JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC received FDA approval in June 2016 for use in the lips for lip augmentation, lip fullness and to soften the appearance of lines around the mouth. During the FDA clinical trial for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, Dr. Lupo was a clinical injector, so she has seen first-hand what an amazing product this is for patients who are bothered by thin, uneven lips or the lines around their lips. The Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology’s cosmetic approach to provide patients with a natural look goes hand-in-hand with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC’s soft, smooth gel, which is perfect for adding subtle volume to the lip area without a drastic change.
Benefit of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC:
- Diminishes vertical lip lines (also known as “smoker's lines”)
- Hydrates and smoothes lips
- Plumps up the lips for natural fullness without distortion
- Enhances the lip border and Cupid’s bow (the "M" part of the upper lip)
How JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC works:JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is formulated with VYCROSS®, a proprietary filler technology combining low and high molecular weights to improve the cross-linking efficiency of the hyaluronic acid (HA) chains. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies used to lubricate joints and eyes, and to keep the skin supple by binding to water molecules in skin cells. As we age, HA decreases leading to drier skin, loss of volume, fine lines and wrinkles.
Applying HA in a smooth gel solution restores moisture and raises lines and folds for a smoother, more youthful appearance. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC’s more effective cross-linking technology allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling as well as improved duration. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment is more tolerable with built-in lidocaine anesthetic.
Dr. Lupo was chosen as a trainer for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC to teach other board certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons in and around the New Orleans area the best practices for this product.
