What is JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC?
Volbella® is a derma filler used to define lips and for the correction of fine lines around the lips. This temporary filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid and does not require a skin test before your treatment. The small Hyaluronic Acid particle size in Volbella® allows a treatment of those very fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.
Why choose Volbella®?
Volbella® is the perfect product to choose for small fine lines and subtle enhancement of the lips. The smaller particle size allows for the correction of these fine areas without the worry that you lips will get bulky or too puffy. I will make sure your lips look natural and proportionate to your facial structure. We know that Volbella® is one of the best choices on the market for lip augmentation.
How long does Volbella® last?
Volbella® uses patented Vycross technology, has been proven to soften and fill lines in a majority of people through one year. Since Volbella® is also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, the skin will retain moisture and softness ensuring long lasting results.
What is Vycross technology?
Both Volbella® and Voluma® products have Vycross technology in their filler. The technology yields a smooth derma filler product that has been engineered to address specific patient concerns, such as fine lines around the lips.
What are the side effects of Volbella®?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, tenderness, redness, pain and the possibility of discomfort and itching. These common side effects are temporary responses that can occur at the treatment site. When you call to book your appointment at Love Laser & Med Spa, please feel to talk to us about how to avoid bruising or swelling when having your injections.
What is the recovery from Volbella® like?
Recovery with Volbella® is minimal allowing you to return to your usual activities after the procedure. You may experience mild side effects such as redness, tenderness or swelling right after the procedure, but these should subside within a couple weeks, within the first 24 hours after your treatment, it is best to not engage in extreme exercise, limit your sun exposure and no eating or drinking for 3 hours.
Do Volbella® injections hurt?
Lip augmentation and fine line treatments with Volbella® are slightly painful. Another unique characteristic about Volbella® is that it is formulated with a small amount of lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic designed to reduce pain and maximize comfort during the Volbella® procedure. You can expect minimal discomfort while receiving Volbella® injections.
At Love Laser & Med Spa, when treating fine lines, we use the smallest needle possible for your injections. This allows for a more comfortable injection experience. Please ask our staff about arriving early for numbing cream or coming to the office a few days prior to treatment for a small amount of numbing cream to be applied on your appointment day prior to your treatment.
Is Volbella® safe?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in your body making Volbella® safe for adults age 21 and older. Volbella® restores some of the lost hyaluronic Acid due to aging in order to softly add volume back into the lips and surrounding skin.
What makes Volbella® unique compared to other fillers?
Volbella® is unique because it is the first lip augmentation filler that is FDA approved to address perioral lines, or smoker’s lines around the mouth. Volbella® is now the solution for patients who are particularly concerned about the appearance of perioral lines. Just like Voluma®, Volbella® boasts the filler technology by Allergan called Vycross. Using this technology makes Volbella® have a smooth, gel consistency and long lasting results. This lip filler contains hyaluronic acid allowing for the subtle addition of volume along with the natural feel and appearance of the lips.
What is the difference between Juvederm® Voluma® and Volbella®?
These products, while are all made of Hyaluronic Acid, each have their own unique properties. Ear product is approved for specific areas based on their thickness and particle size. I will be happy to talk about which product is the best to address your concerns.
