Even if you try to take good care of yourself, your face will change as you age. As you become older, you will notice wrinkles appearing around your nose and mouth. These wrinkles can make you feel unhappy with your appearance. Fortunately, smoothing these lines is easy. At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa in Pensacola, Florida, we can minimize your wrinkles with Vollure. This injectable treatment will enhance your appearance in a quick, minimally invasive manner.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Vollure?
Vollure is a dermal filler that can temporarily reduce the prominence of your wrinkles and lines. This fantastic injectable product can target moderate-to-severe folds and wrinkles on your face. In fact, this treatment is an ideal way to improve the appearance of “parentheses lines” that form near your mouth and nose. These wrinkles are also known as laugh lines or nasolabial folds.
Why Do I Have Wrinkles Around My Mouth and Nose?
Wrinkles around your mouth and nose can make you look constantly upset or tired. There are several reasons why you develop these frustrating lines as you become older.
When you smile or laugh, your muscles will contract and the skin around your nose and mouth will move. Although being a happy, joyful person is a good thing, these repeated expressions will change the appearance of your face by creating lines around your nose and mouth. Over the years, these lines will become deeper and more noticeable.
As you age, your skin will begin to change. The levels of collagen and elastin in your body will decrease. Collagen and elastin are proteins that strengthen the structure of your skin and help it resist the effects of gravity.
In addition to producing decreased levels of these proteins, your body will produce less hyaluronic acid as it ages. This acid is a sugar that has a very large impact on the appearance of your skin. This amazing substance moisturizes your skin, making it look plumper and more youthful. As your levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid decline, your skin will become weaker and less hydrated. As a result, you will develop wrinkles and fine lines on your face.
Your diet, exercise routine, and other lifestyle choices also impact the appearance of your skin. Eating an unhealthy diet and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol will harm your skin. Similarly, spending too much time in the sun will expose your body to ultra-violet rays that damage structural elements in your skin. Over time, these lifestyle choices will increase your chances of developing wrinkles on your face.
A Difficult Problem
Fixing these wrinkles on your own is a very challenging endeavor. Although you can live a healthy lifestyle and stay out of the sun, you can’t change the other factors that cause you to develop wrinkles. Further, many topical skincare products won’t improve the appearance of deeper lines. Fortunately, you don’t have to handle this issue by yourself. Vollure can improve your wrinkles in a quick, minimally invasive manner.
How Does This Injectable Treatment Improve My Wrinkles?
This injectable product uses hyaluronic acid to treat your wrinkles. Since your body naturally produces this substance, you are likely to react well to this ingredient. Once we administer the dermal filler in your target area, the hyaluronic acid will smooth your skin and minimize the appearance of the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
If you’re never received a dermal filler before, you might worry that the injection process will be difficult and uncomfortable. This is a needless worry, and receiving this injectable treatment is actually a very straightforward, relaxing process.
You will receive this treatment during a short appointment at our comfortable office in Pensacola, Florida. We will begin by cleaning your skin. Once your skin is clean, we will carefully administer your injections.
This product contains lidocaine. This is a local anesthetic that will numb your skin and keep you comfortable as we administer your treatment. As a result, the injection process is very gentle, and you will feel relaxed as we quickly inject this product into your target area.
Does This Treatment Have a Lengthy Recovery Period?
If you’re a busy person who has an active, full life, you’ll love how quickly and easily you recover from your treatment. Like other dermal fillers, this wrinkle reduction method has minimal to no downtime. You will be able to return to your job, exercise routine, and most other activities immediately.
When Will I Notice Improvements in My Wrinkles?
This fast-acting treatment provides immediate results, and you should notice an improvement in your wrinkles right away. That said, your body may take up to two weeks to adjust to your treatment. After this time has passed, you should see the full effect of your dermal filler.
How Long Will My Results Last?
This treatment is an excellent way to change your appearance in a noticeable, lasting manner. Many injectable products and other cosmetic treatments can only improve your wrinkles for short periods of time. To keep up your youthful look, you will have to get regular maintenance treatments. Attending these appointments can take time away from your job, hobbies, and other activities. Further, the cost of these follow-up treatments will quickly add up.
