Juvederm Vollure is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to smooth away lines and wrinkles on the lower face. The filler is injected into the dermal layers to restore volume and reduce signs of aging. Static wrinkles around the nose and mouth, including nasolabial folds, smile lines, and marionette lines, tend to respond best to this treatment.
All of our physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York® have extensive experience with fillers and injectables, including the Juvederm line. Our physicians performed several trials for the use and development of these fillers and injectables in our clinical research department. We are leaders in the field of cosmetic dermatology and the largest users of fillers and injectables in the world. Our board-certified dermatologists are proud to offer an extensive collection of fillers near you in New York City.
How does Juvederm Vollure Work?
Juvederm Vollure works deep into the dermal layers to restore support lost due to collagen depletion. Collagen is a protein found in the dermal structure that gives the skin its smooth, supple appearance. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to skin laxity and wrinkle formation. By restoring that support, Juvederm Vollure effectively reverses some signs of aging to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps the dermal structure to retain moisture and volume. When hyaluronic acid is placed into the dermal structure, it produces smooth, natural skin rejuvenation from the inside out.

Do Juvederm Vollure Injections Hurt?
Juvederm Vollure is administered using a very fine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula, depending on the treatment area and the amount of filler needed. Lidocaine is included in the Juvederm Vollure formulation, which is a numbing medication that further reduces discomfort during the procedure. Most patients find the treatment to be quick and relatively comfortable.
When Will I See Results?
You will see improvement in your wrinkles immediately following your treatment. There may be some mild swelling or bruising around the injection sites that will interfere with your final result. But once the skin heals fully, which usually only takes a day or two, the full results become apparent and will last for many months.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities. There is minimal downtime and your dermatologist may give you specific aftercare instructions. Sometimes a bruise occurs because of the needle’s contact with the skin, so plan accordingly with your personal and professional obligations. Our doctors also offer options to minimize bruising after the procedure, including laser and topical treatments.
