If your cheeks have lost youthful volume and lift, you have probably asked yourself – How can I add volume to my cheeks. Loss of volume in the midface contributes to aging just as much as wrinkles do, so it’s important to include it in an overall facial rejuvenation program.
Why your cheeks lose volume
Reduced facial fullness is a common sign of aging. It typically occurs due to a decline in the thickness of the natural fat pads in the cheeks, as well as a reduction in collagen and elastin. Facial bones also lose density with age. These factors all contribute to the sunken appearance of the cheeks.
How Can I Add Volume to My Cheeks?
If you are looking to replenish volume in the cheeks, a dermal filler like Juvederm Voluma is a great option. Juvederm Voluma is a temporary injectable filler that has been specially formulated to add volume to the cheeks. It consists of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps keep the skin moist and supple.
How does Juvederm Voluma add volume to the cheeks?
A tiny needle is used to inject Juvederm Voluma into the skin on top of the cheekbone. When injected, the HA molecules in Juvederm attract and bind water to them. This instantly adds natural-looking volume to the cheeks, and makes the midface appear more lifted.
How long does Juvederm Voluma last?
The cheek plumping effects of Voluma last for approximately 2 years.
