Volbella is an injectable filler in the Juvéderm® family. Juvéderm injectables are made with hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar naturally found in your skin and responsible for keeping it hydrated and supple. When dermal fillers are injected into the skin, they provide youthful volume to fill in wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can also be used to augment your natural features. For example, Volbella can be used to enhance the lips and fill in fine lines around the mouth (called smoker’s lines).
Volbella is a good option for patients who have naturally thin lips or who have thin lips as a result of aging. The lips can become thinner with age as collagen breaks down, also contributing to the appearance of fine lines that form with puckering expressions like smoking or using a straw. The Grace + Grey team can help you explore your options with lip fillers and Volbella during your consultation, as well as recommend ways to prevent aging signs and maintain your results.
Volbella treatments are quick and can be performed within our comfortable office. To begin, our team will discuss your goals and determine whether Volbella is right for you. You’ll also receive an estimate of how much product is required for your ideal results. Once you’re ready, the product will be placed under the skin using a very fine needle. This can be sensitive for some patients, especially in areas like the lips, and we can supply a topical numbing cream as needed. You’ll be able to see instant results with Volbella and can ensure you achieve your desired look before you leave. Afterward, you can return to your normal activities.
You can return to your everyday schedule after Volbella, including work. However, you’ll have some restrictions including avoiding rigorous exercise for a few days and hot environments such as saunas or hot tubs. Additionally, avoid rubbing or touching the treatment area for the first 24 hours. It’s normal to experience some redness and sensitivity, especially in the lips, but it can be eased with a covered ice pack. To avoid bruising, don’t take blood-thinning medications such as ibuprofen before or after your procedure.
It can take 1-2 weeks for filler to settle into its final appearance. During this time, any swelling will subside and the product will draw moisture to provide volume. It can be helpful to drink plenty of water during this time. Volbella can last up to 18 months, at which point you can return for your next treatment to maintain results.
