Juvéderm Volbella® XC
in Fargo, North Dakota
The lips are an important part of the face which balance and shape the profile. However, not everyone has full, balanced lips, whether as a result of genetics or volume loss related to aging. Juvéderm Volbella® XC is an injectable option to add subtle volume to the lips and reduce the appearance of lip lines.
Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to restore volume underneath the skin. Although Volbella XC restores subtle volume to the lips, other Juvéderm injectables are specifically-formulated with cross-linked molecules to address other areas of the midface. All Juvéderm injectables that are labeled ‘XC’ contain lidocaine for additional comfort during the injection process.
Over the course of the aging process, the skin begins to lose volume. This is because it becomes inefficient at producing collagen and elastin to maintain the matrix underneath the skin that creates shape and suppleness. Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein found in the skin that retains moisture and keeps the skin youthful. When injected underneath the skin, it can restore volume to the lips, providing shape and filling in fine lines. Volbella XC can be administered at our Fargo office by our expert injectors in one easy treatment session. Overall, this process can take as little as fifteen minutes, depending on your goals and anatomy. Because many patients find the injection process to be uncomfortable, we can supply a topical numbing cream.
Had a great experience here! Knowledgeable staff, great front desk, and even better patient care. All my questions were answered, and options were given. Very up front about costs as well! Highly recommend this place!
After your injection treatment, it can be helpful to ice the lips because they are more sensitive than other treatment areas. You can also expect some swelling and redness, but this usually subsides quickly. Most patients see results immediately after treatment, and Volbella XC can last for up to one year (after which you can opt for another treatment). For best results, Dr. Ness can recommend additional cosmetic treatments to address signs of aging and boost your look. Many patients benefit from other injectable and skincare treatments, as well as products to supplement their at-home care. Our skincare experts can recommend the best in our full, in-house line of products.
