Get Fuller, Bigger Cheeks with Juvéderm Voluma® XC
Formulated to add immediately noticeable volume to your cheeks, Juvederm Voluma is produced by Allergan®, the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic. While Juvederm Voluma is a lot like other types of facial fillers, it's specially formulated for cheeks and lasts longer. Voluma's quality and effectiveness are causing its popularity to grow in our cosmetic practices in Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ.
Juvederm Voluma: Look Younger for Longer
While wrinkles and lines are often the most noticeable signs of aging, other subtler aging signs also develop as the years pass. Cheeks start to flatten and skin sags. This happens because age causes your cheeks to lose the plumpness that makes you look young as the body reduces production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Juvederm Voluma restores this lost volume, and it lasts longer than many other products designed to provide similar results. In fact, Allergan reports that Juvederm Voluma in your cheeks can last as long as two years.

Your provider will also develop a customized treatment plan for you.

The Voluma Procedure
Injecting Voluma requires an expert touch, so be sure to visit a practice like Ultra Smooth Skin that has experience with this type of injectable. Our aesthetic injectors are trained in bone structure and facial harmony to make sure that the product gives your face a natural appearance. Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid, one that contains an anesthetic called lidocaine. After making the first injection, your aesthetic injection specialist will wait a few moments to let the lidocaine work before moving on to the next round. Small amounts of this facial filler are injected into the treatment area until the desired look is achieved.
Your provider may massage the treatment area following the injections to make sure that the filler is evenly distributed. After the treatment, they may apply ice to the area for a few moments to limit swelling and improve your comfort.
Juvederm Voluma Results and Follow-up Treatments
With a Juvederm Voluma treatment, you should see results immediately. However, you may need follow-up treatments to get the long-term results that you want. During the Voluma clinical trials, 82 percent of people received a follow-up injection about one month after the original treatment to give them the desired results.

How Does Voluma Work?
Voluma works because of the hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a component that your body produces naturally. It sends nutrients to your skin to help it hold onto moisture and retain its softness. As we age, however, the body doesn't produce hyaluronic acid in abundance. Voluma and other HA fillers replace the hyaluronic acid to temporarily rejuvenate your facial features for several months and up to 2 years; Voluma lasts up to 2 years, longer than any other filler currently on the market.
Why Should I Choose Ultra Smooth Skin for My Voluma Treatment?
Lisa Williams is a Master Injector of Voluma, having completed the de Maio Master's Voluma Technique Course taught by Dr. Mauricio de Maio of Sao Paulo, Brazil, who is a renowned plastic surgeon and expert Voluma pioneer injector. Lisa was privileged to be included as one of a few nationwide facial filler injectors to be recently trained by Dr. de Maio, and was handpicked out of a few injectors nationwide, to participate in a master class on injections techniques focused on the VOLUMA® EIGHT POINT LIFT.
