Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard Buckley Reports Early Experience with Newly Adopted Juvéderm Volbella XC Filler – Approved for Lips and Fine Lines Around the Mouth
Milford, PA – December 15, 2016
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard Buckley, who has long used the Juvéderm family of hyaluronic acid fillers to address patients’ cosmetic concerns, says Juvéderm Volbella XC, a filler recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip augmentation and to correct lines around the lips, is a winner for his patients.
“The lips and skin around them are prominent signs of a youthful face and perceived beauty. With age and lifestyle, the lips thin and wrinkles often form around them,” Dr. Buckley says. “The newly approved Juvéderm Volbella XC is a single solution for both problem areas. It’s a great option for people who want to restore a more youthful look to their lips and surrounding facial skin with a nonsurgical option—the results from which last a year or more.”
Dr. Buckley, who is medical director at MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center in Milford, Penn., is a big fan of the Juvéderm family of cosmetic fillers. He’s not the only one. Soft-tissue fillers, including Juvéderm products, are among the most popular cosmetic options today, according to results of the 2015 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Survey on Dermatologic Procedures The top cosmetic procedures according to that survey are light and energy-based procedures, followed by neuromodulators (like Botox and Dysport) and soft tissue fillers. Chemical peels and body sculpting treatments round out the top five.
Juvéderm Volbella XC is ideal for patients who are not seeking drastic results; rather, they want a more natural looking boost to their lip fullness and to soften the lines around their lips. It is formulated with a proprietary technology called Vycross, which is engineered specifically to address concerns such as lip fullness, age-related volume loss in the cheek area and or perioral rhytids (which are those lines around the lips). Vycross technology not only helps to make the gel smooth but this special blend of different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid help Volbella XC last longer than many fillers.
“Juvéderm fillers are easy-to-use smooth gels that flow nicely into the skin. These fillers create a natural, seamless look and feel. Other hyaluronic acid fillers on the market have a more granular consistency,” Dr. Buckley says. “The newly approved Juvéderm Volbella XC provides that same smooth consistency for plumping the lips and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.”
“Our patients have been pleased with the results from Juvéderm Volbella XC. We’ve been waiting to offer patients this option, which has been approved for years in Europe and is distributed in more than 70 countries,” Dr. Buckley says. Juvéderm fillers have a strong track records among cosmetic patients. Juvéderm was the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that was shown to be safe and effective in patients with darker skin types. Fillers in the family approved prior to Volbella XC include Juvéderm Ultra, which is a versatile product for contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus, which is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
Other options for treating the lines around the lips include Botox, implants and resurfacing procedures, such as laser resurfacing and chemical peels, according to Dr. Buckley. The cosmetic surgeon also uses Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, or a patient’s own fat for lip augmentation.
