Volbella is the newest filler approved by the FDA. Like its cousin, Voluma, Volbella comes from the makers of Botox, and is comprised of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid, but its defining characteristic is its ultra smooth, ultra fine, and ultra soft consistency, making it an ideal filler for pesky lines around the mouth, aka “smoker’s lines” (although these occur in non-smokers too!), and for those who want a very natural lip rejuvenation.
Volbella is part of the Juvederm Voluma family, uniquely characterized by VYCROSS technology, which through special efficient crosslinking, allows longer lasting results with minimal swelling. Volbella provides filling of wrinkles and lines, and shaping of the lips with minimal swelling effect, unlike other fillers on the market where you typically have a few days of swelling before the lips settle down. It is not meant to give you larger lips, but more a better defined, glossing, slight plumping effect, like wearing the best lip gloss you can imagine 24-7.
Volbella can be used in the lip areas:
Because Volbella is a durable, ultra smooth gel, other than the lips it can also be used for any fine, etched line or a thin-skinned area that needs softening of hollows. Examples include:
Dr. Chiu has perfected her TDI “Lip Glossing” technique with lip fillers. Her technique with Volbella, as well as other lip fillers is to achieved a “just kissed” look—where the lip is slightly plumped, has a glowing sheen, and a dewy appearance. Just a touch of sexy . . . and with Volbella, the results are so natural no one will know! Let’s say your secret will be sealed with a kiss . . . And it’s long lasting—up to a year!
Volbella is a “fine line” hyaluronic acid filler used to soften small etched lines, especially around the mouth. It is not meant to give “big” or “full” lips, it is for the most subtle of lip enhancements or to attack pesky vertical lip lines that are aging in appearance. It is also used for other fine etched lines including horizontal forehead lines, deep etched frown lines, and popularly to soften undereye dark circles.
Volbella typically lasts about 1 year in duration.
Volbella is pre-mixed with anesthetic, and we always use topical numbing to ensure a comfortable experience for our patients at The Derm Institute.
Volbella filler for the lip, etched lines, or undereye is unique in its formulation in that there is virtually no swelling or bruising, making this a true lunch time procedure.
