New Juvéderm VOLBELLA XC
VOLBELLA is a smooth hyaluronic acid filler excellent for softening lines around the mouth, adding volume to lips, or creating definition to lip lines. VOLBELLA uses a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid than other Juvederm fillers to provide a soft and smooth dermal filler option. VOLBELLA, like other Juvederm products uses VYCROSS technology making it a long-lasting dermal filler option. VOLBELLA contains lidocaine for comfortable injections.
How long does VOLBELLA last?
In clinical trials, VOLBELLA was found to effectively increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth in a majority of subjects for 12 months. VOLBELLA uses VYCROSS technology that blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid and contributes to the duration of the treatment. VYCROSS technology is used in the other Juvederm dermal filler and volumizing products.
Who is a good candidate for VOLBELLA?
Patients who are bothered by the vertical lines that appear above the lips or lines around the lips and mouth are excellent candidates for VOLBELLA. Additionally, patients interested in creating symmetrical lips or adding lip volume, or definition are excellent candidates.
