AUSTIN JUVEDERM VOLLURE
Are you starting to notice fine lines and folds around your lips, nose, and chin? Good news! Austin Juvederm Vollure XC is here. The XC stands for “extra comfort” meaning that this hyaluronic acid based cosmetic filler contains lidocaine! This is our new favorite filler at our Juvederm Austin Medspa that is used to smooth out marionette lines and nasolabial folds, or to the lips for a beautiful result. It can be injected during a short visit to our Austin medspa, or at our new location The Medspa NW Hills. You can resume normal activities right away, but there is always a chance of bruising with any procedure involving a needle. Also, you will probably have some swelling. However, as a non-surgical rejuvenation treatment, its the perfect way to rejuvenate your appearance without committing to surgery or a lengthy recovery period.
Austin Juvederm Vollure XC is the most recent addition to the Juvederm family of fillers. We are one of the first Austin Medspa’s to carry it and be thoroughly trained by Allergan.
This filler is extra exciting because it was approved by the FDA in March 2017 to correct moderate to several folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Allergan (the manufacturer) keeps getting better, and as you would expect of a new cosmetic filler, Vollure boasts some improvements upon older versions of Juvederm. This filler can stay put for for up to 18 months while offering incredibly smooth, natural-looking results.
ERASE THE SIGNS OF AGING WITH JUVEDERM VOLLURE
As we get older, the G word (gravity) along with the loss of collagen and elastin from our skin, result in the appearance of lines and folds across the face and sinking or sagging skin. There is no way around it, facial volume diminishes over time. Lines will deepen and become more pronounced and a tired appearance can overtake the face.
Juvederm Vollure can minimize the appearance of these lines and folds and help to restore lost volume in areas some other fillers cannot. Juvederm Vollure can help:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines & frown (or downward turn to corners of mouth)
- Laugh lines, also called “parentheses lines”
- Restore lip volume
- Horizontal wrinkles across the chin
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH JUVEDERM VOLLURE
During your treatment session, one of our Injection Specialists will first apply a topical numbing agent for your comfort. The next step is to inject small amounts of Juvederm Vollure beneath the targeted lines and folds. The active ingredient in Juvederm Vollure is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar substance that creates volume and smoothness in the skin. The results of this hyaluronic acid based filler can be seen instantly as it increases volume in the treated area. As the volume increases, folds and lines become less visible.
HOW IS JUVEDERM VOLLURE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER JUVEDERM PRODUCTS?
Juvederm Ultra Plus was the first product created by Juvederm. The major difference between that and Vollure is that Vollure offers longer-lasting results. Most of our patients will enjoy the results of their treatment for up to 18 months! Juvederm Voluma is best used in the cheek area, although we do use it other areas based on your treatment regime. Juvederm Volbella is for the smokers lines and fine lines around the mouth.
FAQS JUVEDERM VOLLURE TREATMENTS
WHY IS JUVEDERM VOLLURE SO EFFECTIVE?
Austin Juvederm Vollure uses a special mixture of hyaluronic acid with a longer life span. This hyaluronic acid is a gel like substance that molds to your face and lifts sinking skin. The new technology is soft enough to frame your face, while still making a noticeable difference in lines, folds, and wrinkles.which allows the gel to deliver more consistent, stable results. The product lasts longer and can be injected more precisely. Once it is injected, the filler fills in depleted areas in the skin for better volume and a smoother appearance.
I’M NOT CRAZY ABOUT NEEDLES
We understand your concern. We are experienced provides and do everything we can to make you comfortable. We use tiny needles to inject the filler. Juvederm Vollure is formulated with lidocaine, which also helps with reducing pain.
Moreover, should you still want more protection from discomfort, you may have a topical numbing cream applied to the targeted area beforehand. Tell your medical specialist about your concerns so that you have the most pleasant treatment session possible.
HOW MUCH DOWNTIME IS THERE WITH AUSTIN JUVEDERM VOLLURE?
We know our Austin medspa patients are busy, and the filler treatment itself will not significantly affect your schedule. A treatment session usually lasts 15-60 minutes, depending on the number of injections and the area(s) being treated.
We employ advanced aesthetic injectors who are up to date on the latest injection techniques. That being said, bruising and swelling are always possible, so please plan accordingly.
HOW IS JUVEDERM VOLLURE DIFFERENT THAN BOTOX?
Cosmetic fillers such as Austin Juvederm Vollure are designed to do something totally different than Botox or Dysport.
Cosmetic fillers address static wrinkles and lines – those that form due to aging, sun exposure, loss of skin volume, and more. They can also help plump, lift, and fill in depleted skin. This is a gel like substance that stays with you for 6-12months.
Botox and Dysport on the other hand, help to correct dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that develop as a result of making various expressions every day. The job of Botox and Dysport is simply to relax the muscles that are used to make those wrinkle-causing expressions, allowing the skin to lay smooth and youthful. Any lines that are there take time to go away, once the expression has been stopped. We can help them go away quicker with a facial or a microneedling series!
