Juvederm Volbella is a specialised hyaluronic acid dermal filler, specifically formulated for enhancing the lips. Recognised for its smooth, natural effect, Volbella is ideal for adding volume and plumpness to the lips, as well as smoothing fine lines around the mouth. Its composition, being thinner and more pliable than other facial fillers, is particularly suited for the delicate skin of the lips.
Why Juvederm Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella stands out for its specific design aimed at subtle lip plumping and smoothing, including defining lip lines and smoothing vertical lines around the lips (smoker’s lines). Its results are long-lasting, generally up to 1 year, providing a naturally refreshed look that is noticeable yet discreet.
How Does It Work?
This colorless injectable gel of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the skin, includes lidocaine for a more comfortable injection experience. The gel works by adding a bit of volume to the lip tissue, creating definition, and smoothing lines, while also attracting moisture for a well-hydrated look.
How Comfortable Is the Treatment?
The treatment, including the use of lidocaine, is tailored for comfort, even in the sensitive lip area. Providers often apply a topical numbing cream before treatment to further enhance comfort. The process involves a sensation of pressure but typically minimal pain, making it a comfortable experience for most patients.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Results from Juvederm Volbella injections are immediate and long-lasting, persisting for up to a year. The filler is naturally absorbed by the body over time, and repeat injections may be needed to maintain optimal correction.
What Is the Postcare?
Post-treatment care includes recommendations to avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours to prevent temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection sites. Providers may advise using an ice pack over swollen areas and will inform when makeup can be reapplied.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically, only one treatment is required to achieve optimal results. However, since the correction is temporary, maintenance treatments might be needed to sustain the desired appearance.
