Patients who want to receive a subtle augmentation of their lips may want to try Volbella. Volbella is one of the newest dermal fillers on the market and helps correct the fine lines and wrinkles on and around the lips. When being treated with Volbella, patients generally see immediate results with minor side effects.
Volbella is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Using Vycross technology, this treatment helps augment the lips and correct those fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Approved by the Federal Drug Administration in 2016, Volbella is one of the newest dermal filler treatments available.
Volbella injections must be administered by a licensed and trained medical professional. In addition, the person giving the injections should have experience in this type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure. Most patients visit a medical day spa or a dermatologist to receive their Volbella treatments.
Most patients experience long-lasting results for up to one year. The results are significantly longer than some other dermal fillers on the market today. Some patients do require touch-up injections around nine months after the initial treatment.
Volbella must be administered by a trained and licensed healthcare professional. During the treatment, the doctor injects Volbella into the skin using a fine needle. The injection contains a small amount of lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during the treatment. The entire treatment should take between 30 and 45 minutes.
Volbella treatment costs depend on the number of injections needed. On average, Volbella costs $400 to $600 per syringe. Most patients require one to two needles for each treatment. The number of injections depends upon the treatment area and the patient’s desired results.
There is no downtime after receiving Volbella injections. Patients can leave the doctor’s office immediately after the treatment and can return to their routine. Swelling may occur, but that will subside in one to two days. If needed, apply a cold compress to help reduce the swelling.
Many patients report seeing results immediately after receiving Volbella injections. However, it could take two weeks before seeing optimal results. Some patients report having redness and swelling at the injection sites, subside in a day or two.
Though minimal, side effects are possible when receiving Volbella injections. Common side effects include redness, swelling, and slight irritation at the injection site. In addition, some patients have reported redness on the face for several days post-treatment. Allergic reaction, blood vessel occlusion, and granuloma are possible, but rare.
Some patients experience mild discomfort while receiving Volbella injections. There is little discomfort because each injection includes a small amount of lidocaine to help ease the pain experienced during the injection process. Some patients continue to experience a slight discomfort post-treatment, but that subsides in about 24 hours
Since Volbella is made from hyaluronic acid, a chemical naturally produced in the body, it is considered a very safe dermal filler. Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or primary care physician about questions regarding the safety of receiving Volbella injections.
Volbella offers patients a non-surgical treatment to help reduce the appearance of fine lines around the lips. Those wanting to receive a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to augment their lips should speak with a medical professional trained and experienced in administering Volbella.

No, JUVÉDERM® can be used as a lip filler and to plump up lip borders and get rid of lip wrinkles, but it can also be used for much more than that. It can be used to eliminate those lines around the corners of the mouth which are sometimes called marionette lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and it can also be used as an earlobe filler.
As you get older, your skin starts to lose elasticity and sag. That’s a natural part of the aging process. As the body gets older, it produces less collagen, which is the substance that causes young skin to be firm, plump and to have good elasticity. Many factors can affect how your skin ages. Heredity plays a role in how you look as you age. So does your lifestyle. If you drank a lot or smoked often or spent a lot of time in the sun those things all have an impact on your skin. But JUVÉDERM® can give you back the youthful appearance that you want even if you didn’t treat your skin very kindly in the past.
Your lips also lose fullness as you get older. And while there are cosmetics that can temporarily plump up your lips, JUVÉDERM® is a long last solution to solve all your skin issues. You will be amazed at how easy it is to look like the best version of yourself even as you get older.
The effects are natural looking because it is made from a natural product. Unlike other types of fillers that look fake, JUVÉDERM® simply enhances your appearance to make you younger. It’s not a drastic change like you may see with an invasive surgical procedure, but it is a slow and natural enhancement to your skin.
JUVÉDERM® injections don’t take long at all, just like Kybella. They don’t require any type of invasive surgery, and you will notice results immediately. Most of the time the treatment takes anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on what is being done. You can even get it done on your lunch break. Our specialist may use lidocaine or a topical anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable for you, but in general, it’s not that uncomfortable for most people.
