What is Juvederm Vollure® XC?
Juvederm Vollure XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and nasolabial folds around the mouth and nose. This injectable gel is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that promotes moisture production and suppleness of the skin.
Commonly referred to as “parentheses lines,” these facial wrinkles form as we age and the skin slowly loses moisture and elasticity. To make the skin more moist and pliable, Allergan recently introduced Juvederm Vollure XC for patients over the age of 21.
This product can be used in conjunction with Juvederm Voluma® XC, another injectable in the Juvederm family that lifts and reshapes sunken cheeks that have lost volume over time.
How Does Vollure XC Work?
Juvederm Vollure XC is a dermal filler that adds volume for a subtle, but overall improved appearance. While anti-aging creams and serums work to enhance our skin at the surface level, Vollure® XC works deep to soften these facial lines and folds for a naturally smoother look.
Is This Product Safe?
Juvederm Vollure XC has been approved by the FDA for use in patients 21 and older who have moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. The Juvederm line of injectable fillers has been approved as a safe treatment for areas of concern in the facial area, but none have been tested on other areas of the body.
When injected by one of our skilled clinicians at the Vein Centers of Connecticut, Juvederm Vollure XC should only cause mild side effects that will disappear shortly after treatment. This product has not been studied on women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Tell your doctor if you’re prone to excessive scarring or are currently taking medications that could prolong bleeding.
Clinical studies have proven that patients who receive Juvederm Vollure XC injections see long-lasting results for up to 18 months*. Before using this product, consult with our trained providers to determine the best course of treatment for your skin.
