Who doesn’t love having kissably soft lips? Of course, not all of us were lucky enough to be born with a perfect pout.

Juvéderm Volbella XC is the longest lasting, FDA approved lip filler with results lasting upwards of 12 months. With one injection, you can say goodbye to thin lips and hello to the perfect pout.
Juvéderm Volbella XC is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) lip filler designed to treat thin lips and perioral lines (smoker’s lines) for up to 12 months!
A perfectly plump pout with Juvéderm Volbella XC lip fillers
Lip fillers like Juvéderm Volbella XC are made from a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. Your skin actually depends on HA to maintain its elasticity and flexibility as well as to stay hydrated since HA is excellent at retaining water. As we age, your skin begins to produce less and less HA causing skin to lose its elasticity and create hollow pockets. The gel is injected beneath the skin’s surface to restore lost volume. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring, it’s perfectly safe to use even if you’re nursing or pregnant. So long as you are over the age of 21 and seek to correct thin or thinning lips, anyone is a candidate for Juvéderm Volbella XC injectable fillers. We see patients all the time to treat:
The Juvéderm Volbella XC injection experience at Artemedica
The entire injection process is quite straightforward and fast. Before your injections, Dr. Lacombe or one of our other trained clinicians will provide local anesthesia to ease discomfort. It will take some time for the anesthetic to kick in, but afterwards you should feel minimal to no pain. Your provider will then ease the lip filler under your skin to instantly increase volume. Following your injection, Your provider may massage the treated areas to evenly distribute the lip filler and minimize any bruising or swelling. The whole procedure should take no more than 15-30 minutes depending on the size and scope of the areas to be treated.
If you do feel any discomfort or anxiety before or during your treatment, you can always ask your provider about PRO-NOX.
Recovery after your injection treatment
After your treatment ends, you can return to your daily routine with minimal recovery and very little downtime. Some patients experience swelling, bruising and redness at the injection site(s), but this should dissipate within a few days. If you experience any discomfort, apply an ice pack to the treated areas.
Because Juvéderm Volbella XC is an injectable filler and not a neurotoxin like BOTOX, results are immediate and long-lasting. Typically, results last anywhere from 9 to 12 months, although results vary from patient to patient.
