What is Juvederm Volbella® XC?
Juvederm Volbella® XC is a new FDA-approved dermal filler that is approved for adding shape and definition to the lips and for correcting fine lip lines. Volbella® XC is a long lasting, temporary hyaluronic acid filler with results that can last up to one year.
Volbella® is an injectable filler with a thin, soft and smooth consistency that is perfect for creating beautifully shaped, full, kissable lips with a more youthful appearance. The other Juvederm injectable fillers use a hyaluronic acid, as well. But Volbella® uses less hyaluronic acid, and its unique structure treats the very fine lines around the lips.
Dr. Williams, Director of the Rejuva Center, stated, “This is the perfect product our patients have been looking for to smooth out the vertical lines both within the red part of the lip and upper lip lines. It offers them a very natural appearing lip. Our patients are concerned about not looking natural. They are always saying they want a natural look and this product does just that.”

Volbella® is for clients who desire a natural, enhancing lip treatment and the reduction of vertical lines in the lip color and above the upper lip.
