Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. David Goldberg, is committed to providing every one of our patients with customized, personalized care. Our facility proudly provides Vollure® injections, the latest product in the famed Juvéderm® line, designed specifically to treat moderate to deep wrinkles for as long as 18 months.
What is Vollure®?
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler that has been approved by the FDA specifically to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds or parentheses lines. Juvéderm Vollure™ XC provides noticeable results for up to 18 months.
How do I know if I can trust Vollure?
Vollure® is a product by Allergan, a pharmaceutical company. It is formulated using the well-respected, proprietary VYCROSS® technology, which blends various molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to provide a natural gel formula that is not only effective but provides long-lasting results. Vollure® is approved by the FDA and is used nationwide by thousands of practitioners.
How can Vollure® injections improve my appearance?
Vollure® is designed to treat moderate to deep wrinkles and is especially recommended to correct nasolabial folds. Nasolabial folds, sometimes called parentheses lines, extend from the corners of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth and can detract from an otherwise youthful facial appearance. Vollure® can restore a youthful smoothness to facial skin, adding needed volume to improve the facial appearance.
What should I expect before Vollure® treatment?
Please inform our staff of any medications you may be taking, as well as your medical history, allergies, and other pertinent medical information before treatment. It is also wise to minimize your exposure to extensive sun or heat as well as smoking and alcoholic beverages for several days before and after treatment. You may also have to plan to minimize strenuous exercise for a day following treatment.
How long does Vollure® last?
Vollure® provides natural-looking results that improve gradually for several weeks following treatment. Patients can notice improvement for up to 18 months.
Will Vollure® injections hurt?
We use a topical numbing agent to prepare the skin for Vollure® injections, so the treatment is virtually painless. Some patients may experience soreness and tenderness in the skin for a few hours following treatment. Minor tenderness and soreness are normal and subside naturally within a few hours.
Will there be swelling after Vollure®?
Some patients experience minor swelling and soreness following injections, which may be relieved by over the counter pain medication such as Tylenol. Any swelling or inflammation following treatment will subside naturally within a few hours.
Can Vollure® treatments be combined with additional treatments?
Yes, many patients seek to enhance their facial appearance using multiple dermal filler injections, which may include Vollure® as well as others. Vollure® may also be used to improve surgical procedures by providing additional volume to the midface region.
