What is it?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injectable gel is a smooth, clear, colorless hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of HA in the skin is to help retain natural moisture and softness. The lidocaine helps to improve the comfort of the injection. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC injectable gel is manufactured using VYCROSS® technology to give a specialized smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results for up to 18 months at the treatment site.
What is it for?
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is injected with an ultrafine needle into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) occur.
How does it work?
As you age, wrinkles develop on your face, and nasolabial folds may become more visible. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is designed to temporarily reverse signs of aging by adding subtle volume to facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds) and restoring a smoother appearance to the face in patients over the age of 21. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of excessive scarring (eg, hypertrophic scarring and keloid formations) or pigmentation disorders, as use of these products may result in additional scars or changes in pigmentation
Tell your doctor if you are planning other laser treatments or a chemical peel, as there is a possible risk of inflammation at the treatment site if these procedures are performed after treatment
Patients who experience skin injury near the site of injection with this product may be at a higher risk for side effects
Tell your doctor if you are on immunosuppressive therapy used to decrease the body's immune response, as use of these products may result in an increased risk of infection
Tell your doctor if you are using medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinners, as this may result in increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site
Minimize strenuous exercise, exposure to extensive sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours following treatment
What are possible side effects?
One of the risks with using these products is unintentional injection into a blood vessel, and while rare, the complications can be serious and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring.

What happens during the procedure?
After the first injection, your doctor will wait a few seconds to allow the lidocaine to take effect before moving forward with the rest of the treatment. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC will be injected in small amounts into the treatment area until the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved. Your doctor may massage the treatment area gently to assure that the product integrates in the skin and is evenly distributed for a smooth appearance. Ice may be applied for a brief period following treatment to minimize swelling and reduce pain.
Do the injections hurt?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. In the JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC clinical study, immediately after the injection, subjects rated pain, on average, as a 2.3 on an 11-point scale where 0 is no pain and 10 is the worst pain imaginable. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC contains lidocaine to reduce pain at the injection site. Your doctor may also choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area with a numbing agent to further minimize discomfort. 10. AFTER PROCEDURE INFORMATION
