Turning back the clock with Juvéderm Vollure XC treatment in Franklin, TN
No matter how young you feel on the inside, the years take a visible toll on skin. Depending on your lifestyle, sun exposure, and genetics, wrinkles may begin developing rather early in life. As a result, many of us are left looking older than we feel, or even older than we are. Don’t worry, your cosmetic dermatologist in Franklin, TN has a wide range of solutions, including Juvéderm Vollure XC dermal filler.
What is Juvéderm Vollure XC?
Meet the newest member of the wonderful Juvéderm family! In 2017, Vollure XC joined Voluma XC, Volbella XC, and the original Juvéderm XC in this industry-leading collection of FDA approved dermal fillers. These products are produced by Allergan, one of the most trusted names in cosmetic injectables.
Vollure is a HA (hyaluronic acid) filler, which was designed for use in the lower face. It is formulated with Vycross technology, a sophisticated molecular crosslinking technique that stabilizes the HA chain. The result is an ultra-smooth gel with a high concentration of HA, which is resilient and long-lasting when injected.
HA is used as the base for Vollure and other Juvéderm fillers for several reasons. It is a naturally occurring type of sugar, found in many living organisms, including humans. HA can bond with and retain moisture, making it an important component in skin hydration, joint lubrication, and other essential functions within the body. This is also one of the skin components that diminishes with age. As our bodies slow down production of collagen and elastin, they also produce less HA, which is one of the reasons that aging skin tends to be dry and thin.
Dermal fillers replace lost volume, restoring more natural and youthful contours of the face. However, there is no single formula that is ideal for every area. When a small amount of volume is added in a delicate area, the injection is normally more superficial, whereas areas with significant volume loss require deep injections.
Juvéderm Vollure injections are a great way to restore volume, enhance contours, and correct asymmetry in the lower portion of the face. How does it differ from other Juvéderm formulas? Voluma is a thick, substantial formula that holds its shape well, making it ideas for deep injections, such as in the cheeks. By contrast, Volbella is thinner and more malleable, making it ideal for subtle enhancements and superficial injections, such as in the lips. What about the chin area? Neither formula provided an ideal answer to that question, which is why Allergan added Vollure to the Juvéderm collection.
This unique formula is ideal for:
- Restoring the shape and fullness of the lower face
- Filling in moderate to severe lines and wrinkles
- Correcting or improving smile lines (nasolabial folds), which are deep folds extending from the corners of the mouth to the nasal area
- Correcting or improving marionette lines, which are deep fold extending from the mouth area to the chin
- Treatment of other areas where a medium-viscosity dermal filler is needed
Is Juvéderm Vollure XC dermal filler the right choice for you?
Like other products in the Juvéderm family, Vollure is formulated with a very small amount of lidocaine, a localized numbing agent. This makes injections especially comfortable, because the affected tissue is immediately numbed. However, a small number of people are allergic to lidocaine, or to specific proteins found in cosmetic injectables. Therefore, we will discuss allergies and review your medical history before recommending a treatment plan.
For the majority of adults, Juvéderm Vollure XC treatment is a safe and effective solution for facial aging, with no downtime and minimal side effects. The best candidates are adult men or women who want to correct asymmetry, inadequate volume, or age-related volume loss in the lower part of the face.
What should you expect during and after Juvéderm Vollure XC injections?
First, you will have a consultation with an experienced clinician, who will conduct a facial analysis, and discuss treatment options. If Juvéderm Vollure is determined to be a good option, your clinician will explain the process and answer your questions.
The procedure itself is remarkably gentle, and usually takes around 30 minutes. Small quantities of Vollure are delivered in carefully selected locations, adding volume exactly where it is needed the most. Our injectors are well trained in gentle techniques and precision placement, which makes treatments more comfortable. Additionally, Juvéderm Vollure XC contains a small percentage of lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic. It helps reduce pain or discomfort during treatment because the filler itself has numbing properties.
Dermal fillers do not require any downtime, so you will be able to return to work or other normal daily activities immediately. The area around the injection site may develop mild bruising, swelling, or redness, and it may feel sore or tender to the touch. These effects should fade within a few days.
Juvéderm Vollure XC gives instant volumization. However, swelling may initially skew the results. As it subsides (usually a few days to a few weeks), your new, beautifully youthful facial contours will develop. The results can last for up to 18 months, and they can easily be extended with additional treatments in the future.
