Have Sunken Cheeks? Consider Voluma!

sunken-cheeks - Nuance Aesthetics in Salt Lake City, Utah

If you are getting older, you have more than likely noticed that your skin has developed some unwelcome changes. Problems like encroaching lines, wrinkles, and creased skin can make you appear old and tired. Another sign of facial aging is the development of sunken cheeks. Prominent cheeks are one of the hallmarks of youth, so this development can really give away your age.
Many people with sunken cheeks are looking for treatment options that do not involve surgery. Although cosmetic surgery is highly effective, many see it as being too risky and leading to results that appear unnatural. Thankfully, Voluma® exists.

What is Voluma®?

Voluma® is injected into your cheek area to lift the skin there and enhance volume that has been lost due to the aging process. It contains a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar that is naturally-occurring within your body. Voluma® is the only non-surgical option approved by the FDA for the treatment of age-related facial volume loss in the cheeks for adult patients. It has also been approved for use in Europe for sunken cheeks since 2005.

It is important to understand that Voluma® is normally used for the correction of cheek or mid-face volume loss and to help form a more youthful contour around high areas of the cheekbones. The product has been highly successful for volumizing, lifting, and re-contouring certain facial areas.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The answer depends on your unique genetics, environmental exposures, and lifestyle habits, among other factors. Generally, the results will last up to two years. Other factors that influence the length of time that your results will last include your weight, health, and body chemistry.

Jackson Rhudy, MD

Owner/Medical Director

Dr. Jackson Rhudy is a board-certified physician who has been practicing in Salt Lake since 1974. After an initial career in emergency medicine, he developed an interest in the new technologies emerging in the field of aesthetics utilizing non-surgical techniques such as lasers, Botox, and injectable fillers. He sought training from leading experts in the aesthetic field at multiple locations in the US and Europe and in 2000 he founded an aesthetic practice called Light Touch Laser Skin Care Center. It rapidly became a leading aesthetic practice in the Salt Lake City area. In 2010, he sold the practice and focused on his other endeavor, Optimum Clinical Research– a private research site that performs clinical trials on new pharmaceutical drugs. But continuing demand from former aesthetic patients led to the formation of a new aesthetic practice in July 2015. Reuniting with a former colleague, Jill Miller, they started Nuance Aesthetics—a practice devoted to providing excellence in the field of non-surgical aesthetics by offering experience and expertise with the utmost integrity. Dr. Rhudy maintains his board certification in emergency medicine and is the only physician in Salt Lake City who is board certified in laser surgery.

When Dr Rhudy isn’t in the office, he loves riding his bike up City Creek. He has always had a passion for learning and growing in the medical field which is why he spends a lot of free time researching the latest treatments and technology that keeps Nuance ahead of the curve.
