Lines and wrinkles that form from years of facial expressions age your face. As skin loses elasticity, the skin around the mouth and eyes are often some of the first areas that lines appear. Juvéderm’s line of hyaluronic acid facial fillers offer a fast and effective way to soften lines by adding volume under the skin. Two popular products are Volbella and Vollure XC, each with its own advantages.
Volbella for Lip Lines
Juvéderm Volbella is a thinner form of the hyaluronic acid gel that is designed to work on fine lines near the surface of the skin. The formula is perfect for filling those vertical lines that appear around the lips or for adding subtle volume to the lips. The smaller molecules in this version allow for a soft and flexible texture that feels natural. The results are immediate and can last up to one year before another treatment is needed.
Using Vollure XC for Smile Lines
Do you have smile lines, which are those curved lines that form from the base of your nose around your mouth? As you get older, these lines can deepen and remain etched even when your face is relaxed. Juvéderm Vollure XC is effective at adding volume to the skin to smooth away these nasolabial, or marionette lines. However, it also allows natural movement when you smile or talk. It can treat smile lines, or marionette lines, and contains lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the injection. Vollure XC is one of the longer lasting Juvéderm products, as it can last up to 18 months.
