A Great Filler for the Cheeks, Midface, and Jawline

Since it was approved by the FDA in the fall of 2013, there has been a lot of buzz about Allergan's JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC. As the name suggests, this dermal filler adds volume, specifically to sagging, flattened, or sunken cheeks. Dr. David Mabrie uses facial fillers such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC at his San Francisco practice to restore youthful-looking contours without surgery. Dr. Mabrie has dedicated himself to becoming an artist with facial injectables, and VOLUMA is one of many options he offers for revealing your most attractive face.

If you'd like to meet with Dr. Mabrie in San Francisco to discuss JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC or other options for enhancing your look, request a consultation online or call us at (415) 689-6634 today.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is an injectable gel filler that can restore volume to cheeks that look flat or sunken. As we age, facial skin, fat, and bones deteriorate, causing the cheeks and under eye area to wither. VOLUMA puts back the volume that time takes away, and creates a firm support structure for your skin, producing a lifted look that can take years off your face.

VOLUMA XC is a hyaluronic acid-based filler similar in formulation to its sister product, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, which Dr. Mabrie uses for small areas of the face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC uses a thicker formula of hyaluronic acid, though, which makes it more durable and appropriate for larger areas and deeper injection, such as the cheeks and the chin.

Dr. Mabrie can use VOLUMA XC on the cheekbones, as well as the hollows and apples of the cheeks, providing a look of youthful plumpness. He also uses the injectable filler for chin augmentation, because its formulation holds up well in this area, refining a person's profile without the need for surgical enhancement.

Additionally, VOLUMA XC is well suited for being combined with other dermal fillers and injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Volume restoration is a key component of facial rejuvenation, so Dr. Mabrie is pleased to have VOLUMA XC's lasting benefits as part of his toolkit.

JUVDERM Voluma®: What Makes It Different From Other Fillers?

December 2014


When used to restore volume to the cheeks or chin, VOLUMA produces results that can last from 12 to 24 months. When used for a nonsurgical chin augmentation, results may last 15 to 24 months.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Top 25 Most Loved Injector

One of the advantages of using dermal fillers is that they are minimally invasive. The most common effects patients experience are minor concerns around the injection sites, including swelling, irritation, redness, and light bruising, which all usually resolve within 1 or 2 days.

Dr. Mabrie also uses blunt-tipped microcannulas, which produce less bleeding and bruising afterward and make the treatment more comfortable. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately. Read more about what to expect from your treatment.

What Sets VOLUMA XC Apart?

One of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC's distinct advantages is its longevity. At up to 2 years, its results outlast many other dermal fillers that can be used in the cheeks. It provides a lifted appearance without the cost or other drawbacks of surgery.

Many patients are great candidates for facial rejuvenation with this safe and effective product. Dr. Mabrie can evaluate your appearance and your goals to determine if it's right for you.
