Full, contoured lips are an essential part of a feminine, youthful look. Not everyone is lucky enough to be born with pouty lips that balance the facial features. However, even those of us who love our lips may see them lose volume and shape over time. With age, the lip border can become less distinct, and slowly, fine lines, radiating outward from the lips, may develop. Traditionally, lip augmentation has been used to improve the shape of the lips, but the long-term commitment means the surgical procedure is not for everyone. More recently, various lip injections, while successful, cannot always bring the desired aesthetic results.
JuvedermVolbella® is an injectable filler, designed specifically for the lips and peri-oral area. In only minutes, the noninvasive treatment can shape the lips for a luscious pout. The plumping power of Volbella® will also fill in frustrating lip lines, sometimes referred to as ‘smoker’s lines’, providing a younger appearance, as well as reducing the tendency for lipstick bleeding.
- Plump and contour lips
