Juvéderm Volbella® XC
When we seek rejuvenation for delicate areas like lips and the area around the mouth, we look for treatments that can offer precision and natural, subtle results. For areas that are so present and noticeable, we want refined results that never give away a hint of cosmetic enhancement. While other treatments for the lips lead to overly artificial looking “duck lips” or fake-looking upper lips, the arrival of advanced dermal filler Juvéderm Volbella® XC has finally given us an option for plumping the lips and reducing perioral rhytids with naturally subtle, simple results.
Perioral rhytids, also known as “smoker’s lines,” are those small vertical lines that appear on the upper lip due to aging. While flat lips aren’t necessarily always caused by aging, fuller lips tend to make people look younger and more alluring. Volbella is an excellent treatment for wrinkles on the upper lip and plumping up the lips because its results are soft and natural-looking. With that incredible formula, you’ll also be able to enjoy your Juvéderm Volbella® XC results for up to a year.
The Science of Volbella
Volbella’s main ingredient is a sugar that’s naturally found in the body known as hyaluronic acid. By hydrating and nourishing the skin, hyaluronic acid is one of the most essential compounds that keeps our skin looking healthy and young. Volbella’s subtle, remarkable results are due to its especially soft gel. Vobella is formulated using the patented VYCROSS technology, meaning Volbella contains hyaluronic acid particles of different weights, allowing the gel to have smoother and softer qualities. Volbella also has a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid, making the gel durable enough to last for months at a time.
