JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe wrinkles of the cheeks in adults age 21 and over. As people age, the cheeks lose volume, causing them to flatten out and the skin to droop and sag.

JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC can temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. The treatment helps to rejuvenate one’s appearance by adding volume, smoothing the skin and restoring a more youthful complexion. Long-lasting results are often immediately apparent and last up to two years with optimal correction.
Some tenderness, bruising, redness, and a bit of swelling after treatment are normal, though these effects should fade within several days.

With the FDA approval of JUVEDERM VOLUMA™ XC, physicians and patients in the U.S. now have a new treatment option that can help create a natural-looking, more youthful appearance in the cheek area.
Dr. Alia S. Brown and Dr. Joel S. Shavin are board certified dermatologists who have a combined experience of over 15 years in dermal filler procedures to correct facial volume loss and softening facial wrinkles and folds.
