Since we’ve been running a special on various Juvéderm® fillers at Saltz Plastic Surgery/Spa Vitoria, we’ve been focusing on them in our blog. Last month, we covered the entire Juvéderm® line, which has continued to expand to treat specific areas. And then our second blog specifically addressed the two Juvéderm® fillers for the lips.
This month, we’ll get into Vollure®, which is the newest member of the Juvéderm® line.
What is Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
Juvéderm Vollure® XC was added to the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers in the U.S. in April 2017. It was developed as an extension of the original Juvéderm product, Juvéderm® XC. The original Juvéderm® was one of the first hyaluronic acid fillers and has been, along with Restylane, the world’s most popular injectables after Botox. The first Juvéderm® filler was approved by the FDA in 2006.
Where is Juvéderm Vollure® XC used?
Vollure® is designed for the correction of moderate to deep creases and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds running from the nose down to the corners of the mouth, parentheses lines framing the mouth, and marionette lines dropping downward from the corners of the mouth.
How is Vollure® different from the other fillers in the Juvéderm® line?
Each Juvéderm® filler is intended for a different area of the face. Juvéderm Vollure® XC is specifically intended to treat moderate to deep lines and creases around the nose and mouth. These demand more volume than, say, lip lines. Juvéderm Vollure® XC uses Vycross crosslinking, which is also used in Volbella® and Voluma®. This technology minimizes any swelling when Vollure® is injected.
How long will my results last with Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
Juvéderm Vollure® XC is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler on the market, providing volume for 18 months. That is six months longer than any other hyaluronic acid filler.
Are there side effects with Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
The potential side effects are the same as with other hyaluronic acid fillers. Allergic reactions are rare because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. The typical side effects are redness, slight swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection sites. This resolves quickly. There can also be some firmness and even lumps, but this rarely lasts beyond 7-10 days.
