What Is Juvederm Volite?
Juvederm Volite is a skin conditioning hyaluronic acid gel injectable treatment that was designed to improve skin quality by improving hydration, elasticity, and by stimulating collagen production to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It is a skin conditioning treatment and NOT a dermal filler.
How Does Juvederm Volite Work?
Juvederm Volite works to hydrate skin because of the high water-binding capacity of hyaluronic acid. It also increases the skin’s elasticity because hyaluronic acid also stimulates collagen production. These factors work together to soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. This gel is injected into the middle layers of the dermis across many sites in the treatment area to nourish the skin from the inside. Juvederm Volite is typically used to treat the face, neck, the chest/cleavage area, and the backs of hands.
Am I A Candidate For Juvederm Volite?
If you want to improve the smoothness or your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, then you are a good candidate for Juvederm Volite. The areas typically treated include the face, neck, chest, and back of hands. This treatment is generally appropriate for any age or skin type, even sensitive skin.
How Long Does A Treatment Take?
The Juvederm Volite treatment consists of a series of micro-injections given at many points across the area being treated. The actual series of injections can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, however, the preparation for the treatment can take an additional 45 minutes. Prior to the injections, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied to the area for up to 45 minutes. The cream will then be removed and the area cleansed again before beginning the series of injections. Patients spend approximately an hour in the office to complete this procedure.
What Results Will I See?
Following the treatment, there will be small raised areas where the injections were given. These will disappear within one or two hours after the treatment. Some patients experience bruising at the injection sites which will resolve in a few days. Patients are asked to avoid alcohol and make up for the first 12 hours after treatment and to avoid exercise for 48 hours. Within two weeks, patients will see smoother skin in which the appearance of lines has been reduced. Skin will appear to be more glowing because of added moisture and will have better elasticity. The results will last approximately 6 months after one treatment. It is recommended that patients have follow-up treatments every 6 to 9 months to maintain the healthy look of their skin.
Is There Any Downtime?
Because Juvaderm Volite is a minimally invasive procedure, there is no downtime involved. Injection marks may be visible but will resolve in one to three days and can be concealed with make-up if necessary.
