Edmond I. Griffin, M.D., of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA) has been practicing for more than 40 years in Atlanta. I have never experienced, or felt more comfortable, getting a facial filler. Dr. Griffin was extremely thorough in explaining Juvéderm Vollure™ XC to me. He mentioned where he thought I would see the best results and that showed me that he had my best interest at heart.
Juvéderm Vollure™ XC is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler, which has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds in adults over the age of 21. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is one of the few practices in Atlanta that has Vollure XC available.
Before the procedure started, I washed my face and applied a numbing cream for about 20 minutes on the areas of my face that would be injected with Vollure XC.
Dr. Griffin marked the specific areas on my face that he was going to treat, including my nasal folds and lower face where I had hollows. While receiving the filler injections, I could see instantaneous results and volume in my skin. Vollure XC filled in the lines and hollows.
Like other denser facial fillers, Vollure XC is a light gel-based HA facial filler. The HA component holds together well and reduces the chances of swelling because it doesn’t absorb water and can be easily manipulated to smooth out the filler during the injection. You can see immediate results and won’t have lumps and bumps like other fillers. Instead, your face looks smooth and refreshed. Another great thing about Vollure XC is that it is supposed to last up to 18 months!
I would highly recommend Dr. Griffin at DAA, and Vollure XC to anyone wanting immediate results to get rid of your laugh lines, nasal folds, and hollows in your face. You’ll walk out with a refreshed look and it’s totally worth it!
