If you’re currently experiencing thinning lips that no longer match the youthful, plump lips you used to see in the mirror, it’s no wonder you’re frustrated by this development. In fact, you might be in search of a way to restore the shape of your thinning lips. Fortunately, with modern advances, thinning lips are anything but an unfixable issue.
One of the best ways to treat thinning lips is with JUVÉDERM Volbella. If you are at all familiar with lip fillers or lip augmentation procedures, then there’s a good chance you’ve heard of JUVÉDERM. You might have even received JUVÉDERM lip fillers in the past.
In general, lip fillers have been steadily rising in popularity over the past several years. Of course, this isn’t without a good reason. Lip fillers are a fantastic, semi-permanent way to enhance and plump up your lips. With fillers, there’s no need to stress about the impacts of permanent procedure, and there’s no worry regarding whether or not you’re going to be happy with your results decades down the road. In that sense, lip fillers like JUVÉDERM Volbella offer much less risk than other lip enhancement procedures like lip implants.
Better yet, even the most powerful dermal fillers like Volbella come with an especially low risk of complications compared to many other plastic surgery procedures. While a select few individuals will experience minor short-term symptoms like bruising or additional swelling, serious complications are rare when receiving lip fillers. This fact, combined with their impressive effectiveness, has led to dermal lip fillers becoming one of the most popular lip augmentation procedures. Volbella, in particular, is a fantastic solution to plump up thinning lips, returning them to their most kissable state.
What is JUVÉDERM® Volbella™?
JUVÉDERM Volbella is a cutting edge, highly effective option when it comes to dermal fillers. This particular filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance found in healthy lip tissues. JUVÉDERM takes this natural compound and uses it in a medical-grade formulation to plump up your lips so that they’re more kissable than ever before. Volbella is especially effective for those battling against thinning lips.
It’s certainly fair to say that Volbella is a unique dermal filler that has capabilities beyond many other types of popular fillers. Thinning lips aren’t always simple to treat, especially if you are striving for a luscious, natural appearance for your post-filler lips. In that respect, Volbella is the most effective option available, unique is due to the tissue it targets. Specifically, Volbella is designed to target only the peri-oral tissue found around your mouth. This tissue is extremely delicate, and requires a filler designed to look natural beneath such thin skin. The smooth formula offered by Volbella allows patients to experience lips that appear naturally plumped for as long as a year. In addition, Volbella usually doesn’t require frequent touch-ups to look its very best.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Volbella as a safe treatment for thinning lips. Not only can Volbella help to restore the shape of your lips, but, as mentioned, it poses a very low risk of severe complications, especially compared to cosmetic surgery. Despite its unique qualities, the minor risks associated with Volbella are similar to those of many other kinds of lip fillers, including other options offered by JUVÉDERM.
Why Was Volbella Developed?
In societies around the world, plump lips are often viewed as a key part of maintaining a feminine, youthful appearance. For this reason, many women wish to achieve full, kissable lips—a desirable trait for creating the best outward versions of themselves.
Sometimes, a woman is born with a naturally plump pout and may not have always had a desire for dermal fillers. However, all too often, that natural pout doesn’t last forever. As time goes by, even naturally full lips can begin to fade and thin, leaving you with a smile that is noticeably thinner than it once was. This is one of the best times to opt for Volbella, especially if you are already considering trying lip fillers.
It is important to remember that it wasn’t always possible to improve the shape of our lips—at least, not via such a quick and simple procedure. Years ago, the only option for thinning lips were permanent implants. However, not only are implants an overly invasive option for plumping and reshaping lips, they also introduce an intimidating long-term commitment—neither of which you will find with dermal fillers. For that reason, most women prefer not to make the jump straight to lip implants when they are unhappy with the shape of their lips. While permanence may seem appealing to some individuals, it’s important to remember that implants aren’t a decision that should be made on impulse.
Before and After JUVÉDERM® Volbella™
Why Choose Volbella?
So, what are the primary reasons you should opt for JUVÉDERM Volbella lips, rather than turning to other potential lip fillers? As we’ve touched upon, there are a few reasons this particular filler is the best choice. Volbella is a smooth gel injected into the tissues surrounding your mouth, which then helps to reshape and plump up thin lips. The hyaluronic acid contained within Volbella comes in a low concentration that gives a full, natural look.
Further, Volbella takes full advantage of the revolutionary Vycross™ technology developed by JUVÉDERM. Thanks to this impressive technology, Volbella features an especially creamy texture, even more so than many other types of lip fillers. Due to this smooth, fluid texture, Volbella fills much more smoothly than other formulas, leaving patients with an especially natural appearance. As a result, not only will your lips look plumper than ever, but they’ll look as if they’ve always been that way. Women choose Volbella because it doesn’t leave behind lips that are easily identifiable as having received dermal fillers.
How Long Does Volbella Last in the Lips?
Volbella takes on less water than most other formulas, which leads to a better overall result as well as a reduced risk of swelling. The formula also allows Volbella to be gradually absorbed into your body, leading to the need for touch ups to maintain its plumping benefits. Typically, patients can expect Volbella lips to last for a maximum of one year, after which time we recommend yearly touch ups. Of course, as with any dermal fillers, some individuals may require touch ups more frequently than others.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Volbella Filler?
After browsing many JUVÉDERM Volbella before and after images, it is clear that most satisfied patients start out with thin lips. Generally, the best candidates for Volbella dermal filters are individuals with thin (or thinning) lips. However, this isn’t the only criteria worth taking into consideration.
A good candidate for Volbella fillers may:
- Have fine lines surrounding their mouth
- Have a cupid’s bow that, over time, has seemed to flatten out and lose its curved shape
- Have lost some of the lip projection they once had, as a result of aging
- Have noticed a downturn at the corners of their mouth
- Be in good overall health, and not on any blood thinning medications
In addition, Volbella candidates must be over the age of 21. Before committing to the procedure, be sure to examine a number of Volbella lips before and after images. This way, you will be able to keep your expectations realistic. Developing a good sense of what results you can expect from the procedure is essential, whether you’re preparing for a permanent or temporary solution.
The Cost of Volbella
For a cosmetic procedure, Volbella lip filler is extremely affordable, especially compared to the cost of permanent lip implants. Typically, an injection of JUVÉDERM Volbella will cost the patient around $500, with an additional cost each time Volbella is refreshed. It is worth noting that Volbella tends to last longer than many other dermal fillers, which leads to a further reduced cost over time.
