As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, structure and volume which causes facial wrinkles and folds to form. At VITAHL Chicago, we offer a variety of safe, effective and non-invasive injectable dermal fillers to help combat these visible signs of age, including Vollure®, the newest addition to the Juvéderm® line of injectable fillers.

What is Vollure®?

Vollure® is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler formulated to provide correction to nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles and folds. A part of the Juvéderm® line of injectable dermal fillers, Vollure® is formulated with the same VYCROSS® technology as other Juvéderm® products. Vycross® uses both low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acids (HA) to improve the linkages between HA molecules and therefore the effectiveness of the HA once introduced to the skin. Vollure® with Vycross® technology helps better replenish facial volume and reduce the visible signs of aging than other products with HA alone. Also, Vollure® is formulated with varying lengths of the hyaluronic acid compound, which gives it a medium-level thickness, making it ideal for treating deeper facial wrinkles and folds.

What are the benefits of Vollure®?

Vollure® offers patients looking for non-invasive facial rejuvenation many benefits which include:

  • immediate results
  • injections which require very little time in your doctor’s office
  • no downtime post-procedure
  • customizable treatment plans, so you get the right amount of rejuvenation
  • natural-looking results

What are the possible side effects?

Common side effects may include tenderness, bruising, swelling, itching, redness, discomfort, discoloration, and/or other injection-related side effects. These natural and temporary side effects usually subside on their own within one week of your injection session, leaving behind smoothed wrinkles and folds, improved skin tone and volume and an overall younger look.

What symptoms and concern areas can Botox® improve?

Vollure® by Juvéderm can improve moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, folds and loss of volume in the facial area. If you have other concern areas which you wish to rejuvenate, talk to your VITAHL cosmetic medicine specialist about which of the Juvéderm line of products can help you achieve the final look and level of rejuvenation you want.

Am I a candidate for Vollure®?

Men and women who are interested in restoring facial volume and improving the appearance of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance are potential candidates for Vollure®. Before your injection session, we will discuss your goals for treatment and review your medical history and general health to determine if this is the right injectable dermal filler for you. Common contraindications for Vollure® include severe or multiple forms of allergy, allergies to lidocaine or Grams-positive bacterial proteins or a history of anaphylaxis. Also, talk to your VITAHL cosmetic medicine specialist if you plan to have facial surgery in the future.

What can I expect during my Vollure® treatment session?

Once you have been shown to your procedure room, your doctor will cleanse the concern area and then use a fine needle to inject a carefully pre-determined amount of the Vollure® filler where you want to see rejuvenation. Because your doctor can finely determine the amount of filler you will receive, you can rely on getting the right amount of rejuvenation, without looking overdone. A topical anesthetic can be applied before you injection session to reduce any discomfort associated with the injection process; however, Vollure® does contain lidocaine to minimize discomfort. Injection sessions typically last 30 to 40 minutes. Afterward, you will have little to no downtime associated with your Vollure® treatment. Most patients can immediately resume their regular schedule activities following their minimally-invasive Vollure® treatment.

How long before I see my results?

You can expect to see immediate improvement in the treated area following your treatment session, and the final results of Vollure® will develop over the course of the following week. Some individuals may need multiple Vollure® treatment sessions to achieve their rejuvenation goals. During your personalized consultation, your doctor will give you his opinion on how many treatments you may need, based on the condition of your skin, to get the results you want.

How long will my results last?

The results of your Vollure® treatment can last for up to 18 months; however, the length of results will vary from individual to individual. You will require touch-ups to maintain your new look, and your doctor will recommend the optimum schedule to maintain your level of rejuvenation.
