Your lips may have been full of life and volume at one point, but just like other areas of your body, your lips show signs of age over time. If you notice that your lips are becoming thinner, know that our cosmetic surgeon in Lisle, Il can provide you with a multitude of options to restore a full, more youthful pout. Juvederm Volbella is an alternative option to standard Juvederm options. It was made available for use in October 2016 and approved by the FDA.
What Does It Do?
Juvederm Volbella has a gel-like consistency and it is ideal for adding fullness to the lips, improving lip symmetry, and reducing the signs of aging around the mouth. If you’re hoping to contour your lips and change their shape or overall appearance, Juvederm Volbella is a great option for you. It’s composed of a proprietary form of hyaluronic acid which is a sugar found naturally in the body. It also utilizes Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology to help results last longer. Finally, it also contains a small amount of lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during treatment.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
There are many people who can benefit from Juvederm Volbella. It’s intended for adults who are 21 and over and is considered safe for the majority of people to use.
What to Expect During Treatment
The treatment itself typically takes around 30 minutes to complete. You will be able to return to business as usual following the treatment, as the side effects are minimal. First, one of our injection specialists will clean off the treatment area. Keep in mind that Juvederm Volbella contains minimal amounts of lidocaine as well, helping to numb the pain for patients. Additionally, the needle is extremely fine and won’t cause any major discomfort. Most patients only feel a small pinch during treatment. After the treatment is over, we will go over post-treatment instructions and you will be able to return to your normal daily activities.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results are seen almost immediately and are designed to last up to a full year. You’ll be able to see the best results in just a few days after the initial appointment once the swelling has gone down.
