One of the first areas to lose volume as we age is the the mid face which includes the cheek. The cheek of a youthful face is round, full, projects anteriorly and has a smooth contour. The midface has a heart shape with the chin as the point of the heart. There is an area of prominence typically seen in the lateral cheek that reflects light and gives the cheek a luminous quality. Restoring lost volume to the mid-face helps the face to appear more youthful.
Juvederm Voluma is the first filler that is FDA approved for the cheeks. This filler has been manufactured using a specific technology called Vycross resulting in a smooth, cohesive filler that provides a nice lift where it is injected. The results from Juvederm Voluma can last as long as 2 years. It is appropriate for patients aged 35-65.
In the clinical Juvederm Voluma study, people perceived themselves to look 5 years younger 6 months after treatment, and 3 years younger 24 months after treatment.
With Juvederm Voluma, patients look rested and refreshed. The result looks natural. You will not look overdone. As with other fillers, Juvederm Voluma needs to be administered with an artistic eye. The changes in the face are often in millimeters, more subtle and not immediately obvious to others. Dr. Kelley loves performing injectable procedures and has a gentle, artistic touch.
