What Is Juvederm Vollure?
Juvederm Vollure is a cosmetic hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and folds that form in the lower face. Because the development of dermal fillers is an evolving process, manufacturers continue to discover ways to manipulate these products to accommodate patients in new ways. To make Juvederm Vollure, Allergan uses Vycross technology. The technology involves combining high and low molecular weight for better cross-linking of the substance’s hyaluronic chains.Many of the market’s dermal fillers feature hyaluronic acid, a replenishing substance that fills in facial wrinkles caused by age. An even better feature of the substance is that it is able to hold moisture for your skin without giving it an excessive amount of water. If your skin gets too much water, the added moisture can cause it to break down, making hyaluronic acid a particularly beneficial substance. Even better, hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally occurs in the human body.
Juvederm Vollure is used to:
- Treat marionette lines, the lines that develop between the corners of your mouth as well as along your jawline and chin
- Add volume to nasolabial folds, the wrinkles that form from the corners of your mouth to the corners of your nose
- Fill in wrinkles and lines that are considered mild to moderate in terms of severity
- Refresh the lower section of your face
