Juvederm Voluma For Lips: Treatment & Benefits

Juvederm Voluma For Lips: Treatment & Benefits

27 September

Lip injections are a delicate art. While some people only want minor or subtle lifts, there are those who dream of having fuller, duck-like lips. Using large volumes of dermal fillers may not be prudent in the long run. The other option is to use a thicker filler, such as Juvederm Voluma.

Using HA fillers for the lips

Juvederm Voluma is a cohesive, sterile, and nonimmunogenic hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has a thicker consistency compared to other products in the Juvederm line. The hyaluronic acid (HA) in this product is created from the fermentation of equine streptococci and is extracted into 10% low molecular weight HA and 90% high molecular weight HA. The cross-linking of these two types of HA forms a more viscous gel that is also thick enough for volume restoration.

With HA, the product can add volume to the treated area while giving nutrients to the neighboring soft tissues. It can also stimulate fibroblasts to form new collagen. As HA is originally abundant in the body, the product can assimilate into the contours of the lips with minimal complications.

Voluma has been approved for recontouring facial structures such as the cheeks and the lower-face region near the chin. It is indicated for injection into the deep dermis, subcutaneous tissue, or the upper periostea. It is supplied in a syringe that contains 2ml of this solution at a concentration of 20mg/ml of HA.

How to inject Juvederm Voluma into the lips

Many clinicians have successfully performed a successful lip augmentation with Juvederm Voluma. This product can provide optimal filling that is easy to mold and sustain within the submucosa.

For the injection, use a 23G needle or 18G cannula to accommodate different depths of injection. To reduce the pain and discomfort of the injection, administer a local anesthetic such as lidocaine. There is also Voluma XC, a pre-mixed solution with 0.3% lidocaine, that might be suitable for patients.

With lidocaine, the patient will not feel any burning pain, except for a needle pinching sensation at the lips. If Juvederm Voluma is considered too thick for the patient's lips or if the lips are too vulnerable, it is possible to dilute this solution with saline. The most important thing to remember is that this product is intended for lip augmentation, not for removing fine lines or rhytids on the lips.

After the injection, gently massage the treated area to distribute the gel evenly. This can also help to form a more natural-looking placement of the implant.

The final look

With Juvederm Voluma, the lips can look substantially plumper. Another aspect of the lip that can be improved is the “cupid's bow,” which is located on the upper lip. At the same time, added plumpness can bring an improved glow or radiating sheen to the redness of the lips.

A common general concern with using light HA dermal filler products for lip augmentation is the multiple treatments required in the first month, which is not necessarily cost effective. However, with Voluma, some individuals have seen their injections last for seven to 10 months with one injection session.
