What is Volbella®?
Volbella® is an innovative cosmetic filler that’s specifically designed to rejuvenate the lips and mouth area. This injectable filler enhances lip volume, improves the lip contours, and softens the appearance of fine lines and depressions near the corners of the mouth.
Volbella® is manufactured much like Voluma®, another volumizing filler from Allergan, using Allergan’s patented Vycross™ technology. This advanced fabrication process results in a smoother, gel-like formulation that delivers natural-looking, consistent results that last for up to a year. This unique formulation also contains a small amount of lidocaine, which minimizes discomfort during and after the procedure.
What distinguishes Volbella® from other cosmetic injectables is its unique formulation that was specifically developed to address cosmetic concerns around the mouth area. The filler’s smooth, gel-like consistency provides subtle results, leaving the lips soft to the touch and more natural-looking in appearance.
How do I know I can trust Volbella® with my smile?
Volbella® is a hyaluronic filler, much like other Juvederm® products, that is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body. The hyaluronic acid in Volbella® gives it a smoother, gel-like consistency, which allows the product to gently enhance the lips and soften the appearance of fine lines around the mouth. The Vycross™ technology used to formulate Volbella® gives it a lower hydrophilic composition, which also contributes to the subtle, natural-looking results patients often achieve with this product. Volbella is administered using an ultra-fine needle to prevent overfilling and ensure accurate results. Volbella® also has one of the highest satisfaction rates out of all injectable fillers, with more than 98% of patients reporting that their cosmetic goals have been achieved following the product’s injection.
How long does Volbella® last?
The longevity of Volbella® is another factor that sets it apart from other injectable cosmetics. More than 80 percent of patients who’ve undergone Volbella® injections report complete satisfaction with maintaining the improvements in their appearance for up to 12 months after the initial treatment.
What can Volbella® lip injections do for you?
- Soften the appearance of vertical lines that surround the lips
- Shape and define the outline of the lips
- Add volume and fullness to the lips
- Enhance the cupid’s bow of the upper lip
- Fill in the “marionette lines” that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
Will there be swelling after Volbella®?
Mild swelling and bruising are common side effects of most injectable cosmetic treatments, but Volbella’s lower water absorption rate results in less swelling in comparison to other injectable fillers. Most patients experience a short, quick recovery, and any swelling or bruising should last no more than a few days. Adverse reactions to Volbella® injections are extremely rare, given the product’s high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body.
