What is so special about Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC?
It is a hyaluronic acid filler designed with patented Vycross™ technology, which results in longer product duration, greater lift capacity and volume enhancement.
The unique technology makes the product last longer at the same time minimizing any change of swelling as with current hyaluronic acid gel fillers. For people in love with Juvederm Voluma, this product is it’s baby cousin and will be equally loved due to its unique properties and safety profile.
What is the difference between Juvéderm® Ultra XC vs Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC for lip augmentation?
The key difference is the concentration of Hyaluronic acid (HA). HA concentration of Juvéderm® Volbella is 15 mg/mL and while Juvéderm® Ultra has 24 mg/mL for Juvéderm® Ultra. This change allows for decreased absorption of water from the surrounding area and leads to less swelling the day after injection.

No, because it comes premixed with lidocaine (numbing medication) for increased comfort during injection procedure, just like other Juvederm products.
