JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is a state-of-the-art injectable designed to minimize the appearance of moderate to severe smile lines and wrinkles on the face. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients over 21, this dermal filler is especially beneficial for reducing lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the nose—a common aesthetic concern known as nasolabial folds. Best of all, the effects of treatment have proved to last up to 18 months for the majority of women and men in clinical studies. By using JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC alone or in combination with other injectable products, our board-certified plastic surgeon can help you achieve a rejuvenated facial aesthetic with natural-looking results and no need for frequent retreatment.
What Can JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Do for Me?
Composed of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid (HA), the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC solution is formulated with a unique blend of low cohesivity and gel firmness, enabling it to create a volumizing effect that instantaneously smooths wrinkles and folds on the surface of the skin. With ideal treatment, the results have proved to endure for up to a year and a half in most individuals, making JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC the longest-lasting filler option available for the reduction of nasolabial folds.
The JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Procedure
The HA composition of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC eliminates the need for allergy testing prior to injection. During treatment, the filler solution will be carefully directed into targeted facial wrinkles and creases via a Dermasculpt® Microcannula—an ultra-fine, hollow instrument that Dr. Stafford R. Broumand uses to perform all injectables at 740 Park Plastic Surgery. Patients rarely experience any discomfort throughout treatment due to a combination of our doctor’s precise approach and a local anesthetic (lidocaine) contained within the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC gel. Depending on how many injections are needed to achieve an ideal outcome, the entire procedure can often be completed in approximately half an hour, making JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC an excellent treatment to receive during one’s lunch break.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Recovery
Directly after the procedure, some degree of temporary bruising and/or swelling is possible, but these symptoms are usually limited as a result of our plastic surgeon’s careful injection technique. Most men and women are able to resume everyday activities right away, but any heavy lifting, physical sports, and intense exercise will need to be avoided for at least 24 hours. The rejuvenative effects of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC are typically noticeable immediately and have shown to endure for up to 18 months in clinical trials. Once the results begin to diminish, touch-up injections can be received to help prolong an optimal outcome.
