When it comes to lines and wrinkles on the face, there is a host of solutions to choose from. Surgery is an option that is becoming less desirable. Consumers want the closest thing to a non-invasive procedure as possible. Dermal fillers are another option that works very well. A new one has just been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s called Juvederm® Vollure.
A Unique Dermal Filler
Juvederm® Vollure has undergone extensive testing and clinical trials in order to be approved by the FDA as a dermal filler. It was exciting news for many women and men when it finally passed the clinical trials. Why all the excitement? It’s because Juvederm® Vollure can remove moderate to severe wrinkles for up to 18 months in males and females over a certain age.
When you compare this length of time with how long other dermal fillers last, it’s clear why there is so much excitement about its approval by the FDA. The results of a Juvederm® Vollure treatment outlast the length of time other dermal fillers last by up to six months, with other dermal fillers only lasting about a year and sometimes less than a year.
So, what makes Juvederm® Vollure so unique? It’s because it’s the first dermal filler ever to be manufactured with hyaluronic acid as its base ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is a type of molecule that is naturally present in human skin. It moisturizes skin so well because it has a way of binding itself with water and keeping the skin smooth and supple. It is naturally found in the dermis of the skin.
As we age, less of this important substance is produced by the human body and passed into the skin. This begins to happen by the time we reach our mid-twenties and is well under way by the time we are in our thirties. The lack of it can lead to early wrinkles, fine lines, deep lines and sagging skin at a premature time in our lives.
The Juvederm® Vollure Treatment
We first consult with the client in order to determine exactly what steps need to be taken during the procedure. During the actual treatment session, the product is skillfully injected into the preselected areas. Juvederm® Vollure actually attracts water to these treated areas of the face and the wrinkles are filled this way. The gel-like consistency of this dermal filler also adds volume.
