What is JUVEDERM VOLBELLA®?
FDA-approved in June of 2016, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is one of the newest methods of injectable lip augmentation available today. This product can be used to add subtle definition, shape and symmetry to the lips, while also correcting fine lines and wrinkles in the area. The results of this treatment can last up to one full year, so patients don’t have to undergo frequent periodic injections to maintain beautiful, natural-looking lip improvements.
How Does it Work?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. When injected into or near the lips, this product infuses the treated area with additional volume and fullness. But what sets JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® apart from other dermal fillers is the fact that it is formulated using VYCROSS™ technology. This technology incorporates a combination of both low and high molecular weight technology to help hyaluronic acid chains blend with themselves and the skin tissues more efficiently.
What can I Expect from a JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® Treatment?
Because JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is formulated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, the injection is much more comfortable when compared to similar injectable procedures. Each treatment takes about 20 minutes to complete, and patients experience little to no downtime. While side effects like redness, swelling, and bruising are common, these usually fade within a few days of undergoing injections. Nearly anyone can undergo JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® injections, but this treatment is most beneficial for older women interested in subtly improving the appearance of their lips.
