What is Juvéderm Vollure?
Juvéderm Vollure is an FDA-approved dermal filler that smooths out moderate-to-severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose.* It can also be used to treat scars and add volume to the face. The Juvéderm family of injectables utilizes hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally-occurring substance in the body to temporarily plump up hollow or thin areas in the face and mouth.* Vollure also contains lidocaine, which is a numbing agent that provides immense comfort. If your face, specifically your cheeks, are lacking fullness, this injectable may be a perfect treatment for you.
How does Juvéderm Vollure work?
Vollure uses HA to add volume and moisture to the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid, resulting in less cushion under the skin. Vollure restores hyaluronic acid to the face and adds the volume needed to smooth out wrinkles and folds.* If you are dealing with thin lips, this filler can also be injected near your mouth to plump up that area of your face.
What can I expect during the treatments?
Before we schedule the procedure, your initial consultation will determine whether Vollure is right for you. We may rely on multiple fillers in order to provide you with the best results. During your appointment, the first injection you will receive will administer lidocaine in order to numb and decrease the sensitivity of your skin. After the targeted areas are numbed, small amounts of filler will be injected into your face and/or lips until the correct amount of volume is restored. We will then massage the treated area to evenly distribute the filler underneath your skin. The entire process will take 15-30 minutes and the downtime is minimal.
What can I expect from the results?
Your results will be determined by the strength of your metabolism and the location of your face that the product is injected into. If your metabolism is fast, then the filler may not last as long as the average amount of time (over half a year).* Location is a huge component, as fillers placed in the lips will not last as long as fillers injected into the cheeks, where there is less muscle movement. Typically, patients return after a couple of months to get touch-up treatments. This can prolong your final results for half a year or so.*
