We can help you achieve lips that are fuller, smoother, and more natural looking and feel.
What are Juvederm Volbella XC Lip Injections?
Juvéderm Volbella® XC is designed specifically for the lip area of the face. It is a lip injection, delivered intradermally to soften fine lip vertical lines like lipstick lines and increase fullness to the lips. Volbella is formulated with a special “Vycross” technology to achieve a smoother and longer lasting effect.
Juvederm Volbella is one of the newest Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved lip filler. Volbella is the latest FDA-approved injectable added to the Juvederm family of dermal fillers. Juvederm Volbella is a colorless injectable gel of hyaluronic acid, a natural component in the skin. It includes a small amount of lidocaine for an anesthetic effect, improving the comfort of the injection. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines. Volbella adds more subtle volume to the lips compared to Juvederm Ultra XC. Fillers provide immediate correction with long lasting effects.
How Do Juvederm Volbella XC Lip Injections Work?
The Juvederm Volbella procedure is short and simple, lasting approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Juvederm Volbella is injected under the skin by a fine needle to fill the soft tissue of the dermis, the dense layer of skin beneath the outermost layer of skin. This adds volume and subsequently decreases the appearance of wrinkles. The results from Volbella injections are immediate. However, it may take up to 2 weeks to see your final results. Although correction is temporary, it is immediate and long lasting. Juvederm Volbella injections have been proven to last up to 1 year. With optimal treatment, results may vary. The filler is naturally broken down and absorbed by the body. To continue seeing results patients repeat the treatment yearly to maintain optimal correction. Patients who have repeated the treatment have noticed that less product is needed to achieve their results.
Before & After Juvederm Volbella Lip Injections
What Can I Expect When I Get Juvederm Volbella Lip Injections?
Volbella ® XC delivers a natural look and feel, with results proven to last up to a year. Because it also includes a local anesthetic, you should find it makes the treatment process much more comfortable. Following a filler lip injection, you may experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injected area. These effects should not last for more than a week.
Aftercare and Downtime After Juvederm Volbella Lip Injections
There is no real downtime with Juvederm Volbella lip injections. The aftercare is also quite simple. Most patients resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. However, we do recommend that patients avoid direct sunlight, high temperatures, and exercise for a couple of days after treatment as these activities can have a negative impact on results.
How Do I Schedule a Consultation for Juvederm Volbella Lip Injections
To get started, Dr. Ladie Domondon will have an in-depth consultation with you to understand your needs and what facial features you would like to enhance. She will explain all the options to make sure that your Juvéderm® Volbella treatment meets your expectations.
Who Can Get Juvederm Volbella Lip Injections?
Nearly all adults are great candidates for filler injections. Juvederm Volbella is most commonly used on patients with moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used in lip augmentation as well as facial contour reshaping. Juvederm Volbella has been seen to be most effective for treating wrinkles and folds on the lower third of the face, such as the nasolabial folds or “smile lines”. Studies have shown superior results with Juvederm Volbella compared to collagen-based dermal fillers, as well as the highest level of patient satisfaction.
You might not be a good candidate if you have:
- Severe allergies with a history of anaphylaxis
- Presence of multiple severe allergies
- History of allergies to lidocaine or Gram-positive bacterial proteins
Make sure to tell our medical professional if you have a history of cold sores (oral herpes virus) so that we may add preventive treatment to prevent a breakout.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The most commonly reported side effects with Juvederm injectable gels included injection-site redness, swelling, pain tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching. For Juvederm Volbella XC, dryness was also reported. Most side effects are mild or moderate and lasted 30 days or less
There is also the risk of unintentionally injecting into a blood vessel. This risk is rare, but the complications can be serious and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring.
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
