Volbella by Juvaderm, a newly approved treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in lips, can increase lip fullness and smooth in the lines around the lips.
If you or someone you know wants to reduce those lines around the lips caused by aging or smoking, this may be a great option. Volbella can help define the contour of the lip by accentuating the border of the lips and providing fullness. The treatment can also assist with asymmetrical lips by adding to one (upper or lower) in order to achieve balance and enhance the definition of the middle of the upper lip or “cupid’s bow.”
As we age, our skin loses its volume, hydration and elasticity – all of which promote a youthful appearance. Volbella is used to give volume and create contours on the face where it is needed, especially in the lips and around the mouth.
How Volbella works
Volbella is a softer, smoother gel than other lip fillers, able to mimic the natural feeling of the lips. The hyaluronic acid-based gel has Vycross technology which creates better lifting and support for more natural and longer lasting results. It also results in less water absorption, and therefore less swelling than other lip fillers.
The results of Volbella typically last for a year to 18 months, which makes it one of the longest lasting lip enhancement products on the market.
You may think that an injection in the lips would be quite painful due to the sensitivity of the skin in that area of the face. However, Volbella injections include Lidocaine, which helps to numb the lips short-term during the injections so discomfort is minimized. This makes the procedure more tolerable and comfortable for the patient.
The treatment is a quick process and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. There may be additional swelling for a few days after the procedure and some slight bruising at the site of the injections. The results can be seen immediately.
Volbella is a breakthrough for achieving better lip fullness and smoothing those lines around the mouth, and it can help recipients have more confidence with their appearance.
