Juvederm Volbella is a new addition to the hyaluronic acid injectible family approved by the FDA in early 2016. Hyaluronic acid is the naturally occurring substance that works to retain the moisture in the skin. It binds to water, filling in spaces between elastin and collagen fibers, plumping up the skin and giving it a more youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid levels decrease by as much as 50% over the age of 50, and unsightly lines often begin to form around the mouth. At Marcus Medical, our highly-trained specialists can enhance and restore a more youthful appearance by administering Volbella injections to subtly augment lip volume and soften the appearance of lines around your lips.
What Makes Volbella Better for Lips and Lip Augmentation?
Allegran, Juvederm Volbella ‘s manufacturer, has customized the formula with a lower hyaluronic acid content for a filler that causes less swelling and downtime and produces longer-lasting results. It is a soft, smooth injectable gel suitable for smoothing perioral lines (wrinkles and lines around the mouth) and for adding subtle volume to the lips. Volbella has been formulated with a proprietary technology that blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. This process yields a smooth filler, for a natural look and feel, and contributes to the lasting results achieved with the product. Allegran reports that, in clinical trials, Volbella was shown to effectively increase lip fullness and soften lines around the mouth for one full year in most subjects.
Benefits of Volbella injections include:
- Subtle, natural looking lip filler – not too full or bold
- “Lunchtime lip” – less swelling so it can be done with minimal downtime (for example, the featured before and after photos were taken 5 minutes apart)
- Long-lasting results - softened lines and enhanced lip volume through one full year in most cases
In addition to naturally restoring or augmenting lip volume, Volbella injections can be used to define the contours of your lips, enhance your “Cupid’s bow,” correct down-turned mouth corners, and soften marionette lines along the chin.
What to Expect with Juvederm Volbella
During your initial consultation at Marcus Medical Spa, we will carefully evaluate your facial anatomy and design the most appropriate treatment to subtly address the lines around your mouth and enhance lip volume and appearance. In your Manhattan Beach Volbella treatment, we will use very small needles to inject the filler directly where it is needed.
Juvederm Volbella contains Lidocaine anesthetic, so the treatments are virtually painless. Volbella absorbs less water than traditional fillers, which means less swelling and downtime and more comfortable treatments. With very little, if any, bruising or swelling, normal activities can usually be resumed immediately after treatment.
