To enhance fullness and minimize the look of fine lines on your lips and the area surrounding them, our aesthetic injector specialist uses Juvéderm Volbella®. Your lips and the facial area surrounding them show the first signs of aging. Your mouth thins and you develop perioral rhytids, also called perioral lines. This recently FDA-approved non-surgical treatment works wonders where other fillers provide less than ideal results.
What is Juvéderm Volbella?
Volbella is a temporary filler consisting of small hyaluronic acid (HA) particles to treat fine lines and thinning lips. This new product works well in defining and plumping wrinkles for a youthful appearance without going overboard toward an artificial look. Results are subtle, not puffy or bulky. You maintain healthy proportion in your facial structure.
Juvederm, the Allergan product family of injectable fillers containing HA, sets the high bar for the filler industry. This family of products includes the standard product, Plus, Voluma and Volbella. Allergan also makes Botox®. You can achieve your ideal facial results with one or more of these products, according to the recommendations of your plastic surgeon or your aesthetic nurse injector.
This product and the similar Voluma both use Vycross technology. Vycross is Allergan’s proprietary filler technology that provides smooth dermal injectables designed to meet specific treatment needs. In fact, it is the first dermal filler providing non-surgical treatment for “smoker’s lines,” the tiny perioral lines around the mouth.
When you get injections around your mouth or perioral lines with Volbella, you immediately appear more youthful. The product turns back the hands of time and provides your treated areas with a smooth, natural texture.
How Long Does This Facial Filler Treatment Last?
The majority of patients receiving this filler treatment achieve great results for a year. The HA in the formulation also enables your skin to retain moisture and softness as it should. You gain the best results when you receive a one-month touch up to achieve optimal correction.
Is Volbella Injectable Treatment Safe?
HA occurs naturally in your body, so its presence in the aesthetic injectable filler is safe for adults. This sugar molecule restores your lost natural HA and softly adds volume in the treated skin.
Despite being safe, you can experience some minor side effects. These include swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising, discomfort, itching or pain. These effects only temporarily occur where you receive your injections. Be certain to speak with your certified advanced Injector of Dermal Fillers about avoiding swelling and bruising when you receive your treatment.
After your treatment appointment at Zenn Plastic Surgery, you can return to work and your daily routine. Any side effects should go away in a few weeks. Of course, for the first day after your treatment you should avoid strenuous activities, such as an intense workout. Wait at least 24 hours before exposing your treated areas to the sun.
Do The Aesthetic Injectable Injections, Such As Volbella, Hurt?
When you receive this treatment at Zenn Plastic Surgery, you can expect little to no discomfort. The product’s formulation includes a small dose of lidocaine, an anesthetic that reduces pain and improves comfort during your procedure.
Zenn Plastic Surgery’s expert injector uses small needles for your facial injections. This makes the procedure more comfortable. Further comfort comes from use of numbing cream or by holding ice to your targeted area to desensitize the skin.
