JUVÉDERM® Vollure is a smooth consistency gel capable of restoring volume to skin and smoothing away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps add volume and hydration.
JUVÉDERM is a safe, effective, non-surgical option for those that want to diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is non-animal dermal filler of smooth consistency that allows for easy injection and instantly natural results.
The injection itself usually takes approximately 15 minutes.
Although anesthesia is not required, your doctor may use a topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area. JUVÉDERM Vollure will be injected under your skin to add volume or fill wrinkles and folds. After the injection, your doctor may gently massage the treated areas.
There is minimal recovery time with JUVÉDERM. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or bruising at the treatment sites.
Some temporary symptoms, such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps may occur but usually clear up on their own within a week. Any swelling at the injection site can be minimized with an ice pack for a brief period.
Most patients see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas and only need one treatment to achieve optimal results. Results may vary and touch up treatments may be required to maintain results, but JUVÉDERM Vollure can smooth lines and wrinkles for up to 18 months, depending on the area being treated.

Juvéderm Voluma® XC
As you age, your cheeks can loose volume, thereby causing the skin to sag and the face to appear older. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel that can instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss. It is an excellent non-surgical solution to achieve natural-looking results lasting up to two years. Correctly administered by a board certified plastic surgeon, it can instantly enhance contour and creates a subtle lift to help restore a more youthful profile.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is strategically injected under the skin using a very fine needle. To reduce the discomfort during the procedure, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC contains an anesthetic called lidocaine. It instantly adds just enough volume to gently lift the cheek area.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is ideal for adults over the age of 21 with age-related volume loss in the cheeks and temple areas.
The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the site of the injections, such as tenderness, bruising, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, redness and itching. Be sure to tell Dr. Armijo if you are using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen or other blood thinners, as that may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection sites. Minimize strenuous exercise and exposure to sun or heat within the first 24 hours following treatment.
