From the makers of BOTOX® comes a new filler from Allergan® called Juvederm Volbella® for lip enhancement*. Volbella® can last up to 12 months with a more natural look and feel by increasing volume with minimal downtime and pain as compared to other lip fillers.
It is also so versatile its perfect for any superficial lifting of the skin in all areas of the face and is a perfect dermal filler to use in the tear trough area of the eye as it causes less swelling.
Volbella® is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin, using a unique patented technology called Vycross®; which allows for a longer-lasting, smoother, more natural looking filler that is easier to inject with less pain, bruising and swelling.
Volbella® can also be used to superficially lift other areas of the face such as the areas around the eyes (perioribital area) for crow’s feet, tear troughs, and hollows under the eyes. And since Volbella® is pre-mixed with Lidocaine, a numbing agent, there is less pain! While there may be some swelling after injection of Volbella® it usually lasts from one to two days and bruising tends to be rare. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment.
Typical Treatment Time: 30 minutes
Prep/Pre-Procedure: To minimize the risk of excessive bruising, please ensure that you have not taken any aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories one week prior to the procedure. Many patients find the use of arnica montana or bromelain prior to the injection also minimizes the risk of bruising. Keeping the area clean of any dirt or bacteria is advised, as clogged pores can be problematic for any procedure.
