Getting older means noticing a lot of changes in your body. Some of these changes are inevitable, like the wrinkling and sagging of your skin. But you don’t have to put up with the side effects of aging forever. At Backstage Salon + Spa in Rowley, MA, our Vollure treatments can help you feel your best again.
What Is Vollure Used for?
Common signs of aging like wrinkling and sagging can have a massive impact on your self-esteem. If you’re noticing that your skin is looking duller and more wrinkled than it used to, then you might start lacking the confidence that you used to have in your youth.
One of the most common places where we tend to get wrinkles is around our nose and mouth area. The wrinkles that run from your nose down towards your mouth are called nasolabial folds or, more colloquially, laugh lines or smile lines. If you’re not happy with the way these wrinkles look on your face, then Vollure is the perfect solution.
What Is Vollure?
This is a dermal filler, which means that treatment is performed by using a fine needle to inject the product into your skin. This particular filler is actually part of Juvederm’s lineup. All Juvederm fillers use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient.
Getting this treatment will provide you with a safe and effective way to get back your youthful, healthy appearance. Specifically, this filler will target your laugh lines, smoothing out the wrinkles and giving more volume to the area to tighten sagging skin.
How Does It Work?
This filler’s main ingredient, hyaluronic acid, helps your skin in several ways. This is a sugar that is naturally found in parts of your body like your skin and other connective tissues. It provides your skin with hydration by binding to moisture molecules.
When it’s injected into your skin, the filler immediately takes up space beneath your skin. This volume is, in part, what helps to smooth out the skin. But that’s not all that the filler does. The hyaluronic acid also stimulates your body’s collagen production, which helps keep your skin firm and elastic.
Why Does Our Skin Change?
There’s no singular reason why your skin changes over time. It’s usually a combination of several factors. These factors will affect the chemicals in your skin that provide it with its structure and elasticity.
As you get older, your body produces fewer of these chemicals, resulting in sagging, wrinkling, and an overall loss of volume. This can be exacerbated by prolonged and unprotected exposure to the sun, as well as unhealthy habits like drinking, smoking, and not maintaining a good skincare routine.
What Are the Other Types of Juvederm?
While this filler may be great for nasolabial folds, there are other Juvederm products that can target other areas of your face. Depending on what result you’d like to see, you might receive one or more types of Juvederm during your treatment.
The area around your mouth and nose isn’t the only place where your face loses volume. It’s also likely that you’ll lose a considerable amount of volume in the cheek area. When this fullness gets lost, your cheeks will look thinner and the skin will sag as it also loses elasticity. This can end up resulting in jowls.
Voluma targets this area of your face. It will give you rounder, more defined cheeks with will help you look younger. By adding in more volume, it will also pull the skin tighter which will get rid of jowls that may have been forming.
If you’re not happy with the way your lips look, then Volbella might be the perfect solution for you. Thin, undefined lips can make you look old and very serious. That might not be an appearance that you necessarily want.
Volbella is a great way to enhance your lips without any surgical procedures. When you receive this filler, you’ll get plumper and more defined lips for a healthy, youthful appearance.
All About Treatment
Are you thinking about booking an appointment to receive this Juvederm filler? Our clinic is ready to welcome you. When you visit us, we’ll make sure that your treatment is safe, effective, and that you are comfortable throughout the entire process.
Before we can book your appointment, we’ll sit down for a consultation with you. This will allow us to discuss what your specific areas of concern are and come up with an effective treatment plan for you. We’ll also go over your medical history to make sure that this is the right solution for your concerns.
After your consultation, we’ll set you up with your injection appointment. Before the day of your appointment comes, there are a few things you’ll need to do to prepare. We’ll give you a complete list of instructions that are simple and easy to follow.
Some of the things we may ask you to do before your appointment include not taking any medications that can act as blood thinners during the week leading up to your injections. You should avoid aspirin and ibuprofen. You should also stop drinking and smoking at least 24 to 48 hours before your appointment.
When your appointment comes, we will be happy to welcome you back to our friendly and safe clinic. While you’re with us, we’ll do everything we can to help make sure that you are comfortable with every step of the treatment process.
Before we can apply the product, we’ll start by preparing your skin. First, we will clean the areas where the injections will be applied. Once this is done, we might apply a small amount of numbing cream to ensure the process is pain-free. With your skin now prepared, our technicians will inject the Juvederm product into your skin in multiple strategic locations.
One of the major benefits of a non-invasive treatment like this one is that there is virtually no downtime after your treatment is done. This means that you can leave our clinic right away and get back to work. We’ll provide you with a full list of instructions when you leave on how to take care of your skin while it heals.
For the next day or two, the main thing you’ll need to do is avoid direct sunlight, demanding physical activity, and anything that could make you sweat a lot. You’ll also need to continue avoiding drinking and smoking.
When Will I Notice Results?
If you’re getting any type of treatment, then you’re probably wondering when you’ll get to see the benefits. This particular filler is great for candidates looking for a fast-acting solution to their nasolabial folds.
While many other types of fillers can take weeks to begin to take effect, this filler will give you an immediate difference in your appearance. As soon as you leave our clinic, you’ll notice that your nasolabial folds appear smoother and less prominent. Over the coming week or so, you’ll see even more of an improvement in your appearance.
How Long Do Results Last?
Having results show up quickly is important. But it’s equally important to make sure that your results are going to last you a long time. There are many different fillers available on the market, but some of them don’t last particularly long.
That may be alright for some candidates who only want temporary results. But if you’d prefer something long-term, then this filler is perfect. As long as you follow our instructions and maintain a healthy skincare routine, it’s likely that you’ll be able to enjoy the results of your treatment for up to 18 months.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Wondering if this is the right treatment for you? There are some people who should not receive this injectable, including those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who have shown negative reactions to similar fillers in the past.
That said, this is an extremely safe and effective injectable. If you are in good overall health and you are concerned about the appearance of smile lines on your face, then you are a perfect candidate for this injectable.
