Patients seek lip enhancement for many reasons. Some of the most common reasons are fine lines, improve the lip shape, offset changes that come with aging such as volume loss and the ‘turning under’ of the upper lip, and a desire for a more voluptuous look. Whatever the reason, a consultation is the first step to determining what will work best for you.
Allergan has produced multiple variations of hyaluronic acids for injection, including Juvederm XC, Vollure, and Volbella. All can be used for lip enhancement depending on the needs of the patient.
- Juvederm Volbella is soft and has good tissue permeability, offering a subtle lip enhancement and is the top filler for small lines around the lips (aka “smoker’s lines”). It can last up to one year. Volbella creates more of a hydrated look instead of a filled look in the lips.
- Juvederm XC is a firmer option but is great in patients that have little structure to their lips and need a firm foundation to build on. It lasts for up to nine months and less filler may be needed in subsequent injections.
- Juvederm Vollure is soft and integrates into the tissue well. It can last for up to one year after injection. It doesn’t swell as much as Juvederm might and is used in multiple areas.
It is very important you seek the care of an experienced, trained professional for your lip enhancement. This is your face, which all will see. Dr. Robinson has years of filler experience, allowing him to bring you the very best results in facial aesthetics.
