Get Long-Lasting Wrinkle-Smoothing Results at Our New York & Albany Surgical Centers
Allergan, maker of the popular and trusted family of Juvederm® fillers, introduced a new member of its “next generation” in 2017: Vollure™ XC. New York-area women and men choose the injectable at the Williams Center to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose for up to 18 months*—a duration far longer than what is available from similar products on the market.
Specifically, Vollure™ XC is particularly suited as a non-surgical solution for addressing moderate to severe nasolabial folds, which take the form of creases extending from the nose to the lips.
Who May Be an Appropriate Candidate for Vollure™ XC?
Healthy men and women older than 21 years old who want to treat their facial creases without surgery are good candidates for Vollure™ XC. They should also have a realistic expectation of what the dermal filler can and can’t do. Vollure™ XC may reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, for instance, but not make them disappear completely.
What Is Vollure™ XC?
Like all fillers in the Juvderm® line, Vollure™ XC is a gel composed of a lab-made version of the naturally occurring carbohydrate known as hyaluronic acid—a chemical known for its ability to bind to water. The proprietary process Allergan uses to create the formula results in a stable, thick injectable that holds moisture and restores volume to specific areas in the skin. The XC in its name indicates that the gel also contains the anesthetic lidocaine, which is included to make the injection process more comfortable.
What Does a Vollure™ XC Session Entail?
After an initial consultation to establish Vollure™ XC as the best option for treating your facial lines, your injector will make a series of carefully placed injections in the target area, introducing a small amount of the filler with each one. While the meticulous process is driven by precision, it can still be completed in about 15 minutes. The added volume will be visible right away, though there may be a small amount of swelling and redness that should fade in the days after a session. Patients can typically return to their daily activities with no time taken for recovery or recuperation.
As noted above, results can last for up to 18 months under ideal conditions. Patients can return for maintenance treatments to continue their look of smoothed-out nasolabial folds.
Dermal Fillers Beyond Vollure™ XC in New York
In addition to Vollure™ XC, the Williams Center for Plastic Surgery also offers Juvederm Ultra® and Ultra Plus, which are used to enhance the lip and a variety of other wrinkles on the face. Allergan’s Voluma® XC adds volume to areas in the cheeks that have flattened due to collagen loss, leading to hollows and sagging.
