How is Volbella Different?
Like other Juvederm fillers, Volbella is made of hyaluronic acid. HA occurs naturally in your skin, cartilage and elsewhere in your body. When used as the active ingredient in a filler, HA plumps and smoothes depressions in the tissue that form wrinkles. Or, in the case of Volbella, the HA enhances the shape and contours of the lips, and smoothes lines around your mouth.
HA normally attracts water. This causes it to swell, exaggerating its filling effect; however, Volbella is made with a lower concentration of HA that does not attract as much water. This allows our injectors to create the most natural, customized results that never look "overdone."
Volbella is also "cross-linked" (modified) in a manner that makes it last for up to 12 months while still looking great. Juvederm calls this "Vycross" technology. Vycross technology also makes Volbella very smooth, and generally means it causes less swelling because less of the filler has to be used.
Reduced Discomfort with Volbella
One of the great things about Volbella is that it contains lidocaine. This numbing agent greatly reduces any pain or discomfort you would otherwise experience. Most people describe the injections as a slight pinching sensation, but overall not a painful experience.
Juvederm Volbella for Lips and Skin
This injectable enhances and refreshes your look:
- Plumps lips
- Defines the contour of your lips
- Smoothes vertical lines (smoker's lines)
- Smoothes marionette lines (wrinkles extending from the corners of your mouth to your chin)
- Improves the symmetry of your lips
You may be able to return to work or your other activities right away, depending on how much bruising and swelling you experience – this differs by individual. Because Volbella is quite smooth, many people experience only minor bruising and swelling.
You will notice immediate results that will improve over the next few days. Volbella lip enhancement results may last as long as a year, before a re-treatment may be necessary.
