Juvederm Volbella in Dallas & Fort Worth, TX

One of the most common complaints with aging is a loss of lip fullness and the small vertical lines that form around the mouth. These are commonly referred to as “smokers lines” and unfortunately can even form in patients who have never touched a cigarette. Juvederm Volbella is the newest FDA-approved addition to the Juvederm family, only recently becoming available in the US. It has already proven its results over the several years it has been used in Canada and Europe. It is indicated to add fullness to the lips and improve fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. This product is thin enough to reduce the appearance of perioral lines without causing a “lumpy” filler look. It is a good choice to immediately add subtle volume to the lips and improve overall contour, shape, and symmetry. Juvederm Volbella uses Allergan’s Vycross technology to create a smooth and natural enhancement with long-lasting results up to one year. This formula uses a slightly lower concentration of hyaluronic acid compared to the other products in the Juvederm line that helps improve durability and decrease swelling.

What can I expect during my treatment?

A topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment areas to minimize any injection discomfort. Juvederm Volbella also contains a small amount of lidocaine within the product that will further work to numb the area. Injections typically take around 30 minutes and you will be provided with an ice pack to take with you after the procedure. There is no significant downtime, but you may experience mild swelling, redness, and discomfort at the treatment site. This is typically short-lived and only lasts a few days.
