The sun’s UV rays, pollution and bad habits all take effect on our skin, leaving us with a dull, dry, aged and leathery texture.
But luckily for us, there is a highly effective solution, turning back the years and giving us a glowing, dewy, more youthful looking complexion! Our skin boosting treatment, the advanced Juvéderm Volite Dermal Filler, treats such damage. The mesotherapy-like solution uses the rejuvenating power of hyaluronic acid to hydrate and improve the elasticity of skin, add volume and remove fine lines, with safe, natural-looking and long-lasting results.
What is Volite?
As we mentioned, Volite Dermal Fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid. This acid is filler occurring naturally, and found in abundance, in the skin as well as our joints, cartilage and more.
Sometimes called “nature’s moisturiser”, the acid boasts a very high-water capacity, helping to hydrate our skin. Stimulating collagen production, the miracle ingredient also increases skin elasticity.
Daily, about one third of our hyaluronic acid is produced and broken down. But unfortunately, with time, our natural ability to regenerate hyaluronic acid gradually decreases.
The state-of-the-art filler also contain the local anaesthetic, Lidocaine, helping to numb the area and allow treatment to be as comfortable as possible.
This formulation of Volite means that it can be used in conjunction with other anti-ageing treatments.
What’s the difference between Volite and Wrinkle Injections?
Although both are injectable treatments, they work very differently. Wrinkle injections relax muscles causing wrinkles to appear, while Volite uses hyaluronic acid to rejuvenate and add volume to the area, for a younger looking appearance.
Volite involves very small superficial injections using an ultrafine needle and can be applied in specific areas. But many patients opt for an overall “facial-esque” boost, with tiny “blobs” of the filler applied all over the face. The treatment can also be applied to the neck, hands and décolletage.
The amount used will depend on the area being treated. 1 syringe (1ml) may be used for targeting specific areas; while a full face treatment would likely require 2 syringes (2ml).
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment takes approximately 45 minutes for 1 syringe, and one hour for two syringes, as topical anaesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment. The anaesthetic included in the filler makes the treatment virtually painless; however, also using topic anaesthetic will make the treatment more comfortable.
When will I see the results?
You may find you have some bruising and swelling initially, however, this commonly subsides within one week. Final results from the treatment will be seen approximately one month after treatment.
How often will I require treatment?
With just one treatment, Volite provides you with a refreshed appearance with incredible added moisture. Although, multiple sessions will achieve you optimum results.
As a maintenance treatment, we usually recommend one treatment every 6-9 months. However, depending on the severity of the problem shorter intervals may be required.
