The number of people having fillers injected to treat deeper lines on their faces continues to grow steadily. In fact, a survey in 2015 showed that 6 million Americans were regularly using dermal fillers, which was 40% more than in 2010.
Adding to that demand is a new filler just recently approved by the FDA called Juvederm Vollure XC. Juvederm Vollure XC is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler to correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles for up to 18 months.
Allergan, the company that produces Botox as well as all the variations of Juvederm fillers, used a special technology known as Vycross to hold the filler together into a cohesive gel. This technology keeps the filler intact within the skin for longer periods of time.
Vycross essentially produces a mixture that can be molded to effectively lift the sunken skin which forms the basis of facial lines. The unique formulation of Juvederm Vollure XC is firm enough to lift up even the deepest lines on the face, while still being soft enough to allow the face to move naturally with facial expression.
In addition, Vollure XC lasts longer than other filler alternatives. Although slightly more expensive upfront, Vollure XC will actually be a better value for the price, as it will last longer and reduce the need for repeat injections.
Another significant advantage of Vollure XC is high patient satisfaction in its initial studies. It has been available in Europe since 2013, and has been widely accepted there as a groundbreaking product for deep facial lines.
In fact, 96% of patients treated with Juvederm Vollure XC reported improvements in their nasolabial folds (i.e. the line from the corner of nose to the corner of mouth, also known as “parentheses lines”). Even better, 82% of the patients surveyed reported that they were very satisfied with this filler’s results.
Because Allergan continues to recognize Maine Laser Skin Care as one of the busiest aesthetic practices in the state of Maine, I am one of the first doctors in the state to offer Juvederm Vollure XC. This new product will certainly find a niche for those with the deepest facial lines when they want correction and for those who the longest lasting treatment.
