What is volite skinbooster?
Juvederm Volite skinbooster is the latest range of hyaluronic acid skinbooster launched by Juvederm. It is an innovative hyaluronic acid product designed to improve skin hydration, skin elasticity, and nourish the skin from the inside out for up to 9 months.
How is the procedure performed?
The Juvederm Volite skinbooster involves a series of micro-injections of long-lasting hyaluronic acid throughout the skin area. The treatment area is first applied with an anaesthetic cream. After considerable anaesthesia has set in, detailed injections of the product using ultra-fine needles are done to ensure correct depth placement of the product throughout the skin. Juvederm Volite is made up of hyaluronic acid molecules mildy cross-linked through the patented Vycross Technology. It absorbs water, and bring deep hydration to the treated areas, as well as conferring elasticity, glow, and firmness.
Is volite skinbooster suitable for me?
Individuals who experience dry skin, fine lines, fine wrinkles, and mild skin laxity on their face, neck and back of hands can benefit from this procedure. Those with good skin who want to preserve their youthful looks may also consider Juvederm Volite as a preventive treatment against skin ageing.
What is the difference between Volite skinbooster and other skinbooster treatments?
Traditional skinbooster injections offered in the market requires 3 injection sessions over a period of 2-3 months, and require a repeat of the whole process within 6 months. On the other hand, Juvederm Volite, through its unique molecular stability, requires only 1 injection session and results can last 6-9 months. This translates to more convenience, lesser downtime, and longer lasting results.
How does it work?
Juvederm Volite is made up of mildly cross-linked hyaluronic acid molecules using the patented Vycross technology. This process leads to a very stabilised form of hyaluronic acid that offers many benefits. Once injected to the correct depth, Juvederm Volite is able to retain moisture effectively by acting as a skin reservoir, attracting water molecules to within its vicinity and binding them inside the skin. The result is a more health and supple skin with shallower lines.
