Loss of collagen and skin elasticity is a natural product of aging. The eventual product of this process is wrinkles, lip thinning, facial hollows, laugh and smile lines that become noticeably visible. Fortunately, surgery isn’t the only option anymore.
As the cosmetic industry continues to innovate, dermal fillers become more and more effective at reducing signs of aging without downtime. Injectables and dermal fillers can produce stunning results for facial rejuvenation and are a friendlier alternative to plastic surgeries. One such filler is Vollure™ from the Juvéderm® collection.
What is Juvéderm Vollure?
Vollure is designed specifically to treat wrinkles and facial lines. It is a dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin and helps to keep the skin moisturized, hydrated and plump while also replacing lost volume.
Benefits of Juvéderm Vollure
There are a variety of benefits of Vollure. These include:
• Results lasting up to 18 months
• Gentle on the skin during and after treatment
• Instant results
• Little downtime
• Treatment is reversible and biodegradable
• Works with all skin types
• Produces a natural look
How does Juvéderm Vollure Work?
Collagen, the connective tissue responsible for supporting the skin, decreases with age, making the skin saggy and causing wrinkles to form on the face. Hyaluronic acid in the form of Vollure is a thick gel that can serve the same supportive purpose as collagen. When injected under the skin, it fills in wrinkles and binds to hydration in the body. The result is smoother skin and even an improvement in your skin’s quality and youthfulness.
What results can I expect from Juvéderm Vollure?
You can see your results emerge in the mirror during your procedure. However, swelling can impact your results for 1-2 weeks after injection. After two weeks, you’ll see your final results and can return for a touch-up if needed. Vollure remains in your body for 12-18 months before a follow-up appointment.
What are The Side Effects of Juvéderm Vollure?
The side effects of Vollure are mild to moderate and don’t last more than two weeks. Immediately after the treatment, you may experience tenderness, redness, itchiness, or swelling. For best results, you should avoid strenuous exercises and hot environments like showers or saunas since these can exacerbate swelling. Make sure to also avoid blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen since they can increase bruising.
