Why Are Lips Plump?
Before we get into why Volbella® works, it’s important to understand why lips are plump in the first place. Deep within our skin, there are protein chains called hyaluronic acid (HA). These chains are naturally found within our body, and it’s because of them that our skin is plump and elastic. They do this by attracting water, absorbing it, and staying inflated for an extended period of time.
However, after time, the HA in our skin begins to lose its effectiveness. It doesn’t hold as much water, it deflates easier and it doesn’t replenish itself as quickly. This leaves our lips looking thin and flat. The key to keeping the lips plump and kissable is the return of this HA.
Volbella® is an HA-based dermal filler. By using the same natural ingredient that’s already found within the body, Volbella® can naturally plump the lips, eliminating the fear of fish-face. Volbella® features Vycross technology for even better results. Vycross allows the protein chains found in Volbella® to absorb more water, hold onto it longer and create quicker acting, longer lasting results.
Each dose of Volbella® also comes with the pain-killing ingredient Lidocaine. The addition of this mild anesthetic ensures that your procedure will only be as painful as a tiny pinprick.
What’s the Procedure Like?
Volbella® is a non-surgical, non-invasive option to plump your lips. Because of this, the appointment is done in our offices and without the use of anesthesia. The appointment time depends on how many doses you’re getting, but most are completed in around an hour’s time. The addition of Lidocaine, along with our applied numbing cream, keep pain to a minimum and comfort to a maximum.
Once your appointment is completed, we will go over the steps it takes to care for your lips. It’s a good idea to refrain from putting on makeup in the hours following the procedure, as well as staying out of the sun. You may feel some tenderness and stinging in the treated area, and your lips may swell for a little while. However, these side effects are minimal and only last a day or two. Consult a member of our medical team if you have any questions about side effects and how to care for your new lips.
Plump, kissable lips aren’t just for movie stars and musicians. By using the FDA-approved Volbella®, you’re able to fill out your lips and have the sexy smile you’ve always wanted. Call our office today for your consultation.
