Whether they are due to sun damage or simply the natural process of aging, deep-set wrinkles and folds around your mouth and nose can be a source of discomfort. As we age, the natural collagen and firmness in the skin decreases, making the appearance of folds and wrinkles increase. Juvederm Vollure is one of the newest treatment options to be approved by the FDA to reduce the appearance of deep-set wrinkles and folds while giving the skin a firmer and more youthful look.
Juvederm Vollure belongs to the Juvederm family, and is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler to be approved by the FDA to treat facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin which contributes to overall plumpness and firmness. The revolutionary formula in Vollure adheres to the skin in the targeted area and brings excess water to it. This extra moisture and water cushions the skin and smooths out wrinkles and folds.
The filler is injected right below the skin with a tiny needle, and then lightly massages the area to ensure even distribution and proper shape. Juvederm Vollure is softer than many other dermal fillers on the market, which allows for an easier procedure and guarantees you will have natural movement in the treatment area.
Due to its special formula, Vollure is able to provide long-lasting results with minimal bruising and side effects. There is no downtime associated with the procedure and most side effects typically go away within a few days. Vollure has been shown to provide results for up to 18 months following the initial injection, which is a whole year more than similar products.
