Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. You’ve gone to major lengths to make sure your teeth stay pearly white, but have you given any love to your lips and the area surrounding your mouth? As you age, the skin on your face loses collagen and elastin. Combined with repetitive movement of facial muscles used to kiss, laugh, talk, smoke, and sip through a straw, fine lines and wrinkles can start to appear as early as your 20s.
Juvéderm Volbella corrects fine wrinkles around the lips, also known as perioral lines, to subtract years from your appearance.* It can also be used to subtly enhance lips that have lost some of their plumpness as part of the aging process.* Before Juvéderm Volbella, this delicate area was difficult to treat, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer this exciting new option to Skinny Beach patients.
Juvéderm Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to add subtle volume and definition to the lips as well as soften the appearance of perioral lip lines.* It’s formulated with VYCROSS®, a proprietary filler technology from Allergan, which allows less hyaluronic acid to be used in each injection. With a smaller hyaluronic acid particle size, we’re able to treat ultra fine lines without “over-filling” the area for a result that looks natural.*
At Skinny Beach, we use a skilled, careful hand to inject the area around your mouth just enough to smooth vertical wrinkles and subtly enhance your pout.* No one will even know you’ve had work done!
If you covet a soft, kissable pout a la Scarlett Johansson but don’t want to spend hours in front of the mirror with a lip pencil and concealer, Juvéderm Volbella may be the perfect treatment for you.* It’s specially formulated to revitalize the delicate area around your mouth for a smile that’s age-appropriate and beautiful – never puffy or overdone.* In particular, Juvéderm Volbella can:
*AS WITH ANY MEDICAL AESTHETIC TREATMENT, INDIVIDUAL RESULTS MAY VARY AND HAVE UNIQUE RISKS AND BENEFITS WHICH MUST BE UNDERSTOOD BEFORE MAKING A DECISION TO UNDERGO ANY TREATMENT AT SKINNY BEACH.
Juvéderm Ultra XC and Juvéderm Volbella are both hyaluronic acid fillers that can be used to enhance the lips. However, Juvéderm Volbella is formulated with VYCROSS®, making it a better option for precise shaping of the lips and filling in fine lines around the mouth.* If you are looking to add considerable volume to your lips, we may recommend Juvéderm Ultra XC.* We’ll advise you on the best treatment for your goals at your consultation.
A typical Juvéderm Volbella treatment only takes about 30 minutes. Since the injections contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic) and use ultra-fine needles, discomfort is very minimal.* If you’re really sensitive to pain, you can request a topical numbing agent before we begin. After treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities.* However, we recommend avoiding direct sunlight, high temperatures, and intense exercise for a few days for the best results.
You’ll notice the wrinkle smoothing, lip plumping effects of your Juvéderm Volbella treatment right away, and results last up to a full year.* Your full results will be visible about two weeks after treatment once any swelling has subsided.*
