If you have been looking for a natural-looking and feeling lip filler to enhance the fullness of your lips and reduce lines around the mouth, look no further! Your questions have finally been answered! Volbella is the latest FDA-approved injectable added to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers. This non-surgical lip augmentation treatment is designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also known as perioral rhytids or perioral lines. Perioral lines were previously difficult to treat, so we are excited about this new treatment option for our patients.
What is Juvederm Volbella?
Volbella is a dermal filler used to define lips and for the correction of fine wrinkles around the lips. This temporary filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid and does not require a skin test before your injections. The smaller Hylauronic Acid particle size in Volbella allows your cosmetic injector to treat fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.
Why choose Volbella?
Volbella is the perfect product to choose for small fine lines and subtle enhancement of the lips. The smaller particle size allows for the correction of these fine areas without the worry that your lips will get bulky or too puffy.
There is a trend these days to have overfilled lips. Beautique Medical Spa prides themselves on making sure your lips look natural and proportionate to you facial structure. We know Volbella is one of the best choices on the market for lip augmentation.
How long does Volbella last?
Volbella, using patented Vycross technology, has been proven to soften and fill lines in a majority of patients through one year. Since Volbella is also formulated with hyaluronic acid, the skin will retain moisture and softness ensuring long-lasting results. This data from Allergan includes a one month touch up so that optimal correction is achieved.
What is Vycross technology?
Both Volbella and Voluma products use Vycross technology. Vycross technology is a proprietary filler technology from Allergan, which yields smooth dermal filler products that have been engineered to address specific patient concerns.
What are the side effects of Volbella?
The most common side effects of Volbella are swelling, bruising, tenderness, redness, pain, and the possibility of discomfort and itching. These common side effects are temporary responses that can occur at the treatment site. When you call to book your appointment at Beautique Medical Spa, please feel free to talk to us about how to avoid any bruising or swelling when having your injections.
What is recovery from Volbella like?
Recovery with Volbella is minimal allowing you to return to your usual activities after the procedure. You may experience mild side effects such as redness, tenderness or swelling right after the procedure, but side effects should subside within a couple weeks. Within the first 24 hours after your treatment, it is best to not do extreme exercise and to limit sun exposure.
Do Volbella injections hurt?
Lips augmentation and fine line treatments with Volbella are relatively painless. Another unique characteristic about Volbella is that it is formulated with a small amount of lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic designed to reduce pain and maximize comfort during the Volbella procedure. You can expect minimal discomfort while receiving Volbella injections.
At Beautique Medical Spa, when treating fine lines, we use the smallest needle possible for you injections. This allows for a more comfortable injection experience. Please ask our staff about arriving early for numbing cream or you can also hold ice to the area to numb if you prefer.
Is Volbella safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in your body making Volbella injections safe for adults age 21 and older. Volbella restores some of the lost hyaluronic acid due to aging in order to softly add volume back into the lips and surrounding skin.
What makes Volbella unique compared to other fillers?
Volbella is unique because it is the first lip augmentation filler that is FDA approved to address perioral lines, or smoker lines around the mouth. Volbella is now the solution for patients who are particularly concerned about the appearance of perioral lines. Just like Voluma, Volbella boasts the filler technology by Allergan called VYCROSS®. Using this technology makes Volbella have a smooth, gel consistency and long-lasting results. This lip filler contains hyaluronic acid allowing for the subtle addition of volume, along with the natural feel and appearance of the lips.
