JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the newly FDA approved injectable filler designed to add volume beneath the nasolabial fold (laugh lines) to lift and contour using Vycross technology which creates a more connected gel (firm enough to fill and soft enough for natural movement), to create a more youthful appearance. Its breakthrough is that it’s more natural-looking and lasts a full year longer than other injectables on the market.

How JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC works
A hyaluronic acid gel injection (compatible with the human body as it’s naturally found in almost every single living thing,) acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
What we love about it
This is the longest lasting injecible filler in its category. It’s immediate and reversible. It allows changes in the contours of the face. And it lasts up to 18 months. The new formula produces minimal swelling, which means shorter recovery time and less discomfort. It adds a subtle volume and can be last 3 times as long as comparable products. A great choice for men– it’s practically indetectible.
What to expect
Before beginning treatment, we will examine the nasolabial area to determine if JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is right for you. Then we will tailor a treatment designed for your aesthetic goals. One treatment (some patients require a touch-up) is complete in 15-20 minutes. You will likely experience some tenderness, swelling, bruising, or itching for up to 2 weeks.
How many treatments?
One treatment and a possible touch-up lasts up to 18 months.
Possible side effects
The most common side effects include tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. Most side effects were mild or moderate and lasted 14 days or less. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel, and while rare, the complications can be serious. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or scarring. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
