JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is an FDA-approved hyaluronic-acid (HA) dermal filler that is specifically formulated to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This next-generation product from the JUVÉDERM® family contains advanced VYCROSS® technology, which allows it to provide longer-lasting volume and tissue support than traditional HA fillers. When injected along the smile lines and nasolabial folds, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC produces smooth, soft, flexible results that can last up to 18 months for most patients. Plastic surgeon Christine Petti, MD has had great success incorporating JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC into her practice and many of her patients are extremely satisfied with the youthful volume the product provides.
Dr. Petti often combines JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC with other fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic to beautifully restore diminished volume and smooth wrinkles for a completely rejuvenated look.
Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC bonds with moisture below the skin to plump tissue and smooth the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. The long-lasting formula can be especially effective along the nasolabial folds, which can form between the cheeks and the upper lip as the face ages. The strong molecular bonds of VYCROSS® technology enable JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC to remain cohesive and provide lasting volume for up to 18 months, which is longer than any other dermal filler designed to fill wrinkles and creases. For added comfort during injection, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to numb the tissue.
The JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC Procedure
Dr. Petti is a highly-qualified and experienced injector and has undergone advanced training sessions to learn about the latest injection techniques and products. Before Dr. Petti begins your treatment, she will carefully plan her injection strategy and make some markings along the skin for guidance. Next, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin to prevent potential discomfort during the injections. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC is then precisely injected into the skin through a thin needle to create the desired cosmetic effects. Some slight swelling and redness may develop after the injections are complete, but these effects typically fade quickly. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities right after treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC Recovery and Results
The initial results of treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC are often immediately visible; however, the full results may be more apparent a couple of days after the procedure when any mild swelling or bruising has completely dissipated. Dr. Petti is always careful not to overfill the treatment areas and has earned a reputation for the natural-looking results she achieves with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC and other injectable treatments. In some cases, you may opt to return to see Dr. Petti for a touch-up treatment to perfect your final results. Your new look may last between 12 and 18 months, depending on how your body interacts with the product. If you are interested in maintaining your results, Dr. Petti can advise you on the appropriate time to consider your next treatment.
