The face is usually the first (and most visible!) area to succumb to the effects of aging and sun damage. Facial features lose volume and lines become etched in the skin’s surface. Unfortunately, our lips are not immune to this process. If your once-plump, smooth lips are now looking thin and lined, VOLBELLA XC injections can help.

The latest addition to the popular Juvéderm family of fillers, VOLBELLA XC is specially formulated and FDA-approved to restore lost volume to lips and smooth vertical lip lines for up to one year. Already one of our patients’ favorites, VOLBELLA XC injections can improve lip appearance in a number of ways:

  • Diminish vertical lines along the edge of the mouth (i.e. “smoker’s lines”)
  • Improve symmetry between the upper and lower lip
  • Boost lip volume without “overdoing it”
  • Enhance lip shape

Why VOLBELLA XC is perfectly suited for lip contouring

The lips are one of the more challenging facial features to treat with fillers. Not only do your lips move frequently in multiple directions throughout the day, but the skin around your lips and mouth is very delicate. This not only requires a skilled approach with fillers, but also a filler that is both soft enough to look and feel natural beneath the lips and durable enough to withstand frequent movements. While other fillers offer one or the other, VOLBELLA offers both, thanks to proprietary VYCROSS® technology.

VYCROSS incorporates different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, creating a product that spreads very evenly to smooth fine lines and effectively enhances lip shape and volume for up to 1 year.

Your VOLBELLA treatment in Algonquin

Like all filler injections at our Algonquin plastic surgery practice, VOLBELLA injections take only about 15 minutes to perform, and you may resume normal activities immediately after treatment. After reviewing your concerns and desired results, Dr. Thors will give you a topical anesthetic to numb the lips and ensure your comfort during treatment.

He will inject the appropriate amount of VOLBELLA into specific locations along your lips to achieve optimal symmetry and fullness, as well as smooth fine lines along the lips and mouth. Following treatment, you may experience temporary, mild swelling, bruising or redness at the injection site. Such effects typically resolve within 1 to 2 weeks. Results are noticeable immediately, and continue to improve for several weeks as the filler settles into place and any swelling subsides.
