Nothing gives away our age more than our face. Whether it is sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, or loss of facial volume, all of these issues are natural and show signs of aging more than on other parts of the body. Two revolutionary products on the market to treat these common signs of aging are Juvederm® Vollure and Juvederm® Voluma.
Juvederm® Vollure is a dermal filler that is the first and only to be approved by the FDA for treating deep wrinkles and facial folds. It is an injectable, which is designed specifically to treat areas around the corners of the mouth as well as around the nose. It is softer than other similar dermal fillers, which contributes to its long-lasting results.
Vollure Treatment Areas
Vollure is typically used to treat:
- Marionette lines (the lines that develop from the corners of the mouth to the jaw)
- Nasolabial folds (the wrinkles that form between the corners of the mouth to the nose)
- Mild to moderate facial wrinkles and lines
Vollure Procedure and Results
Juvederm® Vollure is injected right below the skin with a tiny needle. The filler contains lidocaine, which helps to reduce any mild pain or discomfort during the procedure, so it is common for the doctor to pause between injections to ensure the lidocaine is working. It is also typical for the specialist to lightly massage the treatment areas to smooth and shape the filler.
Vollure requires no downtime, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure. Results have been shown to last up to 18 months following the injection, making it one of the longest-lasting fillers on the market.
