Dr. Jacque LeBeau is proud to announce that he is now offering the newest filler on the market – Juvederm Vollure XC – an exciting new treatment to correct facial wrinkles and folds at the LeBeau Clinic in Pensacola, FL.
Juvederm Vollure XC is an FDA-approved Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler which adds subtle volume to specific facial areas affected by aging. The injectable gel was approved by the FDA on March 20, 2017 for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. These include the nasolabial folds, also known as the laugh lines or smile lines that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Sometimes the fold continues to the jawline as what we call the marionette lines.
Previously Juvederm and Radiesse were the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers for this area. Most people enjoy the results of these products for six to 12 months. However, the new Juvederm Vollure has been shown to last up to 18 months. This is because it uses Vycross technology. Vycross technology is also used in the other Allergen products – Juvederm, Voluma and Volbella. The cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid in products with Vycross technology is higher, allowing them to last longer. In fact, a recent US clinical trial resulted in subjects reporting improvements for up to 18 months post-injection. The longest lasting dermal filler on the market. There was also high subject satisfaction rate at both 6 and 18 months post-treatment.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It has the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. Hyaluronic acid draws water into the skin, restoring volume and improving fine lines and wrinkles. The active ingredient in many fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure is hyaluronic acid. The great thing about hyaluronic acid fillers is the safety profile. In the event of a side effect or if desired results are not achieved hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved.
