At Allure Enhancement Center in Lafayette, LA, we believe that feeling confident about how you look is important, which is why we offer treatments that can help you reverse aging, correct aesthetic imperfections, and enhance your features to achieve your aesthetic ideals. For patients who want to target aging and achieve fuller lips, we offer an effective dermal filler called JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC from the JUVÉDERM collection, which can safely and naturally help patients achieve different goals.
What Is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC Used For?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is one of the fillers from the JUVÉDERM collection designed to reverse volume loss and enhance the features. This particular filler is formulated to naturally and subtly augment the lips. We can inject it into specific areas to treat aesthetic lip imperfections, help patients achieve fuller lips to achieve their aesthetic ideals, or reverse how aging has caused the lips to become thinner over time.
We can also use this filler to smooth perioral lines around the mouth, which are those vertical lines that form due to volume loss and the natural aging process. Additionally, this filler is approved for use in the under-eye area to fill hollow areas and treat dark circles resulting from aging.
How Does It Work?
The filler is made with very small hyaluronic acid particles that mimic the HA particles that the body produces naturally, so you can expect natural results and a safe treatment process. Once we evaluate your desired treatment areas and confirm that this dermal filler is right for you, we can schedule your injection.
What To Expect
When you arrive, we’ll cleanse your skin and then administer the exact amount of products into your lips, around the mouth, or below the eye area as needed per your treatment plan.
Like all of the other JUVÉDERM fillers, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC contains lidocaine, which is a numbing agent that helps promote a comfortable injection experience. It also helps patients remain comfortable in the hours that follow their appointment. Once your treatment is over, you can resume most of your normal daily activities.
When Will I See the Results?
As soon as your appointment is over, you can look in the mirror and see an immediate improvement in your treatment area. If we treat your lips, you’ll notice increased fullness; if we treat perioral lines, you’ll notice smoother skin around the mouth; and if we treat the under-eye area, you’ll notice that those dark circles and hollow areas have disappeared.
Your results will continue to improve in the week following your initial treatment as the filler integrates with the skin. Those results will continue to improve for the first month.
How Long Will My Results Last?
After you undergo your treatment, you can expect your results to last up to one year. All of the JUVÉDERM fillers are long-lasting, including JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, but ultimately, the rate at which your body metabolizes the product will determine how long your results last.
When you start to see changes in your results, all you have to do is call our office and schedule a follow-up treatment, and we can touch up the area with the right amount of filler so that you can maintain your ideal appearance long term.
Can It Be Combined With Other JUVÉDERM Fillers?
One of the benefits of the JUVÉDERM collection is that all the fillers pair well with each other. They all deliver natural and subtle results and can accomplish different cosmetic and aging-related goals.
Fillers That Can Treat the Cheeks, the Chin, and Smile Lines
This family of dermal fillers includes products that can reverse aging by restoring natural volume beneath the skin’s surface or enhancing the features. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is a dermal filler that can enhance the cheeks and reverse age-related volume loss. It can also enhance the chin profile. JUVÉDERM ULTRA XC is a filler that can smooth lines around the mouth, including the different types of smile lines and nasolabial folds.
Fillers For Advanced Aging, the Lips, and Fine Lines
JUVÉDERM ULTRA PLUS XC has a thicker formula to address the more advanced lines around the mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLUX XC can contour the jawline to improve facial structure and definition, and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC can smooth lines around the mouth and naturally enhance the lips.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we can give you more details about the other fillers in this collection so that if you want to add one or several to your JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC treatment plan, you can do so to achieve the most comprehensive results in fewer treatment sessions.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no social downtime after a JUVÉDERM treatment. Dermal fillers are lunchtime injectables because you can schedule your treatment during your lunch hour at work and resume your day once your appointment is over. You’ll be provided with some very specific aftercare instructions that you must follow to ensure the best results. Not following these instructions will interfere with your results.
Important Aftercare Instructions
It’s important that you avoid strenuous activity for the first 24 hours post-treatment and anything that could increase your blood pressure or body temperature, including but not limited to hot tub or sauna use, steam rooms, hot showers, cooking over a hot surface or laying out in the sun.
You must also temporarily discontinue using any blood-thinning supplements or medications before and after treatment. Avoid alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours, as well as sleeping on your face or touching the treatment area. You can expect to receive a detailed list of instructions at your appointment so that you know exactly how to care for the injection areas.
