Fuller, softer-looking lips have always been the ideal standard – one only needs to look at starlets of the past and present to see that this is true. From classic stunners like Marilyn Monroe to modern-day celebrities like Kylie Jenner, fuller lips are the dream. Endless numbers of social media sites only seem to emphasize this desire, as many selfies tend to focus on full lips.
Unfortunately, as we get older, lip volume tends to become something that’s harder to maintain. Aged-related volume loss is common in both men and women, as collagen and fat begins to break down within the facial regions. Additionally, consistent lip movements create permanent wrinkles and lines, which can make people look older than their actual years.
If you’re currently dissatisfied with the appearance of your lips, it’s time to introduce yourself to Juvederm Volbella®, a new hyaluronic acid injectable now available at Nowak Aesthetics in Chula Vista, CA. This cosmetic surgery practice is one of the first places to offer this innovative lip augmentation treatment in the greater San Diego area, which is also FDA-approved for the temporary elimination of perioral lines around the lips.
Volbella® – made by Allergan – contains a blend of hyaluronic acid and VYCROSS proprietary filler technology. This unique filler combination yields smoother results than any lip augmentation procedure on the market today. The softer weight of the hyaluronic acid gel creates subtle to dramatic lip enhancement (depending on your aesthetic goals and lip structure), while instant volumization fills out perioral lines and wrinkles that are caused by aged-related volume loss. Volbella® is ideal for candidates looking for natural looking lip enhancement without appearing too “done.”
Volbella® injections take about 15 minutes to administer, and have little to no downtime. Volbella® also contains Lidocaine, which helps manage any discomfort associated with the treatment. Patients can expect some mild swelling and bruising at the injection site for up to 72 hours. Results from Volbella® injections can last up to twelve months.
Don’t let volume loss and wrinkles keep your lips from looking their best. Schedule a Volbella® consultation with Dr. Eugene Nowak at Nowak Aesthetics in Chula Vista, California today. Nowak Aesthetics also serves the greater San Diego region. Call (619) 651-9651 to learn more.
