Seeking a way to have plumper lips that still look natural? Juvederm Volbella® is a great option. Not only will it add volume to your lips, but it will also help smooth out vertical lip lines. Volbella® is one of the many trusted and well-loved dermal fillers in the Juvederm family. It gained FDA-approval in 2016.
How Does Juvederm Volbella® Work?
The fillers in this line are hyaluronic acid-based. There are many different fillers on the market that claim to add volume to the lips. What makes Volbella® unique is its Vycross technology, which is something that Allergan, the maker of Juvederm, developed. This technology involves using both high and low weight molecules of hyaluronic acid in order to improve its cross-linking ability. Essentially, this allows for fewer molecules of hyaluronic acid to be used, which results in less swelling. You get beautiful, natural-looking results.
What Can Juvederm Volbella® Do for You?
Vycross technology has proven itself very effective for treating lips. It can add subtle volume, correct any asymmetry of the lips, and reduce fine lines around the mouth. All of this leaves you looking younger and refreshed. This option for lip augmentation has proven itself effective for 12 months and beyond. Follow up treatments when results begin to fade typically require less Volbella® to achieve the same level of improvement.
What to Expect
Sitting down at a consultation is step one in this process. We will discuss your medical history to ensure that this is an appropriate treatment option for you. You will be asked to provide details about the changes you would like to see in your lips. This will allow us to develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.
Juvederm Volbella® has lidocaine in it. This is done to help you stay comfortable during your procedure. If you are still concerned about discomfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied prior to beginning. The treatment area will be thoroughly cleaned and injections administered. Afterward, the area is massaged to help the Volbella® spread evenly. There is no significant downtime associated with this treatment. You will want to refrain from applying makeup for a brief period. Avoiding direct sunlight, saunas, and steam rooms is recommended for a couple of weeks after treatment.
