Over time, the skin will begin to lose its youthful elasticity, causing wrinkles and deep lines to form. Sun damage, weight changes, smoking, and genetics can make these changes even more dramatic, adding unwanted years onto the appearance. Unfortunately, no lotions or moisturizers can turn back the hands of time. While traditional dermal fillers are successful at smoothing facial lines, the results are short lived. Today, however, the Juvederm family of soft tissue fillers offers patients a long-lasting alternative: Vollure.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Juvederm Vollure XC is an innovative dermal filler, made from hyaluronic acid (HA). Created using a unique formulation, made from Juvederm’s trusted Vycross technology, Vollure is perfect for plumping moderate to severe wrinkles and smoothing deep nasolabial folds. The filler can also restore volume across the cheekbones and the jawline, enhancing the facial features for a younger appearance. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a safe and effective treatment, Juvederm Vollure XC is a long-lasting dermal filler, providing results that last for up to 18 months.
Juvederm Vollure XC can:
- Smooth deep nasolabial folds (between nose and mouth)
- Ease moderate to severe facial lines
- Restore volume across the cheeks
- Enhance the jawline
- Provide results lasting up to 18 months
Treatment with Juvederm Vollure XC
At Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, each Juvederm Vollure XC session is performed in a private treatment room. In most cases, the treatment takes less than half an hour to perform. Using a very small needle or a blunt cannula, the provider will place Vollure under the skin, smoothing lines and creating the desired facial volume.
Injections with Vollure are not considered painful. Most patients report a slight pinch or pull during the injection. However, Juvederm Vollure XC is premixed with a local anesthetic, lidocaine. With each injection, the treatment area is gently numbed, ensuring patient comfort.
The benefits of Juvederm Vollure XC can be seen immediately. Over the next several days, as any remaining redness or swelling dissipates, the results will continue to improve. Vollure’s HA also encourages the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, further extending the benefits of treatment. Patients can expect the results from Vollure to last for up to 18 months, depending on the treatment area and extent of correction. Once the results begin to fade, a second Juvederm Vollure XC session can maintain the smooth, contoured skin and wrinkle-free results.
