We’re going to look at Vollure filler again today. But first let’s talk about wrinkles and lines on your face!
Do you look at your face and wonder where did the time go? When did I become my grandma? Do you see a resemblance to an old-fashioned marionette puppet animated with strings and split jaws?
Where did those lines come from that run between your mouth and chin? How did they get so deep? And when did the lower half of your face start sagging? Marionette lines are a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean that you have to like them.
Fact: The lower half of your face is more likely to wrinkle because the skin in that area is thinner.
And how about those thinking lines? You know the ones. The two vertical creases that pop up on your forehead around your nose when you crinkle your eyes. You may also know them as worry lines, parentheses, or the “elevens.” How did those get there? When did that happen?
Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are usually the deepest types of wrinkles that appear on the face. As you age, your body slows down collagen production. Collagen is responsible for keeping your skin firm and plump. Combine the loss of plump skin with gravity and dehydration, and you’ve got a recipe for big deep wrinkles.
Your Lifestyle Choices Determine Your Wrinkle Risk
Your risk for wrinkles increases with your habits and lifestyle choices. Do you spend long periods in the sun or on the tanning bed? Get ready for wrinkles. Are you constantly stressed out and worried? So many wrinkles. Do you eat a less-than-stellar diet? Wrinkles are ready to take over.
What to do? What to do?
Here’s what you don’t have to do.
If you have severe wrinkles and folds, you do not need to have surgery or a facelift. There are plenty of other non-invasive and minimally invasive options for smoothing out skin and decreasing folds. If you’re focused on nasolabial folds or marionette lines, then Juvéderm Vollure filler may be your knight in shining armor.
What is Juvéderm Vollure Filler?
If you read our article “Dermal fillers – what’s the choice?” then you already know that Juvéderm is the brand name for a collection of HA dermal fillers. Juvéderm Vollure is one of the five product lines in the Juvéderm family. It was specifically created to be injected into the mid-to-deep dermis (skin layer) to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.
The contents of Vollure injectable gel are similar to your own tissue, so there’s no need for a sensitivity test. It is formulated with the same Vycross technology that other Juvéderm products contain. This technology combines different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, making it the softest HA injectable on the market as well as one of the longest-lasting fillers available! Results are immediately noticeable and can last up to 18 months.
How is Vollure Different From Other Juvéderm Fillers?
Although all of the Juvéderm dermal fillers are formulated with the Vycross technology, each is customized to address different areas and needs.
For example, Juvéderm Voluma was made to add facial volume, which can plump up cheeks and reverse age-related volume loss in the cheek area.
Vollure is less firm than Voluma XC, which makes it the perfect choice for smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm Volbella takes an even subtler approach. Its soft, smooth gel is ideal for subtle lip volume and improvement in lip lines and the peri-oral area.
How Much Does Vollure Filler Cost?
The price depends on how many syringes will be required to get the results you want. Filler treatments can run from $600-$2000. If you find someone who offers deeply discounted fillers, stay away! Counterfeit and diluted fillers do exist, and they won’t give you the results you’re looking for and could even be harmful.
If you’re concerned about whether or not you’re getting a quality product, ask to look at the box to see if the safety seal is intact.
The Beauty of Juvéderm Vollure
You may be wary of getting fillers. After all, you’ve seen pictures of women who have that “frozen look” on their face that just screams Botox and dermal fillers. The beauty of Vollure is that it’s subtle. Vollure injectable gel adds a healthy amount of volume to areas where there used to be natural fat. So you don’t have to worry about it stretching out your skin too much.
If, for some reason, you’re unhappy with the results, your provider can make adjustments. Depending on the circumstances, they may inject additional dermal filler to create balance or dissolve the Vollure if appropriate.
This is your face we’re talking about…
Pay close attention. The point of dermal fillers is not to make you look in the mirror and wonder who is staring back. The best results are subtle. So that when your friends, colleagues, and loved ones see you they say, “Hey, you look great today!” Not “Hey, what happened to your face?”
The key to getting beautiful results is using the right provider. Don’t just walk into any salon or clinic. Do your research first. Friends are always a great resource, but they aren’t always willing to share what they’ve had done.
It’s also not unusual for patients to decline to have their before and after photos published on websites – but that doesn’t mean the provider doesn’t have before and after photos that they can show you in person. Make sure to ask at your consultation.
Call it a lunch date with a secret admirer.
Are you worried about what people will think? Don’t! Did you know that a dermal filler appointment only takes about 30 minutes? That means you can go out for a “lunch date” and come back to work or home with noticeable (but not too noticeable) results that can last anywhere from four months to 18 months!
