Mid Face Volumization

The midface is considered the facial area from the lower eyelids to the cheeks and is easily prone to showing the effects of aging. Typically, these signs of facial maturity will take the form of volume loss, causing the cheeks to sag and skin folds to form. Fortunately, there are ways to diminish the presence of these undesirable effects. This is where cosmetic injectables can help. At Dermlounge we use dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC to aid in boosting volume in the midface area. Drs. Zemmel leads a highly credentialed team of medical professionals who administer these injections, providing natural-looking results.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC

The cosmetic filler we use at Dermlounge to volumize the midface is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. This injectable has been FDA-approved to specifically treat signs of aging in the midface region, which are most commonly caused by volume loss. It is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA) which hydrates and plumps the cheeks to provide a fuller appearance. If you would like to receive a more contoured and youthful appearance, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC may be a viable option if you are over the age of 21.

Procedure

After arriving to our office for your appointment, you will be shown to a treatment room. We will complete a facial evaluation to understand the areas you would like to address and discuss any potential side effects with you. As this dermal filler is created with lidocaine, the first injection will be administered and a numbing sensation should start to take effect. Once this occurs, any remaining product will be delivered using an ultrafine needle. In clinical studies, this procedure causes only minimal discomfort and offers long-term results. These can be apparent in the midface and cheeks immediately, creating a more volumized look.

The results commonly last up to two years, but touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired aesthetic long-term.

Recovery

Following the administration of this injectable, ice may be applied to the face to reduce redness and swelling. Overall, patients should be able to resume normal activities within 24 hours as this is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment. Other personalized recommendations will be provided during the consultation from our team.
