Your face goes through many changes as you age. The skin becomes thin and forms wrinkles, and the fat, muscle and bone begin to atrophy, leading to a loss of facial volume. The mid-face is where this loss of facial volume is most visible. As a result, you may notice you’re developing sunken cheeks and prominent nasolabial folds as the years go by.

In the past, this type of mid-face volume loss was treated either with invasive surgery or collagen injections. Today, however, dermal fillers like VOLUMA® XC are the preferred treatment.

VOLUMA® XC injections are a quick, safe and effective way to naturally lift the cheeks and add volume to the mid-face. This in-office treatment can help restore mid-face volume for a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.

At Wink Medical Aesthetics, our goal is to help you look like you, only better. That’s why we offer VOLUMA® XC to our Lakeway, TX, clients concerned about mid-face volume loss.


JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is one of several hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers developed by Allergan Aesthetics. This particular filler was designed to address mid-face volume loss and has been FDA-approved for use in those who are 21 years or older to provide lift and contour to the cheek area.

HA — the active ingredient in this dermal filler — is a sugar molecule that is naturally found in the skin and known to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. When the synthetic form of this molecule is injected under the skin, it adds immediate volume and lift, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, hollows and sagging skin. As the product settles underneath the skin, it temporarily improves mid-face contours.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is unique in the world of dermal fillers thanks to Vycross technology that makes it a thicker and longer-lasting product. In fact, it is one of the most durable HA fillers on the market, lasting up to two years, if not longer. Because the cheek area requires something stronger than your typical HA filler, VOLUMA® XC is the perfect solution with its high viscosity and durability.

If you are unhappy with your results or if you need to remove this filler for other reasons, we can dissolve it with a couple of injections of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down HA.


Dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC have become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to their countless benefits:

  • Instant lifting and volume enhancement of the cheeks
  • Long-lasting results (two years on average)
  • Safe and FDA-approved
  • Quick and painless procedure
  • Natural-looking results
  • Reversible, temporary treatment

The Treatment

After your initial consultation, in which we discuss your concerns and carefully examine your facial contours to determine if VOLUMA® is right for you, we will proceed with your treatment.

To perform the injections, we use a very thin cannula to administer the product in your cheek area. Because each injection contains lidocaine, you won’t feel pain during your treatment. The injection process should take only about 20 minutes to complete.

After your treatment, you can resume your daily routine and may experience only minor bruising and swelling.

The Results

JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC injections create immediate volumization and lifting. You will notice that your cheeks instantly look fuller and more defined. Your mid-face area may appear slightly lifted and your nasolabial folds less prominent.

Fillers need time to completely settle and integrate with the tissues, which means your full results won’t immediately reveal themselves. Expect to see your final result in approximately two weeks.

VOLUMA® results last one to two years for most people. The duration of your treatment will depend on how quickly your body dissolves and absorbs the product.

As an FDA-approved treatment, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC is considered safe, especially when performed by a trained and qualified professional. The active ingredient in this product is biocompatible, meaning it does not lead to an immune reaction or cause toxicity.

Are JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC injections painful?

Each JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC injection contains lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic. The cannulas used for this treatment are also thin and should not cause significant discomfort.

Are there any side effects with JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC?

Like most injectables, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC may lead to minor and transient side effects like swelling, tenderness, pain, itching, redness, bruising, lumps, bumps and discoloration. These side effects are usually moderate and tend to resolve on their own after two to four weeks.

What should I avoid after JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC?

To minimize your risk of swelling and bruising, you should avoid direct sun exposure, hot showers, steam and vigorous exercise for a day or two after your treatment. You may apply an ice pack to reduce any pain or swelling, but avoid pressing the skin as this can lead to product migration.

How long does JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC last?

The results of this treatment should last for at least a year and may last up to two years. To maintain your results for longer, you can request to get repeat JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC injections every two years.

The JUVÉDERM collection of fillers includes five other products: JUVÉDERM Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM Ultra Plus XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLUX™ XC. Each one contains hyaluronic acid in different formulations to address different needs and areas of the face.
