FDA-approved JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is an advanced, hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can effectively reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, including nasolabial folds. The latest innovation from the JUVÉDERM® product line, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is designed to temporarily add natural-looking volume and support to areas of the face that have been affected by aging. The smooth, youthful-looking results achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC can last up to 18 months in the majority of patients.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is formulated with VYCROSS® technology, a patented molecular formula that uses hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance – to produce a long-lasting gel that flows smoothly into the treatment area. This technology allows JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC to remain cohesive after injection, achieve the desired aesthetic outcome, and retain volumizing moisture. The specialized formula also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that can minimize potential discomfort at the injection site.
Why Choose JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is the longest-lasting dermal filler specifically designed to address the nasolabial folds, producing results that can last up to 18 months. The nasolabial folds, also known as the “parenthesis” wrinkles, typically extend from the sides of the nose to the outside corners of the mouth, and are one of the most common areas treated with dermal fillers. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC has emerged as a highly effective treatment solution for patients concerned with deepening of these facial creases and other wrinkles as they age. The JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC formula delivers firm volume that adequately fills lines and creases, moving flexibly with facial expressions for a natural-looking result.
Treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
Prior to your treatment session, one of our facial plastic surgeons, J. David Kriet, MD or Clinton Humphrey, MD, will discuss your cosmetic goals with you and determine whether JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is the best dermal filler to achieve the results you desire. When it is time to start treatment, your surgeon will begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the targeted area in order to numb the skin while the injections are performed. The lidocaine in the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC formula should also help minimize any discomfort you may feel as the product is injected beneath the skin. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC will subsequently be applied in small amounts to the treatment area until the desired degree of volume and/or wrinkle correction is achieved. Some patients report swelling or redness at the injection site immediately following their treatment session, but these symptoms should resolve quickly as the tissues adjust. Because injections are always performed by our facial plastic surgeons, rather than an esthetician, nurse, or physician assistant, patients can feel comfortable knowing that their treatment is administered by highly qualified injectors who have years of surgical experience and expertise with a variety of injectable products.
Results of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
Results of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC can be apparent immediately after treatment. Patients who have received the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC treatment are typically very happy with the smooth, subtle volume the product provides to diminish the appearance of nasolabial folds and other wrinkles. In clinical studies, the natural-looking results of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC treatment were shown to last up to 18 months in most patients, and many reported high rates of satisfaction in the quality of their results. When volume starts to diminish, many patients opt to undergo touch-up treatments to maintain the results achieved with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC.
