JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler FDA-approved for restoring midfacial volume and providing lift to the cheeks. One of several non-surgical facial rejuvenation options available at KU Facial Plastic Surgery, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can provide long-lasting results for treatment of age-related volume loss in the midface.

Aesthetic change of the midface commonly treated with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC include:

  • Volume loss in the cheeks
  • Hollowing below the cheek bones
  • Deep folds and creases around the nose and mouth
  • Fat loss in the temples
  • Hollowing beneath the eyes


JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is a thick-consistency hyaluronic acid gel customized for deep injection, volume restoration applications. Compared to other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in the JUVÉDERM® family, which includes JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC has a thicker consistency which delivers long-lasting volume that “lifts” the midface to a more youthful position. The JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC formula also contains patented VYCROSS® technology, which is a method of molecule crosslinking that aids in the structure, cohesion and longevity of the product when it is in the body. Results achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can often last up to two years, sometimes longer.


FDA-approved JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC by Allergan is a clinically tested and widely used product. As skilled and highly-trained facial plastic surgeons, Dr. J. David Kriet and Dr. Clinton D. Humphrey have extensive experience with various volumizing hyaluronic acid fillers and will carefully select the most appropriate option for achieving the patient’s unique aesthetic goals. For patients seeking to address volume loss in the midface while restoring a more youthful facial appearance, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC may provide an excellent, long-lasting option for rejuvenation.

Treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC

Before applying JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, Dr. Kriet or Dr. Humphrey will determine which areas require treatment to achieve the patient’s cosmetic goals. To direct and guide the injection process, markings may be made on the skin. The doctor will then use an ultra fine needle to inject the areas of volume loss until the desired enhancement is obtained. Ever careful to maintain symmetry and smoothness among the treatment areas, our facial plastic surgeons are highly skilled JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectors that are extremely knowledgeable about proper placement, injection and manipulation techniques for delivering specific aesthetic results.


The results of treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can last anywhere from one to two years with optimal application. In some instances, Dr. Kriet or Dr. Humphrey may suggest a follow-up retouch visit to ensure smooth, even volume restoration after the first application. Each patient’s skin may respond to JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC differently, and giving the first treatment time to assimilate before reapplication is vital to achieving a superior result. Because JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC lasts longer than many hyaluronic acid fillers on the market, it is wise to proceed conservatively so that results can be gradually augmented if needed.
