Juvederm is one of the most prominent dermal filler brands on the market. Millions of people trust Allergan to provide products that can help remove signs of aging and bring back a more youthful look to their faces — sometimes even multiple times a year.
One of the advantages that the Juvederm line of dermal fillers has is that it is able to customize its formula to better suit certain areas throughout the face and body. Vollure is specifically designed to eliminate a prevalent condition known as nasolabial folds, the lines that form on the sides of the mouth between the nose and lips.
What Is Vollure?
Like all Juvederm products, Vollure is hyaluronic acid dermal filler. While this substance might sound intimidating, it is actually produced naturally by the body. It has among the highest length of efficacy (18 months) and can also be used to treat parenthesis lines that extend beneath the lips as well.
Each injection of Vollure also includes a small amount of lidocaine to help with potential discomfort. When you couple all this together, plus the application of a cold compress before the injection, you get a safe, effective and virtually painless treatment that excels at softening deep lines around the mouth.
Why Do We Need Vollure?
As our bodies go through the very natural aging process, a few things start to change. The most impactful is that we begin to lose the amount of protein production we enjoyed in our youth. Essentials like collagen and elastin are simply not as abundant, and, to make matters worse, the volume of our face also begins to falter.
This two-punch attack on our complexions means, for some, rapid deterioration of our skin integrity, ultimately leading to complexion concerns like nasolabial folds and marionette lines below the corners of our mouth. Unfortunately, there is not a completely effective way to ward off these concerns completely. Even the most diligent skin-care enthusiasts will experience degrees of these conditions at some point.
Vollure and other Juvederm products offer a unique method of helping to alleviate these concerns without the need for surgery or invasive procedures. In short, we need Vollure because it is reliable and effective.
Am I a Candidate for Vollure?
As an injectable filler, Vollure is an option for most people regardless of skin tone or texture, making it much better than some laser options that are not well suited for all skin types. Ultimately, though, your candidacy will depend on whether nasolabial folds are a significant part of your concerns. If so, you are probably good to go.
Keep in mind that every cosmetic treatment, including surgery, has its limitations — Vollure is no different. Fillers, like Vollure, can also be used after face tightening procedures to augment surgical results

How Should I Prepare for Vollure?
Other than avoiding potentially blood-thinning products such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, and fish oil products for several days beforehand, there are no extensive preparations you need to make ahead of treatment. You will be able to arrive with no fuss at our facility and leave on your own as soon as the procedure is completed. We do recommend avoiding vigorous physical activity immediately after your treatment to help prevent bruising or discomfort.
What Should I Expect from a Vollure Procedure?
Vollure injections are straightforward, but you should only trust experienced injectors. When you come back to the procedure areas, your face will be cleaned to help avoid the small chance of infection. Then, the injection will be made into the appropriate targeted areas of the face that will best help correct your concerns. After the injections are completed, we will have you rest with a cold compress across the area for a short while and your face will be cleaned once again.
Is Vollure Painful?
Here is some great news: no! You may experience some discomfort from the injections, but the solution used has a pain reliever built into the formula to help keep that to a minimum. Most patients say they only experience minor tenderness, and virtually everyone can get through them without the need for even over-the-counter medications.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Vollure?
Vollure can last up to 18 months for most patients. This will depend highly on the amount of correction that you need and how your body responds to the compound. Most individuals find that repeating the procedure before the effect of treatment has completely gone away helps one maintain a fresh, more youthful appearance and our office monitors your results and will help you follow a treatment plan that will keep your results optimal.
Can I Combine Vollure with Other Procedures?
Dr. Terrasse does not recommend having laser treatment to the same area as a filler injection at the same appointment, but since Vollure is minimally invasive, it can be combined with most of our other services with no additional risk. Let us know all of the different concerns you are looking to address, no matter how small, and we will help you figure out the best plan to move forward in that process.
