Volbella was developed specifically for the lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected, using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed to give a soft, natural feel.
The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture and has been found to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth through one year.
“Many of my patients are very bothered by the lines that can appear around the lips, known as perioral rhytids. Additionally, when seeking lip augmentation, patients want a smooth, result that is not drastic” said Dr. David E. Bank, clinical trial investigator and founder of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery.
“Juvéderm® Volbella XC adds fullness to the lips and softens the appearance of the lines around the lips. With Juvéderm® Volbella XC I am able to subtly enhance my patients’ pout,” added Dr. Bank.
“The FDA approval of Juvéderm® Volbella® XC further demonstrates Allergan’s commitment to developing advanced products and technologies that allow healthcare providers to better address evolving patient needs,” said Bill Meury, Chief Commercial Officer, Allergan.
“Additionally, this approval brings to market a product unlike anything that is currently available in the United States. Juvéderm Volbella® XC is formulated with VYCROSS® technology, a proprietary filler technology from Allergan, which yields smooth products that have been engineered to address specific patient concerns such as lip fullness, age-related volume loss in the cheek area, or perioral rhytids,” added Meury.
A study showed that 98 percent of people who had Juvéderm Volbella® with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved; with results lasting up to 12 months.
