Part of the Juvederm or hyaluronic acid filler family, Juvederm Vollure Carlsbad helps soften moderate to dramatic parentheses or smile lines. Juvederm Vollure is best in areas around the nose and mouth where wrinkles and fine lines concentrate, such as marionette lines running down from the mouth’s corners to the chin. As with any Juvederm filler, the choice of product depends on where you want an injection and the severity of lines. If you’re looking for a general volume increase that lasts a long time (up to 18 months), Juvederm Vollure is apt to do the job.
Juvederm developed multiple fillers in order to give the consumer greater choice in how their cosmetic enhancement can turn out. While all Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, the density is different, allowing for varied distribution when injected inside the tissue. In the case of the newest addition to the Juvederm line, Vollure’s aim is to soften the facial appearance for a smoother look overall. Vollure works best in parentheses lines or those deeper crevices, while Voluma is great in the cheeks and Ultra and Volbella help plump/smooth out the lips.
We can inject this product into the deep folds that start near your nose down to the corners of the mouth, which are called nasolabial folds. When you correct the nasolabial folds, your appearance will look less harsh and have more of a gentle, youthful touch. It’s quite amazing how the Vollure product can smooth out seemingly fixed lines.
If you’re interested in this filler, you must be 22 years of age in order to receive it. Injection into patients under 22 years has not been studied, not to deem it unsafe. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, undergoing other cosmetic treatments regularly (such as our other laser facial treatments) or on blood thinners, tell us. We must evaluate your overall health history in order to read how your body might respond to a hyaluronic acid injection, let alone your skin. We give a very emphatic ‘no’ if you are allergic to lidocaine or the Gram-positive bacterial proteins found in Juvederm Vollure. If you know of your allergies, check with us to learn more about the ingredients inside the product.
Side effects of dermal fillers are very minor, with complications relatively uncommon. Juvederm Vollure Carlsbad side effects may last up to fourteen days or less. With a skilled injector who knows what product to use, how much product and where it goes, you can trust that these will be kept to a minimum. Side effects may include, but are not limited to, redness, swelling, uneven bumps under the skin, bruising, discoloration, tenderness and rarely, injection into a blood vessel. What happens in the latter case of unintended injection are more serious effects, such as vision problems, stroke, scabs or scarring. Don’t worry; you can vet us thoroughly during your consultation to ease your concerns about our experienced injectors, who know how to handle such a situation if it arises.
Yes! In fact, we recommend you get a combination of our dermal fillers in order to really enhance your appearance. If you only get Vollure to correct nasolabial folds or Volbella to plump lips, you won’t look off balance, however. But you certainly can achieve beautiful results when you combine a series of dermal fillers together. Some people say a combination of dermal fillers produces a subtle, natural facelift!
If you’re baffled why Juvederm Vollure Carlsbad has staying power, it has to do with the fact that the hyaluronic acid particles are large in size and thus aren’t easily expelled from the skin. Plus, the skin will incorporate the particles as part of their dermal matrixing. Without the ability for particles to remain in place, you could expect a drooping look (in itself a cosmetic problem people want to treat) or very temporary results. The filler will fade over time, but the injectable can create noticeable yet subtle improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and folds for a solid year to a year and a half.*
Parentheses lines are static wrinkles that stay in place when your face is at rest. They form over time due to a lack of collagen and hyaluronic acid, two fundamental building blocks of the skin. While some wrinkles are dynamic in the sense that continual facial movement prompts their appearance (and their fading when face becomes relaxed), parentheses lines are part of the aging process in that most people eventually get them. Dynamic wrinkles require a different intervention, namely of the underlying muscle contracting in the first place. Botox and Xeomin are great interventions for such wrinkle types, since they effectively paralyze the muscle underneath the skin (on a shorter timeframe, meaning injections as close as three months together are key to sustain results).
Parentheses lines and static wrinkles more generally are a physical marker of age. If you want to age gracefully, you might consider getting Juvederm Vollure XC or just Juvederm XC to address these static wrinkles.
At your consultation, you can receive a price estimate based on your skin’s current condition. We usually recommend anywhere from one to two syringes to adequately fill in the deep crevices such as nasolabial folds. For a realistic estimate of your treatment requirements, you should ask us how much you might pay. We offer specials to mitigate such expenses.
Juvederm Vollure Carlsbad contains a blend of hyaluronic acid that suits it specifically to treat the larger laugh lines. It contains VYCROSS technology which allows the product to dispense evenly yet stay together, a blend of the differently sized particles to create stronger bonds. It is more thin than Voluma (designed for cheeks) but much thicker than Volbella (for the lips).
