Juvéderm Volux XC
Facial balancing is in high demand with aesthetic injectors and aesthetic practices all over the United States. Facial contouring can correct, add definition, or fullness to areas of the face that have been lost through the natural aging process. It is also common for women to desire a specific look that they were not born with. A well-defined jawline can improve your profile and provide a more youthful appearance. Women of all ages are raving about the snatched jawline look! Let’s face it, most of us were not born with such a contoured look and do not have the perfect profile, especially as we age. Even if you were born with this appearance, if you are reaching a certain age, you have noticed that your face is showing signs of sagging, even the sharpest of jaws have turned into jowls, and even some of us are plagued with the dreaded double chin! According to Allergan Aesthetics, 40% of patients are interested in cosmetic treatments to improve the look of their lower face area. Well, ladies, let us take a moment and applaud the family of Juvéderm fillers once again! We no longer must undergo invasive cosmetic surgery to achieve our desired look. Thanks to Allergan, the makers of Botox, there is now a non-surgical alternative to achieving the jawline of our youth, the new dermal filler Juvéderm Volux XC.
What is Juvéderm Volux XC?
Juvéderm Volux XC is the newest addition to the world’s number-one chosen line of facial fillers. The new FDA-approved dermal filler is specifically designed for the jawline and chin. Volux XC is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid. It is used to add volume to the chin and jawline to improve the appearance of the face and enhance your natural facial contours. It is currently the only non-surgical option for restoring definition and volume in the chin and jaw. Volux XC is different from other hyaluronic acid fillers because of its density. Since Volux XC is much denser, it creates a better structure and shape along the jawline and chin. In technical terms of rheological properties dermal fillers vary based on the product’s viscosity, elasticity, and cohesivity. Viscosity and elasticity are measured by the G prime (G’). Dermal fillers with high G prime are firmer and tend to keep their shape. This is important in facial rejuvenation in that these products have more lifting and contouring capacity. This results in a decreased appearance of jowls and a smoother contour along the jawline.
Volux XC Delivers Visible Results Immediately Following the Procedure
After injection, patients noticed a more contoured jawline with a significant definition between the neck and jaw. They also state their profile is more defined, which helps give them a more youthful and sculpted look. Depending on the age and desired goal of each patient, some patients will require multiple syringes of Volux XC to reach their optimal appearance.
Juvéderm Volux XC Addresses the Following Concerns:
- Lifting and contouring the lower face
- Improves jawline definition
- Sculpts the chin and jawline
- Restores lost volume, which reduces sagging in the jawline, neck, and chin area
- Treats a sunken chin
- Adjusts the look of your face to achieve better facial symmetry and overall balance
How Does Juvéderm Volux XC Work?
When it comes to facial rejuvenations, as we age there are many factors that contribute to the appearance of jowls, and a loss of soft tissue can also cause a recession of the chin and a weak appearance of the jawline. Juvéderm Volux XC is a hyaluronic facial filler that provides structure, hydration, and volume at the injection site. When your medical provider injects the dermal filler under your skin or just above the bone, the results of the treatment contour the jawline helping to improve jawline definition. The Juvéderm family of fillers includes some products with proprietary Vycross cross-linking technology to ensure the filler provides structure and is long-lasting.
How Long Do the Results of Juvéderm Volux XC Typically Last?
The results of Juvéderm Volux XC are longer lasting than most fillers, as they can last as long as a year! Over time the filler is dissolved by the body. Everyone responds differently to its absorption rate, but most patients can expect Volux XC to last around 12 months. Individual results may vary.
Where Should Juvéderm Volux XC be Injected?
Since it was designed specifically for the improvement of jawline definition, the typical treatment areas will be the chin, jowls, and jawline.
