Aging results in the reduction of collagen production in the body, which leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Loss of collagen not only results in wrinkles and folds, but can also result in volume loss of the facial skin leading to a sunken or hollow appearance. At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics Chicago we are committed to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals through non-surgical options. Juvederm Voluma® is a gel dermal filler that helps restore volume and contour to the midface and cheek area without surgery or recovery time.
