JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is an FDA approved prescription filler in the JUVEDERM line by Allergan for use in the perioral rhytids and lips. Patients treated with VOLBELLA® XC have the opportunity to walk away with fuller lips and softer lines around the mouth.
How does VOLBELLA® XC work?
As we age, our skin loses some of its hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in your body that keeps your skin moist and soft, and adds volume. As your HA gradually diminishes, the structure and volume of your skin are also diminished. VOLBELLA® XC is a clear gel that is made with hyaluronic acid. When injected into your lips, it restores the volume to your lips and fills fine lines and wrinkles, just as your natural hyaluronic acid had done.
VOLBELLA® XC is also formulated with Allergan’s proprietary filler technology, VYCROSS®, which balances various molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to support the gel’s duration and stimulate collagen and elastin. VYCROSS® technology also makes the hyaluronic acid gel smoother, resulting in a more natural look and feel. This unique technology means JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC absorbs less water, so there is less swelling than other fillers.
What to Expect
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is injected by your DermaTouch esthetician just under the skin and around the lips using an ultrafine needle. The procedure is relatively quick and easy, it usually takes around 30 to 60 minutes. Your treatment will be individualized, and we will mark the injection sites before gently administering the filler.
The VOLBELLA® XC formula also includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic that improves the comfort of the injection. Some of our patients have minimal swelling at the treatment site, but this usually doesn’t last for more than a few hours.
How Long Will VOLBELLA® XC Results Last?
With Juvederm Volbella, you will see results almost immediately. Of the subjects treated with VOLBELLA XC, two-thirds showed improvement in lip fullness and perioral lines through one year.
What is the recovery time for VOLBELLA® XC?
Immediately after getting your injections, there may be some minor swelling, redness and a slight discomfort at the treatment site. But there is really no recovery time, you can just go back to your work or other activities right after the procedure. We do recommend that you avoid direct sunlight and strenuous exercise for a few days until any swelling goes down.
Can my general physician give me Volbella treatments?
It is very important to get Volbella treatments from a doctor who has been trained and is experienced with dermal fillers. Volbella injections are also more complex to administer than some other dermal fillers.
At DermaTouch we have performed thousands of these procedures and are a recognized “Advanced Injector” clinic. DermaTouch RN are the #1 providers JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC in Houston and one of the top Dermal Fillers providers in Houston.
Is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC for me?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is only to be used on adults who are at least 21 years old. Allergan conducted extensive clinical trials to test its safety and effectiveness. The results showed that Volbella is safe for most people to use.
Some people should not use Juvederm Volbella. If you have severe allergies, including a history of anaphylaxis, you should not use this product. Additionally, if you are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins, Juvederm Volbella treatments are not for you.
VOLBELLA is great for those who are trying dermal fillers in the lip and mouth areas for the first time, because it adds volume, but not quite as much va-voom as thicker fillers can. And even though it’s a thinner product, making it easier to work with, it has still been shown to last for up to a year, similar to thicker fillers.
If you want to improve the appearance or feel of your lips or have lines around your mouth that you want corrected, you are an ideal candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC.
