What is Volbella?
Lip augmentation and dermal fillers have become a very popular trend in recent times. Lips with fine lines and wrinkles can dramatically age the face and lack of moisture in mature skin can cause the lips to look downturned and thin. For this reason, people are often on the hunt for a natural, subtle way to plump their lips and create a more youthful appearance. Volbella is a premier choice for patients looking for a quick and easy way to enhance their lips.
Volbella is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler used to augment and restore volume to the lips. Owned by the creators of Botox, Volbella stands out from other dermal fillers due to its thinner consistency and more natural, longer lasting results. Due to a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), Volbella is also less likely to absorb water, resulting in reduced swelling after treatment and a more natural looking lip.
Consultation and Pre-Surgery
Prior to the procedure, the patient will have a consultation to discuss expectations and preferences for lip shape and fullness. Volbella can correct several different lip concerns, making it the perfect choice for almost every type of patient. All the different treatment types will be explained by the doctor, who will then make recommendations based on the patient’s symptoms and desired results.
Volbella is used for all of the following lip concerns:
- Vertical Lip Lines – often called “smoker’s lines” or “water bottle” lips, these are caused by sun damage or repetitive gestures over time
- Lip Outline Contouring – forming a new outline for the lips, creating a curvier shape without projecting them forward
- Lip Augmentation – injection directly into the lips to create a fuller, “poutier” appearance
Prior to the procedure, topical anesthetic will be applied to the lip area to make the patient more comfortable and relaxed during treatment. Volbella is then injected into the target areas of the lips until the desired results have been achieved. The entire procedure only takes a few minutes to complete and patients may leave immediately after.
Recovery and Results
After treatment, patients will experience sore, swollen lips, however the swelling will go down within 48-hours. Lips may also be red and tender to touch, so excessive exercise should be avoided. After the swelling has subsided, patients will be left with natural, plump lips and little to no bruising. Results of Volbella last up to a full year, making it one of the longest lasting dermal fillers on the market.
