Juvéderm Volite/SkinVive: A Staff and Patient Favorite for Skin Rejuvenation
Since introducing Juvéderm Volite in 2018, it has become a popular treatment among both our patients and staff. We’re not surprised by its rising status, given the noticeable, long-lasting results it offers. This post will address some of the most common questions we receive about Volite, detailing what it is, how it works, and why it might be the perfect addition to your skincare routine.
What is Juvéderm Volite?
Juvéderm Volite is an injectable form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a molecule naturally present in our skin that is key for hydration and health. Unlike topical products that wear off quickly, Volite offers smooth, firm, and hydrated skin for up to nine months. It has an impressive ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, providing unparalleled hydration to your skin.
How Does Volite Work?
Starting in our mid-20s, our skin’s natural HA production begins to decline, leading to reduced firmness and a less youthful appearance. Volite addresses this issue by replenishing HA through a series of tiny injections. This helps restore the skin’s natural glow, making it look more youthful and radiant.
Volite vs. Other Injectable Treatments
Volite focuses on replenishing your skin’s HA levels from the inside out, providing thorough hydration and suppleness. In contrast, Botox works by relaxing specific muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and dermal fillers restore lost facial volume using safe gel-based formulas. While all aim to enhance your appearance, they work differently and can be combined in a comprehensive skincare plan.
Is Volite Suitable for You?
One of the most exciting aspects of Volite is its versatility. It’s a great option for almost anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin, especially since the body’s HA production starts to decrease in the mid-20s. The treatment can be integrated into almost any holistic skincare plan.
Areas Targeted by Volite
While the face is usually the focal point for hydration treatments, Volite’s benefits extend much further. The treatment is also ideal for areas frequently exposed to sun and other elements, like the neck, décolletage, hands, and even the body.
Volite boasts a short recovery time, with some patients experiencing minor redness for up to 90 minutes post-treatment. The procedure itself only takes about 15 minutes, and results start to show immediately, becoming fully noticeable within 10 days.
Juvéderm Volite is a versatile, effective treatment for anyone seeking to rejuvenate and hydrate their skin. Its benefits are evident, making it a favorite among our patients and staff alike. If you’re interested in incorporating Volite into your skincare regimen, we’re more than happy to discuss how it can fit into your personalized plan. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
