Juvederm Volbella XC - For Lip Augmentation
Juvederm Volbella is the newest hyaluronic acid filler to gain FDA approval. While it gained its FDA approval in June 2016, it has been used in Canada and Europe for several years. Juvederm Volbella is the latest advancement in the trusted family of Juvederm products, and it has been specifically created for treatments to the lips and around the mouth.
Juvederm Volbella is a soft, smooth gel suitable for adding subtle volume to the lips and softening the appearance of perioral lines. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to one year.
WHAT JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC LIP INJECTIONS CAN DO FOR YOU?
JUVEDERM XC injectable gel:
- Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
- Accentuate the border of your lips
- Plump up your lips to make them fuller
- Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC (with lidocaine) is a new dermal filler treatment for the lips and Peri-oral area. Designed not only for gentle restoration of natural looking lips volume, it can also be used for defining lip contours, treating oral commissures, smoothing fine ‘barcode’ lines around the lips and supporting the ‘marionette’ lines down the chin.
HOW DO JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC LIP INJECTIONS WORK?
Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC (with lidocaine) is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are commonly seen to last up to twelve months.
WHY PATIENTS CHOOSE DR. HEKMAT FOR THEIR JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC TREATMENTS?
Dr. Hekmat is an injectable specialist who is considered to be a leading expert in facial fillers. Dr. Hekmat was selected as one of the first offices to obtain Juvederm Volbella. Her vast experience helps her to create more natural, longer lasting results. As one of the top injectors, she customizes treatments for each patient, which often includes a combination of different Juvederm fillers and techniques in order to achieve the best outcomes.
Dr. Hekmat has dedicated her practice to non-surgical facial enhancement (Liquid Face Lifts) and rejuvenation, much of which involves facial fillers.
HOW DO YOU AVOID MAKING MY LIPS LOOKING LIKE THOSE FAKE ‘DUCK LIPS’ THAT I ALWAYS SEE?
Creating a natural appearing lip requires artistry, good judgment, and excellent technique. Unfortunately, there are a number of injectors who produce unnatural, over-injected results. Dr. Hekmat takes pride in creating natural appearing lips, and is sought by patients throughout California for her lip enhancement procedures. Patients regularly travel to Dr. Hekmat from outside of the state as well for their filler treatments.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF LIP ENHANCEMENT LAST?
The results of lip enhancement vary from patient to patient. However, in experienced hands, the results of a lip enhancement should last for between six and twelve months. Many of Dr. Hekmat’s patients even notice some enhancement well beyond a year after treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH A JUVEDERM VOLBELLA XC TREATMENT?
Treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to perform. The treatments involve very small needles, and are virtually painless due to Dr. Hekmat’s gentle injection technique. In fact, Dr. Hekmat is well known for her gentle technique. Patients may return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
