Crossing the Vermillion Border with Juvederm’s VOLBELLA

Juvederm has become somewhat of a household name for beauty aficionados in Houston after Kylie Jenner revealed that she uses the brand’s Dermal Fillers to plump up her lips. Specifically, the brand’s new VYCROSS range (which includes products such as Juvederm VOLUMA and Juvederm VOLIFT which MD Aesthetica Houston offers) is currently considered as being top of the line. The newest member of the Juvederm family featuring VYCROSS technology is Juvederm Volbella.


Why does MD Aesthetica carry the Vycross product range from Juvederm?


The VYCROSS line was designed to specifically target certain areas of the face, with VOLBELLA being intended for adding volume to the lips in a gentle manner. The molecular science behind these Dermal Fillers is what sets them apart, and is why VOLBELLA can be considered as one of the best Lip Fillers around depending on the patients goals.


What is Volbella made of?


Like most high-quality Dermal Fillers in the United States, VOLBELLA is made out of a kind of carbohydrate fluid, commonly found naturally in the eyes and joints, known as Hyaluronic Acid.


It acts as a natural cushion and lubricant that is constantly broken down and replaced by the body. As time goes by its effects fade and it is produced less, but that’s an advantage when it’s used for cosmetic purposes, as it allows for customization and doesn’t restrict a patient’s options permanently.


What sets VOLBELLA apart other Lip Fillers at MD Aesthetica?


The patented technology used to make VOLBELLA is where the uniqueness of the product lies. It all comes down to how the Hyaluronic Acid is produced, which in this case required tweaks to be made at a molecular level, in order to alter the weight and consistency of the gel.


In doing so, your MD Aesthetica injector gains greater control over the injecting process, which is made smoother since the gel is easier to push through the syringe, and flows more steadily. Thanks to this, there is far less discomfort for the patient, and because VOLBELLA is so moldable, it becomes simpler to contour the lips and achieve natural looking results which our patients love.


While other brands will have fillers made with 100% high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, VOLBELLA only uses 10% of the latter and 90% of its low molecular weight counterpart interestingly. By ensuring that the gel properties of the VOLBELLA filler are optimized to such an extent, the risk of lumps and bumps is minimized, along with the potential for bruising, or swelling.


The best part is that the effects of this generation of fillers last longer – with our patients reporting results that have spanned over 12 to 18 months.

Dermal Fillers are useful cosmetic tools for those who prefer minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, but their application isn’t regulated, so we advise all our patients to only trust medical professionals to perform such treatments. Nurse Prescribers and Aesthetic Doctors are experts in their field and you can expect them to give advice you on the most suitable treatments for your desired results.
