Juvederm Volbella treatment results in smoother, fuller, and supple lips with the result lasting for up to 12 months.
The treatment is easily tolerated. Patients are first numbed with a numbing cream. In addition, the Volbella gel contains lidocaine, a numbing agent. The addition of lidocaine to the gel further reduces any discomfort from the treatment. As the treatment proceeds the tissues get more and more numb over time. For these reasons, nearly every patient will have a comfortable experience.
Patients resume their normal activities immediately after leaving the office. Some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising, which should last for no more than a few days.
Juvederm Volbella can also be combined with the other Juvederm fillers, including Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Juvederm Voluma to further enhance the result. When this is done, the facial contours and cheekbones can be enhanced, the nasolabial and other facial folds can be reduced, and fine lines and wrinkles in the face softened.
