Juvederm Volbella XC
For years, filler has been injected into the lips to add volume and create better shaped lips. Juvederm Volbella XC is a smooth, crystal-clear hyaluronic acid ( HA) gel containing a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine) that is FDA-approved for lip injections.
In addition to augmenting the lips, Juvederm Volbella XC can also correct wrinkles around the mouth.
Is it safe?
Juvederm Volbella XC is the first FDA-approved injectable for the lips and for perioral lines (also known as smoker lines). It is a safe, effective solution for unhappy people with the look of their lips as well as lines around their mouths. It’s common for patients to develop lines around their mouth as they age, and this is not limited to those who have a history of smoking.
Volbella XC is considered very safe because it is composed of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the human body. It’s also possible to reverse the effects of these injections using hyaluronidase.
How does it work?
Juvederm Volbella XC is a clear gel that is injected directly into and around the lips using an ultrafine needle. Juvederm temporarily plumps the lips for lip enhancement and smooths the appearance of fine lines around the mouth and in adults over 21. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing the pain sensitivity.
Juvederm Volbella XC contains HA, a naturally occurring sugar that is found in the human body. The role of HA in the skin is to help it retain its moisture and softness. Juvederm Volbella XC is manufactured using VYCROSS technology that produces predictable and long-lasting results at the treatment site.

What other services does Coastal Aesthetics offer that might help my skin?
The common uses of Juvederm products include getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. All Juvederm products are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring component found in the skin that keeps it plump and radiant.
Volbella and its sister product Voluma each cross-link higher and lower amounts of hyaluronic acid, which allows Juvederm to tailor the use of their dermal fillers more specifically through each of the types. If you love Volbella, you might want to try Botox or Kybella. These are patient favorites and are made by Allergan, the same parent company that created Juvederm and sets the industry standard for dermal fillers.
Botox is the first and only FDA-approved injectable to make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines temporarily look better in adults. This treatment requires minimal downtime, and you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office. It delivers predictable, subtle results that allow you to still look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the area under the chin to improve your profile. Kybella might be right for you if you’re unhappy or self-conscious about the fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness. This treatment also requires minimal downtime and allows you to return to your daily routine immediately after leaving your specialist’s office.
