Getting Cheeky: Go Beyond Botox

Botox might be one of the best-known brands when it comes to making the face look younger, and it is a fantastic product, but don’t overlook the power of Voluma. It is one of the many highly effective procedures offered at RefinedMD and can pick up where Botox takes off when it comes to ridding the face of unwanted lines and wrinkles. Making the face look younger often requires ridding the skin of wrinkles in two ways: Temporarily and safely freezing key muscles while also filling in lost volume. Fillers can replace volume lost to age or weight loss while additionally banishing fine lines and wrinkles that naturally occur with lax skin.

Fantastic Dermal Fillers for Cheeks

Voluma is a Juvederm product designed specifically for cheeks. Although it is revered by those who have lost volume in the cheeks due to age, it is also a great option for anyone looking for more contour and definition in this area. High cheekbones have long been an esthetic wish item for both men and women. However, naturally high, full cheekbones often do not happen naturally. It is why some people spend hours perfecting their cheek contouring technique with makeup to “fake” the look that Voluma can actually provide.

Like many fillers, Voluma is not permanent. The results fade over time, which makes it the perfect product to try out a look without a lifelong commitment. Still, Voluma lasts for around two years making it a semi-permanent solution. On average, patients report looking five years younger. Voluma can also be used for the lips to re-plump a pout and fill in those pesky lines and wrinkles.

For patients who want an additional Voluma injection after two years, most need less product. Voluma is considered safe and effective. The most common side effects are redness, tenderness, discomfort, and swelling at the injection site immediately after the procedure. These side effects almost always go away within a few days.
