Juvederm Vollure

Vollure®

JUVÉDERM® Vollure® is a clear Hyaluronic-based gel injectable filler used to smooth deep wrinkles for a refreshed look, as well as gently restoring natural-looking contours in the lower face. JUVÉDERM Vollure is an effective and natural way to replace your skin’s natural Hyaluronic acid loss over time, bringing back its volume and softening unwanted lines and wrinkles. This innovative filler is designed for facial contouring and the treatment of deep skin depressions such as nasolabial folds.

This great non-surgical option with minimal downtime allows patients to get immediate, natural results lasting up to eighteen months and potentially longer. TLC Laser & Skincare’s free consultations gives patients the time to discuss their areas of concern before the provider will determine which product will best suite your needs. We evaluate the main areas of concern and work together to identify where the patient will receive the most benefit.

Once a JUVÉDERM Vollure treatment plan has been determined, TLC Laser & Skincare professionals apply a topical Lidocaine-based numbing cream to the area(s) being treated. The numbing cream takes affect after 10-15 minutes, whereupon the area is thoroughly cleansed and prepped. A needle is then used at the appropriate injection sites; and depending on the area being treated, the procedure may require multiple injections.  A typical visit lasts 30-40 minutes.

Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM Vollure with lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA (Hyaluronic Acid) chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.

This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anesthetic. Results are seen immediately after the procedure and full correction within a week. With the new innovative Vycross technology JUVÉDERM Vollure® is expected to last up to 18 months.  There is minimal downtime associated with JUVÉDERM Vollure. Patients are given a cooling agent to apply to the treated areas immediately following the procedure.

 

JUVÉDERM Vollure is a technique-sensitive treatment—so be sure to look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with JUVÉDERM Vollure.

How long does JUVÉDERM Vollure last?

 JUVÉDERM Vollure should last up to 18 months-sometimes longer, depending on the patient.

When will I see JUVÉDERM Vollure results?

JUVÉDERM Vollure results are immediate, and you can expect full correction within seven days.

 

Is one brand or product better than another?

While there are a number of products for facial wrinkles JUVÉDERM Vollure is one of the longest lasting products for treatment in the nasolabial fold area, while maintaining a smooth and natural correction.

 

Can I get JUVÉDERM Vollure the day before a big event?

While there is found to be significantly less swelling with JUVÉDERM Vollure than other fillers, we still recommend not scheduling around any major events due to potential bruising that could last up to a week.

 

Does the JUVÉDERM Vollure procedure hurt?

With the topical numbing applied before the procedure, patients describe JUVÉDERM Vollure as a pinch with pressure. Some spots are more sensitive than others, but patients generally tolerate the procedure well in our experience.

 

How does JUVÉDERM Vollure get rid of my wrinkles?

JUVÉDERM Vollure builds up the lost natural hyaluronic acid in the skin adding volume to the treated areas. With the VYCROSS technology, the results are seen to be smoother and longer lasting than other standard fillers.

Does it really matter who does my JUVÉDERM Vollure?

Like many other dermal fillers there are specialty injection techniques and skills required to maintain a natural and even look. It is highly recommended that a well-trained medical provider, who knows and has extensive experience with facial anatomy, perform the procedure in order to prevent complications and give you the best possible results.

 

How much does JUVÉDERM Vollure cost?

The JUVÉDERM Vollure treatment cost is based on how many syringes are used for the procedure. The number varies depending on the areas being treated and wrinkle depth. An optimal treatment plan and cost will be discussed during the free consultation with our nurse injector. They will give you an expected price prior to the procedure. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the nurse injector who is administering your treatment.

 

Can I get JUVÉDERM Vollure done the same day as other injectable procedures?

Yes, you can receive JUVÉDERM Vollure the same day you receive other injectable treatments such as Botox, Dysport, Voluma XC. We do prefer, however, to treat after any laser procedures, unless we are treating in different areas.

 

What happens if I need more correction or I didn’t achieve the results I’d anticipated?

As a practice based on patient satisfaction and results, TLC Laser & Skincare offers a 2 week follow up visit and is happy to perform adjustments after your treatment. We are true believers that less is more, so there are many cases where we start more conservative and can add more to the treatment if necessary, to give patients a more natural result.
