Lift & Contour Cheeks

Subtle lift that lasts.

Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related mid face volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.

What should I expect during my dermal fillers recovery?


Recovery time varies for each patient and for each type of filler injected. You can resume most activities right away, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your physician prior to scheduling your injections. Your initial appearance after treatment with any dermal filler may include: An "overfilled" appearance to treated areas Swelling or bruising ranging from mild to severe Temporary numbness or redness Palpable lumps or hard areas at the injection sites Hypersensitivity reaction that can seem like an allergic reaction with hives and swelling Most conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and massage and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. Some reactions may require more aggressive treatment with medications or injections. Be sure to discuss your recovery and treatment plan with your physician.




What are the steps of a dermal fillers procedure?


A dermal fillers procedure includes the following steps: Step 1 – Facial assessment & mapping If you choose to utilize packaged soft tissue fillers, the plastic surgeon, or his specially-trained nurse, will evaluate your facial appearance and skin tone and examine the areas of your face to be augmented. Strategic points on your face may be marked as the appropriate injection sites for the filler. Photographs may be taken of the areas to be treated. Step 2 – Cleansing & anesthetizing The injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Pain at the injection site may be ameliorated by use of a very cold instrument to chill the skin, anesthetic ointment to numb the skin or injection of local anesthesia. While not painless, the injections are usually easily tolerated. Step 3 – The injection Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler added as needed. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be as short as 15 minutes, or as long as an hour. Step 4 – Clean up & recovery Once the results are deemed satisfactory, any markings will be cleansed off.

When your own fat is the injected filler, the healing process is longer and may take a few weeks. Get more information about fat injections.




What results should I expect after dermal fillers?


The results of soft tissue augmentation using dermal fillers are apparent immediately and will last from several months to several years depending on the filler used and the patient injected. Maintaining good overall health and maintaining healthy and strong skin with appropriate products and skin treatments will improve the results and longevity.
