One of the most common signs of aging is facial wrinkles and folds. As time progresses, our skin loses volume and subcutaneous fat, resulting in age lines and sagging skin. Some people may also experience flattening or sagging facial cheeks which can greatly affect their image. If you are bothered by sagging cheeks and wrinkles, Medical Director Jennifer Parker Porter offers JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC as one of several Juvederm® dermal fillers that can replenish youthful skin.

What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
As people age, they may begin to notice their cheeks flatten due to a gradual loss of volume.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is specifically designed to replenish volume underneath the surface of the skin to help augment the cheek area.

Since every patient has different skin and body chemistry, results will vary from person to person. With optimal treatment, results from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can last up to two years!
Are there any side effects?
Some patients may experience temporary tenderness, redness, or bruising at the treatment site. These side effects are mild, but the patient’s body chemistry will determine their length.
