 Before and after reduced facial smile lines and wrinkles with Juvéderm Vollure XC treatment at Siti Med Spa in San Diego

Laugh lines. Marionette lines. Parentheses. Whatever you call those face-aging folds, lines, and wrinkles that show up like brackets around your mouth, we understand that you want them gone—stat. And we can help.  At Siti Med Spa in San Diego, our patients are thrilled with the age-defying results they’re seeing with Juvéderm Vollure XC.

What is Juvéderm Vollure XC?

Juvéderm Vollure XC is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds—with results that last up to 18 months! Although Juvéderm Vollure XC was just approved by the FDA this year, the formula has been on the market in Europe and Canada since 2013. This highly effective injectable filler works beneath the surface of your skin to add volume, smooth smile lines and wrinkles, and restore your face to its youthful contours.  

How does Juvéderm Vollure XC work?

In order to understand how Juvéderm Vollure XC works, it’s important to first know how nasolabial lines and folds develop and deepen. You can probably guess how laugh-lines got their name—they appear as the result of repeated movement.  So, big laughers and talkers with expressive faces are more susceptible to the development of lines, folds, and wrinkles around the mouth. Additionally, sun damage and the natural aging process both contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elasticity, causing your skin to lose structure and volume and resulting in sagging cheeks and deepened laugh lines.  Genes play a role as well. If your mom has deep nasolabial folds and wrinkles, then chances are good you’ll get them, too.

Juvéderm Vollure XC replenishes your hyaluronic acid to restore volume and reduce the appearance of those smile lines and wrinkles.

Juvéderm Vollure XC uses hyaluronic acid to add subtle yet noticeable volume to correct these face-aging wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in the body that secures moisture and creates fullness in the skin. Unfortunately, our ability to produce it declines with age. 

The magic of Vycross® technology

Juvéderm Vollure XC isn’t just any hyaluronic acid filler—the formula uses Allergen’s proprietary Vycross® technology, which combines different weights of hyaluronic acid at the molecular level.  While most hyaluronic fillers are created with 100% high molecular weight, Juvéderm formulas with Vycross® technology use 90% low molecular weight and 10% high molecular weight. This makes for a smoother formula that’s both easier to inject and easier to integrate into your skin. The combination of molecular weights results in natural looking youthful contours that last up to 18 months!  In other words, Juvéderm Vollure XC is the gift that keeps on giving.
