Good news for those who are bothered by those little wrinkles that form around the mouth and long for smoother lips. The Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery is one of the first plastic surgery practices in the Grand Rapids area to be able to offer FDA cleared Juvederm Volbella to help reduce those little lines and offer a little fullness to the lips which is not exaggerated.
Produced by Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvederm, Volbella is a soft, hyaluronic acid filler which addresses fine lip lines around the mouth and provides a subtle smoothness and sheen to the lips. Most other fillers are too thick to be used successfully around the mouth. Although the lip area is sensitive, Volbella contains Lidocaine so most patients tolerate the injections very well. Results are immediate, although as with all fillers, some bruising or swelling may occur. According to Allergan, results from Volbella last for up to a year, although results may vary.
It is important to have an expert injector for filler around the lips and mouth as this area requires particular artistry and finesse for best results. If you are interested in Volbella for fuller, smoother lips, please call Dr. Ringler today to see if Volbella might be a good option for you.
