JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is an injectable filler based on hyaluronic acid (HA) that provides a desirable improvement in the lip contour, boosting volume, smoothing vertical creases (smoker’s lines), and achieving symmetry – all in a single comfortable treatment. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® can also be used to address under eye “tear trough” lines (off-label use).
What JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® injections can do for you:
- Diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines)
- Accentuate the border of your lips
- Enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip)
- Fill “tear trough” under-eye lines (off-label use)
How do JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® injections work?
Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA®with lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are commonly seen to last up to twelve months.
What are the typical areas that are treated?
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® injections smooth’s smoker’s lines around your mouth. Dr. Baroody also uses the injection under the eyes to address the “tear trough” area (this is an off-label use).
What to expect after a JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatment.
There is virtually no swelling or bruising, so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. You will be provided with an ice pack to take home, which lessens the redness and swelling.
