With age, many women begin to lose some of the fullness and definition they once had in their lips. Many of these women don’t want to undergo a dramatic lip augmentation procedure; they just want to achieve beautiful lips that still look natural. JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is a cutting-edge new injectable that can be used to add subtle improvements in lip shape and volume without unnecessary downtime or discomfort.

What is JUVEDERM VOLBELLA®?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is a new lip augmentation treatment that was FDA-approved in June of 2016. This product allows patients to add natural-looking definition, volume, and symmetry to the lips. It can also be used to address wrinkles and fine lines near the mouth. A single injection session of this product can provide patients with subtle results that can last up to one year.
How Does it Work?
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is part of the JUVEDERM® line of products. Like other JUVEDERM® products, it is formulated with hyaluronic acid. But what sets JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® apart from other hyaluronic acid based fillers is the way it is created. This product is formulated using VYCROSS™ technology that improves the way hyaluronic acid chains cross-link together. In short, this allows for less product to be used, which means less swelling and discomfort for patients. This also means that patients achieve lip augmentation results from treatment that are always subtle, natural-looking, and long-lasting.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Each JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® treatment takes about 20 minutes to complete and features only a minimal amount of downtime or discomfort. In fact, this product is indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, that makes JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® injections significantly more comfortable than other, similar lip augmentation products.
While side effects like redness, swelling or bruising are common, these typically subside within a few hours of receiving treatment.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone interested in subtly improving the appearance of his or her lips is a potential candidate for a JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® treatment. However, before undergoing treatment, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our experienced medical staff. During this appointment, they will take into account your medical history, aesthetic goals, and current state of health in order to decide if JUVEDERM VOLBELLA® is right for you.
