Cosmetic injectables and fillers are typically geared at turning back the clock, but Juvéderm Volite is meant to help make your daily moisturizing routine a little easier, while also helping to keep the clock ticking forward more slowly.
The treatment, which has been around for a few years in Russia and Europe, is just making its way to the United States.
Juvéderm Volite uses hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body to moisturize the skin. HA is able to hold up to 1000 times it weight in water, which is why it is so excellent at keeping the skin hydrated. Our skin already contains HA, but as we age the body’s storage of HA is slowly depleted.
The only real drawback to the treatment is the injections. To undergo the treatment, you probably shouldn’t be afraid of needles.
One single Juvéderm Volite treatment typically consists of between 60-100 injections. Juvéderm Volite is commonly used to treat the face, neck décolletage and the back of the hands. Another differentiating factor of this treatment, compared to other injectables, is that other treatments are more geared towards filling in wrinkles and providing contour. Juvéderm Volite moisturizing treatments seek to improve the health of the skin itself.
The biggest caveat for those seeking Juvéderm Volite in the US would be to find a doctor that is experienced in the treatment. Administering this treatment requires precise execution to reach the correct area and layer of the skin. Ensuring your physician is experienced will help guarantee your satisfaction with the results, which can last up to 9 months.
