JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler specially formulated to reduce vertical wrinkles around the mouth (perioral rhytids) and add fullness to the lips. A recent addition to the JUVÉDERM® family of injectable products, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is unique in that it provides smoother, longer-lasting results than other injectable products used for lip enhancement.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a smooth-consistency dermal filler that incorporates patented VYCROSS® technology and a variety of hyaluronic acid molecules to create subtle, lasting volume. These characteristics make JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC ideal for filling wrinkles along the delicate skin around the mouth and creating soft, natural-looking lip enhancement. The innovative properties of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can help maintain volume for a year or more in most patients.
Why Choose JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC provides a long-lasting lip augmentation and rejuvenation option for patients who do not want an overly “done” look. Furthermore, because JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is created with hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, there are no concerns about allergic reactions. Several clinical trials have tested the efficacy and safety of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, and the product has been FDA-approved.
Treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Before your JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC treatment session, one of our facial plastic surgeons, J. David Kriet, MD or Clinton Humphrey, MD, will assess your cosmetic concerns, discuss your goals, and verify that JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the right filler for accomplishing the look you desire. When it is time to begin your treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the targeted areas to desensitize the skin and enhance comfort during the injections. Additionally, the JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC formula includes lidocaine to ease any potential discomfort once the filler has been injected. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is applied to the lips and around the mouth with an ultrafine needle until the desired results have been achieved. Patients sometimes report mild discomfort or swelling; however, these effects tend to dissipate quickly. At our practice, injections are always performed by Drs. Kriet or Humphrey, which allows our patients to benefit from their surgical expertise, artistic skill, and years of injecting experience.
