Administering Vollure XC
After your consultation with one of our medical professionals, you will have an in-office appointment for your first Vollure XC injections.Every dosage is personalized for each patient. The area will be cleansed and marked before the syringe goes into the skin. To limit pain, a topical numbing cream can be added to the injection site, however, the medication is mixed with lidocaine for this reason. Patients will feel a small amount of pain, but it can be controlled. After the appointment is over, you should limit heavy exercise, sun exposure, and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
During your consultation, be prepared to answer some personal health history questions to see if you are an ideal patient for this prescription. You may not be a good candidate if you have severe allergies,or a allergy to Lidocaine. You should tell anyone performing laser treatments or chemical peels that you have had the Vollure XC injection as you may risk inflammation in the treatment area.
