Midface volume loss is one of the most common effects of aging, and it can make your face look gaunt, hollow, and tired. The loss of volume also increases the prominence of facial wrinkles and fine lines. Juvéderm Voluma injections restore facial volume making the cheeks, chin and jawline distinct.

Dr. Vial also uses Juvéderm Voluma to perform liquid rhinoplasty.

What is Juvéderm Voluma?

Juvéderm Voluma is a firm long-acting injectable gel that restores volume to boney structures like the cheeks, jaw and chin. It is one of the world’s leading hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers.

During your treatment, your skin will be cleansed. Dr. Vial will mark the injection spots on your face; Juvéderm will then be injected into the targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles and cannulas. You may experience a mild pinch. The injections take minutes.
