Volbella is an injectable filler based on hyaluronic acid (HA) that provides a desirable improvement in the lip contour, boosting volume, smoothing vertical creases (smoker's lines), and achieving symmetry – all in a single comfortable treatment.
Juvéderm Volbella is recommended for its smoother, softer consistency that mimics the natural feel of your lips for a longer time.
Juvederm Volbella with Lidocaine is a new dermal filler treatment for the lips and Peri-oral area. Designed not only for gentle restoration of natural looking lip volume, it can also be used for defining lip contours, treating oral commissures, smoothing fine 'barcode' lines around the lips and supporting the 'marionette' lines down the chin.
Developed using Allergan's proprietary Vycross technology, Juvederm Volbella with Lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
This unique technology allows it to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime afterwards, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built in Lidocaine anaesthetic. Another advance made by this product is the length of time you can expect the effects of this treatment to last for 12 months.
Juvederm Volbella treats lost lip volume, defines lip contours, treats the corners of the mouth that turn down and make you look like you're sad, smooth's smoker's lines, and plumps up marionette lines (the ones that go from the corners of your mouth down to your chin).
As smoker's lines are difficult to treat, especially if they have been neglected, Volbella can be combined with some laser procedures that stimulate collagen and improve the final rejuvenation of the mouth area.
There is virtually no swelling or bruising, so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. You will also be provided with an ice pack to take home which lessens the redness and swelling.
You may put makeup on the treated area immediately and resume whatever activities you have planned, as long as you recognize that you will be a little red and swollen for up to 2 days.
