By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM on Juvéderm® Volite
Skin reflects our lifestyle and emotional health which affects us from the outside in.
When our skin is in top condition we feel so much better. But, when our skin deteriorates with stress factors, the elements or even the menopause, it can affect our mood greatly, no matter how well we feel on the inside.

Juvéderm® VOLITE is an innovative injectable treatment designed to improve skin quality for up to 6-9 months.It is a hyaluronic acid which is in a much lower concentration than other dermal fillers which improves skin smoothness, elasticity, hydration and overall quality of the skin.
The current Juvéderm® range (such as Voluma & Volbella) is designed to restore lost volume and fill wrinkles, plumping up the skin. Juvéderm® VOLITE has been specifically designed as a more superficial treatment to improve skin quality on the face, neck, hands and decolletage, by providing deep hydration, improving the elasticity and smoothness of the skin. It also acts as a prevention and protection of the skin from free radicals.
Juvederm® VOLITE is mainly for the purpose of improving overall skin quality, hydration and elasticity, improving the smoothness of the skin on the face, neck, hands and décolletage.

Juvéderm® VOLITE can be used on the whole face, neck, hands and décolletage.
Yes. Both treatments offer an improvement in the hydration, elasticity and smoothness of the skin. Your practitioner will be able to advise which of these treatments is suitable for you.
The results of one VOLITE treatment can last for up to nine months, and the effects of the treatment are immediate and go on improving by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen.
In clinical trials, 91% of patients were more satisfied with their skin, 96% had smoother cheeks after treatment and after 6 months, patients still saw the improvement after the initial treatment. 6,7

There is no downtime and you can resume your normal activities after treatment. Following the treatment, you may experience slight redness, swelling or bruising at the injected area. These effects should not last for more than a week and are easily covered with mineral make up.
You should be able to notice a difference in skin quality almost immediately with optimal results being seen within the first month. Your skin will look smoother and more hydrated in a totally natural way.
Juvéderm® facial fillers are smooth in consistency, making them easier to administer. They all contain a built-in anaesthetic – Lidocaine – making the whole injection process a more comfortable experience. VOLITE is administered via micro-injections (using a very fine needle) into the skin. Our medical practitioners are highly skilled and precise, so you should only feel a slight sting on your skin initially during the injection procedure.
