Juvederm Vollure XC or Juvederm XC are the treatments we most often recommend for puppet lines (nasolabial folds) and in this application Juvederm Vollure XC can last up to 18 months and Juvederm XC can last up to a year with optimal treatment. The duration of the effects of Juvederm Voluma will vary from client to client depending on lifestyle, genetics, and other factors. However, you can reasonably expect your results to last between 18 months and two years. For best results, we strongly recommend that you follow up as soon as you notice the effects begin to wear off.
This way, you will maintain your youthful appearance even when the initial injection starts to degrade. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that helps restore skin hydration and add volume, effectively smoothing lines and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, but that decreases its production as the skin ages. This means that Juvederm is incredibly biocompatible, although the body breaks it down over time, making treatment with this dermal injectable temporary.
Juvederm provides instant results and patients can expect smoother skin immediately after treatment, diminishing the appearance of nasolabial folds. Throughout the natural aging process, you'll notice that the skin under your eyes will begin to sag as the fat pads that keep your face full and youthful begin to fall off. The result is a gloomy, hollow look with wrinkles under the eyes. While Juvederm Vollure is not specifically designed for use under the eyes, the soft, supple gel is actually quite effective at restoring volume and reducing wrinkles along the tear canal and under the eyes.
This unauthorized use of Juvederm Vollure results in a supple, full, soft and youthful look around the eyes. As a result of Vycross technology, Juvederm Vollure results can stay in effect longer than any other Juvederm filler. Therefore, when patients ask how long Juvederm Vollure lasts under the eyes, the answer is up to 18 months. As the effects fade, the procedure can be repeated approximately every two years.
Green will review your cosmetic goals and facial structure during your consultation to determine which injectable gel from the Juvederm family of dermal fillers would be best for you. Juvederm Vollure can be used for lip augmentation, in addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Of the three Juvederm lines using this advanced technology (Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Vollure), Voluma is the strongest and thickest formulation. Due to Allergan's Vycross technology and the combination of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids (HA), Juvederm Vollure has an extremely strong ability to retain and attract moisture and “lift the skin” in different areas of the face.
Juvederm Vollure provides fast, long-lasting results that will become very popular for facial rejuvenation and “liquid facelifts”. Treatment with Juvederm Vollure is non-invasive or ablative, meaning there is no recovery time after the procedure and the risk of side effects is minimal. People who are allergic to lidocaine or the gram-positive bacterial proteins used in these products or who have had previous allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid fillers should not receive Juvederm Vollure injection. Juvederm Vollure XC is used to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles associated with aging and volume loss, especially around the nasolabial folds.
Green recommends applying ice packs (not directly to the skin), immediately after any type of Juvederm injection. Allergan, the manufacturer of the Juvederm dermal filler collection, introduced this product for patients 21 and older. While other Juvederm fillers last up to a year, Juvederm Vollure can last up to 18 months on the lips. Juvederm Voluma, Volbella and Vollure have a high level of crosslinking between heavy and light molecules.
The only two Juvederm products that are approved by the FDA for injection into the lips include Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC. Juvederm Vollure could be described as a cross between Volbella and Voluma, as it has the durability of filling nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines) while allowing people to retain natural facial expressions and movement. Because Juvederm Vollure is able to treat deep wrinkles while remaining soft enough to allow movement, it's a great filler for treating puppet lines. .
