Studio City JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC
If you look in the mirror and see an increase of lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth, Juvéderm Vollure XC is the solution you’ve been waiting for. This FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler is a long-lasting anti-aging injectable that gives you back your youthful look. It is perfect for fighting moderate to severe wrinkles, specifically marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
How Does It Work?
Juvéderm Vollure XC is designed by Allergan to treat facial folds and wrinkles in your face. The filler uses Vycross technology, which involves using different weights of hyaluronic acid to create better cross-linked chains. The hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced substance in the body that holds moisture in the skin.
As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid based fillers put this beneficial substance back in the body in order to fill in facial wrinkles and smoothen the skin. Another benefit of hyaluronic acid is that it holds moisture in the skin without too much amount of water. Too much water can actually cause the skin to break down.
Is It Safe?
Because the main active ingredient in Juvéderm Vollure XC is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the human body, it is safe for use. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the dermal filler after passing specific testing. The extensive approval process should give you piece of mind that Juvéderm Vollure XC is a safe cosmetic treatment.
What Does It Treat?
Juvéderm Vollure XC has been proven useful for the treatment of marionette lines. These are vertical lines that show up between your mouth and chin. Injecting the dermal filler adds volume to the vertical wrinkles from your nose to your mouth, known as nasolabial folds. It is effective in treating mild to severe facial lines and even moderate to severe wrinkles. Juvéderm is also effective at reviving the youthful look of the lower part of your face.
The first step in the treatment is to clean the area and prepare it for the injection. A fine gauge needle is used to insert the filler under the skin. Juvéderm Vollure XC does contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, to keep any discomfort at bay. After injection, we will wait a few seconds for the lidocaine to take effect. The Juvéderm will be injected into the areas that need treatment. Our specialist will use their fingers to lightly massage the filler in order to shape it and achieve the desired results.
A treatment session usually takes about 15 minutes. Several sessions may be required in order to achieve the desired results. This depends on the individual, the area being treated and the reaction of the body to the dermal filler. The filler is absorbed by your body over time. When this occurs, additional treatments will be needed to improve the state of your skin.
More About Juvéderm Vollure XC
Most patients can go back to their daily activities after a treatment session. During the procedure, there will be minimal discomfort, thanks to the lidocaine. However, we may offer a topical anesthetic and also provide ice to numb the area after the procedure.
Some minimal side effects may occur after treatment. These include redness at the injection spot, skin firmness and mild swelling. Other possible effects includes itching, redness and minor bruising. Majority of patients say these side effects disappear after a week.
Patients are advised to avoid exercise, stay out of the sun and refrain from drinking alcohol for 24 hours after treatment, in order to reduce the chance of increased swelling and bruising. If you are on blood thinners, ibuprofen, aspirin or other medicines that can increase bleeding, you’ll need to share this information with us.
Juvéderm Vollure XC is an adaptable formula that allows us to add a subtle and natural face volume. It can also be adjusted to combat more moderate and severe facial wrinkles and lines. The hyaluronic component of the filler will create a softer and smoother appearance immediately. This means your skin will glow again right after treatment.
This is the longest-lasting dermal filler on the market used to treat nasolabial folds and other facial lines. Clinical tests showed that results can last up to 18 months, depending on the individual. To keep your results even longer, follow-up and maintenance sessions are highly recommended. Younger looking skin is definitely worth the investment.
