As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begins to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.
Soft-tissue fillers like Juvederm Vollure can help fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. Juvederm Vollure uses what is called Vycross Technology, allowing the injector to contour the injected area and provide longer lasting results.
What is Juvéderm Vollure?
Juvederm Vollure is a smooth injectable gel made from modified hyaluronic acid. It is specifically designed to treat the nasolabial folds and parenthesis around the mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar naturally found in the human body, where it helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume.
What does Juvéderm Vollure treat?
Juvederm Vollure smooths moderate to severe lines and wrinkles associated with the normal aging process specifically around the mouth and nose. When injected deep into the facial tissue, it smooths wrinkles and folds by temporarily adding volume to the parentheses or nasolabial folds.
Does Juvéderm Vollure hurt?
Juvederm Vollure contains pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injections. You may also ask your provider about a topical numbing cream or ice to help further minimize discomfort.
What are the possible side effects of Juvéderm Vollure?
The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain, tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps and bruising. As with all skin injection procedures there is a risk of infection. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting. Your provider will review your full medical history with you to determine any potential contraindications to the recommended treatment.
How long does Juvéderm Vollure last?
Juvederm Vollure will give you a subtle but remarkable result with lasting effect, up to 18 months.
