JUVÉDERM Voluma XC in Austin, TX

The providers at the Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery offer Voluma solutions for individuals in Austin and Sunset Valley, Texas. A youthful face is composed of many characteristics, all of which work together to give you the young luminous appearance that draws others to you. An attractive face free of sun damage, wrinkles and sagging skin is something many of us strive for, but unfortunately, Mother Nature often has other plans. Now physicians have another anti-aging solution available to them in the form of a new injectable filler. JUVÉDERM Voluma XC is Allergan’s latest injectable product. JUVÉDERM Voluma has been FDA approved to restore volume loss in the cheeks and promises long-lasting results when used correctly with advanced injection techniques.

JUVÉDERM Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler, much like the traditional JUVÉDERM products and Restylane, but rather than smoothing out wrinkles, it subtly lifts the cheeks and restores the contours of the face, reversing volume loss that occurs because of age. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body in the soft connective tissue and skin. The substance is a popular component of facial fillers due to its ability to retain water and help build collagen, a protein necessary to maintain a healthy skin structure and to prevent laxity. Over time, collagen production diminishes and the cheeks may become hollow, adding to an older appearance. With JUVÉDERM Voluma, the hyaluronic acid has been cross-linked to deliver natural-looking fullness and return essential moisture to the cheeks.

The more youthful profile may last up to 2 years under optimal treatment circumstances, making it a very desirable procedure. The procedure is quick, taking an average of 15 minutes. No downtime is required following treatment and patients may return to all normal activities soon thereafter. Some patients may experience moderate side effects, such as tenderness, swelling, redness or bruising. These side effects are temporary and generally last no longer than 1 to 2 weeks.


To learn more about JUVÉDERM Voluma and the benefits that injectable fillers have to offer, prospective patients should call the Buckingham Center to schedule a consultation.

Voluma Frequently Asked Questions

What is JUVÉDERM Voluma?

JUVÉDERM Voluma is a long-lasting injectable smooth gel filler composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The product has been approved by the FDA for injection into the cheek area for the purpose of restoring lost volume in the mid-face. Voluma is effective in all three areas of the cheek: the apex, apple and hollow.

Who is a good candidate for JUVÉDERM Voluma?

Good candidates for JUVÉDERM Voluma are individuals over the age of 21 who are in good general health and have concerns about volume loss in their cheeks.

Where is the JUVÉDERM Voluma procedure performed?

The JUVÉDERM Voluma procedure is performed in the office setting by either a provider or one of our Aesthetic Nurse Injectors.

What can I expect during the JUVÉDERM Voluma procedure?

A fine needle will be used to inject Voluma into the skin. The procedure is quick and easy and takes as little as 15 minutes. Anesthesia is not necessary since lidocaine is already included in the JUVÉDERM Voluma mixture. However, a topical anesthetic or another option may be used for sensitive patients. The results are immediately noticeable.

How long does the JUVÉDERM Voluma procedure last?

JUVÉDERM Voluma injections typically take between 15 and 20 minutes to perform. Patients who require treatment that is more extensive will have a longer procedure time.

Are JUVÉDERM Voluma injections painful?

When performed by an experienced physician or nurse injector, patients experience minimal discomfort. JUVÉDERM Voluma also includes a small dose of local anesthetic in the mixture, diminishing any pain felt during the procedure and for some time afterward. Your provider will be able to discuss other options with you, such as topical anesthesia, at your consultation to minimize your discomfort during injections. Tenderness of the treatment site is a side effect, but it is typically moderate and short lived.

What is recovery like after the JUVÉDERM Voluma procedure?

After Voluma injections, patients may return to their normal activities. There is virtually no downtime. Some side effects that are commonly seen in Voluma patients include bruising, redness, tenderness and swelling at the injection sites. In the vast majority of patients, these side effects are resolved within several days. The enduring results are rejuvenated cheeks that enhance the youthful appearance of the face.

How long do the results of a JUVÉDERM Voluma procedure last?

When used correctly, JUVÉDERM Voluma has the potential to show continued results for up to 2 years, much longer than with other hyaluronic acid fillers.
