JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ injectable gel adds volume to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and laugh lines.
Looking for a longer term solution which will smooth parentheses lines and wrinkles? Perhaps with age you’ve noticed laugh or smile lines around your nose and mouth due to a loss of skin elasticity? JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ can help. This dermal filler is specifically designed to address facial wrinkles around the mouth and lower face.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the newly FDA approved injectable filler designed to add volume beneath the nasolabial folds, or laugh lines. It uses Vycross technology to lift and contour these facial wrinkles and folds. This creates a more connected gel that’s firm enough to fill and soft enough for natural movement.The result is a more youthful appearance. It is more natural-looking and lasts a full year longer than other dermal fillers on the market.
Individual results may vary.
How JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC works
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC contains hyaluronic acid gel. This is compatible with the body, because hyaluronic acid is found in almost every single living thing. Therefore, the risk for any severe allergic reaction to the injection is very low. Hyaluronic acid (HA) acts like an inflated cushion that supports facial structures and tissues that have lost volume or elasticity in the aging process. In addition, HA brings water to the surface layers of skin, making it appear fresh and more supple.
What we love about it
This is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler in its category. It’s also immediate and reversible. Even more importantly, it allows changes in the contours of the face. Plus, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC lasts up to 18 months. The new formula produces minimal swelling, which means shorter recovery time and less discomfort. It adds subtle volume and can last 3 times as long as comparable products. It’s a great choice for men and women alike.
