JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is a dermal filler injected into areas of the face with moderate to severe facial wrinkles, including the “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® offers a variety of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers with a smooth, gel-like consistency, designed to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Each JUVÉDERM® filler contains precisely formulated concentrations of hyaluronic acid designed to produce lasting results in the target treatment area. JUVÉDERM® is a top brand trusted by many doctors and satisfied patients around the world.
Preparing For JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC injections can provide varying results, depending on the number of injections and the treatment area, which is why it’s important to speak to a medical professional about cosmetic goals and expectations before scheduling treatment. During the consultation, the doctor will explain the procedure and describe the risks associated with the JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically performed after the consultation.
Patients who decide to go ahead with treatment should avoid:
- Medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, and St. John’s wort
- Alcohol in the weeks leading up to treatment
All of these substances can increase the risk of bruising after treatment and should be avoided leading up to the procedure. Patients should let their doctor know of any allergies or sensitivities they may have prior to scheduling treatment.
How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC temporarily corrects wrinkles in the face to create a more youthful appearance for adults over the age of 21. The filler contains hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the human body which helps to stimulate the production of collagen and provide natural volume. As we age, the body’s production of collagen decreases. By injecting hyaluronic acid-based fillers, treatment can help combat the visible signs of aging.
What to Expect During The Procedure
First, the nurse will mark the treatment area with a pen. Next, the doctor will inject JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC into the facial wrinkles and folds, and lightly massage the area to promote even distribution and minimize the risk of swelling. The entire procedure may take between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the number of injections and the treatment area.
The filler contains pain-reducing lidocaine to help reduce any pain or discomfort during the injections.
Potential Risks And Side Effects
After treatment, patients may experience the following temporary side effects:
- Lumps or bumps
- Minor pain
Most side effects are resolved within two to four weeks. Serious and rare side effects following JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC injections are typically caused by inexperienced doctors who unintentionally inject the filler into a blood vessel. Doing so could lead to permanent scarring, vision abnormalities, blindness, or stroke.
When searching for a JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC provider, it’s important to check their background to ensure they are trained, certified, and licensed to perform the procedure.
The Recovery Process
After the procedure, patients may resume most normal activities, but should avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, wearing makeup, and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours after the injections.
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC results are typically visible immediately after the procedure, or once the swelling has resolved, and may last up to one year.
