Juvederm Volbella® XC Lip Filler
Increases lip fullness and softens appearance of lines around the mouth through one year
Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® XC with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm® range of facial fillers by Allergan (the maker of BOTOX Cosmetic).
We use this new FDA-approved injection to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of "smoker's lines" around the mouth. It may also be used to fill pitted acne scarring in the face. Unlike other fillers, Volbella blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, which results in less swelling and allows it to create subtle volume that lasts for up to a year.
What Juvederm Volbella® injections can do for you
- Diminish vertical lip lines (aka. smoker lines)
- Accentuate the border of your lips
- Plump up your lips to make them fuller
- Enhance the cupid's bow (the "M" part of your mid-upper lip)
Your Lips and Aging
The skin on your lips is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar and hydrating substance found in your skin. However, as you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume and lines begin to appear around the mouth.
The loss of hyaluronic acid leads to the appearance of wrinkles and the loss of fullness to our lips. As our lips become thinner, they lose volume and lack definition. We can develop vertical, or "marionette", lines around the mouth, which can form at the corners going down to the chin or we can even develop a droop to the corners of the mouth, giving your lips a sad appearance.
How Volbella® Works
Developed specifically for your lips and mouth area, Juvederm Volbella® with lidocaine is a smooth gel with an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year. The innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration. This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are commonly seen to last up to twelve months.
A recent study showed that 98% of those who had lip-filler treatment with Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® reported that their lip appearance goals have been achieved! It has been specially formulated with VYCROSS™ technology to deliver a natural look and feel in the skin and help avoid your lips looking unnatural.
Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® from Allergan, adds definition to the mouth and the outline of the face for non-surgical subtle lip augmentation. Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine helps accentuate your lips and lip borders, plumping them to achieve a naturally fuller and more kissable look. Volbella improves the fullness of your lips for up to 1 year, making it one of the longest-lasting lip enhancement products on the market today. And because it also includes a local anaesthetic, you should find it makes the treatment process much more comfortable.
