Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the most recommended and commonly used facial filler substances to eliminate signs of skin aging. There are many kinds of hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers that can be used depending on the treatment plan set by an aesthetic provider.

So why should you choose Juvederm for cheek filler treatments? Juvederm fillers are FDA-approved facial filler injections for facial wrinkle removal, cheek augmentation, and contour enhancement. Generally, Juvederm fillers are recommended for patients who are in good health and wish to soften static wrinkles caused by aging, sun damage, or other factors.

What to Know About Juvederm Voluma Cheek Fillers

Juvederm is a kind of hyaluronic acid filler treatment injection that makes the skin plumper and more volumized. When this HA filler formulation is injected into the facial tissue, the gel-like hyaluronic acid facilitates the binding of the water molecules into the skin cells to hydrate it and retain moisture.

With skin fillers like Juvederm or Restylane Lyft and Restylane Refyne injections, hyaluronic acid is restored that has been lost or diminished due to factors like aging, stress, or other lifestyle factors. As a result of Juvederm dermal fillers, new hyaluronic acid is produced, which keeps the skin looking fresh and healthy.

Juvederm fillers are commonly used in the nasolabial folds, cheeks, marionette lines, and static wrinkles among others. With Juvederm fillers, you can achieve instant, long-lasting rejuvenation and skin smoothening. Below are the kinds of Juvederm fillers with their respective target areas:

Juvederm FillerTarget Areas
Juvéderm XCSmile lines and deep nasolabial folds
Juvéderm Vollure XCNasolabial folds and lip lines
Juvéderm Voluma XCCheek volume, midface
Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XCLip augmentation
Juvederm Volbella XCLip augmentation, vertical lip lines

As shown in the table above, Juvederm cheek filler treatments use Juvéderm Voluma XC formulation for cheek augmentation. This reduces the risk of overfilling while ensuring the effective enhancement of facial contour and improvement of skin laxity.

How Voluma Cheek Fillers Work

Skin aging naturally involves facial volume loss, which can make the cheeks appear sunken with loose skin. With Juvederm Voluma treatment, the volume and the youthful glow in the cheek area can be restored.

Unlike other injectable treatments, Juvederm Voluma gel creates a uniform gel composition using Vycross technology, which results in a more even appearance. Additionally, Juvederm Voluma has essential elements involving a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid compared to other Juvederm fillers.

All Juvederm products contain lidocaine, which is an anesthetic substance so the patient won’t feel any pain or discomfort during the treatment. Depending on a patient’s preference and the aesthetic provider’s recommendation, a patient may still apply topical anesthetic if necessary.

Juvederm Voluma Filler Procedure

Before the procedure, a consultation is required to have a review of your medical history to determine your eligibility for the treatment. In case Juvederm cheek filler treatments aren’t sufficient to correct the signs of skin aging in the face, there are other cosmetic treatment options to help achieve an individual’s beauty goals.

If necessary, you can ask your aesthetic provider for additional topical anesthetic options such as a numbing cream. Juvéderm Voluma XC treatment is injected into the cheek directly to provide a smooth, natural lift to restore the patient’s youthful glow.
