There are many reasons why people consider lip enhancement. Natural substances that contribute to beautiful skin such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decrease in our bodies as we age. In addition, aging skin is vulnerable to environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress. The result: our lips become thinner, losing their youthful fullness.
The lips are particularly vulnerable as they have an extremely thin outer layer, which becomes progressively thinner as the body ages. Over time, the corners of the mouth may droop, as if you were frowning. The V-shaped area of the upper lip known as the Cupid’s bow begins to flatten out, contributing to the thinning lips. Your lips lose their youthful fullness. Vertical lip lines that can cause lipstick bleed may also begin to appear.
How JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® Can Rejuvenate or Enhance Your Lips
Developed using JUVÉDERM®‘s unique VYCROSS™ technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is designed to result in less swelling and restore lip volume that looks and feels natural. The effect is instant and long-lasting. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is the only HA facial filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment.†** With the addition of lidocaine, a mild anaesthetic, you will also enjoy greater comfort during the treatment.
How does JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® work?
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is made from HA, a naturally occurring sugar found in your body which helps to maintain volume and elasticity in the skin. It is broken down by the body in one or two days and is constantly replaced. However, as we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturizing and plumping effects of HA decrease. For this reason, HA is used in certain aesthetic treatments to help restore lost hydration and improve the skin’s volume and texture.
How is JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® different from other lip fillers?
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is the only HA facial filler clinically proven to last up to a year in the lips with a single treatment.† It is designed to produce less swelling compared to other lip fillers so lip enhancements will look natural, enabling most people to resume normal activities immediately.
How long do the results last and is there any downtime?
Results will be evident immediately. Due to the innovative Vycross (TM) techonolgy, results from Volbella and Volift last longer than alternative fillers used to treat the same areas. Further you can anticipate such minimal swelling and reduced risk of bruising that you can go back to work or go out on the same day as having your lips done!
