What can Vollure improve?

Is Vollure safe?
Vollure is derived from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring water molecule which is identical across animal species. The incidence of allergic reactions or permanent side effects is extremely rare. The Juvederm family of soft tissue fillers has been used safely and effectively for decades. Most importantly, patients can feel reassured that if an unusual reaction or undesirable results should occur, Vollure can be painlessly and rapidly removed by dissolving the material with a fluid-based enzyme, which is very rarely done.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure is very well tolerated with use of prescription strength topical anesthetic cream and/or ice. Patients report none to minor discomfort and/or pressure.
Is there downtime?
Vollure treatment frequently has no downtime or very minimal downtime due to its unique property of stability in volume correction (swelling is minor or nonexistent in almost all cases) and use of very fine needles to avoid bruising.
