Exciting Results with Vollure XC
I was noticing little vertical lines above my upper lip and was wondering what I can do. I wanted natural looking results without increasing the size of my lips. I went to see Susan MacPherson, Owner of Beauté Therapies Medical Spa. She informed me about all my options and we decided to go with Vollure XC. Vollure XC lasts for up to 18 months, which is what I was looking for.
What is Vollure?
Vollure is the newest member of the Juvederm family of fillers available in the United States. Vollure is a hyaluronic acid product the restores volume to areas of volume loss and helps with wrinkles. It has been used in Europe for several years under the name Volift. Similar to Voluma and Volbella, Vollure is made using Vycross technology. This means that different sizes of hyaluronic acid are used, and it has a higher level of cross linking, which makes it last longer.
What does Vollure treat?
Vollure is designed to address moderate to severe wrinkles on the face. These include laugh lines (also known as nasolabial folds) that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. In some people the lines extend to the jawline as what are called the marionette lines. Additionally, Vollure can also address secondary wrinkles around these areas.
What is the difference between Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure?
The difference between the three products in the Juvederm family that are made using Vycross technology is the amount of hyaluronic acid in them. Voluma has the highest level of hyaluronic acid, allowing for volumization and a lift in the upper cheeks. Volbella has the lowest level of hyaluronic acid, making it a softer product suitable for the lips and fines lines around the lips. Vollure has an intermediate level of hyaluronic acid, making it ideal for laugh lines and marionette lines. It is also used on the lips.
When will I see results with Vollure?
The wonderful thing about Vollure is that the results are seen right away. There is some swelling that lasts up to two weeks after a Vollure treatment. Most people actually enjoy the swelling because it improves the appearance of wrinkles. Conclusive results with Vollure are seen once the swelling subsides after approximately two weeks
How long does Vollure last?
Most patients enjoy the results of their Vollure treatment for up to 18 months with optimum correction. Some people have touch up Vollure treatments to maintain desired results.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the skin that binds 1,000 times its weight in water. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid will draw water into the area to fill wrinkles and folds.
