Juvéderm® Volbella is a new FDA-approved injectable filler that naturally and instantaneously adds subtle volume to lips and smooths lip lines for a more youthful full appearance. The new hyaluronic acid (HA) formula results in less swelling than other fillers, and has long-lasting results up to a year. Volbella is used to smooth lip lines, which develop with age and features a different cross-linking technology resulting in a softer and more cohesive filler, for smoother natural looking results that last for a longer amount of time.
Q: How does Juvéderm® Volbella work?
A: Volbella is formulated as a gel, containing Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a substance naturally produced in the body to attract and retain moisture, and when injected, adds natural volume that we lose with age.
Q: What makes Volbella® compared to other fillers?
A: Volbela® is unique because it is the first lip augmentation filler that is FDA approved to address perioral lines, or smoker lines around the mouth. Just like VOLUMA ®, Volbella® uses the filler technology by Allergan called VYCROSS®, a proprietary filler innovation from Allergan, which yields smooth dermal filler products that also help the product last longer.
Q; What areas can be treated with Juvéderm® Volbella?
A: Volbella can add fullness to thinning lips, fill ‘smoker’s lines’ (fine lines above the lip), fill in the curved depression running under the eye (tear troughs), and replace lost volume under the eyes (for hollows and shadows) which can make you appear more tied and old.
Q: How long does Juvéderm® Volbella® XC last?
A: Studies show that 98% of people who had Volbella injected into their lips reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved and results lasted up to 12 months.
Q: What is the difference between Juvéderm® Volbella and Juvéderm® Ultra XC?
A: Juvéderm® Ultra XC adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips. Juvéderm® Volbella® XC is the most recent addition to the collection—tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines, and other areas of subtle correction.
Q: How is Juvederm® Volbella Different from Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus?
A: While Volbella, Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus are all hyaluronic acid-based gels, Volbella is formulated with Vycross technology, which makes its consistency softer and smoother. This unique cross linking technology (the process of chemically binding the hyaluronic acid’s individual chains to transform them into a gel) offers lasting results that are more specialized to specific areas.
Q: What Makes Volbella Different from Other Lip Fillers Like Restylane Silk?
A: Both fillers give you fuller-looking lips and decrease the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, however Juvéderm® Volbella® XC lasts up to a year, versus Restylane® Silk, that lasts about six months. Juvéderm® Volbella® XC is one of the best options when it comes to adding volume to lips. Silk works better for smoothing out the lips and fine lines.
Q: Is the Juvéderm® Volbella® XC Treatment Painful?
A: Juvéderm® Volbella® XC contains 0.3 percent lidocaine, which lessens the pain at the injection site. Volbella’s smooth consistency makes injecting it easy and effortless, decreasing any discomfort during the treatment. We can also add to your comfort with additional topical numbing or ice.
Q: Will the Juvéderm® Volbella® XC Treatment Cause Swelling?
A: As with all injectable fillers, you may experience some minor swelling and slight redness post treatment, which should only last a few days to a week if present. Some bruising may also develop at the injection site.
Q: Do Volbella® injections hurt?
A: You can expect minimal discomfort while receiving Volbella® injections for lip augmentation and fine lines as it is formulated with a small amount of lidocaine. Q: Is Volbella® safe? A: Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in your body making Volbella® safe for adults age 21 and older. Volbella® restores some of the lost hyaluronic acid due to aging in order to softly add volume back into the lips and surrounding skin.
