VOLLURE XC TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


Vollure is another Hyaluronic Acid injectable filler made by Allergan in the Juvederm family and is used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is a newer dermal filler released by the company for similar treatments as Juvederm Ultra Plus, but it absorbs less water, allowing it to be softer and more malleable. The company Allergan advertises that this filler may last up to 18 months and is most suitable for mild volume loss in facial wrinkles and folds.

Makeup can be worn the day following treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Vollure® XC


Is Vollure better than Juvederm for midface and nasolabial folds?
Both Juvederm and Vollure are Hyaluronic Acid fillers and are quite similar. Both are mainly used to treat the nasolabial folds (the parentheses around the mouth). Their main difference is in the thickness of the injectable gel and the tendency to absorb water. Vollure is a newer injectable and contains Allergan’s proprietary newer Vycross® cross-linking technology, which includes variation in the length of the Hyaluronic Acid particle chains. As a result, it aborbs less water, is a smoother / less viscuous injectable gel, and Allergan advertises that this filler may last up to 18 months. With Juvederm, on the other hand, Dr. Zuckerman finds that patients get 6mos to one year depending on the patient and the location of the injection site. Due to its lower tendency to absorb water, Vollure may induce less unintended temporary swelling in the hours or 1-2 days post treatment. Any post-treatment swelling resolves relatively quickly with either injectable, and most desired treatment results can be attained in either case as well.

Are Vollure injections painful?
Vollure injections are not painful even though the parts of the face can be sensitive, because Dr. Zuckerman applies a topical anesthetic before treatment and the injectable product itself contains lidcaine, an anesthetic. The patient feels little to no discomfort during injections.

Should I visit a doctor for Vollure injectable treatments in New York City?
If you visit Zuckerman Plastic Surgery for your injectable treatment, you can be certain that Dr. Zuckerman will recommend and perform the best treatment option for you in a safe and comfortable manner. In general, the use of injectable fillers has become so widespread that unfortunately not only may your injector not be a board-certified physician, if you undergo injections in a non-medical setting, an injector may have little formal medical training. Dr. Zuckerman recommends you visit a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for these injections (if you aren’t able to visit Zuckerman Plastic Surgery!). In New York City, there many options for injectables treatments, and many medical offices also offer injections by a registered nurse or physician’s assistant (PA), often at a lower price. These injectors are required to be overseen by a physician, so if you are considering these practitioners due to price, Dr. Zuckerman recommends that you confirm with the office ahead of time that there is a physician on the premises and inquire to what degree the physician oversees the injector’s activities.

What are the possible side effects of Vollure?
Vollure is overwhelmingly safe, well-tested and approved by the FDA. However, the most common side effects reported are redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching at the injection- site.

Are there any reasons in which I should not receive Vollure?
Do not use Vollure if you have a history of severe allergies or allergic reactions, or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the Gram-positive bacterial proteins used in these products.
