Juvéderm® Voluma XC is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid and is the first and only filler that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, recontouring the cheeks for a more youthful-looking profile.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As we age, we start to lose HA, and this phenomenon causes our skin to lose structure and volume. Voluma not only restores the volume, but also provides more of an underlying structure to the skin.

One of the advantages of Voluma is that it can last up to two years – longer than most dermal fillers – and you can see results immediately after your injections.

At Cheng Plastic Surgery, Juvéderm® Voluma XC injections are administered personally by our double board-certified facial plastic surgeons who were selected as National Allergan Trainers. Both of our doctors are National Allergan Trainers, chosen by the company to instruct new providers on proper Juvéderm® Voluma XC injection techniques for the best results.

With their training and knowledge of Juvéderm® Voluma XC and facial anatomy, they can evaluate your face to determine the best positioning for your injections, as well as the proper dosage. This ensures that you will receive natural-looking results.

For wrinkles caused by muscle activity, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, Botox® injections work best. After we examine you, we will be able to advise you which injectable will provide you with the look you want. Sometimes, a combination of dermal fillers and Botox® is recommended. Be sure to ask us about the Brilliant Distinctions Patient Loyalty Program. You will earn points toward rebates on future treatments every time you have a Botox®, Juvéderm®, Juvéderm® Voluma XC, or Latisse® treatment in our office!

Your Juvéderm® Voluma XC Treatment

We will ask you to avoid aspirin and blood thinners for about a week before your injections. We administer Juvéderm® Voluma XC using a very small needle, so it is not a painful treatment. Lidocaine is included in the formula to numb the injection areas, but we can also apply a topical anesthetic to further numb the sites of the injections.

The injections themselves usually take no more than 30 to 45 minutes. Juvéderm® Voluma XC’s gel formula glides easily into the skin. Afterward, we may apply an ice pack to the area for a few minutes, but you can go home immediately.

If you are trying Juvéderm® Voluma XC for the first time, you might want to start with a small amount and add more in a second treatment, if you like. Since the product lasts a long time, you want to make sure that you do not end up with more fullness than you want. This also allows for the improvement to be more gradual so that others are less likely to notice that you have had a cosmetic treatment.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Monday, January 4, 2021:

We are open!

We cannot wait to see all of our amazing patients in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call our office from your car once you’ve arrived for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will not have more than one patient in the lobby at a time.
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. Each room is equipped with an air filter as an added safety measure. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Virtual Consultation

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you reschedule your appointment and do not enter our office with any of the following conditions:

  1. You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  2. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You traveled more than 150 miles or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the last 10 days.
  4. You are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    • fever or chills
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • fatigue
    • muscle or body aches
    • headaches
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

Concerned about getting the Moderna vaccine after having recently received filler treatment? In some studies, it has been observed that a small percentage of the vaccinated groups experienced localized inflammation (swelling) after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In said cases, all studied reactions were temporary immune responses. It has been suggested that patients refrain from getting filler two weeks before and after the vaccine. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office!

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
