Cheek filler in Boston is an excellent option for those who have lost volume in their cheeks. Injectable cheek fillers allow restoration of lost volume without any need for surgery or prosthetic implants.
Juvederm Voluma XC
At our office, we use Juvederm Voluma XC for cheek rejuvenation. Voluma XC is the first and only dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to address symptoms of aging in the midface. The contouring capabilities of this revolutionary injectable therapy make it the ideal solution for hollow cheeks.
Juvederm Voluma XC is a clear hyaluronic-acid gel that was specially created to mimic the body’s naturally produced hyaluronic acid. When hyaluronic acid (HA) forms bonds with neighboring water molecules, this hydrates, firms, and plumps the skin tissues.
Who Are the Best Candidates for Cheek Filler Treatment?
The skin of the cheeks can begin to sag as a result of recent major weight loss or the aging process. Tissue is also lost from the cheeks’ underlying fat layer due to the aging process. If you have noticed drooping skin or fat loss in the midface region, a cheek filler treatment may be right for you.
Both men and women can safely undergo Juvederm Voluma XC treatment. It works equally safely and effectively on people with lighter and darker skin tones.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an ongoing skin infection, or have a recent acne breakout, you may be ineligible for the treatment.
Your Cheek Filler Consultation
During your cheek filler consultation,we will discuss the treatment experience with you, as well as preparation and aftercare steps. You will discuss your health history and dermal filler treatment goals, and then we will create a treatment plan for you.
Cheek filler can be injected at our Boston office in only a few minutes. Because the injection contains a little amount of the numbing ingredient lidocaine, any discomfort or pain is reduced, making the process more comfortable.
Because each patient’s tolerance varies, we can also provide a topical anesthetic.
Once you’re at ease, the Juvederm Voluma XC filler will be injected deep into the cheeks and midface for natural lift and volume.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients see results from cheek filler treatment right away and you will notice an increase in cheek volume immediately after your injection.
You can enjoy the results of Voluma XC for an average of 6-12 months.. After this time, you will need to come in for a maintenance treatment.
Little to no recovery time or downtime is required following cheek filler therapy. Avoid sunbathing, sun exposure, saunas, tanning beds, and extreme cold for a week following your Juvederm Voluma XC treatment. For the first 24 hours after your treatment, avoid applying powdery makeup on your cheeks. Do not drink alcohol or engage in strenuous physical activities.
How Much Does Cheek Filler Cost?
The cost of cheek fillers is not covered by health insurance, since they are a purely cosmetic treatment. Factors affecting the price include the number of injections you will need and the number of sessions required. Price ranges can be found on our nonsurgical pricing page.
