Clients and doctors alike have rejoiced with the FDA’s introduction of Juvederm Vollure, a new HA-based filler for treating moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds, laugh lines, chin lines and marionette lines with results that last up to an astonishing 18 months. With a patient satisfaction rate of 82%, Vollure is on its way to becoming a practice favorite and a staple in the arsenal of anti-aging technology.
Juvederm’s Vollure employs a revolutionary proprietary system called “Vycross” which affords the hyaluronic acid its long-lasting results by engineering the structure of its molecules to achieve maximum duration. The formula is able to add nuanced gel-based volume to the troughs created by deep facial folds, thus restoring the skin to more youthful, radiant days. What’s more, the Vycross engineering creates a filler that is far more flexible and malleable than its counterparts, allowing the doctor to achieve more subtle, personalized results.
Vollure relies on the power of hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient, a biocompatible compound – like collagen and elastin – that is slowly depleted with age. Hyaluronic acid and collagen give the skin its firmness and smoothness, so when these molecules start to dwindle, we see facial folds, troughs, wrinkles and fine lines appear, as well as a startling loss of facial volume. Vollure is a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical way to correct the loss of these all-important skin-enhancing compounds and beautifully revitalize the complexion.
To make Vollure more comfortable and client-friendly, its makers added lidocaine to its formula, a gently numbing anesthetic that makes the treatment virtually painless. Clients experience no downtime and can return to normal activities such as work or school directly after their Saratoga Springs appointment. If you require additional anesthesia, Dr. Ridha is happy to provide you with a cream that will further numb the treatment area.
Juvederm Vollure works instantly to start reducing nasolabial folds, laugh lines and marionette lines, so you will see results as soon as your first session. For more comprehensive changes, however, Dr. Ridha suggests repeating treatment with Vollure several times over the course of a few months, especially for those with severely stubborn facial folds and wrinkles. Once you have achieved the results you require, you can relax and let Vollure do its job for up to 18 months, at which point treatment will need to be renewed.
While administering injectables can seem to the layperson like a fairly easy task, it actually requires a nuanced aesthetic sensibility and a highly trained artistic eye to achieve results that appear effortless and natural. Dr. Ridha is a double board certified plastic surgeon who is passionate about preserving the spontaneity of your facial expressions so that you can enjoy your rejuvenated appearance without being self-conscious about having undergone “work.”
