Do you notice lines forming around your nose and mouth as you age? Our Juvederm Vollure treatments at Old Town Med Spa in Chicago, IL could be just what you need if you’re concerned about wrinkles and folds in this area of your face.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm Vollure?
With age, wrinkles appear more prominent on your face. There are a number of reasons for this, including volume loss. As you age, you can expect your skin to change in appearance like this, but the change can still make you feel self-conscious. If this sounds like you, you’re probably a good candidate.
Vollure targets wrinkles around the nose and mouth area and helps restore volume. If you’re in reasonably good health and have wrinkles in this area of the face that you’d like to address–or if you want to prevent them from forming in the first place–you’re likely a good candidate for this injectable.
There are very few things that can mean you’re not a good candidate for this dermal filler, so contact us right away if you’re interested. At your initial consultation, we can go over your concerns and your health condition and let you know quickly if this is the right treatment for you.
Why Your Skin Changes
Understanding how Juvederm products work requires first discussing why your skin may change in the first place. Your skin is made up of a variety of naturally occurring chemicals that contribute to its fullness and structure. Hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastic are among the proteins and sugars in this area.
Chemicals like these are plentiful when you are young. As you age, your body becomes less adept at producing them naturally. This causes more damage to your skin, as well as a loss of volume.
How Vollure Can Help
The main ingredient in Juvederm products, including this one, is hyaluronic acid. Since this sugar is found in the human body, this injectable is incredibly safe and effective for treating wrinkles. You can use this to fill in the nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, around your nose and mouth.
If you have wrinkles on your face, you may look older than you are (or than you feel!) If you get a Juvederm filler, however, the area will regain volume. The skin will be tightened, smoothed, and wrinkles will be reduced. Your body’s production of collagen will also be naturally stimulated by the presence of hyaluronic acid, which keeps your skin firm and elastic.
Can Anything Preclude My Candidacy?
Due to the fact that this product’s main ingredient occurs naturally in the body, almost anyone can benefit from it. In addition to being non-allergenic, it offers a safe solution for anyone seeking to reduce wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume in the nose and mouth regions.
It may not be the best treatment for you, though, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have had a negative reaction to fillers in the past. However, this treatment is generally beneficial to a wide range of people, including those who:
Want Something Long-Lasting
There are a variety of fillers that only last for a short time. If you only care about short-term results, that might be fine with you. This filler, however, is perfect for those who know what they want and are looking for a solution that will last.
The results of your treatment are expected to last between one and two years. Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle will help you achieve the longest-lasting results.
Have Tried Botox and Didn’t Like It
Dysport and related fillers like Botox can be highly effective in treating wrinkles and folds. But these products may not be right for everyone. These agents act as neuromodulators, meaning that they freeze the muscles under the skin to prevent creases and smooth out wrinkles.
Juvederm products can offer a safe and effective alternative to Botox if you have tried it before but weren’t satisfied with the results or your body’s reaction to the ingredients.
Want Fast Results
It may take weeks for some injectables on the market to begin showing results. For those who don’t want to wait, Juvederm products like this one may be the answer.
You will see a subtle, natural change in your appearance very soon after receiving your injection. It instantly smoothes out your skin, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and taking up space beneath your skin. The effects will become more apparent over the next couple of days.
Want Natural-Looking Results
People often fear that the results of fillers won’t look natural, which is one of the reasons why they avoid getting them. The majority of injectables aren’t as dangerous as you may have heard in some viral stories. You will get the natural-looking results you desire if you have your treatment from a clinic with reputable and trained technicians like ours.
Once you’ve had your injections, you can immediately leave the clinic and go back to normal life. No one will know you’ve “had work done” unless you choose to tell them. Instead, you’ll just look younger and more refreshed.
Want Something Safe
One of the best things about this dermal filler is that it’s not just effective, but also safe. Its main ingredient is something that’s found in various parts of your body anyway, such as the skin, eyes, and joints. This means your body is highly unlikely to reject the filler.
Juvederm products are formulated carefully to ensure their safety and effectiveness. The line is FDA-approved. As long as you come to an established clinic like ours, you can trust your experience will be very safe.

Preparing for Treatment

You will find these instructions simple and easy to follow. During the week leading up to your appointment, you’ll just need to avoid a few things. Medications that may act as blood thinners should be avoided to prevent bruising and to ensure that your treatment is as effective as possible. During the days leading up to your appointment, we ask that you refrain from smoking or drinking alcohol.
We look forward to welcoming you to our clinic on the day of your treatment. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable during your treatment. We will carefully clean the areas where the injections will be administered before they are given. Numbing cream may also be applied.

As this treatment does not require invasive procedures, you’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your appointment is completed. We’ll provide you with some instructions as to how to make sure you’re recovering as quickly as possible; but these are minimal. There’s not much you need to do.
Avoid direct sunlight and any physical activity that might make you sweat excessively, as well as direct sunlight. Do not consume any alcohol or tobacco during the few days after your injections. Other than these simple things, there’s not much to do, and you can go back to your regular routine right away.
