Juvéderm VOLUMA® XC in Algonquin

Wrinkles aren't the only thing that can make you look older than your age—thinning tissues around the mid-face can have just as big an impact, causing cheeks to appear hollowed or sagging. VOLUMA XC is an injectable designed to restore youthful volume to the cheeks, with nearly instant results and zero downtime.

Initital Recovery Time: None
Final Results: 2 weeks

Aging or weight loss can impact the facial structures by producing a hollowed, deflated look to cheeks. These effects can make a person look haggard, tired or older than their actual age.

VOLUMA XC is a more recent Juvéderm product specially formulated to produce long lasting structural soft tissue support to the upper face. One treatment session can restore youthful volume to cheeks with immediate results and no downtime.

How VOLUMA XC works to restore a more youthful cheek contour

Like other Juvéderm products, VOLUMA XC is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring component of young, healthy skin. However, the molecules of hyaluronic acid in VOLUMA XC have a unique structure that results in a thicker product, which can be injected more deeply beneath the dermis to reshape the entire cheek area. VOLUMA XC produces soft, natural looking and feeling improvements in cheek contour with no surgery or downtime.

A skilled, experienced physician injector can achieve a number of improvements in the mid-face using VOLUMA XC, including:

  • Restoring fullness to thinning cheeks
  • Subtly lifting lax skin around the cheeks
  • Softening your overall facial appearance
  • Augmenting the “apple” of your cheeks

What to expect with VOLUMA XC injections in Algonquin

VOLUMA XC injections can be performed during a convenient office visit at Dr. Thors practice in Algonquin. After an initial evaluation and review of your goals, Dr. Thors will prep your skin and mark the injection points. The VOLUMA XC is then injected into the right locations to achieve a beautiful, natural looking result. Following treatment, you will receive instructions to maintain your results.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients need only one treatment session, using two syringes of VOLUMA XC, to achieve their desired result. On average, the effect of VOLUMA XC lasts for 18 to 24 months, although every patient is different. To maintain your results, you can return to our office for a touch-up after about 12 to 14 months, before the initial effect wears off completely.
