Fine lines and wrinkles aren’t the only telltale signs of aging. Age can also weaken your jawline and lead to jowl formation, as board-certified dermatologist Adrienne Stewart, MD, and her team at Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek know. At their office in the Cherry Creek neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, the aesthetic specialists offer Juvéderm® Volux™ XC to refine the jawline and boost the chin’s appearance. Call or schedule an appointment online today to learn more.
Juvéderm Volux XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler for jawline and chin enhancement. Specially formulated to reduce the appearance of jowl formation and define the jawlines, the filler uses a hyaluronic acid construction to improve balance and symmetry in your face. Many men and women choose Juvéderm Volux to achieve a chiseled jawline and improve facial harmony.
Juvéderm Volux uses VYCROSS® technology and a biodegradable compound called BDDE, which crosslinks hyaluronic acid for an ultra-smooth filler. Crosslinked hyaluronic acid is more durable and stable than the substance in its rawest form, making it ideal for subtly enhancing the jawline and chin.
Dr. Stewart and her aesthetic team use an ultra-fine needle or a cannula, a thin, flexible tube, to safely deliver the filler into the lower face. Juvéderm Volux also contains lidocaine to minimize pain and sensitivity for a comfortable treatment.
Volux specifically enhances the chin and jawline, which can lose volume as you age. This special formulation provides structure for your lower face. When volume in your midface and jawline depletes, your skin starts to sag, leading to jowl formations. Juvéderm Volux essentially provides scaffolding for the skin to lift and tighten the chin and jawline.
Volux can also temporarily reduce the appearance of a double chin by providing a lifting effect. This treatment is ideal if you want a smoother chin and jawline but are not interested in fat-dissolving treatments, like Kybella®, or facelift surgery.
While the lidocaine in Juvéderm Volux can enhance your comfort during treatment, Dr. Stewart may also apply a topical numbing cream before your injections. Once you’re comfortable, she injects the medication into the predetermined areas. You can see the results immediately, though you may experience temporary bruising, swelling, and redness.
Juvéderm Volux is a long-lasting filler that can work for 12-24 months. Once the filler starts breaking down, you can return to Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek for maintenance treatments.
