in the JUVÉDERM family, VOLUMA XC contains hyaluronic acid (HA) that closely mimics the body's naturally occurring HA, meaning results can look and feel remarkably natural and keep the skin hydrated and soft.

How long do VOLUMA cheek fillers last?

While many other JUVÉDERM products provide results lasting up to 12 – 18 months, the results of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC — when used in the cheeks and mid-face — can actually provide results that last up to two years, making VOLUMA an exciting and convenient anti-aging solution that does not require constant upkeep.

Where else can JUVÉDERM be used in the face?

While VOLUMA XC is specifically designed for volume loss and lines in the mid-face, the JUVÉDERM collection includes a range of products — like Vollure, Volbella, Ultra XC, and others — that can help to target lines, wrinkles, and flat features almost anywhere on the face. Common aesthetic concerns that can be dramatically improved with JUVÉDERM fillers include:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Thin lips
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Marionette lines

If you have questions about which type of JUVÉDERM is right for you or how JUVÉDERM may be used to restore a more youthful appearance overall, our knowledgeable team is here to help.
