As we get older, our facial skin begins to lose its elasticity and wrinkles start to form. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is designed to reduce the signs of aging by addressing the lines that begin at each side of the nose and run down to the corners of the mouth, usually referred to as laugh lines, nasolabial folds, or parentheses lines. It can also treat horizontal chin lines and marionette lines, which are the wrinkles that begin at the corners of the mouth and run down the chin. This injectable hyaluronic gel filler contains a small amount of lidocaine (a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort) and can provide youthful skin. After receiving treatment for moderate to severe midface lines, patients have subtle increases in volume and smoother wrinkles, lines, and folds.
People who are bothered by signs of aging, like moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on their face, may be candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC. Candidates should schedule a consultation with Dr. Messa prior to their treatment to examine their areas of concern and review their medical history. Recommended treatments to achieve your desired results will be discussed during your consultation. It is important to note that candidates must be over 21 years of age to receive JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injections.
The treatment areas may be numbed with a topical anesthetic. The area is cleaned. The injectable is administered deep within the facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds while subtly adding volume to fill out the face. Treatment time takes between 15 minutes and one hour, depending on the amount being injected. Results commonly appear immediately.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is a non-surgical procedure that does not require downtime or a recovery period. Minor side effects may include temporary reactions such as swelling, tenderness, redness, and bruising. Symptoms typically diminish within one week. Avoid strenuous activities until your symptoms subside to ensure the best results.
After treatment, your skin should be smoother around the mouth and nose area. Wrinkles and folds typically appear fuller, providing youthful, natural-looking results. Injectables can last for up to 18 months, and additional treatments can be completed to prolong your outcome.
