What is Juvéderm Volbella®?
Juvéderm Volbella® is a dermal filler commonly used in thin-skinned areas such as the lips and tear troughs. It’s perfect for adding subtle volume and smoothing out the appearance of fine lines. The Juvéderm family of products uses hyaluronic acid (a naturally-occurring substance found in the body) to temporarily plump up areas of the face and body.
How Juvéderm Volbella works
Volbella® uses Allergan’s patented VycrossTM technology to help provide longer and smoother-looking volume. It is a clear hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that immediately plumps up skin. HA is what hydrates and plumps up our skin. By placing the gel where HA is lacking, we are essentially restoring a vital ingredient back into the skin.
What to expect during your appointment
We will first examine your face to determine which injectable and how much product will provide the best outcome. The 15-30 minute procedure will involve a series of injections into the desired areas. Because of the infused lidocaine, the procedure is virtually painless. However, we do have a number or pain reducing methods you can choose from to further minimize discomfort.
Length of results
Your results will depend on several factors: the severity of collagen and fat loss, where the filler is placed and how much product was used. Typically, patients receiving Volbella® will return in 1-2 months to get a touch-up. This will prolong the final results for a few more months.
