What is Vobella®?
Some women may wish to add subtle volume to their lips; others may want to soften the appearance of the vertical lines above them. Lines such as these are often caused by factors such as sun exposure or repeated muscle movement. At Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we are proud to offer JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® XC— an FDA-approved filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of vertical lip lines for up to 1 year.
What is Juvéderm Vobella® XC
Volbella® is the second extension of the Juvéderm ® line of dermal fillers to specifically target the lips. The first was Juvéderm® Ultra XC. Ultra provides relatively dramatic volume to the lips, some would say showy volume. Volbella® was created to add subtle volume to the lips.
All of the different Juvéderm ® fillers are classified as “natural” fillers. This is because each of these fillers is made primarily from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body whose job is to hydrate and plump the skin. It does this by binding with nearby water molecules.
Candidates for Juvéderm Vobella® XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC may be right for you if you are looking to:
- Add subtle volume to your lips
- Soften the appearance of your vertical lip lines
- Have natural-looking, long-lasting results
Where is Volbella XC Used?
Juvéderm Volbella® XC has a specific target — the lips. When injected into the lips Volbella® returns lost volume. This plumps and fills out thinning lips, but it does so without being over the top. When it adds volume, Volbella® also erases vertical lip lines on the upper lip and the area just above it.

Who is a candidate for Volbella?
An unfortunate part of aging is that our lips thin with age. Some people simply have never been satisfied with the volume or definition of their lips. Others feel as if their lips aren’t defined as much as they would like. Juvéderm Volbella® XC adds subtle volume and shape. It will help define the borders of your lips. Plus, it erases the vertical lines that come from volume loss. Juvéderm Volbella® XC
