In the last few years, there have been many changes to the way we use dermal fillers based on which areas we are looking to improve in volume and texture, as well as to stimulate lifelong health of the skin. Now there is an option to not only replace lost fullness in the cheeks, forehead and temples, but to enhance the natural contours of the lips. Sometimes, patients don’t realize how thin lips affect facial balance when deciding whether or not to improve other areas, but the effects of aging are soon revealed.
The lips are made of delicate skin that requires constant surface hydration to maintain healthy tissues. But they are also lined with a circular shaped muscle (the orbicularis oris) that we use daily to perform most of our necessary tasks such as eating, drinking, talking, and making a variety of facial expressions. It’s not hard to see the fine lines that appear around the lips as we age - deepened smoker’s lines, vertical lines that extend from the nose, and marionette lines that swing down from the corners of the mouth to the lowest points of the chin.
Volbella Is an All-In-One Dermal Filler
Juvederm has created an ideal solution to focus on adding volume and improving symmetry in the lips using the dermal filler Volbella. This particular dermal filler, designed specifically for the lips, has a few added perks as it also addresses concerns with fine lines and wrinkles around the lip edges. This unique formula was created using a gentler version of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler, which is a dermal filler made to attract water and nutrient building molecules to hydrate and strengthen skin as treatments continue. Volbella allows patients the ability to see immediate results with reduced amounts of the swelling of the lips that can come from an accumulation of water molecules, which isn’t as needed in the lips as it would be in other parts of the face.
The Volbella formula feels smoother with its soft gel consistency creating balanced lip borders as comfortable and natural looking as possible. Our patients can see the results as we inject the lips without having to wait for a reduction in swelling. When patients come into our cosmetic clinic at Metropolitan Dermatology, many of them are concerned about an unnatural result, but with Volbella, patients look and feel amazing. The effects of Volbella last up to one year with just one injection treatment that takes less than 30 minutes.
