A beautiful smile can bring your entire face together, creating harmony and balance. However, just like the rest of your body, your mouth is susceptible to aging, which usually comes in the form of loss of lip volume and definition and the appearance of vertical lip lines. The latest product to join the Juvéderm family was specially designed to address these concerns—and we are pleased to now offer VOLBELLA to our patients.
“I cannot thank you enough for the amazing treatment! You went several extra miles with everything you did—and the care with which you approached it.” Read more Patient Testimonials
Although VOLBELLA is similar to other multi-use, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, it stands out for a very good reason: it was specifically formulated with lips in mind, using the special VYCROSS® technology to provide long-lasting results. In fact, clinical studies demonstrated that 98% of patients who had VOLBELLA injections were still pleased with their results for up to a year.
The advanced VOLBELLA formula combines varying molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring carbohydrate that keeps your skin supple, to ensure your end-result is naturally smooth. It also provides us with greater control over your outcome, as it allows us to customize treatment to address your specific needs and provide you with a natural enhancement rather than a drastic change.
The best way to determine which product or combination of treatments will yield the best results for you is by consulting with Janice Pastorek, B.S.N., R.N. Most patients who are concerned with an aging mouth respond very well to VOLBELLA, though Janice can help you explore your options and design your treatment plan during a private consultation.
If you both agree that VOLBELLA is a good fit for you, Janice will begin by examining your mouth so she can place injections in the best areas to diminish lip lines and refine your natural lip contours. Using a very fine needle, she will administer the product to these areas—a process which should be very comfortable, as the VOLBELLA formula includes the anesthetic lidocaine.
Expect your appointment to take around 30 minutes, after which time you may resume your day. While it’s perfectly normal to experience a bit of tenderness, redness, and swelling at the injection sites, side effects should be mild and short lived.
