Suzanne Bruce and Associates, one of the nation's leading dermatology practices, offers lip enhancement filler JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® at its Houston-area practices.

Suzanne Bruce and Associates (http://www.sba-skincare.com) has added the FDA-approved lip augmentation filler JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC to the Houston practice's menu of services, which includes a range of cosmetic and medical dermatology treatments.

"We're excited to offer JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA to our patients who want fuller lips while still looking natural," says Dr. Suzanne Bruce, who founded the practice in 1997. "In addition to lip augmentation, VOLBELLA can also soften the fine lines that develop around the lips."

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, approved last year by the FDA, represents an improvement over other fillers being used for lip augmentation. Like other JUVÉDERM products, VOLBELLA is a hyaluronic acid-based filler, but it's formulated as a softer, smoother gel that can be more easily injected. A press release from Allergan, the maker of JUVÉDERM products, explains that the hyaluronic acid used in VOLBELLA is less concentrated, making it less likely to absorb water. This leads to less swelling and a more natural look.

"One of the primary concerns among patients considering lip augmentation is that they'll end up with the dreaded 'fish lips,'" says Dr. Bruce, who serves on the Allergan Medical Aesthetics Advisory Council and is recognized as one of the leading dermatologists in Houston. "My patients want subtle results that still make a noticeable difference. And that's exactly what I can consistently achieve with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA."

What makes JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC unlike any other injectable dermal filler currently on the market in the U.S. is its patented VYCROSS® filler technology. This is the same technology behind the smoother, softer gel that was initially introduced in JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. VOLUMA was the first filler approved by the FDA specifically to address age-related volume loss in the cheeks.

Lip enhancement's popularity has increased significantly in recent years, but Dr. Bruce says VOLBELLA's effectiveness at reducing the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth -- sometimes called "smile lines" -- is just as desirable among the cosmetic dermatology patients at her Houston and Katy, Texas locations.

"Many of our patients are very bothered by the lines that can appear around the lips, known as perioral rhytids," Dr. Bruce says. "The effectiveness of JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA in softening these lines was demonstrated in numerous clinical trials before it received FDA approval."
