The face may lose volume through aging, illness or weight loss, resulting in a hollow or gaunt appearance. We naturally lose volume throughout the face as we age, and collagen production slows. This is especially true around the temples, cheekbones, eyes, mouth and lips. Juvéderm Volbella XC from Allergan Corporation- the makers of Botox -has been recently approved for “injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults over the age of 21“. What’s more, this filler is said to last as long as 12 months.
Why Juvederm Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella XC uses special technology, known as Vycross. In laymen’s terms, that means that the patented mixture of hyaluronic acid in the Vycross technology creates a more connected gel, which can be molded, effectively, allowing the surgeon to “lift” sunken skin sitting above it. Vollure is firm enough to fill the line, but soft enough to move naturally with facial expression. There are many dermal fillers and treatments available to rejuvenate the face. In addition to the above, advantages of Volbella include:
- It is safe, well-tolerated product with reversible effects and minimal to no downtime
- Non-invasive procedure completed in under 20 minutes
- Contains the thinnest, most spreadable gel-perfect to fill fine lip lines or even smooth the delicate area under the eyes
Are You a Candidate?
Volbella XC is a smooth gel filler that restores volume to the lips and eyelid skin. The best candidates are seeking to improve their lips with lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines”. Ideal patients are those with age-related perioral and periorbital lines that have created a thinning and wrinkled appearance around the eyes and mouth, as well as patients with fairly good skin elasticity and minimal if any sagging of the skin.
