Juvederm Volbella is a great option for people who want to make corrections to their lips without surgery. Juvederm Volbella can increase lip fullness while also softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth in a manner that is both natural and subtle.
How Does Juvederm Volbella Work?
Juvederm Volbella is made from hyaluronic acid (like many dermal fillers) but with particles that are smaller than those found in other products. Volbella’s smaller particles allow practitioners to treat fine lines in a subtle way. With treatments, the injection sites are less likely to look overly full.
A procedure will typically take 15 to 30 minutes and will be relatively painless.
It also contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces pain. However, patients may apply a topical cream or ice to numb the area before injection. This will help relieve any discomfort at the injection site.
After the injection, your practitioner may massage the treatment area to work out any discomfort that you may feel.
Post Treatment Instructions
For 24 hours after the treatment, patients should avoid:
- Strenuous exercise
- Direct sun exposure
- All alcoholic beverages
Following these recommendations will allow for your treatment area to properly heal. Post-treatment results from Juvederm Volbella will look and feel natural.
Some people will have temporary side effects at the site of treatment. These include swelling, bruising, tenderness, redness, discomfort, or itching. Talk to your practitioner if you are concerned about the potential side effects.
Is This Right for Me?
Juvederm Volbella is designed for individuals who want to increase their lip volume in a subtle manner.
People who are experiencing age-related volume loss in their lips are great candidates. It can also be beneficial for those who have naturally thin lips.
Speak with your treatment provider to determine whether Juvederm Volbella is best for your aesthetic goals or if another product in the Juvederm family might be a better fit.
