VOLLURE™ in Philadelphia
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the body, and Allergan’s VYCROSS technology. In the skin, HA plays an important role in the structural matrix of cells. VYCROSS technology links both high and low HA molecular weights which allows for a more connected gel that will lift sunken skin.
How does VOLLURE™ work?
VOLLURE™ is an FDA-approved injectable gel that adds volume to the face and smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth leaving a younger more natural look. It is the newest addition to the Juvederm filler family.
Who can get VOLLURE™?
VOLLURE™ is an optimal dermal filler treatment for our patients over the age of 21.
Who should not get VOLLURE™?
Patients with severe allergies to hyaluronic based fillers or lidocaine mixed in the filler, a history of anaphylaxis, an active infection near the site of injection and women who are currently pregnant and/or breastfeeding should not receive VOLLURE™.
What should I know before my VOLLURE™ treatment?
Patients should stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and fish oil supplements for two weeks prior to injection, to decrease your risk of bruising at the injection site. We suggest that our patients take Arnica two days prior to treatment.
Is there any downtime after my VOLLURE™ treatment?
Although there is no real downtime for our Philadelphia and Main Line patients, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity 24 hours following the injection.
What are some of the possible side effects of VOLLURE™?
Potential side effects for patients include: injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching.
What should I expect after my VOLLURE™ treatment?
Our patients should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
How long will my VOLLURE™ treatment last?
Patients should experience results for up to 18 months.
