How Does It Work?
Juvéderm Volbella® was created with both low and high molecular weight technology that is designed to improve cross-linking of HA chains. This means they were able to use less HA than in other similar injections, reducing the amount of swelling patients experience. The patented technology used in the product has created a smooth gel, which allows for the creation of more natural looking results. In addition, the Volbella® gel absorbs less water, even further reducing the swelling in the area. This means patients will experience less downtime and be back to their regular routine in no time. With the built-in lidocaine, there is less pain and discomfort at the injection sites. Patients can expect to see results for up to 12 months after their treatment.
In most cases, Juvéderm Volbella® is used to correct issues with the lips and general mouth area. The product is often used to boost lip volume for fuller lips, further define the contours of the lips, smooth vertical lines around the mouth, plump up the lines going from the corners of the mouth downward and decrease the downturn of the corners of the mouth.
Can It Be Used with Other Treatments?
One of the biggest questions people have is whether it can be combined with other treatment options. The answer depends on the purpose. If you will be using Juvéderm Volbella® to eliminate smoker’s lines, the vertical lines that often form around the mouth, the answer is yes. This injectable can be combined with laser procedure that are designed to increase collagen production and create a positive change around the mouth, creating a more youthful appearance overall.
What Should You Expect?
If you choose to use Juvéderm Volbella® to improve your appearance, it’s important to know what to expect. First and foremost, most patients experience no swelling or bruising, which means you can get right back to your regular activities after treatment. You will likely need to use an ice pack for a short period of time to help with redness or any swelling that may occur.
