Medspa1064 is proud to be one of the first offices in New England to introduce Juvederm Volbella XC, an FDA approved filler for softening the fine lines around the mouth and lips. It has a wonderful effect of giving the lips a slightly fuller and polished look. Juvéderm XC is a great product for lip volume and now we have Juvéderm Volbella XC as an adjunct to a beautifully sculpted, polished and smooth appearing lip. Juvéderm Volbella XC is a finer formulated gel made of Hyaluronic acid that is already present in your skin. As we age we lose some of the plumpness that gives us the youthful look. Juvéderm Volbella XC is specifically formulated to treat those fine lines and restore a natural shape and volume to the aging lip. Dr. J has been artfully and skillfully rejuvenating and creating natural and youthful lips for over 15 years and is certified in Juvéderm Volbella XC.
Come in and discuss your options for a youthful, full and sexy lip. No one will know and we’ll never tell! Juvéderm Volbella XC with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year. A study showed that 98% of people who had Juvéderm Volbella XC with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved; with results lasting up to 12 months.
What Juvéderm Volbella XClip injections can do for you: -Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
-Accentuate the border of your lips
-Plump up your lips to make them fuller
-Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
Juvéderm Volbella XC with lidocaine is a new dermal filler treatment for the lips and Peri-oral area. Designed not only for gentle restoration of natural looking lip volume, it can also be used for defining lip contours, treating oral commissures, smoothing fine ‘barcode’ lines around the lips and supporting the ‘marionette’ lines down the chin.
How do Juvéderm Volbella XC lip injections work?
Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, Juvéderm Volbella XC with lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration. This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are commonly seen to last up to twelve months.
What are the typical areas that are treated?
Juvéderm Volbella XC lip injections treat lost lip volume, defines lip contours, treats the corners of the mouth that turn down and make you look like you’re sad, smooth’s smoker’s lines and plumps up marionette lines (the lines that go from the corners of your mouth down to your chin).
Can Juvéderm Volbella XC treatments be combined with other treatments?
As smoker’s lines are difficult to treat, especially if they have been neglected, a Juvéderm Volbella XC treatment can be combined with some laser procedures that stimulate collagen and improve the final rejuvenation of the mouth area.
What to expect after a Juvéderm Volbella XC treatment:
There is virtually no swelling and bruising can be minimal, so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. You will be provided with an ice pack to take home, which lessens the redness and swelling.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
What is Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable gel?
Juvéderm Voluma XC injectable gel is a filler that is FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It’s different than Juvéderm Voluma XC and works on a different area of the face. Juvéderm Voluma XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. Juvéderm Voluma XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
Juvéderm Vollure XC softens moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles by adding volume to the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth to produce subtle and long-lasting results for up to 18 months. Juvéderm Vollure XC uses special technology, known as Vycross — which is also used in Juvéderm Voluma XC and Juvéderm Volbella XC — to hold the hyaluronic acid together into a cohesive gel, which keeps it intact after it’s injected into the skin.
Juvéderm XC is a dermal filler from Allergan Inc that is indicated for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds). Juvéderm XC is a “next generation” smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler offering a natural look and feel now formulated with Lidocaine to minimize discomfort of the injection. Juvéderm XC flows easily into the skin creating smooth, natural corrections to facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm XC is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Occurring naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid is a natural, complex sugar found in all living organisms and creates volume and elasticity in the skin.
Juvéderm XC adds volume to facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (the folds running from the sides of the bottom of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth), marionette lines (the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the bottom of the chin), the fine lines that develop with age, or as a result of smoking, around the lips, and in the lips to add volume to lips that are genetically small or just losing their volume as a result of natural aging.
For 20 years, Hyaluronic Acid has been used safely and effectively to treat multiple medical conditions including those associated with the eye and the knee. Hyaluronic Acid has proven itself now to be a major advancement in aesthetics field, offering clients a solution to help treat the obvious signs of aging while improving the appearance and self esteem of millions.
The common concern with using Juvéderm XC for lip enhancement is that they will be overdone. The goal is to restore the youthful look of your lips without anyone knowing. We at Medspa1064 do not create “duck lips”. Each treatment is individualized to match the patients face, features and goals to create a positive aesthetic balance.
Before And After Photos
Why does Juvéderm XC come in two formulations?
Juvéderm XC injectable gel is available in two formulations to allow our Physician to tailor treatment to your unique needs. Juvéderm XC Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, it is especially useful in the lips for that natural pouty and youthful look. Juvéderm XC Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
What makes Juvéderm XC different from other dermal fillers?
Juvéderm XC is the ONLY hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year after initial treatment. It also works to create a smooth and consistent gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvéderm XC is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
What is the difference between Radiesse and Juvéderm XC?
They are both very similar in that they are made from synthetic material your body already produces. Both are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, oral commissures, and vermilion border. We use Juvéderm XC primarily to soften fine lines, enhance the fullness of your lips, chin areas and Radiesse® to correct severe volume loss and structure.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. In addition to its use as an aesthetic treatment, hyaluronic acid has also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair.
Can people with different skin tones/colors be treated with Juvéderm XC?
Yes. In fact, Juvéderm XC injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven its safety and effectiveness in persons of color. Studies with Juvéderm XC showed no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.
How many syringes will I need?
We start with one syringe but tailor each treatment to each individuals unique needs, just as no two individuals are the same, no treatment is the same. The art of Esthetic Medicine requires different treatment based on each individual, their goals and their age. Your treatment at 40 will not be the same as at the age of 50. This will be discussed during your consultation. Our goal is to make you look younger not like someone else.
Does it go away completely?
Yes, if you stop getting the injections the material is degraded by the body, leaving no traces of the dermal filler in the body. With regular maintenance treatments you can increase the time between those treatments.
Is there any pre-treatment required?
Try to avoid any products containing aspirin, Ibuprofen, NSAID, St. John’s Wort or high doses of Vitamin E or fish oils for 3-5 days prior to treatment to help decrease possible bruising at the injection site. We strongly recommend our patients to eat pineapple the night before and the morning of the treatment to diminish possible bruising.
Is there any post treatment required?
Please refrain from aerobic exercise for 24 hours and not plan any important social or work functions for a few days after the treatment. There might be redness, swelling and minor bruising at the injection sites. In addition your lips will be slightly swollen that evening before settling into a youthful and full look the days after.
Will anyone know?
We’ve all seen the actresses and actors who take it too far and end up with gigantic lips and unnatural looking facial structures. Our goal is to make you look younger and more relaxed while maintaining your own natural look. Our goal is to make sure everyone notices how rejuvenated you are, without anyone knowing you’ve had a treatment.
