Traditionally, a weak jawline has required surgical implants in order to enhance its contours and projection. Now, injectable industry leader Juvéderm has developed Volux, a new dermal filler designed to boost the jawline and reduce the appearance of jowls. Prysi Cosmetic Surgery is excited to offer this newest injectable option for non-surgical jawline contouring.
What is Juvéderm Volux XC?
Volux is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler in the Juvéderm family of fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar found in the skin that keeps it hydrated and supple. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to boost volume and replace lose collagen – they can also be used to enhance the natural features and augment the face’s contours. Volux’s specially developed formula is the thickest available, meaning it can provide natural-feeling definition deep in the skin of the jawline. It even includes Juvéderm’s industry leading Vycross cross-linking technology to ensure it lasts for the long term.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm Volux XC?
A weak jawline can be a difficult cosmetic concern to treat. If you’re bothered by a noticeable imbalance in your face from certain angles, or if you’re bothered by a weak chin, it’s likely that enhancing the jawline can help restore better balance to your features.
Patients who can benefit most from Volux are those looking for a way to enhance and define the jawline without surgery. Previously, Juvéderm Voluma was the thickest formulation available for contouring – now, you can achieve better results with an injectable designed specifically for this goal. An additional benefit of Volux is that it can help reduce the appearance of jowls, a common sign of aging that also impacts the jawline area.
Since Volux and many other Juvéderm injectables contain lidocaine (denoted by “XC”), it’s important to discuss any previous reactions to lidocaine. Dr. Prysi and our team can help you determine the best options for your cosmetic goals and desired look.
How is Juvéderm Volux XC Treatment Performed?
Volux can be administered right at our Naples office in as little as 30 minutes. Volux contains lidocaine, a common numbing agent that can allow for a more comfortable treatment process. However, our team can supply a topical numbing cream if needed. Once the area is cleaned and prepared, a very fine needle is used to place the product deep in the skin. Our experienced injectors will carefully craft your results for the most flattering look for your features. You’ll see instant improvement with Volux and can ensure you’ve achieved your cosmetic goals before you leave.
Results and Recovery
It’s normal to experience some minor swelling and sensitivity after your injection treatment but it typically subsides quickly. You can return to your normal schedule directly afterward, but to get best results you should avoid exercise and hot environments like saunas or hot tubs – sweating and elevating your heart rate can exacerbate swelling and irritation. Make sure to allow 1-2 weeks for your final results to settle in.
Volux is specially designed to last for 1-2 years, at which point you can return to our team for a touch-up appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions about Juvéderm Volux
How long does Volux filler last?
This can depend on a variety of factors like your metabolism and the amount of product placed. Volux is designed to last 1-2 years in the jawline.
What's the difference between Volux and Voluma?
Voluma is a thicker Juvéderm gel that is used to enhance and fill in the cheeks whereas Volux is used to contour and augment the jawline. Both injectables can be used together to further enhance and contour the face.
What are the side effects of Volux?
It’s common to have some minor swelling and sensitivity after dermal filler treatments. Side effects such as these typically subside within 24 hours.
Can Juvederm Volux be dissolved?
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Volux can be dissolved using a special enzyme injection. This can be a long and imprecise process, so it’s important to carefully consider your options when opting for dermal filler treatment.
Can you use Juvederm Volux in cheeks?
Although it’s possible to use Volux in the cheeks, it’s specifically formulated to enhance the jawline with a very thick, sturdy formula. A slightly softer gel like Voluma may be better suited for the cheeks.
