Static wrinkling is generally considered to be among the more advanced signs of facial aging. Unlike dynamic wrinkles, which are only apparent when the expressive facial muscles are in use, static wrinkles remain visible all of the time. These are creases and folds that develop as the natural integrity of the skin starts to break down and facial volume is lost. They occur at a time when the body is producing less collagen and when the skin’s hyaluronic acid stores have started to wane. Fortunately, Juvederm Vollure® has been FDA-approved for the treatment of volume loss along the nasolabial folds. Injections of this cutting-edge material are an incredibly effective way to fill in deep facial creases for a significantly more youthful-appearance overall.
How Juvederm Vollure® Treats Static Wrinkling
Like all other formulas from the trusted Juvederm® brand, Juvederm Vollure® is primarily comprised of a naturally-occurring substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Not only does this make it easy for the body to both accept and synthesize the injections, but it also greatly diminishes the likelihood of adverse reactions. That’s because our provider will be rejuvenating your skin’s structure with a substance that’s already naturally present in your skin.
After Juvederm Vollure® is injected, the HA it contains will immediately begin binding to skin cells throughout the treatment area. Once it does, this HA will start attracting and collecting nearby water molecules to hydrate and restore the dermis to its original youthful condition. This activity manifests at the surface of the skin as a noticeable plumping effect so that deep creases along the nasolabial folds are filled in.
Juvederm® formulas contain their own, built-in anesthesia in the form of lidocaine. This limits discomfort both during and after the treatment session. The treatments are performed in the comfort of our office with virtually no downtime required. While you may be able to see an immediate decrease in the appearance of static wrinkling at the nasolabial folds, you can expect to gain additional volume in this area as more water molecules are retained within the treatment zone over the following days.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Since Juvederm® formulas are easily recognized and synthesized by the body, most Juvederm® treatments last between six and nine months. Juvederm Vollure®, however, uses a proprietary Vycross technology that makes it a next-generation dermal filler due to increased effectiveness and durability. This technology also makes Juvederm Vollure® one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market. As such, those who receive this procedure for reducing the appearance of static wrinkling at the nasolabial folds can expect the resulting cosmetic improvements to last up to 18 months!
