As many men and women know, wrinkles are only one part of facial aging. For many people, a loss of facial volume that results in sagging, sunken cheeks can be a concern that previously was difficult to treat. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA is the first hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler to be FDA-approved to treat volume loss in the cheeks. At our practice, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA is especially popular with our clients who want to restore their youthful-looking facial contours without undergoing surgery.
Like JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that’s naturally produced by the body to help keep tissues firm and resilient. However, its production decreases with age, which can lead to loose, sagging skin, as well as the development of wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA was specifically formulated to replace volume in the cheeks, restoring facial fullness and adding a subtle lift. The product’s thicker gel is more durable and designed for deep injection in the larger area of the cheeks. The smooth gel of VOLUMA creates soft, even results, and the product is formulated with lidocaine for added comfort. The results of a single brief treatment are instant, and they can last for up to 2 years thanks to patented cross linking of the HA gel in the injections. VOLUMA is the only filler approved by the FDA to treat age-related volume loss in the cheeks, one of the most common signs of aging. Because the injections are so long lasting and create such an effective “lifted” look, many patients consider them a suitable alternative to anti-aging facial surgery.
Here are some of the conditions JUVÉDERM® treats:
- Smile lines: Also called nasolabial folds, these folds run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
- Marionette lines: The vertical wrinkles below the mouth’s corners running down to the chin are known as marionette lines.
- Vertical lip lines: Smokers are especially susceptible to these lines that appear above and around the mouth. Most of us develop these lines as we age simply because our lips move so often and are exposed to the sun. These lines often respond to a single JUVÉDERM® treatment.
JUVÉDERM® An excellent way to plump wrinkles from beneath the skin for a long-lasting, natural-looking improvement without surgery. Many patients combine a JUVÉDERM® treatment with injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic or XEOMIN® for a more complete rejuvenation package.

Men and women who are looking for a minimally invasive way to enhance and revive their faces trust the science behind RADIESSE. Our patients love the subtle, natural-looking results that take effect immediately and last for up to 1 year. By stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, this FDA-approved injectable filler creates a noticeable improvement in facial lines and wrinkles with no downtime.
RADIESSE® relies on an ingredient called calcium hydroxyl apatite (CaHA) that works in 2 ways. Immediately after injection, patients will observe an improvement in the appearance of their targeted areas. Over the next several months, the CaHA stimulates the body’s own collagen production process, improving the look and feel of the targeted skin. The CaHA will eventually be metabolized by the body, a harmless process that leaves behind only your natural collagen. Visible results can last for up to 1 year, and most patients are satisfied with their results after a single treatment.
RADIESSE® is currently the only FDA-approved dermal filler that immediately restores lost volume and stimulates collagen production. Patients who undergo a RADIESSE® treatment report high levels of satisfaction with both the injection experience and their ultimate results.
RADIESSE® has been approved to be mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in order to maximize patient comfort during the injection.
What It Treats
RADIESSE has been proven to create noticeable improvement in the following areas:
- Corners of the mouth: Known as the oral commissures, this area can turn downwards as we age, exacerbating the appearance of other nearby wrinkles.
- Marionette lines: These lines extend directly downwards from the corners of the mouth, making us look sad.
- Horizontal chin wrinkles: Located directly under the lower lip, this stubborn wrinkle can distract from our smiles.
- Smile lines: Also known as nasolabial folds, these are the “parentheses” that form when we grin.
- Pre-jowl: The hollow areas on either side of the chin, called the pre-jowl sulcus, can lose volume and contribute to the development of jowls.
RADIESSE® treatments may be combined with other services, such as microdermabrasion, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and other dermal fillers to create a more impressive improvement. During your consultation, our staff will work with you to develop a plan that effectively addresses your concerns.
RADIESSE® is an excellent choice for men and women looking for a long lasting, non-surgical solution to age-related lines and wrinkles. With no downtime, few risks, and high levels of patient satisfaction, RADIESSE® fits the bill beautifully.
