  • Fill and define of the lips
  • Smooth the fine lines and wrinkles above the lips, so called “smoker’s lines”
  • Minimize the appearance of creases and wrinkles below the lips

how is volbella different from other fillers?

Volbella shares many qualities with other Juvederm fillers, including the Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to create a full and supple appearance to the face, often associated with youthful skin.   However, Volbella stands out due to its unique, thin consistency.  This allows the treatment to be injected areas very close to the skin’s surface, presenting more noticeable results.

Additionally, Volbella utilizes Juvederm’s exclusive VYCROSSTM technology, creating a pattern of cross-linked chains made of hyaluronic acid. This permits for slow degradation of the product once it has been administered in the skin, allowing Volbella’s results to be maintained for up to a full year.

how volbella works?

Volbella takes a more practical approach than other hyaluronic acid fillers. it minimizes wrinkles by attracting and retaining moisture in the treated area.  When it is injected into the upper layers of the skin, the hyaluronic acid attracts water to the area, giving patients a naturally soft feel to the skin.  Since Volbella is injected superficially, it is the perfect solution for treating wrinkles and fine lines around the lips. Volbella is ideal for patients who are not interested in increased volume, but are instead looking to simply reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips.

Volbella treatments are very time effective, with most treatments completed in less than 30 minutes and results seen immediately. Additionally, Volbella contains Licocaine, a numbing agent that ensures patient comfort both during and immediately after treatment. After treatment is complete, patients are free to continue with their day as normal.

How safe is volbella?

Volbella is certainly not a brand new dermal filler.  Volbella underwent rigorous testing and numerous clinical trials to confirm its safe, and effective properties before it was considered for FDA approval. Furthermore, a recent clinical study found that 98% of patients who received Volbella were satisfied with their results. Volbella is also currently being used throughout Europe, where it has gained a large following and shown very promising results. We are thrilled to be able to offer our patients this new advancement in dermal fillers and are excited for its release in the United States.
