Voluma XC in Chicago and Naperville – John Bull, MD, FACS
What Is Voluma XC?
Voluma XC is the latest FDA-approved filler and the only approved filler for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face. It has been available in Europe for four years with positive results.
One of the first signs of aging is the development of facial folds called “nasolabial folds,” which are a result of volume loss in the cheek as well as other factors. Many people get injections to treat just these folds, but many times the problem is mid-face volume loss – which is where Voluma XC comes in.
Voluma XC contains hyaluronic acid, a component of your natural skin that is also found in other products like Juvéderm, Belotero and Perlane. In Voluma XC this component is cross-linked differently, so the results last longer than with any other hyaluronic-acid-based fillers. Studies show that the results of Voluma XC last approximately two years, with a minimal touch-up.
Imagine coming in for volume restoration once every two years to maintain a youthful look! I am proud to be one of the first in Naperville to use and offer Voluma XC, and I believe it is a great longer-term solution for volume restoration.
Similar to other injectable treatments like Juvéderm, Voluma XC has few side effects. The product contains a numbing medicine to make treatment more comfortable. Voluma XC has been very well tolerated, and patients really like the results and the long-lasting effects.
