What is Juvéderm Volbella®?
Juvéderm Volbella® is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to plump the lips, cheeks, and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth.
What can I expect from the Juvéderm Volbella® treatment?
Volbella® injections typically take about 20 minutes to administer in the doctor’s office. The gel formula contains lidocaine to minimize discomfort, so there is no need for additional anesthesia. You may experience redness or bruising at the injection sites immediately after treatment but this should dissipate after 24-48 hours. Furthermore, it is best to avoid extreme temperatures and extended sun exposure for two weeks after administration.
What is the active ingredient in Juvéderm Volbella®?
The active ingredient in Volbella® is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance naturally produced within the skin. As we get older, the levels of HA present in the skin begin to decline, resulting in a loss of volume and sunken or sagging cheeks. Volbella® integrates into the existing collagen and elastin in the skin tissue to offer greater support and elasticity. This can provide a noticeable smoothing and firming affect to the skin and lend the facial structure more substantial definition.
What results can I expect from the Juvéderm Volbella® treatment?
The results are visible immediately after the procedure, but it could take up to two weeks to get your final results. There is very little or no downtime required following a treatment with Volbella®. Most patients can resume all of their typical daily activities right away after their session. Volbella® is not only an effective treatment method, but it is long lasting as well. For many patients, the results will last for a period of up to 12 months.
