A bright, beaming smile can quickly become your calling card, but when thin lips and fine lines around your mouth leave you feeling less than radiant, you may find yourself searching for a way to boost your confidence and enhance your lips. For men and women looking for a fuller smile and fewer wrinkles around their mouths, there’s a new product on the market. This revolutionary lip filler treatment is called Juvéderm® Volbella® and it’s giving people across the United States a new reason to put on a happy face.
Introducing Juvéderm® Volbella®
Juvéderm® Volbella® is the most recent addition to the Juvéderm® family of products offered by Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center. Whereas Juvéderm® XC and Juvéderm Voluma® XC are ideal for adding hydration and volume to your cheeks and other facial tissues, Volbella® is uniquely formulated to give your lips the added curves you’ve been craving. Though the changes in the Juvéderm® formula itself are subtle, the results are undeniably impressive.
A New and Improved Approach to Lip Fillers
Juvéderm® Volbella® harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid, a moisture-rich substance that your body naturally produces. As you age, your levels of hyaluronic acid begin to decrease, leading to a loss of firmness and skin that is noticeably less supple. By combining an innovative gel compound with synthetic hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm® Volbella® provides the added volume necessary to recontour your lips and fill in wrinkles while also hydrating your skin for a fresher and more youthful look and feel.
What to Expect From Your Juvéderm® Volbella® Treatment
Treating yourself to the lip-plumping effects of Juvéderm® Volbella® is easier – and far more comfortable – than you may think. Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Catherine Cuite will use a very thin needle to carefully and strategically inject gel wherever you need a little more volume or added shape in and around your lips. The addition of lidocaine makes these injections easy to tolerate, and although it’s recommended that you abstain from strenuous activities or drinking alcohol for about 24 hours after your treatment, you can otherwise resume your normal routine immediately. The possible side effects of Juvéderm® Volbella® are mild; some people experience slight redness, swelling, and/or bruising, but those effects are easy to cover up with makeup and will fade in less than a week.
Does Juvéderm® Volbella® Really Work?
Before being approved by the FDA in June 2016, Juvéderm® Volbella® underwent a series of clinical trials. During one such test, an impressive two-thirds of participants happily reported fuller lips and fewer fine lines. Best of all, the cutting-edge Vycross technology used to formulate Juvéderm® Volbella® produces a smoother, more natural-looking result that can last for up to a year – twice as long as some of the other lip fillers on the market.
