Juvéderm VOLUMA XC: Restore Youthful Volume to Cheeks Without Surgery
When we think of facial aging, we often think of wrinkles first. However, lost volume in the middle of the face—namely the cheek area—can have just as great an impact on our appearance. Sunken, flat or hollow looking cheeks can make a person appear older or less vibrant than she feels. Juvéderm VOLUMA™ XC can help reverse this unwelcome sign of aging by restoring volume to the cheeks, giving them a subtle lift and more youthful contour that enhances the entire face.
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC: Naturally Younger-Looking Cheeks, Instantly
Like its sister product, Juvéderm, Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in healthy skin. VOLUMA has a slightly different molecular structure that allows it to be injected deeper beneath the skin. This makes Juvéderm VOLUMA XC better suited to adding volume to the cheek structures instead of more surface-level wrinkles. Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is the only filler proven to last up to 2 years in the cheek area.*
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is designed to produce a subtle cheek enhancement, yet a noticeable improvement in the softness and youthfulness of the mid-face.
- Results are immediate and last up to 2 years
- Treatment is quick and requires little to no downtime
- Juvéderm VOLUMA XC patients in a clinical study were reported to look up to 5 years younger after treatment
What is Juvéderm VOLUMA XC treatment like?
Dr. Kirby performs Juvéderm VOLUMA XC injections at her Ft. Worth plastic surgery practice by appointment. Treatments typically last about 15-30 minutes, and you can return to your normal day right after you leave our office. While injections are typically not painful, you may be given a topical anesthetic to enhance comfort.
What side effects are possible?
Most patients experience little in the way of negative side effects after Juvéderm VOLUMA XC injections. The most common side effects are redness, bruising or tenderness at the injection site, mild swelling and a slightly lumpy feeling beneath the skin. These effects typically wear off within 1 to 2 weeks following treatment.
Am I a good candidate for VOLUMA XC?
Juvéderm VOLUMA XC is FDA approved and indicated to correct mild to moderate volume loss in the cheeks. The best candidates are those who have noticed a “flattening” or loss of definition in the cheek area due to age-related volume changes, but who have otherwise good skin tone. VOLUMA can also help to subtly enhance the cheek area for patients who have always felt their cheeks lacked volume. If you have more severe sagging skin, a facelift, with or without complementary injectable fillers, may be necessary to achieve your desired results.

Juvéderm Ultra XC for Fuller, Smoother Lips
Unfortunately, the aging process doesn’t leave our lips alone. Volume loss can cause the lips to appear thinner and result in vertical lip lines that are difficult to hide with make-up. Juvéderm Ultra XC is a special formulation of Juvéderm XC that is excellent for injection into the lips to add plumpness and reduce vertical lines.
Juvéderm Ultra XC is also an excellent filler option for patients who have always wanted fuller lips.
Why Choose Juvéderm Ultra XC?
While all Juvederm products are made from a smooth hyaluronic acid gel, Juvéderm Ultra XC has a thinner consistency that makes it ideal for filling in fine lines in the lips and providing a more natural looking and feeling lip augmentation.
How much Juvéderm Ultra XC do I need?

Why choose Kirby Plastic Surgery for Juvéderm XC or VOLUMA XC treatment?

- Avoid alcohol 2-3 days before your appointment
- Exercise early so you are cooled off at the time of your appointment
