Advanced Aethetics, Lopez Plastic Surgery, introduces the newest product in dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, an FDA approved, soft, natural feeling, and long duration injectable, exclusively formulated for lip enhancement. VOLBELLA®, made by Allergan, the company behind the BOTOX® Cosmetic, was approved in Europe in 2011, and is distributed in over 70 countries.
Volbella is a gel made up of VYCROSS®, a customized lighter blend of hyaluronic acids, a natural substance found in our bodies, proven to last up to one year in clinical studies in most patients. This gel is smoother than other dermal fillers making your lips feel soft and look natural.
Patients looking to achieve fuller lips as well as correcting perioral rhytids, wrinkles located around the mouth will see subtle, natural, yet effective results with VOLBELLA®. Thinner lips, upper lip lines, and downturned lip corners can make us appear older and tired. Restoring shape, smoothing the lips and subtly restoring lost volume while correcting fine lines can immediately change the way you look, making you look more healthy and youthful. Injecting JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a minimally invasive and long lasting solution to the aging process.
Similar to other injections, bruising and swelling may occur. However, many patients have reported a reduction of swelling due to the product’s technology. Lidocaine is injected with the filler, numbing the lips temporarily, allowing for minimal discomfort and pain during the injection process.
Patients will see immediate results posts their VOLBELLA® injection. Fine lines and wrinkles will be filled and lips will appear fuller. Patients may also experience some swelling, bruising, mild redness and tenderness at the injection sites. Our medical providers will determine which course of post care is best for you, as well as, recommend a follow up visit to assess the treated area.
