Reflections of a Younger You

Pssstttt … Hey, you … Yes, you.  Over here.  Look up. It’s me … your reflection.
I’m hanging out here in the mirror watching you check yourself.

Vollure before and afterI see you every day. You brush your teeth, wash your face, fix your hair and put on makeup. Sometimes you smile at your handiwork and it makes me smile, too. But, lately, I’ve noticed that you stare at me with this questioning gaze and let out a sigh of disdain. You poke at the “laugh lines” showing after years of working those smiling muscles. Then you lean over really close to me and start inspecting your skin. You bring your fingers up to your cheeks and tug, push, pull and lift, as though you’re trying to pin everything into a new position.

Maybe you’re searching for the reflection I showed you back in your 20s or 30s? Sorry, I don’t do flashbacks … and you don’t really want me to anyway, because I’d have to remind you of all the beauty trends you’ve tried over the years. (Remember that home perm? And the frosted purple eyeshadow? I do. Bless your heart. Oh, and three words: Self. Tanner. Mishap.)

Now, listen to me. I may not be a fairy-tale-quality mirror, but I can guide you over to a magic wand of sorts. Okay, not a wand … a needle. And the team at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery has something brand new in that needle that might work faster than we can sing a chorus of Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.

Close your eyes, count to three and welcome the newest hyaluronic acid injectable filler, Juvéderm VollureTM XC. The Vollure formula is ready to turn the clock back to the hours long before midnight — no swirling glitter, hot-rod pumpkins or cartoon woodland creatures involved. For softening those parentheses around the nose and mouth, THIS is the injection that’ll send you racing back to the ball for a few more waltzes.

The scientists (or should we call them “fairy godparents”) at Juvéderm have developed Vollure especially for the moderate to severe nasolabial folds that occur as part of the aging process. These lines and creases are actually not true wrinkles, though they may appear to be. The loss of volume in that area of the face produces a sagging effect when the delicate tissue hangs more loosely than before. The tissue doesn’t need lifting or tightening as much as it needs plumping. Vollure softens nasolabial folds by adding volume for a subtle, natural-looking improvement which can last up to 18 months.

So, how does it work? Once again, Juvéderm experimented with the capabilities of their proprietary Vycross technology which is also used in Voluma? and Volbella?. Vycross enables the cross-linking together of various strengths of hyaluronic acid — the molecule in skin tissue which forms cushions around cells — producing different blends. For the Vollure blend, lower and higher molecular-weights of hyaluronic acid are combined into a gel that upon injection molds itself into place, gently lifting the skin above it. The gel formula moves with the skin allowing for a completely natural range of facial expressions.

Don’t stand there staring at me and wishing for a better view.

I’ll just wait right here on the wall and see what you have to show me when you get back, kick off your glass slippers and meet me in the mirror.
