Austin-Based Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Has Developed a Novel Use for Hyaluronic Acid Filler Juvederm Voluma XC

Edward Buckingham, MD, a renowned facial plastic surgeon at Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Austin, TX, has developed an exciting new application for the popular hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm Voluma XC, by using the product to fill in infraorbital hollows. Dr. Buckingham was interviewed about this new technique by Steven Dayan, MD, another renowned facial plastic surgeon from the University of Illinois at Chicago on Monday, March 12, 2018. Dr. Buckingham discussed his findings gained from more than a year of working with patients to develop this exciting new minimally invasive treatment.

Juvederm Voluma XC, a long-lasting hyaluronic acid filler, is typically used to rejuvenate and restore lost facial volume in the cheeks and midface. From February 2016 to March 2017, Dr. Buckingham and his associate Michael B. Hall, MD, worked with 101 patients to determine the effectiveness of Voluma specifically in filling infraorbital (under-eye) hollows, another common aesthetic concern. After treatment, follow-up assessment took place after approximately 12 months. Very few side effects were noted, and only 18% of patients needed a touchup procedure after one month. Dr. Buckingham’s findings were very encouraging, obtaining high overall satisfaction rates from two different validated, patient centric surveys. Patients who underwent this treatment achieved a smoother, more youthful under-eye appearance. It is attributed to Voluma’s greater stability and longer in vivo duration relative to other Juvederm productions that makes it ideal for volumizing the infraorbital region.
