Keeping up with all of the latest and greatest anti-aging treatments on the market can be overwhelming, even for those of us in the industry. There seems to be a new laser, skin care product, or injectable treatment every week. Anytime we are approached about offering something new, my first question is always, “What makes this treatment different?” In other words, why would a patient want to experiment with something new, when we already have so many effective options available?
Fortunately, the answer to that question is easy with Volbella XC – the new injectable dermal filler from Allergan, the makers of Botox and the Juvederm line of fillers. Volbella XC is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to smooth the lines around the mouth, commonly referred to as “perioral lines,” as well as to provide a subtle and natural augmentation of the lips themselves. As most people are aware, using dermal fillers to improve these areas is not a new or revolutionary procedure; this has been done for many years using other great hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, Restylane Silk, and Juvederm Ultra. However, the results from these hyaluronic acid filler products have typically only lasted around six months before the wrinkle treatment procedure would need to be repeated. Volbella XC, on the other hand, is the only facial filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment. This is great news for patients in Nashville who love the look they can achieve with a dermal filler, but feel inconvenienced by having to frequently return for touch-up treatments.
Long-Lasting Dermal Filler Effects with Volbella XC
Volbella XC is able to achieve this longevity, yet still maintain natural-looking results, by utilizing Allergan’s proprietary VYCROSS™ technology. VYCROSS™ is an “innovative combination of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid.” This is the same technology that gives Juvederm Voluma XC its long-lasting results, as well. Due to this blending of the different molecular weights, the HA molecules in Volbella XC absorb less water; for patients, this simply means swelling is less likely to occur following the procedure, while the treated skin remains hydrated. Another bonus, we have found that when a dermal filler is formulated to absorb less water, the results from the wrinkle treatment may be apparent immediately following the injections, instead of taking a week or two to cause a noticeable improvement.
