What is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a new member of the JUVÉDERM® family. This FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is designed to rejuvenate the delicate skin around the mouth as well as enhance the lips. By hydrating the skin and restoring lost volume, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can provide skin that looks smooth, supple, and more youthful.
What is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC used for?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth (also referred to as kissing creases or smoker’s lines). This dermal filler is also a popular option for lip augmentation, and can be used to achieve a more subtle increase in lip volume. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is specially formulated with a smooth consistency to provide exceptionally natural-looking results for those over 21 years of age. Some patients may choose to combine JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC with additional injectable treatments for a more in-depth facial rejuvenation.

How long does the treatment take?
Most JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC sessions can be completed within 30 minutes, depending upon the patient’s customized treatment plan. Oftentimes, our patients will schedule their treatment during a lunch break or between other obligations, since there is typically no downtime needed following a treatment session. To maximize comfort during the process, patients can opt to receive our complimentary topical numbing cream. Please note that the addition of this will add 15 minutes to the total treatment time.
What are the common side effects of treatment?
Most patients will require little to no downtime after treatment with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC. Although some mild swelling or bruising may occur at the injection site, patients typically report that these side effects quickly disappear.
What results can I expect?
Patients typically notice the results of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC immediately after treatment. The lines around the mouth begin to diminish, and the lips take on a fuller, more shapely appearance. The results of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can last for one year or more. To maintain your fuller lips and facial rejuvenation, touch-up appointments with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can easily be scheduled.
