How Is Juvéderm Volbella Different From Other Dermal Fillers?
Volbella is the second extension of the Juvéderm® line of dermal fillers to specifically target the lips. The first was Juvéderm® Ultra XC. Ultra provides relatively dramatic volume to the lips, some would say “showy” volume. Volbella was created to add subtle volume to the lips. The FDA has approved both Ultra and Volbella for use on the lips.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Juvéderm Volbella?
We all know volume loss affects our cheeks and the areas around our mouth, but it also affects our lips. An unfortunate part of aging is that our lips thin with age. Others may not have lost volume but have never liked the size or shape of their lips. Others feel as if their lips aren’t as defined as they would like. Juvéderm® Volbella XC adds subtle volume and shape. It will help define the borders of your lips. Plus, it erases the vertical lines that come from volume loss. Juvéderm® Volbella XC does this without overtly enlarging the lips. Your results will look completely natural.
What Are The Benefits Of Choosing Juvéderm Volbella XC For My Lips?
When dermal fillers were first used for adding volume to the lips, the results could be overdone. Most women don’t want obviously larger lips. That’s the great thing about Volbella: it was developed to add volume and definition to the lips, but it does so in a very subtle fashion.
So, if you’ve never been happy with the shape, volume, or definition of your lips, Volbella can allow you to change that. Volbella can give you the lips you’ve always wanted. Or, if you feel that your lips have thinned as the years have passed, Volbella can return that lost volume.
What Are The Side Effects With Juvéderm Volbella XC?
Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and is the basis of Juvéderm® fillers, allergic reactions are virtually unheard of. Side effects are mild and uncommon. They include swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness, redness, itching, dryness, and discomfort at the injection sites. These usually pass in one to two days but can last for up to 30 days. If there is any issue with Volbella, an injection of an enzyme called hyaluronidase can instantly reverse the effects of the filler.
Is It Painful To Get Juvéderm Volbella Injections?
At BodiSculpting Specialists, we apply a topical anesthetic to your lips prior to your Volbella session. That takes the edge off. But you will feel a slight prick with the injections. Patients sometimes equate the feeling to that of a bee sting, without the residual pain from the sting.
Everyone’s tolerance for pain is different. Some people don’t request any topical numbing prior to their session. Others demand it. Let’s just say this — you can feel these injections, but the pain or sensation is easily manageable.
How Long Does A Juvéderm Volbella XC Session Last?
A Volbella session at BodiSculpting Specialists usually takes around 30 minutes.
How Long Can I Expect My Volbella Results To Last?
Juvéderm® Volbella XC adds volume and definition to the lips for up to one year. At that point, your body will absorb the hyaluronic acid and another session with our team at BodiSculpting Specialists is in order. Research has shown that subsequent sessions require less product to achieve the same results.
Will I Have Any Downtime After My Volbella Session
No. You can go right back to work or your normal activities. As mentioned above, you may have some slight swelling and tenderness at your injection sites, but it won’t preclude you from doing anything you want to do.
