Voluma™: Anti-Aging Cheek Augmentation in Raleigh

If you’re interested in fighting signs of aging or tired skin, Glo de Vie has the perfect treatment to revitalize and refresh your look. Available at our med spa in Raleigh, Juvéderm Voluma™ XC is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) filler specifically for cheek augmentation in patients over the age of 21. Whereas Juvedérm® XC smoothes out wrinkles and folds around the mouth, Voluma is a thick, yet smooth gel, specially formulated with Vycross cross-linking technology perfect for volumizing the cheeks.

Why Voluma, The Only FDA-Approved Cheek Filler?

voluma picNo matter your skin type or tone, when you choose Glo de Vie’s anti-aging Voluma treatments in Raleigh, you’ll see results that are natural and immediate, lasting for up to two years. Voluma is different because it’s from Juvedérm, the #1 family of HA dermal fillers. This means you’ll enjoy a smooth, consistent and comfortable injection for a natural look and feel. This cheek filler replenishes your skin with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring internal moisturizer that diminishes with age and sun exposure. Restoring hyaluronic acid to your skin with Voluma revitalizes the structure and volume of your face.

Voluma instantly makes your face appear more youthful and refreshed by working at the source of the problem, creating lift and balance in your cheeks and temples. Not only will Voluma volumize the upper part of your cheeks, but you’ll also notice lift in the upper corners of your mouth and jowls, as well as minimization of dark circles under your eyes, enlivening the entire face.

Glo de Vie’s Voluma Treatment ProcessVoluma3

Amanda Gallagher, the board certified Nurse Practitioner at Glo de Vie, is specially trained to apply Voluma for subtle, beautifully contoured and lifted cheeks. Our safe and relaxing Raleigh anti-aging procedure is completely painless, as the Voluma injection is mixed with an anesthetic for added comfort. A local anesthetic may also be applied, and an ice pack can be used for extra numbing. After examining the tissue of your face in order to determine how to rejuvenate your particular problem areas, Amanda will inject Voluma deeply into the soft tissue of your cheeks, gently massaging the injection site to perfectly mold and sculpt the cheek filler.

You’ll instantly notice the difference. The restored contour of your cheeks will make you look refreshed, less tired and more youthful, and you’ll be able to resume your daily activities only 24 hours after the Voluma injection. We recommend you return to our Raleigh med spa two weeks after the procedure to ensure the treatment is molded and shaped more evenly to give you the best possible, longest-lasting results.

Side effects of Voluma are moderate and generally last two to four weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site, such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration and itching. As with any injection, there is a risk for infection.

Those who have a history of excessive scarring, immunosuppressive therapy, keloid formation, pigment disorders or certain severe allergies should avoid Juvéderm dermal filler, as well as those who are pregnant or nursing. Voluma is only suitable for patients age 21 and older.

Pre-treatment instructions?
