Juvéderm Vollure XC
Vollure XC is Juvéderm’s newest addition to their line of FDA approved dermal fillers. Vollure XC uses hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring chemical in the body, to target moderate to severe wrinkles and folds such as the nasolabial folds. Vollure lasts for up to 18 months, about 50% longer than many other dermal fillers currently on the market.
Vollure XC uses the same patented Vycross® technology as Voluma XC (Juvéderm’s dermal filler for cheek rejuvenation) and Volbella XC (Juvéderm’s dermal filler for lip augmentation). Vycross technology blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acids (HA) allowing for easier, more malleable injection. The firmness and low cohesivity of the gel adds subtle volume and smoother correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, effectively plumping deflated skin.
How is Vollure different from Voluma?
Although both Vollure XC and Voluma XC both use Vycross technology, Vollure XC is a bit lighter in weight than Voluma XC at 17.5 mg/ml of HA. Voluma XC is heavier at 20 mg/ml of HA and not as malleable since volume replacement in the cheek is not subject to all of the everyday movements of the mouth area. The nasolabial folds targeted by Vollure XC, often called the parenthesis lines or marionette lines, move with your facial expressions and speech. Vollure XC is more flexible and elastic in nature in order to allow easy movement of the mouth area. Both Vollure XC and Voluma XC create soft, natural-looking results especially when used simultaneously in the cheeks and nasolabial folds to create rejuvenated, youthful appearance lasting over a year.
How is the Procedure Performed?
After examining your skin, one of our doctors will clean your face with an antiseptic solution and apply a topical numbing agent. After allowing the topical anaesthetic to take effect, they will inject Vollure XC into the marked treatment areas using a very fine needle to help minimize discomfort. This also helps to decrease the risk of bruising and swelling. After the injection, they may massage the treatment sites to ensure the product is evenly distributed to provide you with the most natural results. Ice packs will then be applied to your face to reduce inflammation. Any visible effects such as swelling, bruising or discoloration can be concealed with makeup. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally hydrating substance found in the human body, Vollure XC synthesizes, or settles, easily. Because of the Vycross technology, recovery time will be swifter than most fillers currently on the market, allowing patients to return to their daily activities quickly after treatment.
