At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, each Juvederm Vollure XC session will be performed in a private treatment room, for ultimate comfort and confidentiality. The procedure normally takes less than 30 minutes, from start to finish. Vollure is injected directly under the skin, plumping wrinkles, easing fine lines, and restoring facial contours to meet each patient’s desired aesthetic results. The treatment is not considered painful, as Juvederm Vollure XC is premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic. For additional comfort, however, Dr. Vitenas can also add a topical numbing cream to the treatment plan.
No downtime is necessary after a Juvederm Vollure XC session. Most patients are ready to return to work or school right after their appointment. While the treatment area may be mildly swollen, red, and tender for several days, these side-effects soon resolve. Bruising is not uncommon but will also fade quickly. More serious complications, like infection or nerve damage, are rare with Vollure.
The plumping results from Juvederm Vollure XC can be seen right away. However, as any residual swelling and discoloration resolves, the benefits will continue to improve. Vollure’s HA will encourage the body’s natural production of collagen, as well. In five to seven days, the full benefits of the injections can be seen. As the results start to fade, Juvederm Vollure XC can safely be reapplied to maintain the youthful benefits of treatment.
