JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is designed for patients seeking to restore lost volume to thinning lips or treat fine lines near the delicate areas of the mouth (the perioral area). This cosmetic injectable can significantly reduce the appearance of vertical lines between the upper lip and the nose, known as “smoker’s lines” or perioral rhytids. Formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA) and VYCROSS® technology, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an exceptionally smooth dermal filler that can also be ideal for achieving soft and natural-looking lip augmentation.
THE JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC EXPERIENCE
Part of the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is FDA-approved to smooth lines in the perioral area and enhance the contour of the lips for patients.. Since JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is composed of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in the body – no allergy testing is needed prior to injection. Using a very thin needle, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is injected at the target site according to each patient’s customized treatment plan. The dermal filler contains lidocaine to numb the area, which helps maximize patient comfort during the treatment session. Depending upon the patient’s individual goals, the JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC procedure can be completed within 15-30 minutes.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC RECOVERY
Some patients may experience mild tenderness, swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. However, these side effects should resolve quickly if they occur. Most patients experience little to no downtime after treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and can immediately resume their normal activities.
