JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, was recently FDA approved to add volume to the lips and fill in perioral lines. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC gives us luscious kissable lips that we have either lost with time or that we have always wanted. It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler combined with the anesthetic lidocaine to add natural, soft fullness and volume to the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from a substance that is normally found in our bodies. It is a quick and relatively painless procedure that involves little to no downtime, and can make you look years younger instantly. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is injected with a small needle directly into the area requiring correction. This smooth gel immediately fills the wrinkles and folds and can last for up to a year. Some people may experience temporary redness, bruising or swelling for a few days. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is part of a family of HA fillers, including Juvederm Ultra Plus XC®, which is for filling moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on the face; and Juvederm Voluma®, which is for volumizing the cheeks.
Allergen, the company that makes JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, also produces Botox® and Skinmedica®products. Botox® contains a protein, which is injected into certain areas of the face and neck to relax the muscles. Once the muscles are relaxed, the wrinkles disappear giving you a more youthful appearance. It is a quick, almost painless procedure, which can deliver results for an average of 4 months.
Skinmedica® skin care line contains products with antioxidants, such as Dermal Repair cream; growth factors, such as TNS Recovery Complex; and skin brightening compounds, such as Lytera, which keep the skin looking healthy and radiant. Juvederm®, Botox® and Skinmedica® products work synergistically to keep your skin beautiful and youthful.
As with any procedure, make sure to have a qualified professional performing it. Always ask a qualified professional if these procedures and products are right for you. While these treatments are relatively safe, an unqualified person could cause significant damage to your skin and appearance.
