If you’ve ever spent time scrolling through Instagram or browsing through Pinterest, you know that fuller, younger-looking lips are the most en vogue beauty trend right now. From Kylie
Jenner’s lip color line to Angelina Jolie’s classic pout, more women than ever are wondering how to get fuller lips without risking the dreaded “trout pout” or going under the knife.
The Go-To Treatments For Fuller Lips
For lip augmentation, Juvederm and Juvederm Volbella are popular injection options designed to help achieve lip plumping goals. Both fillers contain a hydrating hyaluronic acid gel. Both are formulated to produce natural-looking results that can diminish the appearance of lip wrinkles and lines.
But when it comes to lip augmentation, what’s the difference between Juvederm and Juvederm Volbella?
All About Juvederm
Juvederm was the first dermal filler introduced by its maker, Allergan. Juvederm contains a thicker hyaluronic acid gel mixture, and is primarily designed to increase volume at the injection site. This makes Juvederm a great option for clients looking for fuller lips that look subtle and natural!
Most patients typically need about one to two syringes of Juvederm in order to see ideal results. The procedure lasts about 20 minutes, and results can be seen almost immediately after treatment.
Next Up, Juvederm Volbella
As we age, collagen and elastin within the lips start to break down, resulting in a loss of volume and an increase in those aging fine lines (this process happens much faster if you smoke). Juvederm Volbella is designed to address this issue with a thinner hyaluronic acid gel that immediately fills out those lip lines and wrinkles.
Volbella is the go-to treatment for addressing vertical lip lines; additionally, this injection can give subtle definition to the vermilion border for a picture-perfect pout.
How Many Syringes Will I Need?
Before your treatment at Belle Vie, you’ll be provided an evaluation so we can assess if you’ll need more than one syringe. There are scenarios in which a patient may have a naturally petite lip; therefore, more than one syringe isn’t required.
Most patients opt for one syringe treatment, with a follow-up appointment after two weeks to determine if a second syringe is needed.
