JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is an advanced dermal filler that is FDA-approved to decrease the appearance of moderate to deep facial wrinkles and creases for individuals who are over the age of 21. Due to its unique balance of gel firmness and low cohesivity, this product is particularly beneficial for smoothing lines that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds), creating an exceptionally natural-looking result that lasts up to 18 months for most individuals. By administering JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC alone or in combination with other injectable treatments, board-certified plastic surgeon Christopher P. Godek, MD can help you achieve a rejuvenated facial aesthetic without the need for frequent touch-up visits.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Treatment
Like other products in the JUVÉDERM® family, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is composed of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid (HA), so no allergy testing is necessary before treatment. During the procedure, the specially formulated gel is carefully injected into targeted wrinkles and creases via an ultra-thin needle. Once administered, the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC solution creates an immediate volumizing effect that smooths the surface of the skin for a more youthful, natural-appearing aesthetic. As an added benefit, there is typically minimal to no discomfort experienced throughout treatment due to a local anesthetic known as lidocaine found in the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC gel. Based on each individual’s particular needs and goals, the entire procedure can generally be performed in as little as 30 minutes, making it a popular option during one’s lunch break.
Recovery from JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
Following treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, there may be some degree of redness, swelling, and/or bruising in the targeted area(s), but these temporary symptoms should fade shortly. Pain or discomfort is uncommon, and the majority of patients are able to return to their regular daily routines right away. The results of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC are apparent immediately, and they generally last up to 18 months for most men and women. Once the effects begin to diminish, follow-up treatments can be used to maintain an ideal outcome.
