Volite – Hyaluronic Skin Booster
Relatively new to NZ, Volite is an injectable hyaluronic skin-conditioning treatment which is one of the newest products in the Juvederm hyaluronic rejuvenation range, and is a unique injectable treatment designed to improve skin quality for up to 6-9 months with a single treatment.
It has a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) than other fillers, and is designed to improve skin hydration, smoothness, elasticity and overall skin quality in the face, neck, hands and décolletage.
Do you offer a consultation for Volite?
We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.
How is Juvederm Volite different to regular dermal fillers?
The treatment is designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin, strengthening and thickening the skin. Rather than instant results, optimal results usually visible in the first month.
What type of skin is Volite best for?
Volite is an injectable treatment that improves the appearance and hydration of the skin. It contains 12mg/ml of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid and 0.3% lidocaine hydrochloride. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin. It is a hydrophilic substance, which absorbs water and hydrates our cells. Our body’s production of Hyaluronic Acid decreases from the age of 27 resulting in our skin becoming dehydrated, lack lustre with fine lines and wrinkles.
Volite is best suited for people with significant sun damage, peri-menopausal women or anybody who has poor quality skin.
What does Volite do?
This process doesn’t occur immediately but over a period of 2-4 weeks.
How many treatments of Juvederm Volite do I need before I see results?
In clinical trials, 91% of patients were more satisfied with their skin, 96% had smoother cheeks after treatment, and after 6 months, patients still saw improvement from the initial treatment.
If your skin is severely dehydrated and damaged due to sun or hormonal changes, you can repeat treatments more frequently to boost results.

Does the Juvederm Volite treatment hurt?
Are there any possible side effects of Volite?
Bruising can occur 12-24 hrs after treatment, especially in those taking blood thinners, anti-inflammatories, fish oil and turmeric. Bruising is not harmful and can be covered by makeup and will usually resolve over 2-10 days.
Are there any rare side effects with Volite?
As we are a best practice clinic, all potential side effects will be discussed with you prior to treatment, as a part of informed consent.
