Q: What is Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
A: Juvéderm® Vollure® XC was developed using proprietary Vycross technology, formulated with an innovative combination of low and high (90/10) 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, while absorbing less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anesthetic in the syringe. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
Q: What areas does Juvéderm Vollure® XC treat?
A: Vollure® XC is most commonly used to correct nasolabial folds — typically referred to as “smile lines” or laugh lines” — and is available to patients over the age of 21. You don’t use Vollure® XC for cheeks, lips, or under the eyes, but there are other products specifically designed for those regions.
Q: What is the difference between Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm Vollure® XC?
A: Juvéderm® XC is the original injectable gel that instantly smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Its effectiveness has been proven time and time again, delivering real results that last up to 12 months. Juvéderm® Vollure® XC softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results up to 18 months.
Q: When can I expect to see results from Juvéderm® Vollure® XC?
A: Results are seen immediately after the procedure and full correction within a week. Results last up to 18 months and have been engineered to give a longer-lasting more natural look.
Q: How much does Juvéderm® Vollure® XC cost?
A: The Juvéderm® Vollure® XC treatment cost is based on how many syringes are used for the procedure. The number varies depending on the areas being treated, and the depth of correction desired. The consultation prior to the treatment will provide you with the exact amount of product and costs customized for your needs.
Q: What are the side effects of receiving a Juvéderm® Vollure® XC treatment?
A: Most commonly, post treatment you will experience a little redness and swelling, however, it has been reported that the new Vollure® XC causes less swelling in general. Any side-effects that occur should resolve within a week, leaving you with soft, flawless volume. Bruising is always a risk when using injections so to minimize that risk, we recommend being off fish oils, Vitamin E, and aspirin 1-2 weeks prior to treatment.
