The Juvederm family of products features dermal fillers tailored to most every need, and if you want to treat deep facial folds and creases non-surgically, Juvederm Vollure may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Vollure is a long-lasting injectable cosmetic treatment for harsh facial wrinkles. Injectable soft-tissue fillers are some of the most common aesthetic procedures and are typically administered with very fine needles. These minimally invasive procedures leave patients with great results and require no downtime.
What Can Vollure Do for You?
Vollure can correct deep lines, wrinkles, creases, and indentations on the face, including harsh nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, and marionette lines. This hyaluronic-acid based dermal filler is designed to target areas around the mouth and nose without restricting any facial movement.
Why Choose Hyaluronic-Acid-Based Fillers?
Hyaluronic acid, a sugar naturally found in the human body, depletes as we age. This substance has multiple uses in the cosmetic field, as well as medically. Promoting healthier skin, maintaining bone strength, reducing joint pain, and even helping wound recovery are just a few ways hyaluronic acid helps the body.
When injected beneath the skin, hyaluronic acid helps protect and hydrate the skin, leaving it plump, smooth, and refreshed. It also has been shown to promote the natural production of collagen that we also lose as we age.
The Treatment Process
Prior to your Juvederm Vollure procedure, you’ll have a consultation with a skincare expert. You’ll receive pre-treatment care instructions and recommendations to best reduce your chances of swelling and bruising after injections. You will have a discussion regarding your skin concerns and your medical history, including any past procedures you have received.
The Vollure injections themselves will take roughly 15 minutes, depending on the areas you’re treating and the number of injections you’re receiving. The dermal filler is administered beneath layers of the skin using a very small needle.
The injections will contain a small amount of lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Lidocaine helps numb the areas to any pain or discomfort for the duration of the treatment session. If your injection tolerance is low, you can ask for topical numbing cream to be applied beforehand.
After Your Vollure Treatment
As with most injectable cosmetic treatments, there is no downtime or recovery time needed following a Vollure treatment session. You can essentially stop in on a lunch break and resume your workday as planned immediately after.
Bruising, swelling, and redness near the injection site are common and will subside on their own in a matter of hours or days at the most. Avoid massaging the area, exercising, and heat/sun exposure for up to 24 hours to reduce the duration of these side effects.
Results vary from person to person and are dependent on the amount of filler received, as well as the patient’s metabolism. Most people see immediate results that last anywhere from 18 months to two years. In order to maintain results, repeat treatments will be needed over time.

The price of Voluma is determined based on factors like the area being treated and the number of injections needed. Insurance does not cover elective procedures.
