Juvederm Volbella, a dermal filler from the Juvederm family of products by Allergan, a leader in the world of aesthetic injectables, is one of the latest injectable lip augmentation solutions to be approved by the FDA. Made available for use in the U.S. in October 2016, Juvederm Volbella is transforming the way in which we enhance our lips. This specially formulated dermal filler is designed to add fullness to the lips, improve lip symmetry, and reduce the signs of aging around the mouth.
Thanks to its smooth gel-like consistency, Juvederm Volbella can also effectively contour the lips to transform their shape and overall appearance. Featuring a proprietary form of hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the body, Juvederm Volbella also utilizes Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology for enhanced longevity and more natural results. A versatile and effective injectable, this filler also contains a small amount of lidocaine to minimize the minor discomforts sometimes associated with treatment.
Juvederm Volbella can:
- Add fullness and plumpness to the lips
- Produce results that last for up to a year
- Provide gentle contouring for the correction of lip asymmetry
- Soften the appearance of fine lines that often appear around the mouth as we age
- Produce natural-looking results that are so subtle that no one needs to know that you had the procedure in the first place
The Ideal Candidate for Juvederm Volbella
Juvederm Volbella is intended for adults who are age 21 and over. Allergan conducted extensive clinical trials to test the safety and effectiveness of this filler, and the results showed that the safety of this product was about the same as that of the control group. These results mean that Juvederm Volbella is considered to be safe for most people to use.
However, certain people should not use Juvederm Volbella. Specifically, those who have severe allergies, including a history of anaphylaxis, are advised to not use this product. Additionally, if you are allergic to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins, you should not receive Juvederm Volbella treatments.
Otherwise, if you are unhappy with the appearance or feel of your lips and are ready to do something about it, you are an ideal candidate for Juvederm Volbella and similar fillers.
Additionally, if you have lines around your mouth that you would like corrected, or if you are unsatisfied with the shape or general appearance of your lips, Juvederm Volbella may be the right option for you.
Juvederm Volbella Injections: What to Expect During Treatment
The typical Juvederm Volbella treatment takes around 30 minutes. This is a safe, effective outpatient procedure, so you shouldn’t have to miss a beat when it comes to work and other responsibilities.
When you come in for your treatment, an Aesthetic Injection Specialist will begin by cleaning and preparing the treatment area. Since Juvederm Volbella contains small amounts of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, and the needle is very fine, discomfort is minimal. Most patient report only feeling a small pinch during treatment.
At the time of your appointment, your provider will already have met with you to determine where to administer the treatments. You will know exactly what to expect. After the treatment, you will be provided with post-care instructions and can resume most normal activities for the remainder of the day.
