Voluma XC, the latest entry into the world of cosmetic injectables, has generated a great deal of excitement among industry professionals and their patients. Developed by Allergan, which also manufacturers Botox and Juvederm, Voluma XC is the first and only filler that has been FDA-approved to instantly add volume and a youthful lift to the cheek area. Like many dermal fillers, Voluma XC is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body that is biodegradable and safe. It also includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic that makes the treatment nearly pain free. And, best of all, it’s been clinically proved to last up to two years with full correction! Only a handful of doctors in the Chicago area have been selected to offer this innovative facial filler, and Dr. Epstein is one of them. He, along with his aesthetic nurse injector, have completed the “Master Course” training that is required to administer this groundbreaking, highly advanced, injectable.
