Volbella for Beautiful Full Lips!
By Miguel Delgado, M.D.
Full lips are a very popular trend in cosmetic enhancements. There are many options available and a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is recommended.
The FDA recently gave Allergan approval to market VOLBELLA for lip augmentation and correction of perioral rhytids, those annoying wrinkles around the lips.
For years, patients have been seeking fuller lips and ways to soften the lines around the mouth with various fillers. VOLBELLA is unlike any other product currently available in the United States.
Juvederm VOLBELLA is a soft, smooth gel formulated with VYCROSS® technology – a blend of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids – which contribute to the gel’s duration. In addition, Juvéderm VOLBELLA® XC has been customized with a lower HA concentration (15 mg/mL), which means less swelling while still providing the long-lasting results healthcare providers expect. VOLBELLA is injected with an ultra-fine needle and contains 0.3% Lidocaine, a local anesthetic which reduces discomfort from the injection.
VOLBELLA injections give a smoother, softer consistency, comparable to the natural feel of your lips. The treatment includes:
• Accentuating the border of the lips
• Smoothing the vertical lip lines (also known as smoker’s lines)
• Making lips fuller and plumper
• Enhancing the cupid’s bow (the mid-upper lip)
Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D. states that several clinical trials showed results lasted through 1 year.
