Are you bothered by unwanted facial lines and wrinkles? As we age, our faces change. With that process comes volume loss and the addition of lines, wrinkles, and folds. At Esthetix MD Spa & Laser Center in Bend, OR, we offer a number of cosmetic and injectable treatments including Juvéderm Vollure XC to help patients look refreshed and natural.
Juvéderm is manufactured by Allergan, the makers of Botox. It is a collection of FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers designed to add volume to targeted areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. It adds moisture and volume to the skin. When we age, we lose the moisture and volume. Juvéderm helps restore the volume that has been lost naturally through the aging process and gives patients long-lasting results.
As the newest addition, Juvéderm Vollure XC is a gel injected into the skin to soften moderate to severe facial lines for a smoother appearance. It is often used to fill deeper lines such as the nasolabial folds or marionette lines around the nose, mouth, and chin. With age, our skin loses volume and elasticity which then contributes to the formation of lines. Injecting Juvéderm Vollure XC into the skin adds fullness to the treatment area. As part of the XC line, this filler contains lidocaine making the treatment more tolerable for patients.
