Smile lines, scientifically known as nasolabial folds, are a common concern for many individuals as they age. These lines, which extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, can deepen over time due to factors such as sun exposure, genetics and the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. While smile lines are a natural part of the aging process, some people may feel self-conscious about their appearance and seek ways to minimize their prominence. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer smile line treatments, including Vollure™ injections.

Juvéderm Vollure™ is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds. Juvéderm Vollure™ is formulated with Vycross® technology, which combines different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to create a smooth, long-lasting gel that provides natural-looking results.

How Juvéderm Vollure™ Works

Juvéderm Vollure™ injections are administered by Dr. Maia during a brief office visit. Before the procedure, Dr. Maia will assess the patient’s facial anatomy and discuss their aesthetic goals to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. The injection sites are typically numbed with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Using a fine needle, the Juvéderm Vollure™ gel is injected into the targeted areas of the face, specifically the nasolabial folds, to add volume and smooth out wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid in Vollure™ attracts and retains moisture, helping to hydrate the skin and improve its texture and elasticity. The results are immediate, with patients noticing a visible reduction in smile lines and a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

Benefits of Juvéderm Vollure™:

Juvéderm Vollure™ is designed to provide natural-looking results that last up to 18 months, making it a durable option for smoothing smile lines and facial wrinkles. Some of the other benefits include:

  • Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, Vollure™ injections require little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
  • Customizable Treatment: Each Juvéderm Vollure™ treatment is tailored to the individual’s unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals, ensuring personalized and precise results.
  • Gradual Degradation: Over time, the hyaluronic acid in Vollure™ gradually breaks down in the body, resulting in a gradual return to the pre-treatment state. This allows for subtle adjustments and maintenance treatments as needed.
  • FDA-Approved: Juvéderm Vollure™ is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, providing patients with confidence in its safety and efficacy.

While Juvéderm Vollure™ is generally well-tolerated, some patients may experience temporary side effects at the injection site, such as redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness. These side effects typically resolve within a few days to a week. It is essential for patients to follow post-treatment instructions and avoid strenuous activities, sun exposure and certain medications that may increase the risk of bruising.

Juvéderm Vollure™ offers an effective and minimally invasive solution for reducing smile lines and restoring a more youthful appearance. With its long-lasting results, customizable treatment approach, and FDA approval, Vollure™ injections provide patients with a safe and reliable option for addressing facial wrinkles and folds, allowing them to say goodbye to smile lines and embrace a more confident, rejuvenated look.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