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about these problems when you use this injectable product to enhance your look. This dermal filler is a very efficient, cost-effective way to smooth your wrinkles. Although your individual results will vary, the effects of your treatment may last for up to eighteen months.
Since this treatment is very efficient, you won’t have to receive monthly or bi-yearly touch-up injections. Instead, you may be able to wait more than a year before you receive your first maintenance treatment.
What Is the Difference Between This Treatment and Other Juvederm Products?
Juvederm makes a variety of dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to enhance your appearance. Although these fillers use the same substance, they have unique formulas that are designed to treat a wide variety of imperfections and issues. These treatments also last for different lengths of time.
Juvederm Voluma XC
As you age, you will lose volume in your cheeks. Juvederm Voluma XC is a wonderful filler that restores this lost volume to this facial feature. These improvements may last for up to two years.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Juvederm Ultra XC is an ideal way to enhance your lips. This innovative filler can correct age-related volume loss in your lips and add fullness to naturally thin lips. This filler’s effects may last for up to a year.
Juvederm Volbella XC
Juvederm Volbella XC can improve the appearance of your lips by minimizing vertical lip lines and adding volume to this facial feature. The results of this product can last for up to a year.
Choosing a Product
If you’re not sure which dermal filler is best for you, don’t worry. We will give you more details about our broad range of dermal fillers during our initial meeting. We will analyze the features that you would like to improve and recommend a dermal filler that will work for you. If you are trying to enhance multiple facial features, we may advise you to use several different dermal fillers to achieve your desired improvements.
Can This Treatment Improve My Appearance on My Wedding Day?
This fantastic product can help you look youthful and beautiful on your wedding day. At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa, we have helped many brides enhance their looks, and we can use this experience to design a customized bridal beauty plan for you.
You’ll begin this treatment by meeting with our aesthetic consultant. During this consultation, we will analyze your skin and discuss your cosmetic goals and preferences. Although your plan will be unique, we may advise you to receive this dermal filler about four months before your wedding day. This timeline will allow the filler to settle before your big day.
In addition to dermal fillers, we can use a variety of other cosmetic treatments to enhance your bridal look. Depending on your desired outcome, we may advise you to receive facials, chemical peels, and other treatments in addition to this injectable product.
What Is the Difference Between This Dermal Filler and Botox?
Dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox use different ingredients to improve your wrinkles. As a result, these treatments can improve different types of wrinkles.
Relaxing Your Muscles
Botox does not use hyaluronic acid to minimize your wrinkles. Instead, this injectable product uses a substance called botulinum toxin. This substance is a protein made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Once we inject this product into your target area, it will stop the nerves in this location from sending a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine to your muscles.
Preventing your nerves from releasing acetylcholine will temporarily relax the muscles in your treatment area. As your muscles relax, your skin will smooth and your wrinkles will appear to be less prominent and noticeable. This injectable product is fantastic at treating wrinkles made by repeated facial expressions, like moderate-to-severe crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
Since Botox and dermal fillers treat different issues, you may benefit from using both of these injectable treatments. Using a variety of treatments will allow you to improve a wide variety of facial wrinkles and imperfections.
Am I Eligible to Receive This Injectable Treatment?
Hyaluronic acid is a gentle ingredient that is usually very well-tolerated. Accordingly, if you are an adult who wants to correct moderate-to-severe folds and wrinkles near your mouth and nose, you are likely to be eligible for this injectable treatment.
Although this treatment is very safe and easy, it isn’t the right choice for everyone. In particular, you cannot use this wrinkle reduction method if you have an allergy to the bacterial proteins used in the product or to lidocaine. You are also ineligible for this treatment if you have a history of severe allergic reactions or multiple severe allergies.
Further, you cannot receive this injectable product while you have certain temporary health issues. For instance, you cannot receive this treatment while you have a fever, infection, or active cold sores and fever blisters. You also cannot have a sunburn in your target area or active shingles. You must delay your treatment until these issues have resolved.
Rejuvenate Your Look
Fixing your parentheses lines is easier than ever before. Vollure can improve the appearance of these wrinkles and give you smoother, more youth-looking skin. Even better, this minimally invasive treatment is very easy to fit into your schedule.
