JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® Info
What JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® lip injections can do for you:
- Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
- Accentuate the border of your lips
- Plump up your lips to make them fuller
- Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is a new dermal filler treatment for the lips and Peri-oral area. Designed not only for gentle restoration of natural looking lip volume, it can also be used for defining lip contours, treating oral commissures, smoothing fine ‘barcode’ lines around the lips and supporting the ‘marionette’ lines down the chin.
How do JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® lip injections work?
Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are commonly seen to last up to twelve months.
What are the typical areas that are treated?
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® lip injections treat lost lip volume, defines lip contours, treats the corners of the mouth that turn down and make you look like you’re sad, smooth’s smoker’s lines and plumps up marionette lines (the lines that go from the corners of your mouth down to your chin).
Can JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatments be combined with other treatments?
As smoker’s lines are difficult to treat, especially if they have been neglected, a JUVÉDERM®VOLBELLA® treatment can be combined with some laser procedures that stimulate collagen and improve the final rejuvenation of the mouth area.
What to expect after a JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatment.
There is virtually no swelling or bruising, so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. You will be provided with an ice pack to take home, which lessens the redness and swelling.
