The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved Juvéderm Vollure XC for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for adults over the age of 21. This new filler uses special technology, known as Vycross, to hold the hyaluronic acid together into a cohesive gel, keeping it intact after it is injected into the skin. The mixture of high and low hyaluronic acid creates a more connected gel, creating a firm but natural appearance to the treated areas. This formula not only produces minimal swelling, but lasts longer than other products. In fact, Juvéderm Vollure XC lasts up to 18 months from the initial or touch-up injection – that’s one year longer than other fillers on the market, making it a more affordable, long-term treatment option.

Common Side Effects
In the clinical study, the most common side effects seen were temporary injection site responses such as swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness lumps or bumps, redness, pain, discoloration, and itching. These side effects generally dissipate within a week.
If you have a history of multiple severe allergies or anaphylaxis, or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the Gram-positive bacterial proteins in Juvéderm Vollure XC, you should not use this product.
