One of our fave fillers for cheek enhancement (and a little mid-face lift!)
Juvéderm VOLUMA™ XC is an injectable filler designed specifically for adding lift and volume to the entire cheek area. Strong and durable, yet soft and natural-feeling, a single VOLUMA XC treatment can take your cheeks from flat to fabulous in a matter of minutes.
How VOLUMA works to give you great results
VOLUMA is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), the same soft, natural gel-like substance found in all Juvéderm fillers. The only difference is in how VOLUMA is formulated. VOLUMA XC contains HA particles of different sizes, which “cross-linked” (that’s a fancy phrase for how the HA particles are connected) very tightly, resulting in a thicker—but still very flexible—gel that can be injected deeper underneath the skin and over a larger area.
These unique properties make VOLUMA excellent for adding very natural looking shape and volume to the entire cheek contour.
Same Day & Late Appointments
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC treatments can be done in our La Jolla office by appointment, and you may be able to come in on the same day you call!
We reserve time in our schedules for fillers and Botox appointments. We can also see you during your lunch break, or in the evening on certain days of the week.

Is VOLUMA XC the right filler for me?
VOLUMA XC is one of our favorite fillers to use for patient who want to enhance the cheeks or rejuvenate the mid-face. You’ll likely benefit from VOLUMA XC if you’d like to accomplish any of the following:
- Restore a more youthful look if you feel your cheeks look a little flat or hollow due to aging
- Enhance the shape and definition of your cheeks without surgery
- Correct mild sagging in the mid-face
- Get rounder, softer-looking cheeks
How long does VOLUMA XC last?
VOLUMA can last up to 2 years when administered by an experienced, qualified provider. Just like all Juvéderm fillers (and all the fillers we offer here at LJCMS), your body will naturally absorb the VOLUMA gel over time.
These long-lasting effects make it a great cost-effective alternative for shaping the cheeks, providing a happy medium between facial implants and less durable filler options that aren’t specifically designed for the cheeks.
Do VOLUMA XC injections hurt?
VOLUMA already has a mild anesthetic (lidocaine) added to the syringe to enhance your comfort during treatment. Most patients describe a pinching feeling and pressure as the filler is added; this can be a little uncomfortable for some, but even in these cases our patients do not report pain.
The most common side effects after treatment are tenderness, swelling, bruising, and redness. These are temporary and should resolve within about 2 weeks.
Enjoy pain-free filler injections with add-on option PRO-NOX™
Every patient deserves a comfortable experience, so we now offer an add-on option to use PRO-NOX™ during injectables, laser treatments, and other medical spa services.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a self-administered nitrous oxide (laughing gas) system that allows you to be in full control of your comfort. If at any point you feel you need something to take the edge off, simply breathe through the PRO-NOX™ mouthpiece for instant relief from pain and anxiety.
Unlike oral pain medication, PRO-NOX™ takes effect in seconds, but these effects wear off minutes after your treatment, leaving no trace of the chemical in your body. You can safely drive and return to your normal routine without worrying about side effects.
Ask us about adding PRO-NOX™ to your treatment at your consultation, or contact us for more information!
