Juvéderm Volbella Lip Filler: Natural Shine & Plumpness
Juvéderm Volbella XC is a hyaluronic-acid-based injectable that plumps lips and smooths lines for up to a year.
In this article we discuss how Juvéderm Volbella XC works – and why it is the number one lip filler used in our Troy, MI area med spa.
What Is Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler?
The Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler is made using a sugar molecule called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally within the skin, making the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler completely safe for use on our Troy, MI patients
In addition to being one of the safest injectables on the market, the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler is also one of the longest lasting. While other lip fillers usually only last roughly four to six months, results from the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler can last as long as a whole calendar year.
The Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler combines both high-and-low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid into a single, cohesive gel, thanks to special cross-link technology called Vycross. This results the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler creating a lifting effect upon the skin underneath which it is located. In this way, Troy, MI patients who choose the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler enjoy incredibly natural-looking results with minimal swelling. For these reasons, the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler is also idea for filling in laugh lines.
Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler Procedure
The needle used to administer the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler somewhat longer than those used for most other injectables. This allows for board-certified Troy, MI plastic surgeon Dr. Ali to threat the filler through a greater portion of the lip at a time. In doing so, Troy, MI Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler patients are subject to less painful poking and prodding, which in turn means less swelling and bruising. But perhaps most importantly, the longer needle allows for a significantly more even distribution of the Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler solution.
Your lips will be numbed 15 minutes before the injections happened. Additionally, all of the Juvéderm XC products – including Volbella XC – also have lidocaine anesthetic within the formula, for the most comfortable lip filler procedure possible.
Some patients only report feeling a “pinch” while other patients’ have compared Juvéderm Volbella XC lip filler injections to a bee sting. Remember, everybody’s sensitivity is different. But, with that in mind, most patients find the discomfort manageable –and well worth it to get larger, luscious, sexy lips.
Each syringe holds about 0.5 cc. The amount you need will vary with the natural thinness or thickness and shape of your lips –as well as whether you desire a natural-looking plumpness or something more dramatic
The Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler procedure only takes about 30 minutes to complete. The procedure also comes with no downtime; our Juvéderm Volbella XC Lip Filler are able to resume their daily routine as soon as they leave our Troy, MI area medical spa.
