Losing volume in the cheeks is a common age-related occurrence that causes people to look haggard and older than their years. Now, lost volume can be restored with injections of Voluma, a facial filler that both lifts and contours cheeks. Inland Empire board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers, and the aestheticians of Sheer Beauty will inject the filler into a patient's mid-face to provide plumper, more youthful looking cheeks. Not only are cheeks restored without surgery and downtime, but results can last up to 2 years. When patients receive additional treatments, less product is needed to obtain optimal results.

"Glennda Rios is a life saver when it comes to skincare. Im almost 34, I suffer with a hormonal imbalance and I get "sun spots" or melasma as well as hormonal acne. I have been a patient of hers intermittently for many years. Like many of us, I slacked off in my skin care regime and now Glennda and I are working together so I can have happy, healthy skin again. I am a huge fan of the Vi PEEL, the Hydra Facial and many other products and services by Glennda. I really appreciate her broad knowledge of products and treatments as well as her ability to "read" your skin and know just how gentle or aggressive she can be to help you get the results you want. I'm going to attempt to post a before and after pic. The image on the left is on 5/8/18 and the one on the right is 5/19/18 today. Thank you for all you do Glennda. Beauty starts on the inside and you are a true reflection of that!"- H.R. / Yelp / May 19, 2018

What to Expect
Using a thin syringe, the cosmetic surgeon injects Voluma into the apex, apple and hollow of the patient’s cheek. Results are immediate, and can last up to 2 years. Side effects are considered mild to moderate, and can last between 2 and 4 weeks. The most common side effects are tenderness, swelling, firmness, bumps, bruising, redness, itching or discoloration at the injection site.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
This is a naturally occurring substance that helps bind water to cells. Its cross-linking abilities help provide lifting capacity, which restores volume in the cheeks and mid-face.
The plastic surgeon will help you create a unique treatment plan during your consultation. With extensive experience in a wide array of different fillers and relaxers, the cosmetic surgeon may include a combination of different fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results.
There is no downtime after a Voluma treatment. Patients can return to their normal activities, but it is suggested that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours after any injectable filler treatments.
The results can be seen immediately, and can last up to 2 years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated, and the rate the patient’s tissue breaks down the filler.
