Vollure: The Newest Dermal Filler

Vollure:  The Newest Dermal Filler

Juvéderm Vollure XC, is the first and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, like the nasolabial folds, that lasts up to 18 months in people over the age of 21.

According to an exciting clinical trial featuring the dermal filler Juvéderm Vollure XC:

  • 82 percent of patients were very satisfied after six months
  • 68 percent of patients were satisfied at 18 months
  • 59 percent of subjects saw improvement in nasolabial folds for up to 18 months

These findings are significant because most fillers last only about a year with lower patient satisfaction scores.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is formulated with Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS® technology. VYCROSS® technology blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid allowing this dermal filler to last longer. Also, JUVÉDERM VOLLUMA designed to increase volume lost due to aging of the cheeks and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC designed for lip augmentation and correction of perioral rhytids use VYCROSS® technology.

As fillers improve, you get to expect a longer correction and smoother correction. The patented Vycross® technology blends different molecule weights to achieve a particularly smooth result. Vycross cross-linking makes the fillers more malleable and easier to inject, further improving the outcome. Juvederm Vollure contains lidocaine for injection comfort.

Vollure is used for moderate to severe lines in the mid face including:

  • Laugh Lines
  • Marionette Lines
  • Horizontal Chin Lines

How is Vollure different from Voluma?
Vollure maintains correction and allows easy movement in the treated area with a molecule weight mix specific for this area. Voluma is weighted heavier than Vollure and is not as elastic in nature. Volume replacement in the cheek is not subject to the same repeated movements in the mouth area, so a dermal filler that is stiffer, like Voluma, works best for cheek augmentation.

Generally, you can expect the denser fillers to be used in areas that require deeper levels of product injection and thinner fillers to be used in areas that are frequently mobile.

Juvederm’s four formulas, Juvederm XC (lines and folds), Volbella (lips and lip lines), Vollure (mid face moderate to severe lines) and Voluma (cheeks) all are designed to give you the best results in the areas they have been developed for.

Are there side effects?

The most common side effects seen in the clinical study were temporary injection site redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness, lumps/bumps, redness, pain, discoloration, and itching. Most side effects are mild or moderate and last 7 days or less.

One should limit strenuous exercise, exposure to extensive sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours following treatment.
