Are you starting to notice folds and wrinkles forming on your face, particularly around your mouth and nose? If so, it might be time for you to consider Juvederm Vollure™, the latest dermal filler from Allergan, the makers of Botox. Designed to treat and reduce nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles, this FDA-approved injectable has been added to the anti-aging products available at Levy Dermatology.
WHAT IS VOLLURE?
Juvederm Vollure™ is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler to be approved by the FDA for treating deep-set facial wrinkles and folds. It is softer than many other dermal fillers, providing long-lasting results with minimal bruising and swelling.
This revolutionary cosmetic filler is used to:
- Treat marionette lines, the lines that form between the corners of the mouth and the jawline
- Add volume to nasolabial folds, the wrinkles that develop between the corners of the mouth and the nose
- Fill in mild to moderate wrinkles and lines
AM I A CANDIDATE?
Juvederm Vollure™ is a great option if you have moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on your face, particularly around your nose and mouth. You are also a good candidate if you are looking to refresh the lower portion of your face with minimal side effects and recovery.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR VOLLURE?
Juvederm Vollure™ is injected into the face, in the areas around the nose and mouth. Before the procedure, the injection specialist will clean the area where the filler will be inserted. Then, they will use a fine-gauge needle to insert the Juvederm Vollure™ right below your skin. During the first session, it is common for the specialist to pause in-between injections to ensure the lidocaine in the product has a chance to work before moving on. They will smooth and shape the filler in the injection spot by lightly massaging it with their fingers.
The most common side effects of Juvederm Vollure™ are injection site responses such as swelling, tenderness, redness, itching, discoloration, and pain. A majority of these side effects resolved within one to two weeks of the procedure.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE?
To ensure the treatment is able to evenly distribute across the face, it is advised that you avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours following treatment. In order to reduce swelling and bruising, it is recommended to stay out of the sun and avoid drinking alcohol immediately before and after treatment.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS FROM VOLLURE™ LAST?
Due to its innovative ingredients, Juvederm Vollure™ has shown to provide results for up to 18 months following the injection- an entire year longer than other injectables on the market.
