Fall in love with your lips: Volbella XC San Diego county

Woman Lips Collagen is a protein that supports the skin and mucosa, giving lips pleasing plumpness. Your body produces less collagen as you get older. Sun exposure also causes this fibrous protein to break down. Activities such as sun bathing, drinking out of a straw, and smoking create permanent creases in the skin around the lips. Therefore, the vermillion border, the line between the pink and skin colored lip is blurred due to the vertical lines that form around the mouth. Volbella XC, expertly administered by Dr. Amanda Lloyd in Encinitas, could be just what you need to love your lips again.

A new solution

In 2016, Allergan announced FDA approval of Juvéderm Volbella XC for use in the lips and perioral rhytids (lines around the mouth). In clinical studies this filler was found to increase lip fullness and soften lines for up to one year.

Hyaluronic acid is a component that occurs naturally in tissues of the human body, especially in the skin. It acts as a sponge, holding many times its own weight in water, keeping skin hydrated internally. Volbella XC joins the ranks of dermal fillers that harness the impressive plumping potential of HA – with three beautiful differences:

  • Volbella is specially formulated with smaller particles in a soft gel, to add subtle, natural-looking volume to lips.
  • In addition to plumping and defining lips, Volbella XC smooths lines around the mouth.
  • This filler is infused with a numbing agent, to ease the pinch of injections in this sensitive area.

Who adores Volbella?

Volbella is quickly gaining popularity with women who have noticeable lines around their mouth. Volbella’s gentle augmentation makes it a “gateway” lip treatment for those just beginning to take advantage of cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Lloyd recommends starting a preventive rejuvenation program, including Volbella, at the earliest signs of thinning lips and lines around the mouth.

Volbella XC is just one of the rejuvenation options available at Skin & Vein Institute . To schedule a discreet, personal consultation with Dr. Lloyd, call (760) 642-6674 today.

Do you treat thin lips and sunken cheeks at your practice?
Thin lips and sinking cheekbones are a frequent thing that I see in my office. Unfortunately, time keeps ticking, we get older and sun damages our skin. Because of those changes, our upper lip thins, rolls under and begins to hide, and our cheeks sag down to our chin and become more hollow, creating a joweled look.

How can this be addressed?
We tend to accumulate a lot of volume around the jawline due to gravity, aging and volume loss in the cheeks and temples. Therefore, putting the volume back where it used to be is an important way of making you look more youthful without making you look done, fake or plastic.

Nobody that I treat wants to look that way and I don't want any of my patients to look done or fake.

Why choose a board-certified Dermatologist?
For the cheeks, at this time there is one FDA approved agent called Voluma which is really fabulous and it restores the youthful cheek appearance. For the lips, there are numerous products, and we use Volbella which is very fluid and smooth and works fabulously in the lips.

It is not really the product choice but the doctor choice that is most important. Patients should make sure that they go to a board-certified dermatologist. Unfortunately, there numerous different types of injectors out there some of whom are not trained or learned how to inject.

Call (760) 642-6674 today to schedule a consultation with the Encinitas dermatologist, Dr. Amanda Lloyd, whom you will keep for life.
