Juvederm Vollure for Smile Lines

As we age we tend to develop lines, wrinkles, folds, and an overall decline in our youthful appearance. This decline is due to a decrease in collagen production over the course of years. Dermal fillers can prevent fine lines, deeper lines, and hollows from occurring in the face without the need for invasive plastic surgery.

In terms of dermal fillers, Juvederm Vollure is among the latest choices. Unique hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm Vollure are specially formulated for treating nasolabial folds, smile lines, marionettes, and oral commissures. It is one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market, lasting up to 18 months. It was Juvederm Ultra Plus before Juvederm Vollure that was most commonly used for injection in the midface. Through the use of the Vycross technology, Dr. Schwarzburg can achieve long-lasting results with Juvederm Vollure.

A board-certified cosmetic physician on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Dr. Schwarzburg was one of the first to implement Juvederm Vollure following its FDA approval in 2017. Allergan’s Botox and Juvederm products are well known to him. Dr. Schwarzburg provides the best treatments for nasolabial folds, lip lines, hollows in the cheeks, thin lips, and fine lines and wrinkles. He recommends noninvasive cosmetic interventions to treat these skin concerns.

What is Juvederm Vollure XC?

Using Juvederm Vollure, you can reduce wrinkles and lines in the face and improve volume in the skin. It is composed of hyaluronic acid filler that is injected into the skin. As a medium filler, Juvederm Vollure is an excellent choice for reducing facial wrinkles that are moderate to severe. 

Using Juvederm Vollure cosmetic injectables, wrinkles, folds, and lines of the skin are filled and therefore eliminated. During a hyaluronic acid injection, the moisture content of the dermis increases, plumping up the skin, which in turn leads to fewer wrinkles. For years, dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid have been on the market. The Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Juvederm Voluma XC, and Juvederm Volbella XC are also available. Using these unique fillers to inject into the skin enables them to conform and stay intact. 

What are the Advantages of Juvederm Vollure?

A special cross-linking technique used by Juvederm Vollure prevents the filler from breaking down too rapidly, resulting in a longer-lasting filler than other types of hyaluronic acid fillers. 

What purposes does Juvederm Vollure serve?

With Juvederm Vollure XC, wrinkles caused by aging and volume losses, especially in the nasolabial folds, can be treated. Injecting this filler into the dermal layer of the skin is done to replace lost volume in smile lines and smooth deeper wrinkles and folds. Because of the combination of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids in Juvederm Vollure, it holds and attracts moisture well and lifts the skin from multiple areas of the face. As a result, Juvederm Vollure can also be used off-label for areas such as the perioral lines, lips, chin, jawline contouring, and temples.

If you embrace Dr. Schwarzburg’s less is more philosophy, your Juvederm Vollure XC injections will never look overdone. Dr. Schwarzburg injects cosmetic fillers into his patients in stages at his New York office to gradually assess the effect of volume increase on the face. Cosmetic results are ensured when this method is used. It is usually necessary for you to return to Dr. Schwarzburg’s Manhattan office two weeks after receiving cosmetic injections so you can see the best results.

Are there Differences between Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma XC, and Juvederm Volbella XC?

Allergan created Juvederm, an injectable filler that’s used to treat a number of areas of the face. Different gels in the collection are differentiated primarily by their thickness, which dictates which parts of the face and what kinds of lines or folds benefit from such a treatment. Among the five FDA-approved filler gels in the US, there are Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Voluma. Local anesthetics like lidocaine are used to minimize discomfort during injections.

Juvederm Ultra Plus contains only Hylacross technology, which is mainly a high molecular-weight hyaluronic acid. If you were to compare Juvederm Vollure to Volbella or Voluma, you could say that it can both fill in nasolabial folds as well as parentheses lines while maintaining natural facial expression. The Volbella XC is the thinnest of the Juvederm dermal fillers, and it is ideal for fine lines under the eyes, along the lips, around the mouth, and on the lips.

During your consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg, he will discuss your treatment and aesthetic goals with you so that you can choose the Juvederm product that will be best for you.

How does the Juvederm Vollure treatment work?

First, patients should consult Dr. Schwarzburg in his NYC clinic regarding Juvederm Vollure. The right treatment plan will be determined after he analyzes your facial features and needs. Medical photographs will be taken for the purpose of maintaining your medical records. A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment areas before the procedure. You should avoid taking blood thinners, vitamins, or fish oil one week before your cosmetic injections to reduce the risk of unnecessary bruising.

Dermal fillers are carefully injected into the facial area using a thin needle. The procedure should take approximately 30 minutes. After the injection, Dr. Schwarzburg will apply an ice pack to reduce swelling. Afterward, makeup can be applied and normal activities can be resumed. If the effects fade after 18 months, injections can be repeated.

Marionette lines run downward from the corners of our mouth and are among the deepest lines on our faces. The form of Juvederm Vollure allows for soft, natural movements while treating deep wrinkles. This makes it perfect for marionette lines. Patients can get the procedure repeated if the gel is broken down by the body within 18 months.

Can Juvederm Vollure last on your lips for a long time?

Juvederm Vollure’s malleability allows for a natural-looking lip enhancement. The product is used to produce stunning results in an off-label application by Dr. Schwarzburg. They may last anywhere from 9 – 19 months.

Does Juvederm work for tear troughs?

The skin under your eyes will sag as you age as the fat pads that keep our faces youthful begin to disappear. While Juvederm Vollure is not specifically designed to use under the eyes, the gel is quite effective in restoring volume and decreasing wrinkles along the tear trough and under the eyes. Juvederm Vollure maintains its effects longer than other Juvederm fillers due to its unique VYCROSS technology. 

Are there any side effects with Juvederm Vollure?

Some temporary side effects of Juvederm Vollure injections include bruising, swelling, and redness. 

Localized swelling, itchiness, discoloration, lumps, and redness are possible.

An ice pack is applied to minimize bruising and swelling. Additionally, it is not recommended to exercise after dermal fillers and to avoid saunas, hot tubs, or intense sun exposure for 48 hours. Immediately after Juvederm fillers injections, swelling and pigmentation can increase if heat and sunlight are exposed. Following Juvederm Vollure injections, you can resume your normal day-to-day activities immediately. 

Is Juvederm Vollure painful?

Bruising and pain are minimized with Dr. Schwarzburg’s cosmetic injections because the needles are very small. In addition, Dr. Schwarzburg has injected Juvederm multiple times, so he is an experienced injector.

Approximately 18 months after the filler is injected, when the body has finally broken it down, patients can return to Dr. Schwarzburg’s office for another round of treatment to maintain smoothness and fullness.

Would any fillers work well for marionette lines?

Each product in the collection has its merits. Juvederm Vollure is used to smooth marionette lines as well as the nasolabial folds, which run from your nose to the corners of your mouth. In treating wrinkles and folds of moderate to deep depth, Juvederm Vollure is helpful.

How much does Juvederm Vollure cost?

Juvederm Vollure will last longer than other hyaluronic acid fillers, so it will cost more than Juvederm Ultra Plus. Board-certified physician injections, like those given by Dr. Schwarzburg may be more expensive than injections done by a nurse at a spa or clinic. 

How do you decide which Juvederm injector to choose?

In his discreet and private New York City office, Dr. Schwarzburg, a leader in minimally invasive cosmetic medicine and skin care, has treated clients with Botox, Juvederm Voluma, and Juvederm Vollure. Dr. Schwarzburg is ranked among the top cosmetic dermatologists in NYC.
