Vollure- Am I A Good Candidate?Vollure- Am I A Good Candidate? Dr. Kjar & Candessa Dr. Kjar & Candessa
Write your story… Without parentheses.
Over time, your skin loses elasticity, which contributes to moderate to severe lines that form around the nose and the mouth. While serums and creams work on the skin’s surface, Juvederm’s Vollure will add volume to the skin to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the subtle, long-lasting results you want!
What causes parentheses lines?
Parentheses lines are known as “static” wrinkles. Static wrinkles are lines that appear even when your face is at rest. This happens over time as your skin loses some of it’s building blocks (hyaluronic acid and collagen), that give your skin its structure.
Can your natural lips lose volume?
Yes, over time, your lips may lose volume and become thin. However, many people seek out lip augmentations with injectable fillers, because they naturally have thin lips and simply desire more fullness.
What is Juvederm Vollure? Where can it be used?
Juvederm Vollure is an injectable form of hyaluronic acid that is used to soften moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to add volume to thin lips. By adding volume to lines and wrinkles, it produces a beautifully subtle and long-lasting result for up to 18 months! The original Juvederm, while it is a fantastic, tried and true product, is proven to last only 1 year.
We are excited to add Juvederm Vollure to our already impressive line of injectables. We want you to experience it the way we have. That’s why we are offering $50 OFF each syringe of Juvederm Vollure purchased this month! Call in and schedule a consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kjar to see if you are a good candidate for Vollure.
What Injectable Is Right For My Age?What Injectable Is Right For My Age? Dr. Kjar & Candessa Dr. Kjar & Candessa
We sat down with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kjar to learn more about the injectables he recommends based off of your age, and the anti-aging concerns he’s able to treat for each demographic.
What injectables are age appropriate for 20-30’s, 30-40’s, 40’s-50’s, 50-60’s+?
Botox works very well on facial lines and can help prevent lines from forming if it is kept up. Lip fullness can be enhanced by Juvederm filler.
All of the above work in this age group.
Facial atrophy and volume loss are starting in some people this age and deep fillers (Voluma & Sculptra) start to be beneficial and helpful
All of the above (30-40‘s) work in this age group.
Usually in this group more people are dealing with sagging and need to consider facelift
In this group, combinations of surgical care and non-surgical treatments are beneficial, including treatments such as facial spot treatment with chemical peels and laser treatments.
What wrinkles (dynamic and static) would benefit from injectables?
Wrinkles of your skin are the result of aging of your skin. The two prominent fibers of your skin are collagen and elastin.
Collagen is the tough fiber that gives your skin strength and this is found mostly in your skin layer called the dermis. Elastin is the fiber that can expand and contract when pulled on. It is like a new rubber band. As you age, your elastic fibers become brittle or breakdown with exposure to sun and dryness and they are also effected by smoking.
Proper care of your skin with moisturizers, prophylactic sunblocks and therapeutic free-radical scavengers like vitamin C serums will maintain and to some degree reverse damages done to your skin by these attacking agents which are damaging the elastin fiber.
In general there are 2 categories of wrinkles you can have. These are static and dynamic wrinkles.
Static wrinkles arise from the breakdown of the elastin fibers of your skin and leave the skin wrinkled (fine or coarse wrinkles) when your face is not moving or is not animated. Superficial fillers work best on this kind of superficial line. Another cause of static lines is a loss of volume to your face either from weight loss or aging. A deep filler like Sculptra or Voluma will help you with this kind of aging.
(Before and After of Sculptra)
Dynamic wrinkles are not present on your face until you use your muscles of expression which create these lines when you frown, smile, cry, etc. They disappear when your face is not animated. They are caused by the action of your muscles under your skin upon your skin and they are usually at a right angle or 90 degrees opposite from the direction of the muscle movement. Botox and other paralyzing injectables work best on this kind of wrinkle or line.
At what point does someone need a facelift instead of injectables?
If you have loose skin and hanging in your jowl or neck area, injectables will not correct these problems.

Is Voluma Right For Me?Is Voluma Right For Me? Dr. Kjar & Candessa Dr. Kjar & Candessa
Wrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
What is Voluma?
As you age, the cheeks may flatten and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface, which provides lift and contour to the cheek area. All injections are performed by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kjar.
What is Voluma Made of?
The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made fom hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
Why Does Volume Loss Matter?
Over time, your face changes in many ways. This is part of the normal aging process, but genetics and environmental factors also play a role. You may notice a change in the appearance of your skin, typically in the form of deepening parentheses lines and wrinkles. But what may be less obvious is age-related midface volume loss.
What Are The Signs of Volume Loss?
Your cheeks may flatten, and the skin may begin to sag.
How Long Does Voluma Last?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC provides natural-looking and long-lasting results that last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
Does It Hurt?
JUVÉDERM® injectable gels labeled with “XC” contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection. Dr. Kjar will also offer you a local anesthetic or ice to help further minimize discomfort.
