Treat Your Nasolabial Folds with Vollure
Vollure, also known as Juvederm Vollure, is a type of hyaluronic acid-based facial filler that has specifically been developed to treat nasolabial folds and parentheses lines around the mouth. It is one of the longest lasting dermal filler treatments available in the market today for the midface region. The results provided by the Juvederm Vollure treatment can last up to several months.
Traditionally, nasolabial folds and parentheses lines were treated using just standard Juvederm injections. However, Vollure now offers much better results, thanks to Vycross Technology. The technology allows the doctor to contour the injected area and deliver results that last longer.
What Does Vollure Treat?
As mentioned above, Vollure can be used to smooth out moderate to heavy wrinkles and fine lines that show up as a result of aging. This is especially true for wrinkles and fine lines near the nose and mouth.
Vollure is injected deep into the facial tissue, where it works to add temporary volume in the nasolabial folds and the parentheses.
The procedure delivers noticeable, but subtle results that are long-lasting. The goal is to offer a look that makes your facial skin look naturally refreshed.
The Contents of Vollure
Vollure is essentially a dermal filler that contains a small amount of lidocaine, which helps provide an anesthetic effect. The anesthetic effect helps patients not feel any sort of discomfort during the injection process.
However, the active ingredient in Vollure is hyaluronic acid. This is an acid that actually occurs in the human body naturally. Its role is to transport and deliver nutrients to the skin, help the skin retain water, thereby, ensuring hydration, and to act as a cushioning agent.
Is Everyone Eligible for Vollure?
Most adults are good candidates for Vollure. However, you may not be able to qualify for Vollure if…
• You are known to have multiple allergies to multiple substances.
• You have a history of allergies that advance to anaphylaxis.
• You are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins.
Typical Treatment Areas for Vollure
As stated earlier, Vollure is most often used for treating facial wrinkles and smooth folds. This, needless to say, covers areas such as the parentheses lines near the mouth and the nasolabial folds. But, Vollure isn’t limited to treating these areas. There are many other areas of the face that can benefit from Vollure. For instance, the chin, the jawline, the perioral lines, and the temples.
Your doctor or medical care provider will assess your needs to determine the exact treatment technique required.
In order to achieve optimal results, a single session of Vollure is more than enough. The correction is temporary in any case. Over time, the dermal filler will break down and get absorbed by the body. As a result, touch-up injections or repeat sessions will be needed. However, less material may be used for the repeat sessions.
Since this is a minimally invasive injectable treatment, you can rest easy knowing that you won’t have to take on a lot of downtime. You can safely return to your normal activities, but it is advised that you avoid strenuous activities for about a week.
