As we age, we start to lose volume in our lips, and fine lines can start to appear around them. Volbella, an injectable in the Juvederm family, can restore plumpness in your lips in order to help them appear younger and more rejuvenated, all while keeping your look completely natural.

If you are over the age of 21, suffer from fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, and lack volume or fullness in your lips, Juvederm Volbella may be the perfect cosmetic treatment for you.

Why Volbella?

Volbella is a minimally invasive non-surgical cosmetic treatment that restores natural-looking fullness to the lips and the area around the mouth. Not only is the procedure virtually painless, there’s no downtime involved. It’s a convenient and reliable treatment for those who are looking to enhance their lips.

Volbella is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid plays a significant role in hydrating the skin and making it appear plump and supple. It also aids in the body’s natural collagen production.

To sum up, Volbella can:
• Add volume to your lips
• Reduce the appearance of smoker’s lines
• Improve the borders of your lips

Before Getting Volbella Injections

You should avoid taking aspirin and ibuprofen before getting a Volbella injection, as these medications increase the risk of bleeding or bruising.

During your consultation with Dr. Bapna, he will ask you about your medical history and any medications you are currently taking. He will also discuss what your expectations from this procedure are and answer any questions or concerns you may have about getting Volbella injections.

The Treatment

Before you receive your Volbella injections, Dr. Bapna will mark the targeted areas. He will then use a very fine needle to inject Volbella into these areas. This procedure typically takes about fifteen minutes to complete; however, depending on the amount of injections you are receiving, the length of the procedure may vary.

The Results of Volbella

You will see results immediately following your Volbella injections, and the results can last up for up to twelve months or sometimes even longer. Once the results have faded, you may come in for a follow-up treatment to maintain your results.

There is no downtime after getting a Volbella treatment. As with any injectable, there is a chance you may experience some mild side effects, such as redness, pain, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. These minor inconveniences typically subside in a few days.

You can return to your normal daily activities after getting Volbella injections. You should stay out of the sun after your treatment; however, if you must be in direct sunlight, apply sunscreen to protect your skin.
