What is Juvéderm Vollure XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the latest in a line of injectable gels that is manufactured using VYCROSS® technology to create a smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results for up to 18 months. Vollure delivers subtle, soft volume and assists in the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Vollure can also be used to enhance lips.
Allergan first debuted Vycross® technology in the U.S. in 2013 with the FDA approval of Juvederm Voluma XC for age-related volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC brings VYCROSS® technology to the most requested dermal filler treatment area – nasolabial folds. It is the latest addition to the Juvederm collection, the number one selling dermal filler products in the world to receive FDA approval.
Dr. Becker and Lili inject Vollure under the skin in the treatment area. The compound itself fills the region under the skin, leading to a “plumping” effect that pushes out wrinkles. A newer technique of using VOLLURE™ under the eyes in the tear trough region can significantly improve dark circles and eliminate the tired, sagging look by replacing lost volume. You can use Vollure to add volume to the following areas:
- Smile lines
- Tear troughs
What to expect during your treatment?
Avoid any blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil for a week prior to the procedure to decrease chances of bruising. The procedure itself is quite simple and short, lasting 15-30 minutes. More than one syringe may be necessary to achieve the results you desire. The majority of side effects from dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC are mild and short lasting. These may include swelling, bruising, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, pain, and redness. We are always happy to reduce the appearance of bruising by using our VBeam laser, should you have any.
