Make Your Mark - Collection
Your lips are as unique as you are, a signature feature that helps you express yourself and make your mark on the world, which is why lip injections have shown staggering growth since 2000. How can the products in the JUVÉDERM collection help you make your mark?
Hi, I'm Dr. Anita Stella. As a dermatologist, I treat hundreds of patients a year who are interested in natural looking, long lasting results. Lips are a very distinct feature on a woman's face, and some may be seeking a different look than others. Treatment should be personalized, being considered of what you want while preserving symmetry and proportion.
Since every patient is different, during the first consultation we'll look at your lips in relation to your entire face. Together, we'll choose a treatment that works best for you. We don't want to over correct, just create a natural looking, long lasting results. The JUVÉDERM collection of fillers offers two products that are approved for lip augmentation. This gives me more options to tailor treatments that are just as unique as my patients.
What I see here is that she has fine lines around the outside of her lips, that we can do a nice job of smoothing. For her, I would recommend JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, to provide subtle fullness in her lips, while smoothing the lines around them. She has beautiful lip structure. Increasing fullness in her lips will work well with the balance of her facial features. JUVÉDERM Ultra XZ would be my recommendation for her. Both will have treatments that are tailored to them.
The safety and effectiveness of JUVÉDERM fillers have been well-established and tested in various clinical trials. In the clinical trial, JUVÉDERM VOlBELLA XC was found to effectively increase lip fullness in a majority of subjects through one year.

They are made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The gel formulations in the JUVÉDERM collection of fillers undergoes a proprietary manufacturing process that creates a smooth consistency gel.
