With age, volume loss in our face, along with an increase of lines, wrinkles, and folds is inevitable. Surgical options may be considered to help alter these facial flaws, but many of our patients are looking for less invasive procedures with long-lasting results. With bone and fat loss, replacing volume must be step one for reviving your youthful appearance. Using a strategic placement of fillers to fill the void left by volume loss, a younger appearance can be had without surgery.
What Is Juvéderm Vollure?
Juvéderm Vollure is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler created to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds present in the mid-face area. The development of dermal fillers is evolving, and manufacturers continue to find ways to employ these products to better serve patients with better results.
Juvéderm Vollure is a product of Vycross technology. This technology includes merging high and low molecular weight for improved cross-linking of the material’s hyaluronic chains. Several dermal filler products consist of hyaluronic acid, a replacing ingredient that fills in wrinkles caused by age. An even better feature of the substance is to hold moisture in the skin without allowing an undue amount of water. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally occurs in the human body.
Juvéderm Vollure Can:
- Diminish the lines that exist between the corners of your mouth and along your jawline and chin (marionette lines)
- Increase volume to the wrinkles from the corners of your mouth to the corners of your nose (nasolabial folds)
- Diminish wrinkles and lines that are considered moderate to severe
- Rejuvenate the lower face
How Long Does Vollure last?
The FDA approved Vollure for the treatment of wrinkles and line improvement for up to 18 months. According to their study, 68% of patients were very satisfied with their outcome at the 18-month mark.
Is Vollure Painful?
Vollure’s marketed name is Juvéderm Vollure XC. The XC indicates there is a numbing agent included in the syringe to allow for comfortable treatment. A numbing cream for pretreatment is also available if you prefer added pain blockage.
How is Vollure Different from Voluma?
Vollure has a molecular weight mix specific for the mid-face with moderate to severe lines and folds. Voluma is weighted heavier and not as elastic, making it more suitable for the cheek area that requires a stiffer filler.
Generally, you can expect the denser fillers to be used in areas that require deeper levels of product injection and thinner fillers to be used in areas that are frequently mobile.
Ideal Candidates for Vollure
- Typically, over the age of 35
- Need volume in the mid to lower facial area (nasolabial area)
- Are looking for a filler that lasts longer
- Want safe, painless, and non-evasive procedure for youthful appearance
