The aging process affects everyone, and many of the first signs of aging are noticed on the facial region. At the San Francisco Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery, we are committed to pursuing the latest and most authenticated injectables and fillers in the cosmetic industry. We understand that, while many people want remarkable results from a cosmetic procedure, not everyone is willing to go under the knife to achieve them. Juvederm Volbella is the latest injectable filler that has been uniquely designed for the lips and areas around the mouth.
Juvederm Volbella is a sister product of Juvederm®, which also contains Vycross technology in order to produce natural-looking results. Dr. Evan Ransom is a Double Board-Certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who works closely with each patient to achieve their desired results. Juvederm Volbella injections create subtle cosmetic improvements to the lip area by filling in wrinkles and smoker’s lines in order to create a fuller, more youthful pout.
Increase Lip Fullness – Soften Smoker’s Lines
Despite their name, not all vertical lip lines are caused by smoking. These “smoker’s lines” can be caused by the natural aging process, genetics, repetitive lifestyle habits, and smoking. These vertical lines require what is known as a soft approach in order to fill in the lines while still keeping the area at and around the lips natural in appearance.
With Juvederm Volbella injections, the lips are replenished with a special injectable that contains hyaluronic acid. This acid is naturally found in the body as a sugar molecule, which means that the body readily accepts this filler without side effects. Juvederm Volbella can be used to achieve the following results:
- Plump the lips
- Fill in and soften smoker’s lines both above and below the lips
- Define the border of the lips
- Enhance the desired prominence of the cupid’s bow
- Improve the appearance of marionette lines around the mouth
At the San Francisco Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery, we are pleased to offer Juvederm Volbella injections to patients who are concerned with the appearance of their lip and mouth area. We are committed to patient comfort, and patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that Juvederm Volbella contains anesthetic in order to reduce discomfort.
