Juvederm Vollure Injectable
What is Vollure?
Juvederm Vollure is a dermal filler that has proven to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic formula is for parentheses lines, or the lines around the nose and mouth. Using Vycross technology, Juvederm Vollure stays intact below the skin where it can be molded to fill-in creases.
Treatment will begin with a mapping of the injection sites to ensure all target area receive the right amount of injections. A topical numbing cream can be applied to maximize your comfort during the treatment process. A thin needle is then used to place the formula beneath the skin where it is them carefully massaged into place. The process is usually complete in about 30-45 minutes.
Who is a Candidate?
Facial lines and wrinkles are one of the first signs of aging that eventually affects everyone. Those who are 21 and over can benefit from Vollure to smooth the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, especially in the lower face. Vollure is effective at improving creases, but more severe folds and sagging might be better treated with a surgical procedure like a facelift. Vollure can also benefit those who have already had a facelift to touch-up their rejuvenated appearance.
Results and Recovery
Patients can generally return to their daily life without the interruption of recovery. Mild swelling, bruising, and itching are the most common side effects of Vollure but should diminish over the course of the next few days. It is advised to avoid strenuous activity and direct sun exposure during this time. The results can be noticed immediately with reduced lines and wrinkles and an overall rejuvenated, youthful appearance. With optimal sessions, these results can last up to 18 months.
