If you’ve ever wanted full lips but feared you’d end up with a trout pout, now is the time to reconsider doing something about it.
Allergan, the same company that makes Botox, just launched a new filler created specifically for the lips called Juvéderm Volbella. As with other Juvéderm fillers, Volbella is a hyaluronic acid-based gel enhanced with Lidocaine for pain.
What makes this filler unique is its patented Vycross technology which, through more efficient crosslinking, produces greater lift capacity and longer lasting results. In fact, a company-led study found that over 90% of test patients reported natural looking lips with more than 80% of them still satisfied with their results after one year. Having such a high satisfactory rate after such a long period of time is something to smile about: Previous lip fillers typically last up to 6 months, before your body breaks it up, leaving you with a deflated pout.
Additionally, Volbella is a softer, smoother gel that allows for easier injection. Its lower hyaluronic acid concentration also means that it is less hydrophilic (less likely to absorb water) resulting in reduced swelling and a more natural result. Translation: Goodbye fish lips. Another plus is that Volbella adds a nice silky sheen finish to the lips, a feature that we haven’t seen before in other fillers.
