Dermal fillers are generally regarded as the best solution for the correction of facial folds and creases. These fillers come in different forms. The Juvederm® line of products contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring compound that attracts and holds moisture in place. Most adults have very little of this important substance in the tissues of the skin and subcutaneous layers. Juvederm Vollure™ XC is a specific type of Juvederm® filler, and we highly recommend it for those who are concerned about more severe lines and wrinkles. Juvederm Vollure™ XC doesn’t plump the skin in an exaggerated fashion, but it does add volume where it is needed most. It’s a repeatable injection procedure, and the results often last for quite a while.
About Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers
We usually suggest the use of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers for the improvement of the facial skin surface. These fillers work rather quickly but gently and rarely cause uneven rippling or bumping.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm Vollure™ XC contain a special combination of different acid particle compositions. A mix of several different molecular weights of the particles is what sets Juvederm Vollure™ XC apart from the other forms of this filler. When mixed with a gel, it is easy to inject into the lower dermal layers, yet it remains highly malleable. The mix of different molecular weights also contributes to the gel’s longevity after being injected into the skin.
Consultation and Treatment
We won’t recommend a dermal filler until after we have consulted with the client. We want to examine the facial features closely and note the thickness of the skin, as well as the depth of any creases or folds. If we determine that an acid filler will adequately improve the appearance, we can plan a customized treatment session.
The treatment itself usually only takes minutes to complete. The solution is skillfully injected into the preselected areas during the procedure. Juvederm Vollure™ XC immediately begins to attract water and plump the affected area. The added volume increases further over the following days.
Our clients will notice a more taut, smoother overall skin surface. Juvederm Vollure™ XC may also help to smooth out smaller fine lines and wrinkles, but it is primarily intended as a smoothing filler for more severe creases such as the nasolabial folds.
What are the Advantages?
Some individuals bring us their concerns about surgical procedures to correct facial skin problems. If they aren’t ready for something this aggressive, we will suggest a dermal filler instead. Juvederm Vollure™ XC doesn’t contain any type of organic compounds that could cause rejection or allergic reactions, nor will it bleach the skin or exaggerate any hyperpigmentation. It is a reliable, non-surgical way to minimize the appearance of certain types of lines and wrinkles.
