Dermal fillers seem to be following the ways of grocery market shelves, where brands expand their lines to fill more and more space. Not exactly. While it is true Juvéderm® and Restylane® have both expanded dramatically, each new filler introduced in these two popular lines has a specific target.
The newest addition to the Juvéderm® family of fillers is Vollure®. Its focus? Those deep creases and folds around your mouth. We carry Vollure® at Austin Cosmetic Surgery.
What is Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
Juvéderm Vollure® XC was added to the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers in the U.S. in April 2017. It was developed as an extension of the original Juvéderm product, Juvéderm® XC. The original Juvéderm® was one of the first hyaluronic acid fillers and has been, along with Restylane, the world’s most popular injectables after Botox. The first Juvéderm® filler was approved by the FDA in 2006.
Where is Juvéderm Vollure® XC used?
Vollure® is designed for the correction of moderate to deep creases and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds running from the nose down to the corners of the mouth, parentheses lines framing the mouth, and marionette lines dropping downward from the corners of the mouth.
How is Vollure® different from the other fillers in the Juvéderm® line?
At first glance, all of these different fillers can seem confusing. Aren’t they all doing the same thing? Not really — each Juvéderm® filler is intended for a different area of the face. Juvéderm Vollure® XC is specifically intended to treat moderate to deep lines and creases around the nose and mouth. These demand more volume than, say, lip lines. Juvéderm Vollure® XC uses Vycross crosslinking, which is also used in Volbella® and Voluma®. This technology minimizes any swelling when Vollure® is injected.
How long will my results last with Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
Juvéderm Vollure® XC is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler on the market, providing volume for 18 months. That is six months longer than any other hyaluronic acid filler.
Are there side effects with Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
The potential side effects are the same as with other hyaluronic acid fillers. Allergic reactions are rare because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. The typical side effects are redness, slight swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection sites. This resolves quickly. There can also be some firmness and even lumps, but this rarely lasts beyond 7-10 days.
