Many people believe that the best, most effective way to achieve a younger look is with a surgical facelift. While this certainly can do wonders for your appearance, a facelift alone is not always enough. Often, people seeking younger looking skin don’t realize that facial volume is as important to a more youthful look.
When we are young, our bodies naturally produce significant levels of substances called collagen and elastin. These proteins are largely responsible for giving young skin a plump, glowing and wrinkle-free look. As we begin to age, our bodies naturally start producing less collagen and elastin. This decline usually leads to sagging jowls and a flat, hollow appearance.
Juvederm Volbella® XC
With age, many women begin to lose some of the fullness and definition they once had in their lips. Many of these women don’t want to undergo a dramatic lip augmentation procedure; they just want to achieve beautiful lips that still look natural. JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is a cutting-edge new injectable that can be used to add subtle improvements in lip shape and volume without unnecessary downtime or discomfort.

Juvederm® Before & After
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that can provide patients with long-term correction to wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds. Approved for cosmetic use in 2006, this product has helped countless patients achieve beautiful, youthful-looking skin. At Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center, we offer Juvederm® Ultra Plus, which can provide patients with six to twelve months of correction to wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.
How Does It Work?
Juvederm® products are formulated with a substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, where it helps bring volume and fullness to the skin. Unfortunately, the amount of hyaluronic acid present in the skin begins to decline as individuals get older, making them more likely to develop wrinkles and fine lines. Juvederm® Ultra Plus works to correct these aesthetic concerns by replacing lost hyaluronic acid and infusing the skin with additional volume, fullness, and definition. It is better suited for filling in fine lines and wrinkles in deeper areas, like the jowls and nasolabial folds.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Each injection session typically takes no more than 20 minutes to complete. Because Juvederm® products are indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, they are often more comfortable to receive similar injectable products. While side effects like redness, pain, tenderness, bruising, itching, and swelling are common, these typically subside within a few days of receiving treatment.
Am I A Good Candidate For This Injectable?
Nearly any patient interested in improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is a potential candidate for Juvederm®. Before undergoing treatment, interested patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this appointment, one of our aesthetic professionals will take into account the patient’s medical history and current state of health to decide if this treatment is right for them.
What is JUVEDERM VOLBELLA®?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is a new lip augmentation treatment that was FDA-approved in June of 2016. This product allows patients to add natural-looking definition, volume, and symmetry to the lips. It can also be used to address wrinkles and fine lines near the mouth. A single injection session of this product can provide patients with subtle results that can last up to one year.
How Does It Work?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is part of the JUVEDERM® line of products. Like other JUVEDERM® products, it is formulated with hyaluronic acid. But what sets JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® apart from other hyaluronic acid based fillers is the way it is created. This product is formulated using VYCROSS™ technology that improves the way hyaluronic acid chains cross-link together. In short, this allows for less product to be used, which means less swelling and discomfort for patients. This also means that patients achieve lip augmentation results from treatment that are always subtle, natural-looking, and long-lasting.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Each JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® treatment takes about 20 minutes to complete and features only a minimal amount of downtime or discomfort. In fact, this product is indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, that makes JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® injections significantly more comfortable than other, similar lip augmentation products.
While side effects like redness, swelling or bruising are common, these typically subside within a few hours of receiving treatment.

What is Juvederm Voluma® Used For?
This particular dermal filler has two primary uses. First, it is used for cheek augmentation and restoring facial fullness in areas that are lacking vitality. Second, it can be used as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. By lifting and sculpting the cheeks, sagging skin around the jowl area will also be lifted and tightened.
Because this hollowness is always most apparent in our cheeks, Allergan® has developed Voluma®, an injectable dermal filler that specifically targets anti-aging and cheek enhancement. We offer this and multiple dermal fillers and injectables at Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center. Call us today to schedule a consultation and learn how Voluma® can benefit you!
How Does Juvederm Voluma® Work?
Unlike other cheek enhancement fillers, Voluma® offers almost immediate results while also providing long-term improvements for some patients. Voluma® is comprised primarily of a molecule called hyaluronic acid, which is another substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a star anti-aging ingredient, and it is capable of binding up to 1,000 times its weight in water to your skin. The injected hyaluronic acid is able to mimic the plumping characteristics of your existing facial tissue because it replenishes the natural levels hyaluronic acid that have broken down with age.
What Are The Benefits Of This Procedure?
One potential benefit of choosing Voluma® is that it is a non-surgical procedure. This means that, while you may be advised to take it easy and be cautious in sunlight, there is almost no actual downtime. This also means that the actual procedure will be relatively quick.
Voluma gel is approved by the FDA, so you can rest assured that it is safe. It also has a relatively short list of potential side effects, and in most people, any side effects are temporary and will subside shortly after healing.
Another reason to choose Voluma® is the fact that you’ll be getting the best of both worlds. Not only will you experience the instant gratification of immediately improved features, but the results typically last significantly longer than other fillers of this type. Some patients even report effects lasting up to two years.
