JUVÉDERM®VOLBELLA™ XC is a non-surgical alternative for enhancing lip fullness and appearance, as well as reducing the signs of aging around the mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC can also be effective in contouring the lips to transform their shape and overall appearance, leaving you with a soft and natural lip enhancement.
It’s designed to give natural-looking volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines, leaving your pout with a modest plump without appearing overdone. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is intended for adults who are age 21 and over.
What Is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is the first lip augmentation filler that is FDA approved to address fine lines in your lips, and the delicate skin around your mouth.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body which helps maintain volume and elasticity in the skin, and is used in dermal filler procedures to help improve the skin’s volume and texture. It is a versatile and effective injectable that also utilizes Vycross technology to produce more natural results with minimal swelling and bruising, and is one of the newest fillers added to the JUVÉDERM® family that combines different weights of hyaluronic acid.
Am I A Good Candidate For JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is intended for adults who are age 21 and over. If you are frustrated with stubborn wrinkles around your lips, also known as perioral lines or lipstick lines, or if you are unhappy with the appearance or feel of your lips, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC might be a great choice for you.
If you suffer from severe allergies, including a history of anaphylaxis, or are allergic to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins, you should not receive JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC treatments.
How Long Do the Results Last From JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC?
Results vary for each patient, but fillers typically last nine months to a year.
What Should I Expect During JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC Treatment?
An Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery Provider will first conduct an in-depth consultation with you to understand your concerns and determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
During the treatment, we’ll begin by cleaning and preparing your targeted area. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC injections can typically be completed in a 30 to 60-minute office procedure and are administered using a very fine needle for minimal discomfort. Typically, patients report experiencing a small “pinch-like feeling” during the procedure.
After your treatment, you’ll be provided with post-care instructions and should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.
Are There Any Side Effects With JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC?
The most common side effects with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC injections are swelling, bruising, tenderness, redness, pain, and the possibility of discomfort and itching. These are all temporary responses that generally only last a few days.
Is There Any Downtime With JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC?
Recovery time is minimal, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, we do not recommend intense exercise or sun exposure within the first 24 hours after treatment. Aftercare is also very simple and will be discussed with you during your consultation.
