JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
WHAT IS JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is the latest advancement in the JUVÉDERM family of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a soft, smooth injectable gel that adds subtle volume to the lips and defines the lip border by softening the appearance of perioral lines. Natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that give skin structure and fullness gradually decrease as we age and our lips are not immune. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC uses VYCROSS® technology to smooth fine lines surrounding lips and restore fullness. Because it has a lower hyaluronic acid concentration than other injectables, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is less likely to absorb water resulting in reduced swelling and more natural-looking results. It is also the only lip filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment.

WHAT CAN JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC ACHIEVE?
- Smooth the fine, vertical lines around the lips indicative of aging (or smoking), known as perioral lines
- Create more positive contours for a downturned mouth
- Define the natural lip by accentuating the vermillion border (outline of the lips)
- Treat marionette lines (from the corners of the mouth to the chin)
- Enhance “Cupid’s bow” (the dip in the upper lip)
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a softer, smoother gel that makes for an easy injection and it is infused with lidocaine, a common anesthetic, so you'll be particularly comfortable during treatment.
Treatment typically takes 10-20 minutes and results are immediate, although some swelling will subside and your lasting results will be more apparent after several days. Our physician will mark the injection points and use an ultra-fine needle to administer the gel. After the injections, you may experience slight swelling, redness, or bruising, but you are free to resume everyday activities right away.
