Juvéderm® XC and Vollure XC in Madison, CT
Getting older doesn’t just mean getting wiser. Day-to-day life and environmental stressors each take their toll on a person’s appearance – in particular, their skin. The aging process slows the body’s ability to produce collagen, an important building block to youthful skin. This causes environmental stressors to damage skin faster than it can heal, leading to the development of fine lines. Aging can also cause certain parts of the face to lose their volume, such as the cheeks, around the eyes and lips. The result can leave patients self-conscious and feeling as if they look older than they truly are.
Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic injectables designed specifically to address these common side effects of aging. While there are plenty of options available, some of the most trusted are Juvéderm® XC and Vollure.
Why we love Juvéderm® Vollure
At Aria DermSpa, we heavily vet all treatment options offered to patients. When it comes to dermal fillers, Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm® Vollure are among our most popular and are highly recommended.
Like other leading brands, these dermal fillers are specially formulated with hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance that helps skin hold onto moisture. As a result, the formulas used in these dermal fillers work with your body to replace lost structure and volume, smoothing out facial lines and folds. In addition to replenish your skin’s ability to retain moisture, the unique formula helps improve skin elasticity and structure for dramatic yet natural-looking revitalization to your skin.

In these instances, our cosmetic specialist may recommend combining several injectable options to create a more effective, longer lasting result.
Frequently Asked Questions
While Juvéderm® Vollure and similar injectable treatments are minimally invasive, the prospect of cosmetic treatment can bring up many questions for interested patients. Here are some of the most common questions our Madison cosmetic surgeon receives around the procedure.
FDA-approved Juvéderm® XC and Vollure XC can reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including smile lines, marionette lines, and vertical lip lines. Vollure XC differs from the original Juvéderm® XC formula by containing a larger variety of molecular weights of hyaluronic acid for longer-lasting results, up to 18 months, as opposed to Juvéderm® XC, which can provide up to 12 months of rejuvenation.
Getting Juvéderm® injections is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in as little as 30 minutes. During your visit, Dr. Donofrio will first mark areas where the injection will be placed. The formula will then be administered with an ultra-fine hypodermic needle. Once completed, patients are free to return to work or their daily schedule.
Juvéderm® dermal fillers provide results immediately following injection. However, optimal results become fully noticeable within two weeks following treatment.
Looking for long-term but not permanent facial rejuvenation? Juvéderm® Vollure or XC may be just what you need. Our patients have seen treatment results last anywhere between six and 18 months, depending on the type of dermal filler you receive and placement. During your consultation, Dr. Donofrio will be able to provide you with a better understanding of how long you can expect your specific treatment to last.
Where surgical facial rejuvenation can require weeks of downtime and multiple follow-up visits, Juvéderm® injectables are an outpatient procedure where patients can come in for treatment and get on with their day once they leave. Neither Juvéderm® XC nor Vollure require downtime.
With a smooth consistency and lidocaine infusion, Juvéderm® and Vollure provide a comfortable treatment. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site. These typically dissipate quickly and on their own. If you notice these issues lasting several days following treatment, contact our office for a follow-up consultation.
