Are you noticing lines appearing around your nose and mouth as you get older? If you’re concerned about wrinkles and folds in this area, our Juvederm Vollure treatments at O’Donnell Vein & Laser in Annapolis, MD could be the perfect solution for you.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm Vollure?
As you get older, you’ve likely found more and more wrinkles appearing on your face. This is due to a variety of factors, including a loss of volume. It’s normal for your skin to change as you get older, but these changes can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.
Juvederm is a collection of dermal fillers that target wrinkles on your face. Vollure is specifically designed to target wrinkles and loss of volume around the nose and mouth area. If you have wrinkles on this part of your face and you’re in good general health, then you could be a perfect candidate for this filler.
Why Does Our Skin Change?
The best way to understand how Juvederm products work is by first discussing why you may notice changes in your skin in the first place. Your skin is comprised of different chemicals that help provide it with its fullness and structure. This includes the proteins collagen and elastic as well as a sugar called hyaluronic acid.
In your youth, these chemicals will be plentiful. However, aging compromises your body’s ability to produce them naturally. This results in your skin becoming more prone to damage, as well as a loss of volume overall.
What Does Vollure Do?
All Juvederm products including this one are made with hyaluronic acid as the main ingredient. Since this sugar naturally occurs in the human body, this means that it’s a super safe and effective way to treat wrinkles on your face. It’s designed to fill in the area around your nose and mouth where you may find nasolabial folds, otherwise known as smile lines.
These lines can age your appearance significantly. But when you get this Juvederm product, the filler will add volume back into the area. This will tighten the skin, smoothing it out and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid will also help stimulate your body’s production of collagen, helping to keep your skin firm and elastic.
Who Should Get It?
Because this product’s main ingredient is something that occurs naturally in your body, almost anyone can be a good candidate. It’s non-allergenic, making it an extremely safe option for anyone looking for a solution to the wrinkles, folds, and loss of volume around the nose and mouth area.
However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or you have had negative reactions to fillers like this in the past, then this may not be the right treatment for you. That said, many people may find this treatment beneficial.
You’ve Tried Botox and Didn’t Like It
Botox and related fillers like Dysport can certainly be an effective way to treat issues like wrinkles and folds. However, these products aren’t right for everyone. They act as neuromodulators, meaning that they freeze the muscles under the skin to prevent creasing and smooth out the appearance of wrinkles.
If you’ve given Botox a try but the results didn’t work for you or your body didn’t respond well to the ingredients, then Juvederm products can offer a safe and extremely effective alternative.
You Want Something Long-Lasting
There are many fillers available that only last for a short time. If you’re just looking for short-term results then that might be fine for you. But if you know what you want and you’re looking for something that’s going to last you a long time, then this filler is the perfect option.
You can expect the results of your treatment to last for anywhere between a year to two years. To help your results last as long as possible, make sure you are keeping up with an overall healthy and active lifestyle.
You Want Natural-Looking Results
One of the reasons many people avoid getting fillers is that they’re worried the results won’t look natural. While you may have read horror stories about injectables, that isn’t the norm. Getting your treatment from a reputable and safe clinic where there are trained technicians like ours will help you get the natural-looking results you want.
We’ll inject the product strategically into your desired areas to help make sure that you don’t need to answer any awkward questions about whether or not you’ve had work done once you leave our clinic.
You Want Results Quickly
Some injectables available on the market can take weeks to begin to show results. If you don’t want to have to wait around, then Juvederm products like this one could be right for you.
As soon as you receive your injection, you’ll notice a subtle, natural-looking difference in the way you appear. The product immediately takes up space beneath your skin, smoothing it out and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles. Over the next few days, your results will become even more obvious.
You Want Something Safe
One of the best things about this dermal filler is that it’s not just effective—it’s safe too. Its main ingredient is something that you can find in various parts of your body anyway, including your skin, eyes, and the connective tissues around your joints.
It’s non-allergenic, and each Juvederm product is carefully formulated for safety and effectiveness. All products in the line are FDA-approved. As long as you come to a reputable clinic like ours, you can trust that your experience will be very safe.

Because this treatment is non-invasive, you’ll be able to leave our clinic as soon as your appointment is done. We’ll provide you with instructions on how to manage your recovery, but instructions will be minimal.
