Natural smooth appearing , technique dependent
Thank you for your question regarding Volbella XC for lip enhancement. Volbella XC can subtly and softly enhance the lips and detail the beautiful surrounding lip structures (cupids bow, philtrum column) however this product is extremely technique dependent. The lip ratio on every individual varies so an assessment by an advanced injector is key to determine that not only is the placement meticulous, but the ratio at which your lips are augmented fits the aesthetic ideal. The ratio that is not proportioned correctly can leave one with an artificial "duck" appearance. It's important to find a provider who performs thousands of Juvederm procedures and perhaps is one of the top providers in your region.
Best subtle lip enhancement
Vobella is Allergan's most recent, FDA approved specifically for subtle lip enhancement and plumping. It is specifically defined to help with fine lines and enhance the natural shape of the lip. It will not cause significant plumping so it may be exactly what you are looking for - either that or a smaller amount of regular Juvederm Ultra which will give a slightly more plumping effect. I would recommend speaking with a board certified dermatologist or board certified facial plastic surgeon who has additional training in lip enhancement. best of luck and I think you will be happy with the results!

Volbella to get natural looking lips -- alternatives are juvederm, restylane, voluma
Volbella is a great way to get naturally full lips. Juvederm Volbella lip fillers use a technology called Vycross which allows single strand injections which hold less water and creates a smoother result than most other fillers. We are able to gage just how much pout you want because of this single strand technique and product with minimal swelling.
Volbella for natural appearanc
Volbella results differ from patient to patient, depending on the patient and who is injecting the product. Volbella is an extremely delicate filler. The method of injection often determines the outcome, as to whether your lips look fresh and hydrated vs an overdone "trout pout" set of lips. That's why it is important to see a master injector when you are considering having your lips enhanced. With lips, minute details matter, and often less is more in terms of safety and outcome.
Volbella gives a very soft appearance, smoothing fine lines and giving a more hydrated appearance. It does not give a lot of volume. This filler lasts around one year in the lips. In our office, we use a topical numbing cream before injection to make the treatment more comfortable. Volbella also has lidocaine (a numbing agent) in the filler itself.
You really need a 6-point lip analysis to assess critical shape, volume, and overall delicate architectural points to create a natural, rosebud lip.
