If you have been on the fence about lip fillers because you are concerned that they may appear too dramatic for your liking, Juvéderm Volbella may be the perfect solution for you. This new addition to the Juvéderm collection provides a softer volume to the lips and natural correction to vertical lip lines.
What is Juvéderm Volbella?
Juvéderm Volbella is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler used for lips and the surrounding lip lines. Volbella is a lighter consistency that allows for a subtler result. Juvéderm Volbella is made with the same safe and effective ingredients that you trust from Juvéderm; however, Volbella was created to have a more fluid texture for softer volume without the same addition of structure that you may get from Juvéderm® XC.
What does Juvéderm Volbella Treat?
Juvéderm Volbella was developed to enhance lips as well as provide correction to the vertical lip lines that can form on the upper lip. These areas are more delicate and do very well with a softer filler. The lip lines that form on the upper lip are sometimes called ‘smokers lines’ and can be common among smokers or with general aging and volume loss. Voluminous lips of any level can be achieved with Juvéderm XC or Juvéderm Volbella; however, if you are looking for subtler look Volbella is a great choice.
What Should I Expect from Treatment?
To begin treatment, the staff at JDHR will apply a topical numbing cream for 15 to 20 minutes prior to the injections. On average, treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete. The injections use very small needles and are virtually painless due to the numbing cream and Ricardo Mejia, MD’s precise injection technique. Since Juvéderm XC is an injectable gel and non-surgical, most patients experience minimal recovery and downtime. Most side effects are mild and last less than one week including redness, tenderness, or swelling at the site of the injection.
