Juvederm Volbella was created in 2014 in Paris. It has now been approved in Europe, Canada, and the United States. Volbella is a new option for patients who are looking to have the fine lines and wrinkles around their nose and mouth filled.
What is Juvederm Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella is made with Hyaluronic Acid and is a type of dermal filler. Since Volbella is made with Hyaluronic acid, there is no required skin test before the injections. This also allows Volbella to be used multiple times.
Why Use Juvederm Volbella?
Juvederm Volbella is a great option if you are looking to have small lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth filled. The small amount of Volbella needed is designed to fill in the lines without causing the lips to become bulky or puffy. This allows the fillers to look natural and proportionate to the rest of the other facial structures.
How long will Volbella Last?
For most patients, Volbella lasts about a year without needing a touch-up. The lips stay plumped for that long because the Hyaluronic Acid in Volbella moisturizes the skin from the inside, which keeps the lips soft.
What is Recovery Like?
The recovery after a Volbella injection only takes a short amount of time. Most patients can return to their usual activities right after their procedure. There are mild side effects like redness and pain after the injection, but these will stop after a few days. You should avoid sun exposure and exercise for the first 24 hours after the treatment.
What are the Volbella Benefits?
There are many benefits of choosing to use Juvederm Volbella for lip filler. Here are just a few of the benefits of choosing Volbella.
- More natural-looking results
- Effective wrinkle treatment
- Less pain
- Short recovery time
- Longer lasting results
- Small amount of side effects, which most are very short-lived
- No or very few touch-ups
You should be aware that Volbella is not meant to plump or increase the volume of the lips like most other fillers on the market. Volbella is designed to fill fine lines and recreate the natural shape of the lip.
What are the Potential Side Effects of Volbella?
Like most other dermatological treatments, Juvederm Volbella does have some side effects. However, most of the side effects are temporary and mild. Here are some side effects that Volbella can have:
- Small bumps
If any of the side effects last longer than a week, you should contact the dermatologist who completed the procedure.
