Voluma XC™ in Chicago

As we age our knowledge and expertise increases for sure but we lose our youthful skin, our youthful overall look. Aging results in a sagging face. The entire face, from bones to fat to soft tissues loses volume, and gravity pulls the skin down and converts your once attractive face to a face featuring sagging skin and wrinkles. This is especially pronounced in the mid-face under the eyes, cheeks and temples, creating wrinkles under the eyes/tear troughs and temple hollowness. Truth is, as we age, in order to restore that youthful, exuberant look, we can fill in those hollowed areas. That’s where Allergan’s latest and greatest product, Juvederm Voluma XC can help.

Between each and every cell in our body is a fluid space, filled primarily with hyaluronic acid. This is the reason we hold water and why we are plump and soft. As we age, we hold less and less water because the hyaluronic acid deteriorates, unless we infuse it with natural hyaluronic acid injections like Voluma XC.

What is Voluma XC?

Voluma XC is an injectable gel (hyaluronic acid) filler used to enhance and volumize cheeks, chin and/or deep creases or furrows.

What is Voluma XC comprised of?

Voluma XC’s primary ingredient is a natural hyaluronic acid gel, which already naturally exists in the human body. However, as we age, the hyaluronic acid that naturally exists in our face diminishes, which makes Juvederm Voluma XC a great treatment option for an aging face. A minute amount of lidocaine (anesthetic) also is found in Juvederm Voluma XC, which helps keep the actual treatment comfortable for the patient.

Frequently Asked Questions


Voluma XC is injected painlessly with a tiny needle, primarily in these areas:

  • cheeks
  • chin
  • deep smile lines

Yes, Voluma XC is unlike any hyaluronic acid filler we’ve ever seen because of what Allergan has dubbed VYCROSS technology. The VYCROSS technology creates a filler that is composed of mostly low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (LMWHA) and only 10 percent high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (HMWHA). What does that mean for the patient? A lot. Here’s why the VYCROSS technology is beneficial for the patient:

  • It makes the filler much smoother, which means it’s easily injected into the skin
  • In turn, the patient experiences a painless injection with minimal discomfort
  • Because of the extra smoothness, the injector has more freedom to mold and sculpt the filler once injected
  • The finished product gives the patient a natural look and feel
  • Additionally, research demonstrates the high viscosity resulting from the VYCROSS technology contained within Voluma XC allows it to retain its molecular structure after treatment, even when injected deeper into the skin, or below the skin. With a higher degree of crosslinking, Voluma XC allows for:
  • Long-lasting results because of a higher resistance to degradation caused by free radicals and enzymes – results have been recorded to last up to 18 months or even 24 months.
  • Predictability in achieving the desired improvement because of its cohesive nature
  • Capable of providing the optimal lift of sagging contours
  • “Passes the kiss test” says Dr.Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian, M.D. and Leslie Forrester R.N.,B.S.N.

Anyone wants to enhance, define or lift their cheeks or chin.

The procedure will take about 15 minutes.


Usually only one.

The Voluma XC treatment is a non-surgical treatment. There is no down time. Patients return to normal activities immediately.

Most of our patients require one-to-two vials in their cheeks to achieve facial rejuvenation.

Results vary individually but are also injection technique dependent. Our skilled injection technique we call “Voluma Chicago” may last up to two years.
