To many women, the size and shape of the lips play a crucial role in their facial appearance. If you are looking to redefine and reshape your lips, you may want to consider Juvéderm VOLBELLA, an injectable filler for lip restoration and augmentation. At Donaldson Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeffrey H. Donaldson and his team are ready to help you restore the life in your lips!
Who Is the Right Candidate for Juvéderm VOLBELLA?
This procedure is ideal for anyone who wants to improve the appearance and fullness of their lips. Those with fine, vertical lines around the lips, sometimes as a result of smoking or using drinking straws, can benefit from this treatment. Also, if you are looking to enhance the cupid’s bow (the dip in the middle of the upper lip), treat lip lines and creases, or just define your natural lip contour, this treatment is right for you. Before the procedure, you will need to consult with your doctor to discuss your unique expectations.
Juvéderm VOLBELLA is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid to add volume to your lips and is used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. It is a single treatment that helps in smoothing vertical creases, improving the appearance of the lip contour, and achieving the right symmetry. VOLBELLA uses Vycross technology to have a cross-linking impact on the gel that is injected into the lips. This treatment can improve the cupid’s bow of the lips and treat marionette lines.
How Does Juvéderm VOLBELLA Work?
This dermal filler contains a hyaluronic acid based gel that helps in plumping the lips. This acid is made naturally in the body, though production slows as you age. It has a moisturizing effect that gives the lips and the face a youthful appearance. After cleansing the treatment area, this gel is injected in different areas of the lips depending on the aesthetic that is being achieved. For lines that are difficult to treat, Juvéderm VOLBELLA can be combined with other laser treatment options to ensure optimum rejuvenation.
What to Expect After Juvéderm VOLBELLA Treatment
After treatment, your physician may advise you to protect your lips with an SPF-based lip balm if you are exposed to the sun. Saunas and steam rooms should be avoided for two weeks. There is minimal risk of swelling or bruising, but you can use an ice pack to relieve swelling should you experience it. Also, it is recommended not to partake in any additional treatments in the lip area for at least one week.
