Does your face look more like a healthy baby with pinchable cheeks or a skeleton? Over time, the mid-face naturally begins to lose volume, which can make you look older. Juvéderm Voluma XC is specifically formulated to add temporary volume back in the cheeks for improved lift and contour. At board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden's Bella Lago Aesthetics in Tahoe/Truckee, California, Allergan® certified master injector Christine Geis, RN, uses Voluma injections to help patients restore their appearance. While you may not look like a chubby-cheeked cherub, you will have a fuller mid-face that looks more youthful.
Bella Lago participates in the Allergan Brilliant Distinctions® program to help patients get special savings and earn rewards anytime they have an Allergan treatment, including Juvéderm Voluma XC. Visit the Allergan website or ask for more information on joining Brilliant Distinctions.

What to Expect
Before Voluma injections, numbing cream may be applied to the injection sites to minimize your discomfort, but most patients feel very little pain during their treatment. The skilled technician will carefully inject Voluma into the needed areas of the face in as little as 10 minutes. You may return to your normal activities as soon as you feel able with minimal swelling, discoloration, and tenderness. You will see some results right away, but it usually takes about 7 days before the filler settles into the cheeks for your final results. The effects of Voluma last up to 2 years and patients should talk to their doctor about when to re-schedule for continued effects.
Voluma’s central ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), is a synthetic version of the HA found naturally in human body, so most patients have no negative side effects. In the body, HA functions as natural acting cell hydration with a cross-linking capability (useful in helping facial areas that lack volume), but every person’s natural supply of HA is depleted over time. The hyaluronic acid gel in Voluma replenishes the body’s supply, but it does break down over time as it is safely and slowly absorbed back into the body.
