Because of age and other issues, your skin loses its elasticity and tautness, which leads to the development of wrinkles and lines. Although you may apply moisturizing and skin-supporting creams and serums every day, they usually don’t go deeper than the surface of your skin.

For real improvement of your facial folds and lines, a deeper treatment is required. As such, to correct these moderate to severe wrinkles, a facial rejuvenation treatment plan featuring Juvéderm Vollure XC is a viable solution. View our menu of services to see more rejuvenation treatments.

What Is Juvéderm Vollure XC?

Juvéderm Vollure XC is one of the newest hyaluronic acid dermal fillers from the Juvéderm line manufactured by Allergan. In fact, the Juvéderm collection is the best-selling line of hyaluronic acid fillers in the country.

Each of the dermal filler treatments is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps your skin retain moisture and softness. As a result, the injections are easily biocompatible and deliver revitalizing effects to your appearance. To see these results from our patients of this dermal filler treatment, view our before and after photos.

What Does Juvéderm Vollure XC Address?

It is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler intended specifically for correcting moderate to severe facial lines and folds. It is particularly effective in addressing parentheses lines (smile lines) around the nose and mouth, which are often the most noticeable wrinkles on the face.

When injected into the skin, this dermal filler goes deep into the tissue to reduce wrinkles as well as smooth the skin for a more youthful appearance. It adds volume and vibrancy to the skin that has started to sag and dull.

In clinical trials, it was found to be very durable, as well, with effects that normally last up to 18 months, although your results may vary. Contact us today in Beverly Hills to treat facial lines around the nose and mouth.

Additional Benefits of Juvéderm Vollure XC

Because the injections address troublesome areas around the nose and mouth, they also can improve the following conditions in nearby areas:

  • Enhanced overall appearance of the mouth, including lips
  • Added cheek/jaw volume and contour

A Next-Generation Hyaluronic Acid Filler

Juvéderm Vollure XC is considered the next generation in hyaluronic acid fillers. The secret to its effectiveness lies in its proprietary Vycross technology, which helps deliver enhanced effects that look and feel natural.

With this technology, different weights of hyaluronic acid molecules are blended seamlessly so that the gel is firm enough to hold its shape for a longer duration, yet soft enough to be pliable. Facial movements and expressions are easy to make.

Potential Side Effects

Potential side effects that are commonly experienced by patients are usually restricted to the injection site. Although results can vary, the side effects are normally mild (they shouldn’t impact your daily activities) and should subside within 14 days. 

  • Pain or soreness
  • Bruising
  • Firmness
  • Tender to the touch
  • Redness or irritation
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Bumps or lumps
  • Discoloration

Frequently Asked Questions about Juvéderm Vollure XC

Q: Will Juvéderm Vollure XC treatment cause a long recovery?

A: We know this is important for our busy Los Angeles patients who will be pleased to learn that a single session with Juvéderm Vollure XC specialist usually takes 15 to 60 minutes. This varies based on how many injections are received, which facial areas are injected, and how severe the wrinkles are.

You can expect little or no downtime once a treatment session is finished, although it’s a good idea not to do overly strenuous activity for the first 24-48 hours.

Q: I don’t like needles – are injections painful?

A: Like all of the Juvéderm dermal fillers, the “XC” label means the substance has been formulated with lidocaine for reduced discomfort and/or pain throughout a treatment session.

Furthermore, injections are administered with ultrafine needles, which typically cause no more discomfort than a tiny pinprick.

Q: When will I see results?

A: Although your results may vary, many patients usually see results instantly, and improvement continues for the next 3-6 months.

Q: Juvéderm XC also addresses facial wrinkles and folds – how is it different from Juvéderm Vollure XC?

A: One main difference is the duration of effects. Juvéderm XC usually delivers results that last 6-12 months while Juvéderm Vollure XC produces improvement for up to 18 months. 

The other major difference lies within the technology used to formulate the two fillers. Juvéderm XC is crafted with Hylacross technology; it crosslinks uniform weights of the hyaluronic acid molecules.

On the other hand, because Vollure is crafted with Vycross technology that crosslinks differently-weighted molecules, it goes deeper and spreads less easily, yet is still soft and moldable.
