There are many features that can make you look attractive, and according to research, your jawline is one of them. It may seem like a random part of your face, but the jawline attracts a lot of attention. However, unlike other parts of your body that can be trained with exercise, jawlines and chins are not that easy to sculpt.
Enter JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC: the filler that can make your jawline look nice and chiseled. However, like most dermal fillers, the substance will eventually exit your body, but in this blog, we will find out exactly how long you can enjoy the JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC results.
What Is JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC?
JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC is an HA-based injectable dermal filler that is part of the JUVÉDERM® collection. It contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid that can provide definition and structure to your jawline, making you look more sculpted and youthful.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ before and after pictures often show a more lifted and chiseled facial appearance. It is a very common procedure among men that want a sharper jawline, but it’s also a great option for women who want a sculpted and balanced face.
How Long Does JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC Last?
One thing that you need to know is that the effects of JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC are not permanent. While hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, your immune system will perceive it as something foreign. As a result, your body will gradually expel it through the skin until you reach “base form.”
JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC can stay in your system for up to 18 months. However, the closer you get to that mark, the less visible the results will be. This is why we recommend that you have a touch-up treatment after 10 months to replenish the JUVÉDERM® filler that has already exited your system.
The rate at which the JUVÉDERM® is expelled also depends on your immune system and your injection site. For instance, if the JUVÉDERM® is added to a region with high mobility, the muscle contractions may cause the effects to last for a shorter time. If the filler is added to a static area, the effects may last longer.
How Long Do the JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ Sessions Last?
The length of a JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC session varies from case to case. If you have a bigger area to treat, then the treatment may last longer.
JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC treatments typically take 30 minutes. However, if you are treating a smaller area, such as your chin, then the session can take less. After an initial consultation with our team, we can establish how long the treatment will take in your case.
How to Make the Most of Your JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC Treatment?
JUVÉDERM® will exit your system naturally, but there are several ways to make it last longer. For one, you need to follow the aftercare instructions provided by our specialists. Make sure not to engage in sweat-inducing activities for the next 24 hours, and avoid adding pressure until the filler settles.
UV rays can also lead to collagen degradation, which is why you need to protect your skin. Use sunblock each time you go out of the house, even during winter. Additionally, serums may help maintain the results, especially retinol-based ones, which is why you need to establish a proper skincare routine.
Last, but not least, make sure to stay hydrated and have a balanced diet to offer your skin the nutrients that it needs to produce more collagen.
