A youthful smile is often highlighted by the full, round apples of the cheeks. But as we age, the cheeks flatten and become hollowed as volume under the skin is lost and facial muscles sag toward the jawline. If you'd like to renew your look instantly by restoring volume to the cheeks, consider JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC in Albany, N.Y. at The Plastic Surgery Group. Our board-certified plastic surgeons personally perform these and other injectable anti-aging treatments with refined attention to aesthetics.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a new injectable filler that is made with hyaluronic acid. It is the first injectable filler FDA-approved to restore volume to all 3 areas of the cheeks: the apex, apple, and hollow. While JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is part of the same product family as JUVÉDERM®, they have distinct uses; JUVÉDERM is an excellent wrinkle filler and made to fill out lines and folds around the nose and mouth.
If you are older than age 21 and would like to add volume to your cheeks, VOLUMA XC may be right for you. Our patients have discovered that these treatments can result in a non-surgical facial rejuvenation that takes years off their appearance.
This innovative filler offers patients a variety of benefits, including:
In New York, prices for VOLUMA vary widely. Be sure to choose an injector who is experienced in restoring facial volume, which is a more complex procedure than filling wrinkles. At The Plastic Surgery Group, we charge $700 for a single syringe, $1,300 for 2, and $1,800 for 3 syringes. Most patients require 2 syringes to augment the cheeks.
VOLUMA XC treatments are performed by our board-certified plastic surgeons as an office treatment that usually takes about 5 minutes. Because this filler contains numbing medicine, the injections are very tolerable.
After your treatment, you should wait 24 hours before exercising.
If you have early signs of facial aging, VOLUMA XC can postpone the need for a facelift or cheek implants by restoring volume to the cheeks. Our plastic surgeons can provide a non-surgical facelift by combining VOLUMA XC injections with other injectable treatments such as JUVÉDERM for folds and lines in the mouth area and BOTOX® Cosmetic to smooth out wrinkles around the eyes and lines on the forehead.
Injectable treatments offer patients an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery. It's important, however, that the treatments are performed by qualified medical professionals. At The Plastic Surgery Group, our board-certified plastic surgeons perform all VOLUMA XC treatments to ensure their effectiveness and safety.
Side effects from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC are typically mild and may last 2 to 4 weeks after injection. The most common side effects include tenderness, moderate swelling and bruising, and redness in the treated areas.
