The loss of facial volume is part of the aging process. Loss of fullness in the lips is common as well. Allergan, the makers of Juvéderm, now offers Volbella XC to augment the lips and soften lines. EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center proudly carries the full Juvéderm dermal filler collection, including Volbella XC.
The advantages of fillers using hyaluronic acid
Volbella XC is a dermal filler. The Juvéderm collection is a group of hyaluronic acid fillers used to add volume to areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already found in our skin. It delivers nutrients, retains moisture and softness, and adds volume. As we age, we lose that moisture and fullness. By injecting a hyaluronic acid filler, youth is restored. The patient gets natural, long lasting results.
What is Volbella XC?
Juvéderm Volbella XC is an FDA approved injectable gel used for lip augmentation in patients 21 years and older. Volbella XC is used to add volume to the lips while softening the perioral, or vertical, lines. Volbella XC is formulated with a specially engineered filler technology using different molecular weights of a hyaluronic acid which contributes to the gel’s lasting effect. Volbella uses a lower concentration of the hyaluronic acid. This helps give patients a subtle, natural fullness.
Key points about Volbella XC:
- Volbella XC is only for the lips. It adds subtle fullness while minimizing vertical lines.
- This product is an FDA approved injectable gel comprised of a hyaluronic acid.
- The effects of your Juvéderm Volbella XC treatment last up to one year.
