For Jawline Definition
Juvéderm Volux is the newest dermal filler treatment in the Juvéderm collection that uses a defining gel made specifically for jawline definition. Volux is the first FDA-approved dermal filler for jawline definition. Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery is among the first to offer this innovative treatment.
Poor jawline definition can be a result of genetics, weight fluctuations, aging, or a combination of factors. Dr. Chernoff has helped thousands of patients improve their jawline definition both non-surgically and surgically.
Dr. Chernoff has been extensively trained in jawline definition. He uses multiple modalities to improve patients’ jawlines.
Dr. Chernoff uses the same principles as he performs with the Y-Lift procedure to improve the structural contours of the face. During your consultation, we will discuss all options for jawline improvement along with your goals to help you determine the best treatment plan.
Who Is A Candidate For Volux?
The best candidates for Volux have subtle jowling, an undefined jawline, and are not interested in surgery. Patients with significant jowling or hanging skin will not see significant improvement and may receive better results from alternate treatments.
How Is Volux Different From Voluma Or The Other Juvéderm Dermal Fillers?
Volux is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler formulated to be extra firm. This firmness adds definition without adding bulk. Volux is the firmest of all the Juvéderm dermal fillers.
How Long Does Volux Last?
The longevity of the treatment is based on the amount of Volux used. Each patient and each patient’s treatment plan is different. In the Volux clinical studies, patients experienced noticeable improvement up to 1 year after treatment.
Is Volux Safe?
Yes. Volux is made by Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, and the makers of Botox and all the Juvéderm dermal fillers. Allergan conducts rigorous clinical trials to ensure the safety of its products.
How Is Juvéderm Volux XC Injected?
The procedure is quick and performed safely in the office, by Dr. Chernoff or his specially trained nurse injectors. Dr. Chernoff is a certified injection specialist with over 25 years of experience training other physicians and nurses in advanced injection techniques. The average treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. The length of time required to complete the injections may vary depending on the patient and their specific anatomy.
No anesthesia is required during this minimally invasive procedure, although a topical numbing cream will be applied to the injection site. Additionally, for added comfort, the Juvéderm Volux XC formula contains lidocaine to aid in numbing the treated area. Dr. Chernoff or his nurse injectors will carefully plan where the Volux injections should be made to yield the best results. After injections are made, ice is applied to the area and pressure is placed on the injection site to reduce the risk of bruising.
Following the procedure, patients may experience some slight swelling in the treated area. This is quite normal and temporary. The swelling should subside within one to two hours. Other side effects include mild-to-moderate bruising, especially in patients who bruise easily. Some patients choose to continue to ice the area for a while after the procedure, though it is permissible to return to work immediately for those who wish to do so.
