As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
Juvederm® Voluma XC: for cheeks.
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss.
Juvederm® Voluma XC adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. When used in the cheeks, it can give a lifted appearance and can be used to improve appearance of jowls as well.
You may have heard about this when people talk about getting a ‘liquid facelift’. Juvederm® Voluma XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. This is the thickest of the Juvederm® products.
It also contains lidocaine in the syringe to make it more comfortable to inject. This product lasts on average 12-24 months.
Our goal here at The Dermatology of Institute of Boston is protect the health of our patients and staff. To continue caring for our patients during these uncertain times, while strictly adhering to the guidelines set by the CDC, we will be only offering virtual consultations. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
