Juvederm Volbella, a Great Medicine for Your Lips

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

Living in an area where looks mean everything to so many people, I can see how the following product could be very well embraced. Quite honestly, I am too tired to worry about such things anymore, but there was a time when I might have made the consideration.  My question to you, is would you, or wouldn't you? Just curious. And a big thank you to the sponsor for guesting on the blog today.

Cosmetic medicine is a branch of medicine that has experienced biggest progress in last 20 years. This comes as a no surprise because everybody wants to look young and beautiful. By using different types of fillers and botox, we are able to treat our face and remove any imperfections that were caused by passing of time. However, global trends have changed as of late. People are putting emphasis and longevity. For many individuals, preserving healthy body is one of the most important things that they strive for each and every day. As such, pharmaceutical industry is constantly trying to provide new and improved drugs that will solve concrete problem and yet, protect organism.

As the time goes by, invasive cosmetic procedures are becoming less and less popular. Patients have realized that they can achieve same or better results by using medical fillers instead of performing surgeries. At the same time, companies that are producing fillers have evolved. Most of the fillers were previously based on collagen. Nowadays, people are preferring products with hyaluronic acid as the main component. Even though both of these substances are naturally produced by the body, products such as Juvederm Volbella (based on hyaluronic acid) have provided much better results than any other product based on collagen.

What is the secret behind medical fillers? The main thing about these products is that they are not drugs in its usual sense. In fact, they can be regarded as supplement. When you inject drugs such as Juvederm, you are not affecting chemical composition of your body. Instead, you are only replenishing matters that are lacking within the skin. Juvederm uses purified hyaluronic acid, component that is very similar to substance produced within the skin. As such, it provides much better results, body can easily absorb it and side effects are minimal. Also, have in mind that medical fillers last for limited amount of time. This means that result is not final; if patient is not satisfied, he can simply stop with the treatment. At the same time, they last for a long time within a body (up to 12 months) meaning that patient will not be forced to constantly go to his doctor’s office to get a new shot.

According to Doctor Medica, Juvederm Volbella is the only drug that is clinically proven to last for up to 12 months within a body. Drug is used for lips. When a doctor injects this drug into patient’s lips, hyaluronic acid within it improves lip volume. It gives them beautiful, youthful looks. Small needles are used for the procedure and the pain is minimal. Having in mind that entire procedure lasts for about 15 minutes, you will be able to return to your daily routine in no time. But, any type of lip irritation is forbidden.

As previously mentioned, side effects of this drug are minimal. Components within it usually do not pose a problem. Needles are the main issues because they can sometimes cause irritations. Redness, swelling, bruising are normal problems that a patient can encounter. Luckily, they are short lived, lasting up to 7 days.

  3. I've tried fillers before and like that they aren't permanent like invasive procedures, and help to enhance the look, but in a very natural way so you don't look too drastic. I feel it's like getting braces for your teeth ;)

    Invasive procedures to nip and tuck are another thing though. I'm still holding back on the idea.

  4. I am all for procedures as long as it makes you feel good about you and are not too extreme. I like the idea of more a more natural look and enhancing in a less invasive way is fine with me.

  6. If it makes someone feel good about themselves, I'm all for it. It's probably not something I would do, but to each their own, right?

  7. I have and would consider many things. But, having my lips enhanced is not one of them. To each their own though!

  8. This stuff scares me. I'm fine with my lips. They do dry up fast (and lack of action doesn't help), but this stuff scares me.

    Take care, Rosey.

  9. At my age now, I don't think I would. I'm pretty satisfied now with the way I look.

  10. If I don't need a doctor, I don't get such things done

  11. This is interesting. I haven't done anything to improve my facial features, but I'm not closing the doors.

  12. I'm happy with my lips as they are now so I probably wouldn't try this myself, and I've heard horror stories about people surgically enhancing their lips who end up with "trout mouth" or other disastrous results so I'm wary about any lip enhancement procedures. I'd advise people wanting this type of procedure go to a good plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience just to be on the safe side!

  14. I entertained the thought of having my nose done, but glad that was only a fleeting thought. :)

  15. This was a fascinating read.
    I just have hair troubles :)

  16. I've had some work done. I won't do it again, but I'm glad I did it back then. It's a painful process in some cases and it takes time to heal. This is a good alternative to all that downtime for surgery. If one likes this then go for it.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  17. Interesting read, but not my thing. I'm all for those who want to change themselves to make themselves feel better though! :)

  18. I think if you want it, go for it as long as its for the right reasons. Not my thing personally, but to each their own.

  19. Would be nothing I would consider and hope my kids would feel the same way.
