Juvederm Volbella® XC


Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Medical Spa now offers two products to enhance your lips, providing natural, long-lasting results. Juvéderm® Ultra XC has been effectively used in our practice to add volume to naturally thin lips, giving a fuller appearance. For those that have noticed their lips thinning over time, accompanied by vertical lip lines, Juvéderm Volbella® XC may be the ideal solution. Juvéderm Volbella® XC is the most recent addition to the Juvéderm® collection, created to add subtle volume to lips while smoothing the appearance of vertical lip lines, for up to one year.


Juvéderm Volbella® XC is an ideal treatment option for adults over the age of 21 who wish to correct thinning lips. The injectable is also an excellent choice for men and women who wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the lips without undergoing an invasive surgical treatment. Juvéderm Volbella® XC is recommended for patients who wish for a safe, easy procedure that is long-lasting and has little recovery time.

How is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC Administered?

Injectable fillers are safe, simple procedures that are administered directly in our office. These procedures are especially popular because they can be completed in as little as one hour and allows patients to return to their everyday activities immediately following treatment. At Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery, one of our board-certified injectors will gently inject the Juvéderm Volbella® XC solution directly into the target areas with minimal discomfort.  The product itself contains lidocaine to help reduce discomfort, and patients are encouraged to take advantage of the complimentary topical numbing creams and ice packs available in our private waiting room.

“I cannot thank Dr. Humphrey and staff enough for the outstanding service. My results are better than I ever imagined. 10/10 recommend him for any and all cosmetic needs! ❤️”

“Wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend it, they went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable, and even when I had an emergency regarding finances due to my bank they made it a point to stay open later than they had to until I had it straightened out. They make sure that you understand everything that it is done and it’s a huge confidence booster!”

“Dr. Humphrey, Thank you, thank you, thank you for what my husband calls “luscious lips.” I love them! I have had filler put in them three times – none with the look you gave me. In the future, “My Lips Are Yours,” when it comes to injecting them with filler. Thank you for the fantastic results.”

What Can I Expect After JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?

Unlike other providers, master injectors have extensive training in safety, facial anatomy, the risks and benefits of individual products, and creating a customized treatment plan to help patients reach their goal results. At Heartland Plastic Surgery, our master injector, J. Stewart Humphrey, MD, is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience in the Cape Girardeau area.

Juvéderm® treatments are popular thanks to their fast results and lack of recovery time. You’ll begin to see the results almost immediately following treatment, with results that can last up to one year. You may experience slight redness, swelling, or tenderness around the injection site. These symptoms are normal and should subside shortly after treatment. If possible, it is important to avoid using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinners prior to the procedure, as they may result in increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site.

The Importance of Master Injectors

As a master injector, Dr. Humphrey is credentialed to deliver excellent results and ensure a patient’s health and safety when providing dermal fillers or Botox. Master injector training builds on his expertise in plastic surgery, offering patients superior results. Dr. Humphrey knows how to avoid the “frozen” look that improper Botox injections can result in or the “overfilled” look of improper dermal filler injections. Instead, patients enjoy excellent, natural-looking results tailored to their unique facial anatomy and aesthetic preferences.
