Juvederm® Volbella is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, specifically formulated for the delicate skin covering the lips. Volbella is a thinner, more pliable substance compared to other facial fillers, providing a smooth, natural effect. Volbella adds volume and plumpness to the lips, while smoothing fine lines around the mouth as well. This filler is rapidly gaining popularity over other lip fillers, especially since Volbella contains lidocaine which reduces swelling at the injection sites and makes the procedure much more comfortable.
Juvederm® Volbella is a colorless injectable gel of hyaluronic acid, a natural component in the skin. It includes a small amount of lidocaine for an anesthetic effect, improving the comfort of the injection. Fillers provide immediate correction with long lasting effects.
Does it hurt?
Although the lip area may be slightly more spicy than other areas of the face the product includes lidocaine for improved your comfort. Your provider can also topically numb the area prior to treatment to give you an even more comfortable experience. Most report minimal discomfort.
How long does Juvederm® Volbella last?
Although correction is temporary, it is immediate and long lasting (up to 1 year). The filler is naturally broken down and absorbed by the body. Repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal correction.
How many of Juvederm® Volbella treatments do I need?
Only one treatment is required to achieve optimal results but remember, correction is temporary. The product will naturally break down and be absorbed by the body over time.
How do I prepare for my Juvederm® Volbella appointment?
Prior to your treatment appointment you will need to remove all makeup, or the provider can do it for you. The skin is then prepped with an antiseptic topically to prevent the introduction of bacteria during the injections.
What should I do or expect post Juvederm® Volbella treatment?
Your provider may recommend that you do not exercise strenuously, have extensive sun or heat exposure (like hot tubs or saunas), and drink alcoholic beverages for 24 hours. This can help to prevent temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching of the injection sites. Your provider may advise you to place an ice pack over any swollen areas. Ask when makeup may be used after your treatment.
