Juvederm Volbella is the newest dermal filler available for lip enhancement. A member of the Juvederm family Juvederm Volbella is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that binds 1,000 times its weight in water. Juvederm Volbella is specifically designed to enhance the lips. It can enhance the size, shape, and definition of the lips as well reducing lines on and around the lips. Juvederm Volbella uses Vycross technology, like Juvederm Voluma, which allows patients to enjoy their results for a full year. Other fillers last up to six months in the lips. Since Juvederm Volbella is made of hyaluronic acid (unlike Radiesse, Sculptra, or Bellafill), it has a high level of safety because it can be dissolved in the event of an adverse effect.
Subtle Lip Enhancement
Lip enhancement has become very popular recently. However there is also a negative stigma associated with those whose lips are so large that they look fake or swollen, like a duck, or it is obvious that they had work done. While many people desire this type of enhancement, there are many people who desire a subtle enhancement to restore lost volume and shape, providing a youthful but natural appearance. Juvederm Volbella can be used for both types of enhancement. The hyaluronic acid material in Juvederm Volbella is very fine, allowing it to fill in fine lines and define the borders of the lips without making them look to big. At the same time Juvederm Volbella can also volumize the lips if desired. Juvederm Volbella is provided in 0.55 cc syringes. Most other fillers are provided in 1 cc syringes. This allows Dr. Alex to use a small amount of Juvederm Volbella for those who want a subtle enhancement. At the same time two or more syringes of Juvederm Volbella can be used for those wanting even more volume. This allows Dr. Alex to use Juvederm Volbella for a variety of patients with different desires. Everyone’s lips are different and Dr. Alex individualizes each treatment depending on what the patient wants.
