JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a new FDA-approved injectable filler that naturally and instantaneously adds subtle volume to lips and smooths lip lines for a more youthful full appearance. The new hyaluronic acid (HA) formula results in less swelling than other fillers and has long-lasting results up to a year. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is used to smooth lip lines, which develop with age and features a different cross-linking technology resulting in a softer and more cohesive filler, for smoother natural-looking results that last for a longer amount of time.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is unique because it is the first lip augmentation filler that is FDA approved to address perioral lines, or smoker lines around the mouth. Just like JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC uses the filler technology by Allergan called VYCROSS®, a proprietary filler innovation from Allergan, which yields smooth dermal filler products that also help the product last longer.
You may be a good candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC if you struggle with thin lips and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in your body making JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC safe for adults age 21 and older. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC restores some of the lost hyaluronic acid due to aging in order to softly add volume back into the lips and surrounding skin.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is formulated as a gel, containing Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a substance naturally produced in the body to attract and retain moisture, and when injected, adds natural volume that we lose with age. You can expect minimal discomfort while receiving JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injections for lip augmentation and fine lines containing 0.3 percent lidocaine, which lessens the pain at the injection site. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC’s smooth consistency makes injecting it easy and effortless, decreasing any discomfort during the treatment. We can also add to your comfort with additional topical numbing or ice.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can add fullness to thinning lips, fill ‘smoker’s lines’ (fine lines above the lip), fill in the curved depression running under the eye (tear troughs), and replace lost volume under the eyes (for hollows and shadows) which can make you appear more tired and old. Studies show that 98% of people who had JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injected into their lips reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved and results lasted up to 12 months.
As with all injectable fillers, you may experience some minor swelling and slight redness post-treatment, which should only last a few days to a week if present. Some bruising may also develop at the injection site.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the most recent addition to the collection—tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines, and other areas of subtle correction.
While JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus are all hyaluronic acid-based gels, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is formulated with Vycross technology, which makes its consistency softer and smoother. This unique cross-linking technology (the process of chemically binding the hyaluronic acid’s individual chains to transform them into a gel) offers lasting results that are more specialized to specific areas.
Compared with Restylane® Silk, both fillers give you fuller-looking lips and decrease the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, however, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC lasts up to a year, versus Restylane® Silk, that lasts about six months. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is one of the best options when it comes to adding volume to lips. Silk works better for smoothing out the lips and fine lines.
