Juvéderm® Vollure XC – Naples & Fort Myers, Florida
One integral part of the aging process is that your body’s ability to rejuvenate its important cells and proteins slows down. When it comes to your skin, this means that your body doesn’t effectively restore its supportive matrix of collagen and elastin as time goes on. This can contribute to a loss of volume, creating lines and folds in the skin. One easy and effective way to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and folds is through injectable treatments. At Prysi Cosmetic Surgery, we love helping patients feel their best without the risks and downtime of surgical procedures, so we offer the best in dermal filler options from the Juvéderm family.
What is Juvéderm Vollure XC?
Juvéderm® Vollure XC is an injectable treatment designed to fill in wrinkles and lines in the midface, commonly known as parentheses lines or marionette lines. Vollure is made with a synthetic form of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule naturally found in your skin and connective tissues. Hyaluronic acid in your body is responsible for retaining moisture and keeping your skin supple. When Vollure is injected underneath the surface of your skin, it can replace lost volume where your collagen and elastin matrix has become weakened and thinned because of aging.
Juvéderm Vollure XC uses Juvéderm’s VYCROSS® technology, which is a unique cross-linking system to help the product molecules remain strong and resistant to breakdown over time in a mobile area like the mouth. Additionally, this method allows it to retain its shape and suppleness so you get natural-looking results with the range of movement that lets you express yourself as much as ever.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm Vollure XC?
Patients who are looking for temporary treatment of lines and folds without a surgical procedure can find great results with Vollure. It’s important to discuss your goals with our expert injectors and determine whether Vollure can produce your intended results or if a surgical procedure is a better option. You should also discuss any allergies or history of reactions to things like lidocaine so we can make sure Vollure will be a safe treatment option for you. It’s important to always receive cosmetic injections from a reputable and experienced injector under the supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon. This can help ensure your results are natural-looking, artistic, and risk averse.
How is Juvéderm Vollure XC Treatment Performed?
Injectable treatments require a quick and easy injection session performed right in our Naples office. Most patients can tolerate the injection process, but we can provide a topical numbing cream as needed, since everyone’s tolerance is different. Vollure contains lidocaine for increased comfort during the injection process, which is a common anesthetic used by dentists and ophthalmologists. After you’re comfortable and relaxed, a very fine needle is used to place the product under the surface of the skin where folds and lines are present. This is usually done using several specific injections to ensure your results are carefully crafted and appear natural. After your results are achieved, you’ll discuss a few aftercare instructions and will be able to return home. In total, this process can take as little as fifteen minutes.
Results and Recovery
After treatment with Vollure, you can expect some minor redness and swelling at the injection sites. However, this usually subsides quickly and can be covered up with makeup. There’s no downtime required with injectable treatments, so you can return to your regular activities immediately. Most patients notice that their results last for up to 18 months, although this can be unique to each patient. After your results begin to fade, you can opt for retreatment or a touch-up as needed. During a consultation with our expert injectors, we can recommend the best at-home skincare and professional treatments to boost and prolong your results.
