Juvederm Vollure is a Hyaluronic Acid for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds that lasts up to 18 months. Nasolabial folds are static lines that appear around your nose and mouth when your face is at rest.
This happens over time as your skin loses some of the building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen) that give the skin its structure. Vollure maintains correction and also allows easy movement in the treated area with a molecular weight mix specific for this area.
A topical anesthetic may be used to reduce pain associated with this treatment. Patients are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time to apply the numbing cream.
A mild anesthetic may also be combined with the product to immediately reduce discomfort during the treatment. The discomfort after the procedure is minimal, and Tylenol may be taken for any post-procedural discomfort.
In addition to discomfort, patients may experience minor swelling from the treatment. On average this resolves within 24 hours.
However, it may last as long as 72 hours. We recommend applying ice intermittently after the treatment to reduce swelling. Patients may resume normal activities after receiving treatment, and may apply makeup to conceal any bruising or redness.
