Volbella 101: Everything You Need to Know
Volbella is a relatively new injectable that was approved by the FDA in 2016. Volbella is one of the most sought-after injectable treatments worldwide for diminishing fine lines around the mouth and creating a natural enhancement for lips. Below, we will discuss everything you need to know about Volbella.
What is Volbella?
Volbella is a dermal filler made by Juvéderm that is specifically used to create more definition in the lips and correct fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. Volbella uses an injection of Hyaluronic acid to treat the area. Volbella is able to treat lips more precisely without making lips look too puffy or large, providing a more natural look in the lips.
Who is Volbella for?
Volbella is typically used specifically for the lips and the mouth. Volbella is the first FDA-approved injection to improve smoker lines—also called perioral lines—around the mouth. Volbella has become a safe and effective solution for people unhappy with the lines around their mouth, whether caused by smoking or not. Volbella candidates are often people who may also want to increase the size of their lips in a natural way. Volbella uses hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring material found in the body, making it safe for almost anyone.
How long do Volbella injections take and how long does Volbella last?
Volbella injections usually take 30-45 minutes, although the exact amount of time your injections will take depends on your desired results – the more extensive the results, the more you’ll end up having injected. Because Volbella uses hyaluronic acid, the injection produces long-lasting results in the lips.
Does Volbella hurt?
You may feel a small prick during the injection, but other than that Volbella is relatively painless. Volbella is injected using a very fine needle, and the syringe includes a small amount of lidocaine, which assists with lessening discomfort during the injection process. Our providers can also apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area prior to your injections to ensure a pain-free experience!
How much does Volbella cost?
Volbella costs, on average, $400-600 per syringe. Usually 1-2 syringes are needed on each patient per treatment. The number of syringes you will require will depend on the results you’re trying to achieve.
When will I see Volbella results?
The results from Volbella injections are relatively instant, but it may take up to 2 weeks to see your final results. You may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising immediately following your Volbella treatment, but this should subside within 24-48 hours.
Volbella is a great option for anyone looking to perfect their pout and improve the fine lines and wrinkles around their mouth. Volbella can successfully take years of your appearance with one short treatment.
