Sometimes during the natural aging process, wrinkles develop around the mouth and deep lines begin running from the corners of the nose to the edges of the mouth. These deep lines are nicknamed marionette lines but are technically called nasolabial folds. They develop as we age because the natural collagen in our skin decreases making our skin less firm. Wrinkles and deep lines of any kind can make us feel that we look prematurely old and cause us to feel self-conscious and less confident. Life is just too short to spend worrying about how old you look, so why not improve those wrinkles around your mouth and nose that are driving you into hiding!
Meet Juvederm Vollure
Juvederm Vollure was the first dermal filler that was FDA approved for treating facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in the human body. Vollure adheres to the skin in the targeted treatment areas and brings added moisture with it. The Vollure material is a softer dermal filler which means that your face will have a more natural shape and more natural movement to it.
Juvederm Vollure is injected into the treatment area just below the skin with a very small needle. The product is then massaged gently to ensure even distribution and proper shaping. The injection contains lidocaine to prevent patients from feeling pain during the injections so the entire process is fairly comfortable. Many patients will experience some bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection sites, but these problems subside within a week from the treatment.
Juvederm Vollure Consultations Available
A typical Vollure treatment will take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated, the severity of the folds and wrinkles being treated, and the patient’s desired outcomes. In more severe cases, more than one treatment may be needed to reach the patient’s ultimate goal.
Aside from the possible bruising or swelling that we mentioned before, there is no downtime with Juvederm Vollure dermal fillers. Patients can receive their treatments and resume their daily activities with a more youthful, refreshed look which can last up to 18 months. That is terrific news!
