Are You Overlooking Your Lips Due to Misconception?

Millions of people get dermal filler treatment every year, and Botox, too. This occurs year after year even though misconceptions could have derailed any of the products we commonly use today. For a few years, the idea that Botox would freeze the face kept many people from getting the skin-boosting treatment they really wanted. Now that it is clear that the professional use of Botox Cosmetic can ease wrinkles without completely paralyzing natural facial movements, patients feel good about their decision to obtain this injectable.

Where we were with Botox several years ago, we seem to be with lip fillers today. We regularly meet people who express that they would like to have fuller, younger-looking lips. These same people stop short when it comes to deciding to have their wish fulfilled. There could be several reasons, including the expectation of pain or outrageous results. Here’s what we want you to know:

Patients are obsessed with Volbella.

Volbella is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler in the Juvéderm family. It has been formulated just for the lips. As such, it contains the smallest particles of hyaluronic acid of all Juvéderm fillers.

Volbella is safe.

In line with all Juvederm products, Volbella is made with hyaluronic acid, the same substance that the body naturally produces to pad joints and keep the eyes from drying out. Hyaluronic acid may sound like a harsh or potentially dangerous substance. It’s not. Even though it is referred to as an acid, it is nothing more than a sugar compound that fills an important role in human physiology. One of the functions of this substance is to facilitate skin moisture and resiliency. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize the water-binding capabilities of hyaluronic acid to plump tissue for a more youthful appearance. Being that it already exists in the body, the hyaluronic acid will not cause an adverse reaction when inserted into the superficial tissue.

Results of Volbella are natural-looking.

Even if you know that lip enhancement with dermal fillers is easily tolerated in terms of pain and that the substances used for this service are safe, you may hesitate. The reason many people do is that they fear their lips will look fake due to the fluid added to them. This doesn’t have to happen. There may be instances in which certain celebrities have gone too far with lip augmentation. That doesn’t have to be you. Volbella is so smooth and soft that it adds subtle volume that doesn’t alter the feel of the lips. Furthermore, because we can see the work of dermal fillers in action while administering treatment, we can tailor treatment to be as delicate as you’d like.

Get the lips you want without fear of looking fake. Call Westerville Dermatology to schedule your Volbella consultation.
