Q. What is JUVEDERM VOLBELLA®?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is a new injectable lip augmentation treatment that was FDA-approved in June of 2016. This product can be used to improve the appearance of various aspects of the lip and mouth area, adding natural-looking contour, fullness, symmetry, and definition to lips that have lost volume over time. It can also be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines near the mouth area. In both cases, this product can bring patients results that can last up to one year.
Q. How Does it Work?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a compound common in many dermal fillers. When injected into the lips or surrounding skin, this substance infuses the area with extra volume.
What sets JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® apart from many other lip augmentation procedures is the way it is created. JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is formulated using VYCROSS™ technology that utilizes a combination of both high and low molecular weight techniques to improve the way hyaluronic acid chains cross-link with each other and the rest of the skin’s tissues. In short, this allows for less hyaluronic acid to be used during treatment, decreasing the amount of swelling and overall discomfort patients experience. It also brings patients results that are more subtle and natural looking when compared with other injectable lip augmentation treatments.
Q. What can I Expect from Treatment?
Because JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is formulated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, most patients do not experience any significant discomfort during treatment. Each injection session takes about 20 minutes to complete and can bring patients results that last up to a year. While a small degree of redness, swelling, or bruising is fairly common after treatment, this usually subsides quickly.
Q. Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone interested in subtly augmenting their lips or improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines near their mouth is a potential candidate for a JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® treatment. Before undergoing this procedure, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this consultation, one of our practitioners will ask you about your treatment goals, current state of health, and medical history in order to decide if JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® treatments are right for you.
