Deep wrinkles and furrows may be a part of aging, but they don’t have to be permanent. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm Injectable Gel are a quick and easy solution. They work to erase these lines and restore a younger, more refreshed appearance.
What Is Juvéderm®?
Juvederm® is a safe, FDA-approved formula that lasts up to one year. It contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize the mild discomfort that is sometimes associated with receiving an injection. The injection of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in the skin that adds volume and hydration-is administered directly to targeted areas to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds while also smoothing the skin. It is an effective technique for restoring a youthful plumpness to the skin.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
Juvéderm Volbella ® XC is an FDA approved for adding volume to the lips, but they differ in their approach. Ultra is intended to visibly plump the lips, adding visible volume. Volbella is subtler. It adds volume that isn’t immediately obvious, and it smoothes the vertical lip lines that come with age.
Would Juvéderm Volbella ® XC Be Right For Me?
If your lips are thinner than you’d like, either due to the volume loss that comes with aging or because they’ve always been that way, Juvéderm Volbella ® XC is perfect for adding subtle volume and shape. Plus, it erases the vertical lines that come from volume loss. Juvéderm Volbella ® XC does this without overtly enlarging the lips.
Juvéderm Volbella ® XC is a hyaluronic acid filler (as are all the Juvederm fillers). It plumps the lips by binding with nearby water molecules to hydrate and fill out the lips. Juvéderm Volbella ® XC results show themselves immediately and will last up to one year.
