What is Juvederm Volbella®?
Juvederm Volbella® is a new injectable dermal filler that can be used to both augment the lips and soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines near the mouth. This way, patients are able to correct nearly all of the ways the mouth can be affected by the signs of aging using a single, simple treatment.
Juvederm Volbella® treatments are ideal for patients that are interested in subtly enhancing the shape, fullness, and symmetry of their lips without dramatically changing their appearance. A single injection session of Juvederm Volbella® can bring patients wrinkle correction and lip augmentation results that last up to one year.
How Does it Work?
Like many other dermal fillers, Juvederm Volbella® is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a compound that naturally occurs within the body. When injected into the mouth or surrounding skin during a Juvederm Volbella® treatment, this product attracts additional volume and fullness to the area, adding definition to the lips and slowly softening wrinkles and fine lines.
But unlike most other injectable lip augmentation dermal fillers, Juvederm Volbella® is formulated using VYCROSS™ technology. This process uses a combination of both high and low molecular weight technologies to improve the way hyaluronic acid chains integrate with each other and the area they are injected to. This allows for less product to be used, which brings patients more natural-looking results and a decreased chance of experiencing negative side effects like swelling, bruising, and redness.
What can I Expect from a Juvederm Volbella® Treatment?
Because this product is formulated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, injection sessions are relatively comfortable. Each session takes about 20 minutes to complete, and patients can return back to their daily routines once they are finished with treatment.
While downtime after treatment is minimal, patients may experience slight swelling, redness, or bruising near the injection site. The results of a single session become fully visible within a few weeks of receiving treatment; these improvements last up to a year in most patients.
If you’re looking for a simple way to bring youthful softness to your lips and mouth, Juvederm Volbella® may be the perfect aesthetic treatment for you!
