A common determinant of youth is smooth and well-defined facial features. Lips are typically considered a very important feature on the face, and ranks among the top aesthetic issues that people want to enhance. However, many people are reluctant to choose cosmetic surgery options for an elective procedure such as lip augmentation.
In such cases, a safe and proven non-surgical option is now available, which is called Juvederm Volbella XC injectable dermal filler. The procedure can help a patient achieve the desirable, augmented shape of lips without involving any significant pain or downtime. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Juvederm Volbella to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities.
The FDA has recently approved Juvederm Volbella XC for lip augmentation and for the correction of perioral rhytids, also known as perioral lines, in adults above the age of 21. These lines are commonly called smoker’s lines, which appear vertically above the lip area due to aging and other causes. Loss of facial volume and thinning of lips results in these lines becoming more prominent.
While lip augmentation plastic surgery can be performed to correct this condition, many patients are reluctant to choose it because of the typical risks and challenges associated with a surgery. This is where the newly FDA approved dermal filler, Juvederm Volbella from Allergan, can serve as an effective non-surgical alternative.
In clinical trials, Juvederm Volbella XC was found to increase fullness of the lips and soft the appearance of smoker’s lines in a majority of subjects through one year.
Subtle Lip Enhancement
Although many people are bothered by the appearance of conspicuous perioral lines around the lips, but they do not want a solution that will make the lips look unnatural. They want to restore lip volume, but also want results that are smooth and natural looking, and not drastic. With Juvederm Volbella XC, an expert treatment provider can subtly enhance the patient’s pout.
Patients who want more conspicuous lip augmentation can achieve it with a slightly bigger volume of Volbella injectable gel. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards and his team will customize the treatment according to the specific aesthetic needs of the patient. Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas.
According to experts, with the FDA’s approval for Juvederm Volbella XC, patients now have a product unlike anything that is currently available for non-surgical lip augmentation. The dermal filler gel is formulated with the unique Vycross technology, which is a proprietary filler technology owned by Allergan.
Vycross yields a more consistent and smoother filler gel that can address aesthetic concerns in sensitive areas such as the lips and perioral rhytids. Volbella is based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural occurring substance in the body to support skin structure. Vycross combines different molecular weights of hyaluronc acid in order to increase the effectiveness and durability of the gel.
As a result, even with lower concentrations of hyaluronic acid, patients can still enjoy longer lasting results with Juvederm Volbella XC for lip augmentation.
