As we age, our lips can lose definition and volume, and lines can form around the mouth. Juvéderm Volbella is a dermal filler designed to add natural-looking fullness to the lips and smooth away lines around the mouth, also known as perioral lines. Made up of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm Volbella’s particles are smaller than other fillers, so it can successfully treat fine lines and delicate areas around the mouth.
Who is a Candidate for Juvéderm Volbella?
Adults over the age of 21 who wish to add a subtle fullness to their lips and/or treat perioral lines can often benefit from this filler. It is important for patients to share their medical history with their doctor, as well as whether they are pregnant or breastfeeding, as the safety of Juvéderm Volbella for use during pregnancy has not been studied.
The Juvéderm Volbella Procedure
During treatment, Juvéderm Volbella will be injected into the treatment areas using a thin needle. A benefit of this filler is that it is created with lidocaine to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Patients can expect to experience minimal discomfort during a treatment session.
Juvéderm Volbella Recovery
There is little to no downtime associated with Juvéderm Volbella injections. Patients may experience mild redness, tenderness, or swelling after the procedure, which should subside within a couple of weeks. It is advised that patients avoid strenuous activity and direct sun exposure to the treatment site for the first 24 hours after treatment.
While results are immediate after injection, they will improve as swelling subsides over time. Results from Juvéderm Volbella can last up to one year.
