WHAT IS IT?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, is a dermal filler used in the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids, commonly referred to as perioral lines. In clinical trials, 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.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
VOLBELLA® is formulated with VYCROSS®, 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. VYCROSS blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid which contributes to the gel's duration. In addition, VOLBELLA has been customized with a lower HA concentration (15 mg/mL), while still providing the long-lasting results you expect from the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers.This makes VOLBELLA a soft, smooth gel appropriate for adding subtle volume to the lips and softening the appearance of perioral lines. Allergan first debuted this innovative VYCROSS technology in the U.S. in 2013 with the FDA approval of VOLUMA® XC for age-related mid-face volume loss. Now VOLBELLA is the latest addition to the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers, the number one selling collection of dermal filler products in the world to receive FDA approval.
