JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC
The original Juvederm® filler, now known as Juvederm® XC, was approved by the FDA back in 2006 for the treatment of mild to moderate creases and lines around the nose and mouth. Since then, the Juvederm® line has continued to expand, with each formula targeting different areas of the face.
What is Juvéderm Vollure XC?
One of the newest additions is Juvéderm Vollure® XC. Juvéderm Vollure® XC is intended to be used on moderate to deep folds around the mouth. The Vollure injections are formulated to create a smooth and soft appearance of line and wrinkles.
How does Vollure work?
All Juvéderm® fillers are “natural” fillers, as they are made with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body whose job is to keep the skin firm, plump, and hydrated. It does this by binding with nearby water molecules. When Dr. Colvin injects Vollure® beneath a deep line or crease, it instantly fills the sunken space as the hyaluronic acid gets to work. This pushes the skin back upwards, erasing the crease.
Juvéderm Vollure Treatment Areas
Juvéderm Vollure® XC is formulated for use in and around the lips including the following:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Parentheses lines
Candidates for Juvéderm Injections
Patients that have lost volume or elasticity due to aging or external factors may be a candidate for Juvéderm Vollure injections. If you have relatively deep nasolabial, marionette, and parentheses lines, Vollure® is a good option for addressing them. Vollure can work on more severe creases than other dermal fillers.
Juvéderm Vollure XC Results
In comparison to Juvéderm XC and other types of injections, Juvéderm Vollure XC is long lasting. In fact, Vollure is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler available. Typically, patients can expect to see results for up to 18 months. That means that results with Juvéderm Vollure last six months longer than any other filler.

Before & After Juvéderm Vollure XC Injections
Are there side effects from Vollure?
The potential side effects are the same as with other hyaluronic acid fillers. However, allergic reactions are rare because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. Side effects typically resolve quickly but can include:
- Slight swelling
