Looking for fuller and more luscious lips? Volbella is an HA injectable that enhances the fullness of your lips.
Juvéderm® Volbella™ XC is a smooth, clear HA injectable gel used to add subtle plump to soften lip lines and provide overall lip fullness.
The substance Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring molecule with high concentrations in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a transparent odorless gel-like substance. Juvéderm Vollure cross-links or bonds molecularly to a uniform weight. For Juvéderm XC products with higher or lower HA, molecular weights convert to Vycross technology.
Galdmera's Restylane Kysse is the newest FDA approved lip filler. The Swiss pharmaceutical company's latest innovative HA technology offers a more natural appearance for fuller, plumper, longer-lasting lip augmentation result.
In clinical trials, Volbella proved to be a better choice for lip hydration and the right choice for individuals looking to revitalize their lips.
Compared to other Allergan HA fillers, Volbella XC outperforms as a lip filler in better hydration and a smoother consistency for a more natural appearance of a fuller, plumper lip.
The difference in the Allergan HA fillers is their purpose. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the thickest and heaviest Juvéderm product, used to plump-up sunken cheeks from the loss of elasticity and collagen depletion.
Juvéderm Volbella XC contains the least amount of HA, making it the lightest and thinnest of the three. Its consistency applies more evenly, making it an excellent filler for visible fine lines, fuller lips, and under-eye correction.
Volbella is an excellent choice for lips that still have a well-preserved structure while also providing better hydration over an extended period. In performance, Volbella lacks the robustness needed to use less product to create a fuller lip.
On average, a single dose of Juvéderm Volbella can run from $400 to $600 per syringe. The number of syringes used on a patient relates directly to the patient's desired results, but most patients average one or two needles for a single treatment.
Results are visible immediately; however, bruising and swelling may occur immediately after treatment and can disguise the final product for 24 to 48 hours. You should also limit your exposure to the sun and "minimize strenuous exercise" for the first day following the treatment.
The Volbella is injected directly into the lip using a small needle to inject just below the surface of your lip.
On average, patients with Volbella treatments reportedly go in for their second treatment 12 months after their first.
Side effects of Volbella are not uncommon. There's general swelling, bruising, lumps and bumps, pain, tenderness, redness, and on occasion, some patients experience discomfort and itching. All these side effects are temporary reactions during treatment overall though the treatment causes minimal pain.
Reportedly, patients recover from the treatment reactions of swelling in one to two days. Mild swelling can continue to linger for up to 7 to 10 days.
It can take a day or two for the swelling and bruising to subside. So patients are instructed to give their lips a few days to heal before attending any social or professional gatherings. Again, there is the possibility that recovery could take as long as two weeks.
Yes. The primary ingredient originates from the skin's natural moisturizer, hyaluronic acid, in the formula is a small bit of lidocaine to numb the injection site.
Initially, the FDA approved Volbella for correcting perioral lines, or vertical lip lines (sometimes called smoker lines) occurring around the mouth. Over time Volbella found a new purpose other than just for wrinkles, but as an excellent lip filler with lasting results. The treatment is minimally invasive with a short recovery time proving most people tolerate the injectable gel well and therefore a good selection.
