The newest member of the Allergan family is a game changer for those who like the idea of fillers, but crave more subtle, natural-looking results. Volbella is recommended for smoother, softer consistency that mimics the natural feel of your lips for a longer time.
A study showed that 98% of people who had Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved; with results lasting up to 12 months.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is a new dermal filler for the lips and Peri-oral are designed to:
• Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
• Accentuate the border of your lips
• Slightly plump up your lips to make them fuller
• Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
• Achieve symmetry
How Volbella Works
Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are commonly seen to last up to twelve months.
What to Expect
There is minimal to no swelling or bruising, so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. You will be provided with an ice pack to take home, which lessens the redness and swelling.
As smoker’s lines are difficult to treat, especially if they have been neglected, a JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatment can be combined with some laser procedures that stimulate collagen and improve the final rejuvenation of the mouth area.
