For years, Juvederm® has been making a name for itself as a manufacturer of first-class fillers for restoring lost volume at the mid-face. Countless consumers have turned to this brand to fill in their marionette lines, treat aging skin at the jawline, and turn back the proverbial hands of time. In May of 2016, however, the FDA approved a new formula called Juvederm Volbella®. This remarkable injectable can now be used to reshape, redefine, and strategically plump the lips. Best of all, this product can help you get the full, sensuous pout you’ve always wanted while providing incredibly natural-looking results.
Why Juvederm Volbella® is Different
Some of the most basic and commonly used products from Juvederm® are made from a simple, hyaluronic acid-based solution that binds to nearby skin cells and attracts water molecules. As the result of this activity, Juvederm® injectables hydrate the skin from the inside out while giving the treated area a look of fullness and youth. Given the way in which this hyaluronic acid (HA) is structured, and the fact that HA is naturally present within human skin, these injectables are eventually broken down and absorbed within months. Juvederm Volbella®, however, is made using a special, patented, Vycross technology. This means that the HA in Juvederm Volbella® has been carefully cross-linked to allow for maximum longevity.
Cross-linking technologies involve the use of HA molecules of varying sizes. Due to this fact, less water is absorbed by this revolutionary Juvederm® product and thus, we can create the perfect amount of lip fullness, and without fear of giving you the dreaded “trout pout”. Moreover, not only is Juvederm Volbella® perfect for adding volume to the lips, but it can also be injected to correct asymmetrical lips, and to diminish the appearance of perioral wrinkles or “smoker’s lines” around the mouth.
Why Choose Juvederm Volbella®?
Full lips have long been associated with youth, health, and sensuality. A plush and plump-looking pout can be a very attractive facial feature. Unfortunately, for many people, the lips are among the first facial features to show visible signs of aging. As consumers grow older, thinning often occurs in this area. This is especially true for those with a history of tobacco use. For these individuals, Juvederm Volbella® makes it possible to achieve fuller and truly beautiful lips with minimal risk.
Ahead of any Juvederm® procedure, you’ll need to schedule a consultation to discuss your cosmetic goals, medical history, and known allergies. Given that fillers from the Juvederm® brand are largely comprised of a substance that your body already produces, the chances of you having an allergic reaction to this treatment are minimal.
