Juvéderm® Vollure™ XC
Juvederm® VOLLURE™ XC is the latest and newest addition to the Juvéderm® family of facial fillers. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC softens moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles to create a smoother appearance. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is an FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler which adds subtle volume to specific facial areas affected by aging. The injectable gel is intended for use in patients who have moderate to severe wrinkles and nasolabial folds. A key US clinical trial saw subjects reporting improvements for up to 18 months post-injection – the longest-lasting treatment ever recorded for a dermal filler in nasolabial folds. There was also high subject satisfaction rate at both 6 and 18 months post-treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions about Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC
What is Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC?
JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur including the “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is designed to temporarily correct facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face for adults over the age of 21.
How long does Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC last?
The clinical study demonstrated JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC lasts up to 18 months, with optimal treatment. The results show up right away and is then slowly broken down by the body to be absorbed. To make the corrections last longer, additional touch-up injections will be needed. These follow-up injections will typically use less of the material.
What are the potential side effects of Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC?
The most common side effects included firmness, swelling, tenderness to touch, lumps/bumps, redness, pain, bruising, itching, and discoloration at the injection site. These side effects were usually mild or moderate in nature (causing little to some discomfort and impact on daily activities) and lasted 14 days or less.
Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC consultation
During the consultation for a JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC treatment, patients will be asked questions regarding their health. Existing health conditions, family medical history, and prescription medication intake will be brought up.
Once the patient is cleared to proceed, the steps involved in the treatment will be explained. Details such as the recovery period and possible side effects will also be discussed.
How does Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC work?
Over time, due to a variety of environmental and genetic factors, wrinkles develop on your face, and nasolabial folds may become more visible. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC is designed to temporarily add volume to the facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.
How much does Juvéderm® VOLLURE™ XC cost?
The cost for a JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC treatment is determined by taking multiple factors into consideration. This includes the extent of the cosmetic issue that needs to be corrected and the number of sessions involved. To get the full price of the treatment, patients are encouraged to schedule an appointment and ask for an estimate during the initial consultation.
