Are you one of the millions of people looking to plump your pout? Fuller lips can give a more youthful appearance to the face and is associated with most people’s perception of health and beauty. Lip fillers, a type of dermal filler that we use here in Phoenix, that serve to enhance lip volume, have been around for decades starting with collagen back in the 1980’s.
That said, not all lips are created equal and dermal fillers for the lips are no different. We’ve all seen the dreaded ‘duck lips’ and other not-so-subtle effects of lip filler gone wrong! So…what is a thin-lipped one to do? Introducing Volbella XC!
This new and improved product from the makers of Juvederm, is made of hyaluronic acid – a natural plumping and hydrating product found in the body, is developed with Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS technology. Vycross improves the longevity of the product and provides for a smooth and natural result.
Since Volbella’s FDA approval late last year, I’ve been using it to provide subtle enhancement to the lips and lip lines along with off-label use in the tear troughs and other delicate areas. I’m finding it to be the perfect option for those looking for natural looking, long lasting, results. Speaking from personal experience with the product, as someone who has “full-enough” lips, but could always benefit from a bit of smoothing and added contour, I’ve fallen in love with the soft and beautiful results I’ve achieved with Volbella XC.
I’ve also found Volbella XC to be the perfect tool for the often tricky-to-treat tear trough region. Previous fillers seemed to either be too hydrophilic, attracting water to the area after a period of time resulting in a ‘boggy’ effect or resulted in an excessive amount of post-treatment swelling despite my use of micro-cannulas for injection. Volbella XC is neither hydrophilic nor does it leave patients swollen after we’ve injected it, so it’s great for those looking for minimal downtime. The results I’ve seen are fantastic with a little product going a long way for correction in this area.
So, if you’re thinking about enhancing your lips, smoothing your lip lines or improving sunken under-eye areas, you may want to consider Volbella XC. I think you’ll be glad you did!
