Lines and wrinkles are inevitable. As the skin starts to lose its youthful elasticity, moderate to severe creases form. After the age of 30, the body’s natural stores of fat become significantly depleted, giving way to features that look sharp and hollow. Further adding to these changes can be years of sun damage, weight fluctuations, and smoking, as well as genetic disposition. While traditional dermal fillers often make an excellent option for men and women looking to improve these lines and wrinkles, the results are temporary, generally lasting from three to nine months.
Today, there is a new generation of soft tissue fillers coming on the aesthetic market, bringing patients innovative options in long-lasting wrinkle reduction. For those seeking to smooth moderate facial lines and restore facial volume for up to 18 months, without surgery, Dr. Jerome Lamb and the professionals at Healthy Looks Skin Care and Laser Spa now offer Juvederm Vollure XC.
Juvederm Vollure XC
From the Juvederm family of cutting-edge dermal fillers comes Vollure XC. Made from an advanced formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA), and created using Juvederm’s patented Vycross technology, Vollure brings patients long-lasting results. With a thick, creamy-smooth consistency, Vollure XC has the power to plump moderate severe facial creases, such as the nasolabial folds, running from the nose to the edge of the mouth. The unique filler can also replace lost facial volume, contouring the cheeks and jawlines for a younger appearance. The natural-looking results from Juvederm Vollure XC, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are both safe and effective, lasting from 15-18 months.
Juvederm Vollure XC:
- Smooths moderate to severe wrinkles and facial lines
- Plumps nasolabial folds
- Restores lost facial volume
- Enhances the cheeks and jawline

The Ideal Candidate for Vollure XC
Vollure XC can benefit almost anyone struggling with moderate to severe wrinkles that accompany the aging process. An ideal candidate will be over the age of 21, in generally good health, understand the dermal filler treatment, and hold reasonable expectations for the results. Vollure is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Juvederm Vollure XC. Patients with a known allergy to lidocaine should not be treated with Vollure. Those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an active skin infection may be encouraged to postpone their treatment.

Treatment with Vollure XC
At Healthy Looks Skin Care and Laser Spa, all noninvasive treatments are performed in a private exam room. Each Juvederm Vollure XC session will take less than 30 minutes. Once the target area has been determined, the provider will place Vollure XC directly under the skin. To ensure patient comfort, Vollure XC is premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Dr.Lamb can provide an additional numbing cream or local anesthetic, as needed. Vollure requires no downtime, so patients are be right back to their normal routine.
Results from Vollure XC
Patients are free to return to their normal schedule, including work and exercise, immediately after treatment with Juvederm Vollure XC. While the treatment area may be mildly red or swollen, these are generally mild and quickly resolve. Bruising is also common.
The results from Vollure can be seen right away. Over the following week, as any swelling resolves, the wrinkle reducing benefits will continue to improve. Vollure’s combined high and low levels of HA rejuvenate the body’s production of collagen, meaning long-lasting benefits. Depending on the individual patient, the treatment area, and extent of correction, benefits of Vollure can last from 15 to 18 months. Once the results have start to fade, a maintenance treatment can extend the benefits.
Juvederm Vollure XC is FDA-approved as a safe and effective treatment for moderate to severe facial creases and volume loss. The side-effects of Vollure are mild and the chance for serious complications is small. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there is a minor chance for infection, nerve damage, facial asymmetry, and scarring. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Lamb will discuss the potential for complications with Juvederm Vollure XC.
