JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR JUVEDERM VOLBELLA?

Virtually anyone who desires non-surgical lip enhancement, as well as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, is a candidate for treatment with Juvederm Volbella. Some patients desire natural, fuller lips while others want to smooth out wrinkles and lines around the mouth (also known as perioral rhytids). Patients with lines around the mouth or a poorly defined vermillion border (the junction of the red lip and white lip) may benefit from improved lip definition. This treatment can be performed safely on patients who desire immediate correction minimal downtime.

WHAT IS VYCROSS TECHNOLOGY THAT IS FOUND IN JUVEDERM VOLBELLA? WHAT MAKES VOLBELLA DIFFERENT?

Juvederm Volbella was developed with VYCROSS technology to deliver a natural look and feel, with results proven to last up to a year according to clinical trials. VYCROSS is 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. Allergan first described this innovative VYCROSS technology in the U.S. in 2013 with the FDA approval of Juvederm Voluma for cheek enhancement for age-related mid-face volume loss. Juvederm Volbella is the latest addition to the Juvederm family.

HOW DO YOU AVOID MAKING MY LIPS LOOKING LIKE THOSE FAKE ‘DUCK LIPS’ THAT I ALWAYS SEE?

Creating a natural appearing lip requires artistry, good judgment, and excellent technique. Unfortunately, there are a number of injectors who produce unnatural, over-injected results. We take pride in creating natural appearing lips.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF LIP ENHANCEMENT LAST?

The results of lip enhancement vary from patient to patient. However, in experienced hands, the results of a lip enhancement should last for between six and twelve months. Some enhancements are seen well beyond a year after treatment.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH A JUVEDERM VOLBELLA TREATMENT?

A specially formulated topical numbing cream is applied for 15 to 20 minutes prior to treatment. Treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to perform. The treatments involve very small needles, and are virtually painless due to the numbing cream and gentle injection technique. Patients may return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

WHEN DID JUVEDERM VOLBELLA GET FDA APPROVAL IN THE UNITED STATES?

Allergan announced on June 1, 2016 that Juvederm Volbella received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids, commonly referred to as perioral lines.  In clinical trials, Juvederm Volbella was found to effectively increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth in a majority of subjects through one year. Juvederm Volbella was first approved in Europe in 2011.
