For those in search of a new, nonsurgical lip filler to enhance the fullness of lips and reduce lines around the mouth, we are proud to introduce Volbella to our Pittsburgh and Wexford offices.
Volbella is the latest FDA-approved injectable to be added to the Juvéderm dermal fillers. This treatment is specifically designed to add volume to the lips, as well as to diminish the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, also called perioral rhytids or lines. Treatment for perioral lines was previously difficult, so we are excited to share this new treatment option with our patients.
Volbella is ideal for filling out the volume of lips and correcting fine wrinkles surrounding the mouth. This temporary filler is made of hyaluronic acid, and it does not require a skin test prior to injections. The small particle size in Volbella is responsible for the meticulous treatment of fine lines in these delicate areas.
Volbella is best for fixing small, fine lines, as well as performing subtle lip enhancement. The correction of these fine line areas is completed without the worry of bulky or too puffy lips as a result. Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology specializes in ensuring your lips look natural and properly aligned to your facial structure.
Volbella is the first FDA-approved lip augmentation filler to address perioral lines. Volbella is now the solution for patients who are particularly concerned about the appearance of perioral lines, which occur in the skin directly surrounding the lips. Volbella is similar to Voluma in the way that it boasts VYCROSS®, the filler technology by Allergan. With the use of this technology, Volbella has a smooth, gel consistency that aids in the success of long-lasting results. The hyaluronic acid in this lip filler allows for a subtle addition of volume, along with the natural feel and appearance of the lips.
Volbella has been proven to soften and fill lines in a majority of patients through one year. Volbella is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which results in consistently soft, moist skin, ensuring long-lasting results.
Volbella injections are safe for patients who are at least 21 years old. Volbella works to restore hyaluronic acid that may have been lost due to aging, in order to rejuvenate volume in the lips and surrounding skin.
VYCROSS® is Allergan’s proprietary filler technology that works to produce effective and smooth dermal fillers made to address specific patient concerns.
Lips augmentation and fine line treatments with Volbella are relatively painless. Volbella is formulated with a small amount of a local anesthetic called lidocaine, which reduces pain and enhances comfort throughout the procedure. At Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, we use only the smallest needle possible in order to allow for the most comfortable injection experience.
Side effects most commonly include bruising, redness, pain, tenderness, swelling, itching, and discomfort. These are temporary responses that can occur at the treatment site. When you schedule your appointment, please ask about the steps you can take to avoid bruising or swelling.
Recovery with Volbella is quick and easy. Patients may return to usual activities after the procedure. It is common to experience mild side effects, including tenderness and swelling, immediately following the procedure. These should subside within a couple of weeks. Within the first 24 hours following treatment, it is best to not partake in extreme physical activity, as well as to limit sun exposure.
The proper name for Voluma and Volbella is Juvéderm Voluma and Juvéderm Volbella, as they are part of the overall Juvéderm Family. All Juvéderm products, including Juvéderm, Juvéderm Plus, Voluma, and Volbella, are hyaluronic acid fillers from the makers of Botox and Allergan. These products each have unique properties approved for specific areas and aesthetic goals.
