What is JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a soft, injectable, crystal-clear gel, which is why it feels so natural for the sensitive area around the mouth. It is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that keeps skin moisturized and soft. The VYCROSS® technology used to make the gel produces the smooth, long-lasting results that patients appreciate. If you are interested in adding natural, soft volume to your lips or a smoothing of lip lines, this product performs like no other.

Who is a candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC?

Candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC are women (or men), over the age of 21, who would like to increase the fullness of their lips and/or soften lines around the mouth, using a product that results in a soft, natural fullness. There are several possible contraindications, and, your doctor will discuss your medical history with you before the procedure is performed. Be sure to tell your doctor if you:

  • Are allergic to hyaluronic acid or the lidocaine included in the formula to help anesthetize the treatment site and reduce any pain you might experience from the injections.
  • Are being treated with a therapy that would reduce the body’s immune response, since this could increase the risk of infection.
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding, since the use of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC has not been studied in these instances.
  • If you have a tendency to thick, hard scarring. Studies have not been done, and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC may result in additional scarring.
  • Have a history of pigmentation problems. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC has not been studied in these circumstances, and its use may cause changes in pigmentation at the treatment site.

What can I expect during the procedure?

Your doctor will wait a few seconds after the first lip injection so that the lidocaine can start to work. This will be followed by a series of small injections, until the desired fullness has been reached. Our Marina Del Rey lip injections may be alternated with gentle massage, so that the gel is distributed properly. Finally, a member of the treatment team may give you an ice pack to apply to the area to reduce pain and swelling.

Are there any precautions I need to take?

You will be given instructions, for both before and after treatment, to ensure the most comfortable experience during the procedure and the best, most long-lasting results possible. However, be sure to tell your doctor:

  • If you are taking any blood thinners, ibuprofen, aspirin, or any other medication that could prolong bleeding at the injection site. They may also increase the risk of bruising. Taking these medications is not necessarily a contraindication to being treated with our lip fillers in Marina Del Rey, however, both you and your doctor should be aware of the possible results.
  • If you have plans for any other type of treatment or procedure, such as a chemical peel, after being treated with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC. Such treatments should be carefully scheduled to avoid the risk of inflammation at the injection site.

Additionally, to limit the potential for redness, swelling and/or itching, avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to intense heat or sunlight for the first 24 hours after treatment. You may also need to hold off a bit before applying makeup to the area.

Is the JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC procedure painful?

The lidocaine reduces any pain that might be experienced and, in clinical studies, patients generally reported a pain level of 3, on a scale of 0 – 10. This translates more to discomfort than actual pain, but your doctor can also apply a topical anesthetic to further reduce it if you have concerns.

We have been going to Dr Sarshad & his staff at Cosmetique since 2005. We have used them for Botox, laser hair removal, B-12 IV's and wellness injections, IPL facials and many other things. The staff is fabulous, courteous, kind, friendly and very helpful.

I have been going to Dr. Sarshad at Cosmetique Esthetics for awhile now and have experienced the utmost level of professionalism, care and 100% satisfaction in the myriad of services I have received. Rose is exceptionally caring and kind and Dr. Sarshad takes his time and is so comforting so I never have bruises from injections. Ada, the receptionist, always greets me with a smile and asks if I would like something to drink while waiting for a few minutes. I have now lost 11 lbs from the MJ shot and am exceedingly pleased with the excellent results. I have 4lbs to go and then maintenance. Never felt better in my life. Thank you all for helping me achieve the results I wanted to bc my best new self. I appreciate the extra mile you have gone in all my care, you are the absolute best in your field. Overjoyed I have found you!

Absolutely love this place! The staff is wonderful and friendly. I had several balding spots on my head so I went to Cosmetique for help. The doctor started me off with prp injections for the scalp and believe me, that stuff works!!! My bald spots are almost gone and my hair feels thicket than ever. I couldn’t have had the confidence I have now if it wasn’t for Dr Sharshad and his knowledgeable staff. Plus they will work with you to get you the best bang for your buck! Definitely a must go place for me. I highly recommend it.
