What Is The VOLBELLA Filler Treatment?
With JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, patients can enjoy restored lip volume with a treatment that is specifically designed to treat this delicate area of skin on and surrounding the mouth. VOLBELLA contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate and restore the skin. Hyaluronic acid is already a substance found naturally within the connective tissue of the human body and skin, though it decreases with age. To help restore this lost volume, VOLBELLA dermal filler is biocompatible with the facial tissue and is, therefore, an excellent replacement for it.
Once injected into the tissue, the filler can augment the shape and fullness of the lips or other areas of the face like jawline or cheeks. This compound also includes lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in order to minimize patient discomfort. The filler is meant to look natural without a large amount of prolonged swelling.
What Areas Can Be Treated With JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA is a unique injectable that works to improve the lips and peri-oral area. Our JUVÉDERM experts may recommend this facial aesthetic treatment for:
- Smoker’s lines
- Plumping and smoothing the lips
- Defining the “m” line above the mid-upper lip
- Accentuating the border of the lips
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA is also used to treat the “tear trough” area (the curved depression running under the eyes).
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA is specially formulated with Vycross technology for a smooth and soft consistency which absorbs less water. This produces smooth, natural-looking results as well as less swelling after treatment.
How Does JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA Work?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA is a type of gel containing hyaluronic acid, and works by adding volume into the area where it is injected. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance which helps retain moisture. When used in a dermal filler, it supplements and augments areas of the face that have lost volume, plumping up and revitalizing the outer layer of skin to produce a soft, smooth appearance.
How Long Do VOLBELLA Injections Last?
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA has been known to last for up to a year. Results may vary based on skin care, age, nutrition, and overall health.
Is There Any Downtime After VOLBELLA Injections?
No. You can return to your normal activities after your treatment. We do, however, recommend that you not engage in strenuous activities, expose yourself to direct sunlight or excessive heat, or drink alcohol for 24 hours after your treatment.
Are There Any Possible Side Effects To JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA?
Common side effects include temporary itching, soreness, and bruising. These usually disappear within a week. Rarer symptoms include bumps, swelling, or discoloration.
