JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC injectable gel is a smooth, clear, colorless hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of HA in the skin is to deliver nutrients and help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC injectable gel is manufactured using VYCROSS® technology to give a specialized smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results at the treatment site.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC is a crystal-clear gel that is injected directly into and around the lips using an ultrafine needle to temporarily plump the lips for lip enhancement and to smooth the appearance of lines around the mouth in adults over the age of 21. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection by reducing sensitivity to pain.
The results of the JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC clinical study showed that the product temporarily improves lip fullness and smooths the appearance of lines around the mouth. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC was found to effectively increase lip fullness and smooth the appearance of lines around the mouth. The clinical study showed that JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC lasts through 1 year in the majority of subjects.
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. In the JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC clinical study, immediately after the injection, subjects rated pain, on average, as a 3 on an 11-point scale where 0 is no pain and 10 is worst pain imaginable. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC contains lidocaine to reduce injection site pain. Your doctor may also choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area with a topical or injected numbing agent to further minimize discomfort.
In the JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC clinical trial, the most common side effects were temporary responses at the treatment site such as swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness, and lumps/bumps. These side effects usually lasted 2 weeks or less. See Section 7 for additional information on side effects seen in the clinical study. Your doctor will also tell you what to expect following treatment with JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC. Within the first 24 hours, you should minimize strenuous exercise and exposure to extensive sun or heat. Exposure to any of the above may increase temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site. If there is swelling, you may need to place an ice pack over the swollen area. You should ask your doctor when makeup may be applied after your treatment.
