Juvederm Volbella XC in Los Angeles (Thousand Oaks)

Juvederm Volbella XC is a dermal filler product that is used to increase the volume of your lips and to soften fine lines around your mouth. Juvederm Volbella® XC results in smooth, natural lips that will make your entire face look younger. Juvederm Volbella XC is manufactured by Allergan and was first approved in Europe in 2011. Since that time, Juvederm Volbella XC has been approved and distributed in more than 70 countries. In October 2016, Juvederm Volbella XC was approved by the FDA for use in the United States.

Advantages of Juvederm Volbella

While some fillers may have a granular consistency, Juvederm Volbella XC is manufactured using a unique Vycross technology that improves the cross-linking efficiency of the molecules. As a result, lips and lip lines injected with Juvederm Voluma XC have a very smooth and natural appearance. There is less swelling than with other fillers and due to the cross-linking technology used in Juvederm Volbella, the results generally lasts at least one year.

How does Juvederm Volbella work?

As we age, the hyaluron in our body—which provides strength and hydration—decreases, which means that skin volume lessens and wrinkles occur. This is particularly evident around our mouth, where we see wrinkles that are unflatteringly known as “smoker’s lines” and “marionette lines”. In addition, as we age our lips become thinner and the edges less defined. Some women notice that their lipstick bleeds and looks unflattering. The combination of thinning, less defined lips and lines around the mouth can make us look older than we feel.

Juvederm® Volbella XC is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural polysaccharide (sugar molecule) that occurs in the body. When Juvederm Volbella XC injected into the lips, the hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules.

Since each molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, using Juvederm Volbella XC reverses age-related volume loss and can create plump, youthful looking lips. Juvederm Volbella XC is equally effective at reducing lines around the edges of your lips.

Results generally last more than twelve months. Juvederm Volbella XC is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism and disappears without any residue. Juvederm Volbella XC is manufactured using a unique Vycross technology that cross-links molecules and creates a smooth, malleable gel. This new technology combines low and high molecular weight technology, which results in a smooth, natural gel. This advanced formulation is excellent for adding volume to the lips.

Who is a good candidate for Juvederm Volbella XC?

Patients must be in good health, have reasonable expectations for the procedure, and be over 21 years of age. Juvederm Volbella XC cannot be used if you have a bleeding disorder, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. If you have a skin infection (such as a cold sore, pimple, or rash), you must wait until it has healed. Let Dr. Tansavatdi know if you are allergic to gram-positive bacterial proteins or to lidocaine. To prevent bruising, you must avoid taking medications and supplements that prolong bleeding during the week before your procedure.

How is Juvederm Volbella XC administered?

Juvederm Volbella XC is administered using a fine needle. Juvederm Volbella XC contains lidocaine to numb the area and make the injections more comfortable. It is important to use a health care provider with the training and experience to inject fillers in a way that flatters your face and does not make your lips look overdone.

Can Juvederm Volbella be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely. During your consultation, Dr. Tansavatdi will discuss your aesthetic goals and how to best achieve the look you desire. Many of our Westlake Village facial plastic surgery patients choose to combine Juvederm Volbella XC with other procedures to create a more youthful, rested appearance.
