It is used as an injectable dermal filler to smooth the deep wrinkles and creases of the face caused by aging. Like other products offered by JUVÉDERM, Volift is packed with a potent solution of hyaluronic acid and completed with lidocaine to ensure a quick, pain-free procedure. This new formulation improves the efficiency and effectiveness of previous products, allowing a smaller concentration of hyaluronic acid to be used to achieve the same results.
Gravity and time often are not kind to the skin and underlying facial tissues that support our looks. Some of the areas that are naturally affected by aging include the cheeks, jaw line, and chin, all of which are susceptible to a loss of volume as you grow older. Another result of this volume loss is the appearance of deep wrinkles and creases where skin once used to be firm.
Volift effectively fills out these areas of the face that need more support, providing wrinkle treatment and helping you regain your youthful appearance.
Dr. Torgerson will work with you to determine exactly what features in your face you would like accentuated. Together you will decide on the specific wrinkles you would like to eliminate in order to look your best. This is a walk-in and walk-out procedure, with the entire process typically lasting under an hour.
The addition of lidocaine to Volift serves as an anaesthetic to numb the area where the injections are taking place. This will reduce any discomfort sometimes associated with procedures involving needles and injections.
The smooth and versatile formulation of Volift will allow Dr. Torgerson great control while contouring the face, resulting in an even distribution and a brilliant, natural look.
Although Volift contains less hyaluronic acid, it has the same degree of effectiveness as other products, and the side effects after the procedure are normally minimal. Most of Dr. Torgerson’s patients report only minor swelling or irritation after the treatment. This is perfect for those that are trying to be discreet about their treatment. For many, they will leave the procedure looking and feeling excellent. Over the next few days, the results will continue to even out, and any minor swelling will subside, leaving you with a completely natural and youthful appearance.
Volift has a long duration, and for some people the results will last up to 15 months. Individual duration of effects is dependent on body chemistry, as each body is unique and will slowly break down the hyaluronic acid at different rates.
Because of the artistic skills involved in sculpting and reshaping the face, it is important to choose an experienced cosmetic surgeon with a sharp eye for detail.
