WHAT IS JUVEDERM VOLLURE?
Juvederm Vollure is one of the newest additions to the Juvederm family of fillers, recently having been FDA approved in 2017 for use in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in adults over 21. Vollure is a HA (hyaluronic acid) based filler that has the consistency of a smooth gel, and a long-lasting restorative effect on these classic signs of aging.
WHY CHOOSE VOLLURE?
As a member of the prestigious Juvederm family of fillers, Vollure will surely not disappoint. This filler contains 0.3% of the numbing agent lidocaine for a smoother and more comfortable injection experience. Further, Vollure is one of the longest lasting HA fillers in the market that has been approved for use on the lower part of the face. Through Allergan’s patented Vycross technology, this filler is more durable, offers more natural-looking results, and allows for a more balanced treatment.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Juvederm Vollure is made to reduce deep parentheses lines (laugh lines or nasolabial folds, from the nose to the corner of the mouth) specifically, but it can be used to smoothen moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds anywhere in the lower part of the face (such as marionette lines, smile lines, jowls, lips, etc.) and as well as contour areas such as the jaw or cheeks. Further, Vollure is able to give an overall rejuvenated look to clients.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE TREATMENT?
In our office we provide our filler clients with complimentary Arnica, an oral medication that greatly reduces the occurrence of bleeding, bruising and/or swelling during and after treatment. This should be taken starting 2 days before treatment.
Please refrain from taking any blood thinners, or anti-inflammatory medication, which includes Advil, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, Vitamin E, etc. about a week before treatment. This also reduces the chance of bleeding, bruising, and swelling. Please avoid alcoholic drinks for about 24-48 hours before treatment.
Clients are encouraged to come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our Nurses to discuss targeted treatment and determine the best treatment for each client’s individual needs. After booking, clients should refrain from taking any blood thinners right before treatment. This should be consistent avoidance of things like Advil, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Fish Oil, and even alcoholic drinks for about a day or two before coming to get filler injections. Further, our office provides complimentary Arnica (an oral medication that reduces the likelihood/prevents bruising, swelling, and bleeding during treatment) to our clients, and they can start taking it a day or two before their treatments.
Our Nurses will initially put a topical numbing agent on the treatment area before commencing injections. The comfort of our clients is a priority at DermaFashion. Treatment should be about 30-60 minutes total. Our Nurses will be sure to address client concerns and needs during treatment through multiple examinations following each injection to assure evenness and appropriate targeting of problem areas.
It will take about a month to see the full final result, but many clients have been able to see initial results immediately after treatment. However, it is important to be patient for the full results to reveal themselves. There is not much downtime following treatment, and any side effects clients may experience should dissipate after a few days. Clients can resume everyday activities the day after treatment, but should refrain from strenuous physical activity, exercise, extensive sun exposure, blood thinners, and alcoholic drinks for about 24 hours post treatment.
