Full, pouty, shapely lips play an important role in looking young and fresh. Sadly, the lips are one of the first areas to start to reveal the signs of aging. As we grow older, the lips begin to thin because of localized collagen depletion, with vertical lines often forming above and below the mouth.
At Skin Deep MD in Boulder, we offer treatment with dermal fillers to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the lips and mouth. Juvéderm Volbella is an advanced hyaluronic acid filler, specially designed for augmenting the lips and correcting perioral (around the mouth) lines.
Why Thinning Lips are Inevitable with Aging
Collagen gives the skin structure and provides a base for hyaluronic acid and elastin, vital substances to the shape, suppleness, and structure of the lips. Collagen loss begins in the mid to late 20s and diminishes at a rate of one or two percent a year. The lips respond to accumulated collagen depletion by thinning and developing tiny radiating lines.
Although various genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors can contribute to thinning lips and “lipstick lines,” everyone loses lip volume eventually. Juvéderm Volbella provides a non-surgical solution for adding natural-looking volume to the lips, to minimize the appearance of vertical lip lines, or both.
The Skin Deep Difference
All lip augmentation treatments with Juvéderm Volbella are overseen or delivered by our skilled physician, Dr. Melody Denham to ensure the results look fresh, natural, and plump – not overfilled. Never risk a facial procedure at a bargain spa. All lip injection treatments for plumping and shaping must be performed with meticulous care. That’s what you can expect at Skin Deep in Boulder.
What Is Juvéderm Volbella?
Volbella is a member of the Juvéderm family of advanced dermal fillers. Like the rest of the Juvéderm line, it was developed with a specially-modified form of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally created by the body. Juvéderm injectable fillers temporarily replace lost hyaluronic acid, adding firmness, pliability, and plumpness to the area treated, including lips.
With a smooth gel consistency, Juvéderm Volbella is an ideal dermal filler to plump the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lines. Like most Juvéderm dermal fillers, Volbella contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to reduce sensitivity to pain and improve the experience of having aesthetic injections.
What Is the Treatment Experience Like with Juvéderm Volbella?
Convenience and comfortable treatment are some of the benefits of Juvéderm Volbella injections we offer at Skin Deep MD in Boulder. Before treatment begins, a highly-trained medical professional will evaluate your medical history, listen closely to your concerns and aesthetic goals, evaluate your face, and tailor a customized anti-aging treatment plan to create the look you envision.
The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes to an hour to perform. In addition to the lidocaine contained in Juvéderm Volbella, some patients choose to add a topical numbing cream before the procedure – patient comfort is always a primary concern Skin Deep MD. This is a minimally-invasive procedure with no downtime, and the fuller, plumper lips and smoothed lip lines are immediately visible.
How Long Do Results Last with Juvéderm Volbella Injections?
As one of the Juvéderm family of advanced dermal fillers, this hyaluronic acid filler produces results that last far longer than results with injectable fillers of the past. With optimal treatment, Juvéderm Volbella results can last up to one full year before you need retreatment to maintain your look.
What Can Juvéderm Volbella Do for Lips and Mouth?
Juvéderm Volbella is a state-of-the-art dermal filler designed specifically for treating the lips. Injected with super-fine needles, it has a very smooth consistency that makes this dermal filler ideal to achieve natural-looking lip augmentation and to smooth visible lip lines. Our aesthetic injectors are the best in the business, known for their delicate touch and artistry. We perform Juvéderm Volbella injections to:
- Add a plump, youthful fullness to the lips
- Provide subtle contouring to correct lip asymmetry

Juvéderm Volbella is an ideal dermal filler for enhancing and rejuvenating the lips. However, any dermal filler is only as good as the medical professional performing the injections. At Skin Deep MD in Boulder, CO, we focus on performing Juvéderm Volbella treatments with the highest levels of technical skill and patient care to create fuller, shapelier, more youthful looking lips and mouth.
