JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the newest dermal filler of the JUVÉDERM® family. This innovative injectable treatment is specifically designed to treat the delicate areas around the mouth (known as the perioral area) and enhance the contours of the lips. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is formulated to achieve a soft, smooth, supple look that can last up to one year or more.
The unique hyaluronic acid-based formula of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC offers several advantages that make it ideal for treating specific cosmetic concerns. This newly developed dermal filler is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of the fine vertical lines that can form along the upper and lower lips. These lines are formally known as perioral rhytids and are commonly associated with patients who have a long history of smoking. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is also FDA-approved for lip augmentation for patients who desire fuller lips with subtle, natural-looking results. Clinical studies have shown that the results of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC have lasted longer than any other dermal filler used for these purposes.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC Treatment
Since hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, patients who choose JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC do not need to undergo allergy testing prior to treatment. This dermal filler also contains lidocaine, which is an anesthetic, to help maximize patient comfort during the injections. Depending upon the individual needs and cosmetic goals of the patient, treatment sessions can typically be completed within 30 minutes.
