JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
For patients interested in rejuvenating the appearance of aging lips with smooth, long-lasting lip augmentation results, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can be an exceptional treatment option. Specially formulated to add subtle lip fullness and diminish the appearance of vertical fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an innovative hyaluronic acid-based gel that outlasts most similar fillers. Plastic surgeon James Matas, MD has incorporated JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC into his offering of injectable treatments to provide his patients with a wide range of effective, minimally-invasive facial enhancement options.
What are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
While there are many hyaluronic acid dermal fillers available for achieving augmentation of the lips, what makes JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC unique? Scientific innovation at Allergan, the manufacturer of all JUVÉDERM® products, enabled developers to improve upon the smoothness and longevity of more traditional lip fillers.. Patented VYCROSS® crosslinking technology and the silky texture of the gel makes JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC ideal for the delicate lip area and more resistant to rapid resorption. Since there is so much movement in the mouth region, lip fillers tend to dissipate more quickly; however, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can last up to a year or more.
Who Is a Candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
Whether you desire a natural definition of the lip border, subtle volume enhancement, or reduction in the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can be an effective, long-lasting solution. The first step in your treatment is always a consultation with Dr. Matas to discuss your cosmetic concerns and treatment expectations. He will examine your lips, discuss your medical history, and ask if you have had any experience with other fillers. If he determines that JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is right for you, he can develop a customized treatment plan designed to achieve your goals.
Treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Before treatment begins, Dr. Matas will apply a topical anesthetic to desensitize the skin during the injections. When the targeted region is numb, he will strategically inject JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC in the appropriate areas to accomplish your cosmetic goals. The JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC formula contains lidocaine (a local anesthetic) to diminish potential discomfort during treatment. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes or less to perform, and patients can generally return to their daily activities right away.
Results with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
Some patients experience mild swelling and occasional bruising after treatment; however, these effects typically dissipate quickly. The majority of patients are very satisfied with the results they achieve with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC. Results generally appear smooth, subtle, and natural. For individuals with visible signs of facial aging, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC provides an excellent option for rejuvenating the lips and perioral area.
