Over time, once full lips can begin to look thin and develop vertical lip lines which add to an aged look. Juvéderm Volbella XC, also known as Volbella, is a product that is specifically designed to add subtle volume to lips and softens the appearance of vertical lip lines without enlarging the size of your lips.
How Does Volbella Work?
Volbella’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component that already exists in your skin. Your skin’s natural HA job is to retain moisture, deliver nutrients, maintain volume, and help the skin appear soft and smooth. Adding Volbella to your lips replaces the natural HA with a modified form of HA which restores their natural look.
Each product in the Juvederm collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA. If you are looking to plump your lips, then a product such as Juvederm Ultra XC is what you may be interested in.
How Long Does Volbella Last?
Volbella has special Vycross technology, a term Allergan, the makers of Juvedarm products, uses to describe the cross linking of both high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules in their products. Vycross allows for greater malleability, movement, and less swelling. Volbella’s unique molecular blend makes it a long-lasting solution for the correction of lip lines and slight volume loss. It can last up to a year, which is six months longer than the typical dermal filler.
Is Volbella Right for You?
Volbella is ideal for patients who want a subtle increase in lip volume and a reduction in fine lines without frequent visits. If you’re looking for natural looking lip volume, contact Dr. Elizabeth Roche at 201-505-1020 for a consultation. We can help you determine if Volbella is the right choice for your aesthetic goals.
