Do you desire a fuller more delicious pout but are afraid of looking “filled” or “over-done?” Then Volbella by Juvederm is the injectable for you! Juvéderm Volbella XC, a filler made up of a stabilized form of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule that’s naturally occurring in your skin. The needle we used was longer than a typical injecting needle, allowing Genevieve, our lead RN to thread the filler through a quarter of my lip at a time.
This means less poking and prodding — ultimately less pain — and a more even distribution of the solution. As one of the longest-lasting injectables on the market, it can leave lips plump for up to 12 whole months. (Other lip fillers last about four to six months.)
Juvéderm Vollbella XC also uses a special cross-link technology known as Vycross to hold a combination of both high- and low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid together in a cohesive gel, which remains intact after it’s injected into the skin. In non-plastic-surgeon speak, the mixture of high- and low-weight hyaluronic acid in the Vycross technology means it creates a more connected gel that can be molded, effectively lifting sunken skin sitting above it. Because it’s more connected, you also get the most natural-looking results and less swelling. These benefits make Juvéderm Volbella XC a great fit for filling laugh lines, too.
