Smooth and hydrated lips are one of the most sought after aesthetic features. Many patients who seek to enhance their lips are concerned about the results they’ll have. Fuller lips are great for many patients, however there are also those looking to rid themselves of the fine lines around the lips, without adding extra fullness.
Recently, a new dermal filler for has been approved for the treatment of thin lips and wrinkles around the mouth. “Juvederm Volbella® XC was designed to ‘perfect the pout’ by softening fine lines around the mouth and defining the lips without adding significant volume. Volbella is less hydrophilic (less likely to absorb water) resulting in reduced swelling and a more natural result. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture. Studies show that 98% of people who had Volbella injected into their lips reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved and results lasted up to 12 months.
Using Volbella provides a wide range of benefits for patients:
- Erases hard-to-treat “smoker’s lines”
- Accentuate the outline of the lips
- Treat oral commissures (where the corners of the mouth turn down)
- Enhance the “Cupid’s Bow”
- Minimal downtime with less swelling than traditional fillers
- Increased softness and smoothness without significant volume
