Juvéderm® Volbella® subtly reshapes and redefines lips, mouth and facial contours.
The newest addition to the Juvederm® family is Volbella®. The latest facial filler designed exclusively for natural-looking lip enhancement. By smoothing lines around the mouth and enhancing lip fullness, Juvederm® Volbella® reshapes, redefines and contours lips to improve lip symmetry and youthfulness.
Unlike other fillers used for lips, Volbella® provides results lasting up to 12 months. The hyaluronic acid concentration is lower making it less hydrophilic (less likely to absorb water) resulting in reduced swelling and a more natural result. Another feature that stands out is that it provides a nice silky sheen to the lips that do not appear in the other 5 fillers.
How Does Volbella® Work?
Volbella® adds definition to the mouth, outline of the face and lips.
Juvéderm® Volbella® is an injectable filler based on hyaluronic acid that provides a desirable improvement in the lip contour, boosting volume, smoothing vertical creases (smoker’s lines), and achieving symmetry.
It is a smooth gel that is injected by Dr. Tuesday by using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a softer consistency and mimics the natural feel of your lips for a longer time. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture. Results can last up to a year.
Volbella® Treatment Areas
Volbella® Juvederm® has been specifically developed for use in the lips and around the mouth.
Volbella® can help to:
- Increase lip fullness and definition
- Smooth out fine lines above the lips (“smoking lines”)
- Minimize creases and lines below the lips
- Treat marionette lines which appear from the corners of the mouth, down to the chin
- Treat oral commissures, or where the corners of the mouth turn down
Volbella® Before and After
What to Expect
Dr. Tuesday will have an thorough consultation with you to understand your needs and what facial features you would like to enhance. We will explain all the options to make sure that your Volbella® treatment completely satisfies your expectations.
Dr. Tuesday will advise you on your aftercare. We may advise to stop wearing makeup for 12 hours or less. We may also recommend to avoid the sun, saunas and steam rooms for up to 2 weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. We also recommended that you avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.
Is it safe?
The most common side effects include swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness, lumps/bumps, redness, pain, discoloration, and itching. Most side effects are mild or moderate and last 30 days or less.
Do the injections hurt?
Lips augmentation and fine line treatments with Volbella® are relatively painless. Volbella® contains Lidocaine to ensure patient comfort throughout the duration of treatment. If you feel you require numbing prior to the initial injections, please advise Dr. Tuesday.
How long does Volbella® last?
The results last up to 12 months as the gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles, while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture.
Who is a good candidate for Volbella® injections?
Healthy patients who are over 21 that seek natural smooth full lips should request a Volbella® consultation. Dr. Tuesday will perform a full consultation prior to any injection to determine if any patients have any specific risks on contraindications to injections. Patients should not be pregnant, breast feeding, going to become pregnant or take any medicines that thin their blood. Patients who get cold sores around their mouth should discuss taking an anti-viral prior to any lip injections. Volbella® patients should expect to be minimally swollen for 24-36 hours after the injection.
What makes Volbella® different?
Volbella® is Allergan’s® first filler that is designed specifically for the lips. The gel was developed with Vycross™ technology, which gives it a smooth and natural feel when injected.
