Facial lines and wrinkles can leave you looking older, more tired, and upset. Thankfully, the practice of Paul Pin, MD offers plenty of treatments to reverse the signs of aging. Not all of these treatments involve surgery. Many patients come to our Dallas, TX practice for dermal filler injections such as JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC.
Thanks to JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, patients with major lines and creases around the mouth can experience long-lasting cosmetic benefits.
What Is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is a dermal filler that helps reduce the appearance of lines around the nose and mouth. Patients who undergo JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injections experience less prominent signs of aging as a result.
The primary ingredient of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally found in the human body. This allows many people to get JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injections without risk of allergic reactions or other adverse side effects.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Candidates
Good candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC are people who experience deep lines, wrinkles, and creases around the mouth and nose. This includes the following common facial lines:
- Nasolabial folds
- Laugh lines
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Folds along the chin
Candidates should be at least 21 years old and not be pregnant or nursing. Realistic expectations about the risks, benefits, and long-term results of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC are also important.
The JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Procedure
The JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC procedure is completed during a short office visit. The overall treatment time is typically 15 to 20 minutes. Local anesthetic may be used to numb the injection sites before treatment.
Using a fine needle, the plastic surgeon makes a series of injections around the problematic lines and wrinkles. The plastic surgeon may wait a moment between injections to assess the effects of the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC and ensure optimal results are being achieved.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Recovery
Since JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC involves no surgery, there is no downtime after treatment and patients will not need to take time off from work. However, patients will be asked to avoid strenuous physical activities for 24 hours. It is also important to avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat during this time period.
Common side effects after JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC treatment include mild discomfort, bruising, swelling, itchiness, firmness, and redness around the injection site. These side effects will pass in a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses can be used as directed.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Results
The results of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC are usually visible after the procedure has been performed. Patients should notice less prominence of problem facial lines and creases. Results will improve as the side effects fade.
The cosmetic benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injections last up to 18 months. This makes JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC one of the longest lasting dermal fillers to address nasolabial folds. As the effects of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC fade, a repeat treatment can be performed to help prolong the cosmetic benefits.
