Vollure is the newest dermal filler available at A E Skin and we are excited to announce that we are getting outstanding results.
What is Vollure?
Vollure is the newest member of the Juvederm family of fillers available in the United States. Vollure is a hyaluronic acid product the restores volume to areas of volume loss such as wrinkles. It has been used in Europe for several years under the name Volift. Similar to Voluma and Volbella, Vollure is made using Vycross technology. This means that different sizes of hyaluronic acid are used and it has a higher level of cross linking, which makes it last longer.
What does Vollure treat?
Vollure is designed to address moderate to severe wrinkles on the face. These include the laugh lines (also known as nasolabial folds) that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. In some people the lines extend to the jawline as what are called the marionette lines. Additionally, Vollure can also address secondary wrinkles around these areas.
There are now four members of the Juvederm family: Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure. Juvederm is the first product that has been available for many years now. The manufacturer (Allergan) developed the new Vycross technology to allow the product to last longer. The first product using Vycross technology that was released in the United States is Voluma. Subsequently Volbella was approved last year and Vollure more recently this year. The difference between the three products in the Juvederm family that are made using Vycross technology is the amount of hyaluronic acid in them. Voluma has the highest level of hyaluronic acid, allowing for volumization and a lift in the upper cheeks. Volbella has the lowest level of hyaluronic acid, making it a softer product suitable for the lips and fines lines around the lips. Vollure has an intermediate level of hyaluronic acid, making it ideal for laugh lines and marionette lines.
When will I see results with Vollure?
The great thing about Vollure is that the results are seen right away. There is some swelling that lasts up to two weeks after a Vollure treatment. Most people actually enjoy the swelling because it improves the appearance of wrinkles. Final results with Vollure are seen once the swelling subsides after approximately two weeks.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the skin that binds 1,000 times its weight in water. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid will draw water into the area to fill wrinkles and folds.
