An inevitable fact of growing older is the facial changes that come with the aging process. If you are experiencing nasolabial folds, you may want to address the problem before it becomes more noticeable. Nasolabial folds are the folds and creases that appear on each side of the nose and mouth. Wrinkles and nasolabial folds can make you appear tired when you are actually active and energetic. For those who are unhappy with their wrinkles and lines, Juvederm Vollure™ XC can provide an effective solution.
Juvederm Vollure™ XC is a recently FDA-approved product for the treatment of moderate to severe nasolabial folds and wrinkles. Its active ingredient is called hyaluronic acid, a very important substance when it comes to plumping and hydrating your skin.
Importance of Hyaluronic Acid
The reason hyaluronic acid is so important to skin health and youthful is the fact that it possesses the unique property of attracting and binding a tremendous amount of water molecules that help keep your skin moist and supple. Hyaluronic acid helps stave off folds and wrinkles by plumping your skin.
As you get older, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, which is one of the main culprits behind premature skin aging. A face with depleted hyaluronic acid grows thinner and dryer. Fine lines and wrinkles begin appearing, along with nasolabial folds along the corners of the mouth and either side of the nose.
Juvederm Vollure™ XC
In 2017, Juvederm Vollure™ XC became the only hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment to be approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and skin folds lasting up to 18 months. This makes it a preferred product to others that only last up to one year.
Juvederm Vollure™ XC was approved following extensive clinical trials that found that 59 percent of patients minimized their nasolabial folds with results lasting up to 18 months. Over 80 percent of the subjects reporting being satisfied with their treatment after six months, while 68 percent said so at the 18-month marker.
Patients are often excited to observe that their results from Juvederm Vollure™ XC treatments are immediately noticeable. You can expect to see a rapid diminishing of your wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Your results should last up to 18 months.
After 18 months, you will need to have additional treatments if you want to keep your results. This is because the product will be gradually broken down and absorbed by your body.
