What is JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA®?
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA® is a brand new hyaluronic acid based dermal filler used to augment the lips and surrounding areas. This injectable was recently FDA-approved on June 1, 2016.
This new treatment can be used to:
- Boost lip volume
- Smooth vertical creases
- Plump marionette lines
- Add symmetry
Best of all, the results of this versatile dermal filler are FDA-approved to last for up to one year, giving patients results that are both natural-looking and long-lasting.
How Does it Work?
JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA® is formulated with VYCROSS™ technology that uses a combination of low and high molecular weight technology to improve the cross-linking efficiency of hyaluronic acid chains. Basically, this technology allows JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA® to utilize hyaluronic acid more efficiency, meaning that less product is used in the treatment area. Because less product is used, patients experience less downtime, swelling, and discomfort than is normally associated with similar treatments. This also makes the results of this treatment significantly more natural looking and feeling.
What are the Benefits of JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA®?
This product brings patients a wide range of benefits they can’t get with other injectable lip augmentation treatments, including:
- Little to no downtime
- Less swelling
- Less pain
- More natural integration into the body’s tissues
- Lip augmentation that looks and feels natural
- Results that are FDA-approved to last for one year
What can I Expect from a Treatment Session?
Because JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA® is formulated with lidocaine, these injections are significantly less uncomfortable to receive than other hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. The VYCROSS™ technology used in JUVEDERM® VOLBELLA® leads to less downtime, swelling, and bruising after treatment.
Following an injection session, patients should avoid excessive exposure to the sun as well as time in saunas or steam rooms for at least two weeks after treatment.
