WHAT IS JUVÉDERM ULTRA PLUS XC & VOLLURE XC?

Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and Juvéderm Vollure XC are both injectable gels that are used for the correction of wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth—these lines are also known as nasolabial folds. As with all of Juvéderm’s products, Ultra Plus XC and Vollure XC are of the highest quality wrinkle-improvement medications that work to reduce lines and wrinkles by adding volume and fullness to your skin. 

At this point you may be wondering what the difference between Ultra Plus XC and Vollure XC is, and the answer is a relatively simple one: it is easiest to think of Ultra Plus XC as more of a “smoother” and Vollure XC as a “volume adding” medicine. Determining which product to use is a decision best made by your doctor, as he can properly assess which medication will better suit the level of your condition, and which is more likely to help you see the results that you want.

WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

As is the case with nearly all cosmetic injectable medicines, Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and Vollure XC are conducted on an outpatient basis and do not require formal anesthesia or surgery. Your doctor may choose to use some topical medication to numb the injection site, just to ensure that you are comfortable during the procedure. 

Once everything is in place, the procedure itself will be short—typically no more than thirty minutes—and will consist of a number of injections in the area that you are treating, all of which will be performed by your doctor or certified cosmetic nurse. The amount of medication, as well as the number of injections, will be determined by your doctor and based upon the results that you are seeking and what will best suit your skin, as your goals and intentions for the treatment plan will always be the main focus. 

 
 
 

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?

The recovery period for the procedure is relatively short, with side effects that are typically very mild and short-lived. Patient symptoms and side effects are almost always resolved within just a few days, and at most a week. Since the procedure is not a formal surgery, you will be free to return home and back to your daily activities the very same day that you receive the injections, but we do recommend a 24 hour break from physical exercise.
