What is Volbella?
Volbella is a Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler designed to treat Perioral Rhytids or “Perioral Lines”, more commonly known as fine lines and/or “smoker’s lines” surrounding the lips. The injectable treatment utilizes Vycross, a light formulation of hyaluronic acid which is a substance naturally found and accepted by our body. When administered by a professional, the product works to subtly enhance your lips and gently correct damage. Volbella safely re-hydrates your lips without over-plumping them, offering a natural and visibly pleasing option for lip augmentation. Your lips will look and feel softer after just one Volbella treatment.
The FDA-approved filler offers smoother and more filled lips for over a year following treatment. Ideal Volbella candidates include patients aged 21 and older who have lost hyaluronic acid in the lip region as a result of aging, smoking and medical factors. Patients with severe allergies, a history of anaphylaxis, and women who are currently pregnant and/or breastfeeding should not receive Volbella injections. Dr. Humble will review your medical history to determine if the treatment will be able to be administered.
How Volbella is Performed
Since Volbella is formulated with Lidocaine, the procedure is relatively painless for the patient. However, should you find yourself more sensitive to pain, our clinical team will discuss additional numbing agents prior to your treatment for optimal comfort The entire procedure is performed in thirty minutes and will immediately provide contour, shape and volume to your lips. Dr. Humble works with each patient to obtain tailored and symmetrical results fit to their aesthetic goal.
Following the procedure slight redness or swelling is common. This can be treated with an ice pack and use of arnica gel. We recommend taking it easy the day after treatment, resisting exercise and sun exposure to offer your body time to heal and minimize bruising/swelling. Patients who receive Volbella will be able to return to daily activities after 24 hours post-treatment.
