Restore Cheek Volume with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC

Category: Demonstration


Check out the video above to see our awesome injection specialists Pam Jendritz, RN, and Jeanne Eyde, DO, perform a Voluma™ XC demonstration to restore natural contour to the cheek area.

This new FDA approved filler is the first and only of its kind that can last up to two years to restore volume to the mid-face. While Juvederm smoothes fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth or adds fullness to the lips, Voluma™ XC is only used in the cheeks.

Our patient Christina noticed volume loss in her cheeks, particularly on the right side of her face where she sleeps. Dr. Jeanne Eyde used two syringes of Voluma™ XC for her treatment. Your treatment may vary depending on the contouring needed.

Because Juvederm is injected deeper, you’ll notice only a slight redness after your treatment that can be covered with light makeup before you return to your daily activities. If you’re interested in learning more about how Voluma™ XC can work for you, call 616.451.4500 to schedule your complimentary consultation.

This season is the perfect time for skin rejuvenation while your sun exposure is limited. One of our popular laser skin treatments is performed with the VBeam Laser, a pulsed dye laser that targets rosacea, facial veins, and facial redness without downtime away from your daily activities.

The VBeam delivers a strong, but gentle burst of light into a targeted area where it is absorbed by blood vessels or pigmentation in the skin without damaging the surrounding area. Your laser treatment will be customized according to the condition being treated and your skin type to give you a renewed, even skin tone.

Most patients compare the sensation of the laser to a warming or tingling sensation. For your comfort, the laser delivers a cooling mist onto the skin while the pulse is emitted.

Our patient Nancy in our video above has lots of facial redness, especially in her cheeks. VBeam is an excellent treatment option to reduce the appearance of these vessels & the associated redness for a more even complexion. You will be in and out of our office in just under an hour.

Patients may experience redness or mild swelling following the treatment that disappears within a few hours. Sometimes, a laser bruise called “purpura” may occur that disappears in about three to five days to uncover your refreshed, healthy skin.

We recommend you avoid sun exposure before and throughout your recovery to maximize results. As always, we encourage patients to wear a daily sunblock of SPF 30 or higher even on overcast days.
