The new JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, is the latest in hyaluronic acid lip fillers. It has quickly become the preferred choice of our patients who want lip augmentation, but are concerned with “looking natural.”
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is approved by the U.S. FDA for use in the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytids, commonly referred to as perioral lines or “smoker lines,” in adults over the age of 21.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC was found to effectively increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth in a majority of subjects through one year.
The safety and effectiveness of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC has been demonstrated in several clinical trials including the U.S. pivotal study where 168 subjects were treated with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC. A 5-point scale was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the product for lip fullness and a 4-point scale to evaluate the effectiveness of the product for smoothing lines around the mouth.
Approximately two-thirds of subjects treated with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC showed improvement in lip fullness and perioral lines through 1 year. The safety of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC was observed to be similar to that of the control. The most common side effects were temporary responses at the treatment site such as swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness lumps/bumps, redness, pain, discoloration, and itching. Most of these side effects resolved within 30 days.*
