What Is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is a cosmetic hyaluronic acid dermal filler designed to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and folds that form in the lower face. Because the development of dermal fillers is an evolving process, manufacturers continue to discover ways to manipulate these products to accommodate patients in new ways.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC for laugh lines and marionette lines is a new hyaluronic Gel filler in the Juvederm family. Clinical tests showed up to 18 months longevity.
Improved fillers – improved results
As fillers improve, you get to expect a longer correction and smoother correction. The patented VYCROSS™ technology blends different molecule weights to achieve a particularly smooth result. VYCROSS™ cross-linking makes the fillers more malleable and easier to inject, further improving the outcome.
The fact that JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC lasts so long makes it very appealing to those who want to “fill it and forget it”. Clinical study results of 18 months are based on optimal correction. Results may vary.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC for moderate to severe lines in the mid face:
- Laugh Lines (Parentheses lines)
- Marionette Lines
- Horizontal Chin Lines
Parentheses lines are static lines that appear around your nose and mouth when your face is at rest. This happens over time as your skin loses some of the building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen) that give the skin its structure.
How is JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC different from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC maintains correction and also allows easy movement in the treated area with a molecule weight mix specific for this area. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is weighted a little heavier than JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC and is not quite as elastic in nature. Volume replacement in the cheek is not subject to the same repeated movements in the mouth area, so a filler that’s a little stiffer, like JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, works best for cheek augmentation.
Understanding filler densities
Generally, you can expect the denser fillers to be used in areas that require deeper levels of product injection and thinner fillers to be used in areas that are frequently mobile.
The four JUVÉDERM® formulas, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC (lines and folds), JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC (lips and lip lines), JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injectable (mid face moderate to severe lines) and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC (cheeks) all are designed to give you the best results in the areas they have been developed for. Ex: A patient with deflated cheeks, deep lines around the mouth and loss of lip volume would likely use JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC.
Potential side effects
Any filler treatment will cause some initial swelling or redness. Usually, any side effects subside in a matter of days. Some bruising can occur, but Juvederm Vollure contains lidocaine for injection comfort.

How Long Do the Results of a JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Treatment Last?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is the longest-lasting dermal filler for the treatment of nasolabial folds. When JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC was tested, researchers found that the product can last for as long as 18 months, making it one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers on the market. A clinical trial testing the inject-able found that 59 percent of those who participated saw an improvement in the lines around their mouths for up to that year-and-a-half point. In addition, 82 percent of participants reported that they were happy with their results at the 6-month mark while 68 percent of them were satisfied with the treatment at 8 months.
To make JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, Allergan uses Vycross technology. The technology involves combining high and low molecular weight for better cross-linking of the substance’s hyaluronic chains. Many of the market’s dermal fillers feature hyaluronic acid, a replenishing substance that fills in facial wrinkles caused by age. An even better feature of the substance is that it is able to hold moisture for your skin without giving it an excessive amount of water. If your skin gets too much water, the added moisture can cause it to break down, making hyaluronic acid a particularly beneficial substance. Even better, hyaluronic acid is a sugar that naturally occurs in the human body.

JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC FAQ
How Long Does a JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Treatment Take?
Treatment sessions generally take about 15 minutes to complete, not including your consultation. As with all dermal filler treatments, you may need several sessions to get the desired results. This may depend on the area that you’re having treated and how your body reacts to the substance. Over time, your body will absorb the fillers. When this happens, your skin returns to its regular state. Because of this, dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments that require maintenance and follow-up treatments. To ensure that the treatment provides the best possible results, you will be instructed to avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours following your treatment. Also, it’s important to stay out of the sun and avoid drinking alcohol before and after your treatment as doing so can increase your chances of bruising and may worsen swelling. If you’re using a medicine that can increase bleeding, be sure to share this information with Dr. Lindahl. This may include medications like ibuprofen, blood thinners or aspirin.
Do JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Injections Hurt? Will I Need Anesthesia?
Most patients report little-to-no discomfort during a dermal filler treatment, as each syringe also contains the local anesthetic, lidocaine. To ensure comfort, we provide you with ice to the area and offer a topical anesthetic.
How Does JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Work?
Because JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is formulated to feature a blend of gel firmness and low levels of cohesiveness, it gives cosmetic specialists access to an adaptable formula designed to add subtle volume to your face. The product also provides a slight adjustment of moderate or severe facial lines and folds.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is made from hyaluronic acid, so the cosmetic product is able to replenish moisture within the skin. Young skin looks the way that it does because of its ability to hold onto water and retain the proper amount of moisture. As you age, your skin becomes unable to preserve moisture as it did when you were younger, causing a noticeable loss of firmness and pliability in addition to volume and suppleness.
Above any other treatment, hyaluronic acid is able to enhance your skin’s moisture content while revitalizing the outer layers of your skin. This makes it feel and appear softer and smoother while giving you a radiant glow. An injection of a product made from hyaluronic acid almost immediately improves the look of wrinkles and fine lines.
Am I a Candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC?
If you’re 21 or older, have unwanted wrinkles and folds in the lower half of your face, and are in relatively good health, you are likely a candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC and similar dermal fillers. However, all patients require a personal consultation with our aesthetic injection specialists. We will examine your skin, discuss your concerns and desired results, and study your medical history to determine if you’re a good candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC. As fillers are a prescription medication, a full, accurate health history and list of medications and supplements is required before treatment. Patients with a history of reactions to injectables, are allergic to lidocaine, or have a history of severe allergies should not use JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC.
What Side Effects Can I Expect After a JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Treatment?
To give people an idea of possible side effects after JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injections, the clinical study also recorded subjects’ reactions. To track the side effects, the study’s participants were asked to keep a 30-day journal. If a side effect continued to impact a subject for longer than 30 days, the study considered it an adverse event.
According to the study, most of the side effects were minimal and easy for the participants to manage. In fact, it found that the majority of the participants’ side effects were gone without interference within one week. Most of the study’s participants experienced at least one mild, short-term side effect from the treatment. The most common ones were skin firmness, tenderness to the touch and some mild swelling. Minor redness, bruising and itching were other common side effects of the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC treatment.
More serious side-effects are rare and are most often prevented by seeing a reputable provider with experience administering dermal fillers.
How Much Does JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC Cost? Is it an Affordable Treatment Option?
