As we age, once-plump lips can begin to lose their volume – and when that happens, lip wrinkles and lines can become much more visible. If you’re looking to erase these wrinkles while plumping up lip volume, look no further than JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC. This dermal filler volumizes the lips for a more natural appearance while smoothing over the appearance of smoker’s lines and wrinkles. Dr. Tenley Lawton performs JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injections at her plastic surgery practice in Newport Beach, CA.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to temporarily add volume to the lips, all while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC uses a thinner HA gel to add volume; this makes it possible for the lips to enjoy more volume without looking hard or “duck like.”
If you want fuller lips that look younger and more hydrated, contact Dr. Lawton’s Newport Beach office to schedule a consultation. Dr. Lawton will walk you through the JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC process so you can understand what to expect from your non-surgical procedure.

Good candidates for JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC are those individuals who have thinning lips, or who want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and smoker’s lines around the lips.
Since the lips are such a small and delicate area, it’s easy for lip augmentation injections to produce stiff, unnatural-looking lips. Getting JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC treatments from a board-certified plastic surgeon means you’ll get much more natural results, as a plastic surgeon understands how to use Volbella to achieve your desired results.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injections can be done within 15 minutes and produce results within the first couple of weeks. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC contains a hyaluronic acid gel that’s made from a thinner consistency; this helps produce fuller lips that don’t look or feel unnatural. HA is a natural compound that can absorb a significant amount of water, which makes lips look hydrated and glossy.
When injected into certain parts of the lips, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC can create beautifully fuller lips that are selfie-ready. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC results typically last between 6 to 9 months, at which point patients will need to undergo another injection to maintain their results.
Patients should expect slight swelling, bruising, redness, and mild discomfort at the injection site. There’s no recovery time needed, so patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
