Vycross Technology

Vycross technology is the term that Allergan uses to describe the unique cross linking of high and low weight HA in their Voluma and Volbella fillers. It is what allows these fillers to restore volume in a natural looking way. Hope this helps.

Fillers keep Evolving

Vycross technology is terminology that comes from the manufacturer Allergan.  It uses an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight HA* to improve the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains.  This gives different qualities to the filler, and in my opinion I strongly prefer the Allergan products:  Voluma, Juvederm Ultra XC, and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC.  An expert injector can see the difference when injecting the face between various brands, as well as the duration of the product.

What does Vycross Technology mean?

Thank you for your excellent question. Vycross refers to the cross-linking achieved in Allergan's dermal filler line which currently only involves Voluma in the US, though Volbella is soon to be available.  Vycross is a step up in HA technology as it allows for greater malleability/moldability, longer-lasting effects, less swelling, and can create greater lift and projection.  Hope that this helps.

Vycross technology

Thank you for your question. Voluma is a filler used to enhance the appearance of the face. Voluma uses what is called Vycross technology, as compared with the hylacross technology used in Juvederm. This is a difference in the chemistry in that there is more cross-linking between the hyaluronic acid molecules. This makes it last longer, and at the same time more difficult to dissolve. This is the same technology as in Volbella, which will be available in October 2016 in the US. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations.  Good luck!

Vycross Technology is an excellent way that Juvederm has evolved which makes it more "spongy" and gives you an immediate lift.  Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green

Vycross Technology: Improvment for Facial Sculpting Using Fillers Like Voluma

Vycross technology improves hyaluronic acid fillers so they have more volume, more moldability and staying power, and less swelling. Juvederm Voluma uses Vycross technology, which is why it can be used to build areas like the cheek. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Voluma Vycross Technology

Thank you for your excellent question.  Vycross technology is a term used to describe the increased cross-linking between hyaluronic acid molecules in the filler Voluma.  Voluma is a great product used to restore age-related volume loss in the midface or cheek area.  The increased cross-linking creates greater thickness, malleability and longevity, optimal for deeper injection in the cheeks.  Hope this helps and best wishes!

Vycross Technology

 #Vycross is the term Allergan has chosen to apply to their proprietary technology of cross-linking hyaluronic acid molecules. By creating crosslinks between both high molecular weight and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules, their Vycross hyaluronic acid fillers are easier to mould and have greater longevity. Vycross is used in Viluma, Volift, and Volbella.  I hope this is helpful.  Dr. Clark
