Juvederm Volbella® XC is the newest FDA-approved lip filler, and the first approved filler that addresses fine lines located around the mouth. Its purpose is to fill in these fine lines while adding subtle volume to lips.
With Juvederm Volbella® XC, you can enhance the fullness of your lips while also reducing the appearance of those stubborn fine lines around the mouth (also referred to as perioral rhytids, or lines).* It’s a great option for clients who wish to have the results of lip augmentation without undergoing surgery.
The Benefits of Juvederm Volbella® XC*
A dermal filler, Juvederm Volbella® XC is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in your body. The goal is to restore some of the hyaluronic acid that is lost during the aging process, so that you can have volume back in your lips and the skin that surrounds them. The small particle sizes in the filler allow you to target fine lines without resulting in bulky or puffy areas. The result is full lips that are natural looking with your facial structure.
Juvederm Volbella® XC is also made with VYCROSS® technology, which is a revolutionary filler technology from parent company Allergan. This technology results in smooth, gel-like dermal fillers that have been proven to fill and soften fine lines in patients for up to one year (for optimal correction, you can have a touch up once a month).
Juvederm Volbella® XC is different from other fillers, because it contains a unique blend of different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to provide subtle volume.
What Can I Expect?*
The injection is not painful. Juvederm Volbella® XC contains a small amount of a local anesthetic, so that your treatment is comfortable.
You might experience temporary swelling, tenderness, redness, and itching at the treatment site after an injection of Juvederm Volbella® XC. However, recovery is generally minimal, and you will be able to resume normal activities right away. You should focus on limiting sun exposure and extensive physical activity for the first 24 hours.
Your results will typically last up to one year. One year later, 80% of patients experienced improved satisfaction with their lips, and 75% of patients experienced improved satisfaction with the appearance of vertical lip lines. When treated again after a year, patients need less of the product in order to achieve ideal results.
Am I a Candidate?*
If you have a history of allergic reactions, talk to your medical professional before receiving an injection of Juvederm Volbella® XC. This injection is only approved for patients who are over the age of 21 years, and has not been studied in younger patients. You need to tell your medical professional if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have a history of skin injuries or excessive scarring. Tell your doctor if you are planning on a laser treatment or chemical peel, if you are on immunosuppressive therapy, or if you use medications such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or other blood thinners.
