Juvéderm Volbella® XC - An FDA-Approved Filler for Lip Enhancement

Juvéderm Volbella® XC is an FDA-approved filler that is used to add volume to naturally thin lips, as well as to smoothen out vertical lip lines to create a more defined, youthful look. Made from hyaluronic acid, this lip filler adds volumes to the lips in a more subtle manner, giving your lips a more natural smooth and voluminous look.

What is Juvéderm Volbella® XC?

Juvéderm Volbella® XC is the latest addition to the collection of Juvéderm fillers. It is available in the form of a smooth, clear gel that contains hyaluronic acid and small quantities of a local anesthetic lidocaine. Each of these two components serves a specific function.

  • Hyaluronic Acid - Naturally found in the human body, hyaluronic acid helps lips retain their moisture and softness, giving a healthy look and feel. As we age, our lips lose their ability to preserve moisture, which in turn leads to loss of firmness and plumpness. Juvéderm Volbella® XC contains hyaluronic acid, which when injected, improves the appearance of your lips by improving their shape and volume.
  • Lidocaine - As a local anesthetic, lidocaine reduces your sensitivity to pain, thereby improving your comfort and minimizing the discomfort caused by the injection of the filler.


What Are the Benefits of Using Juvéderm Volbella® XC?

While there are a number of fillers available that are commonly used for lip enhancement, Juvéderm Volbella® XC truly stands out because of its more subtle, natural results. Best suited for individuals who want to achieve a smoother, plumper look, this FDA-approved filler offers you the following benefits:

  • It improves lip fullness, giving you a plumper pout.
  • It smoothens the appearance of vertical lip lines, as well as the lines around the mouth.
  • It enhances the cupid’s bow in your lips, giving you a gorgeous voluptuous pout.
  • It fills in the corners of the mouth, smoothens upper lip lines, and defines lip contour to offer you a more youthful appearance.


How Is Juvéderm Volbella® XC Different From Other Fillers?

The primary benefit of using Juvéderm Volbella® XC is that it produces more natural results as compared to other fillers used for lip enhancement. The subtler, more natural results of the filler can be attributed to its unique chemical composition. It is formulated using VYCROSS, a filler technology used by Allergan. VYCROSS blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to create a soft, smooth gel that produces the same long-lasting results as other fillers but in a more subtle manner.

Are You a Candidate for Juvéderm Volbella® XC?

You may want to try Juvéderm Volbella® XC for the following reasons:

  • Your lips have lost their smooth, defined look due to aging.
  • You have naturally thin lips and you are tired of using makeup to get a more voluminous pout.
  • You want to correct perioral rhytids (lines that appear around the lips) caused due to smoking or aging.
  • You want to get rid of the downturned lip corners that make you look old and tired.

Juvéderm Volbella® XC is a safe and effective solution to all these problems. However, just like any cosmetic product, Juvéderm Volbella® XC has a few contraindications as well. You should not use Juvéderm Volbella® XC if:

  • You are allergic to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine.
  • You have a history of severe allergic reactions.


How Long Do The Results Last?

While individual results may vary, the results of Juvéderm Volbella® XC lasted for one year in a clinical study conducted by Allergan. After this period, you may require repeat injections to maintain the volume and contour of your lips.

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Before your lip enhancement treatment, your doctor will ask you questions regarding your medical history to determine your suitability for the treatment. In addition to this, you will also be asked to explain your expectations and treatment goals. Based on this information, our doctors will determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for lip enhancement with Juvéderm Volbella® XC.

Before the injection of the filler, the treatment area will be cleaned with an antiseptic. Your doctor will mark the injection site. After the first injection, your doctor will wait a few moments to let the local anesthetic produce its effect. This helps minimize the pain and discomfort caused by subsequent injections. Once the treatment has been completed, your doctor will massage the treatment area to ensure uniform distribution of the product and will apply an ice pack to minimize pain and swelling.

Does It Produce Any Side Effects?

Since Juvéderm Volbella® XC contains a local anesthetic, it does not produce severe pain during the treatment. However, you may experience mild to moderate pain during and after the treatment. Some of the common side effects that patients experience after the treatment include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Lumps/bumps


Are There Any Precautions to Observe After the Treatment?

To ensure a quick resolution of the side effects, it is important that you take the following precautions after your lip enhancement treatment.

  • Prevent exposure to sunlight or intense heat within the first 24 hours after the treatment.
  • Do not perform any strenuous exercises during the first 24 hours following the treatment.
  • In case of excessive swelling and redness, apply an ice pack to the treatment area.
  • Consult with your doctor if you experience any unusual side effects.
