Already one of the most popular brands of dermal fillers, Juvéderm continues to improve its collection with the introduction of Juvéderm Volbella XC injectable lip treatment. While Juvéderm Ultra XC is designed add varying levels of volume to the lips, Volbella focuses on a subtle addition of volume and lift. Volbella is also designed to smooth the vertical lines on the lips for a more youthful appearance and better lipstick application. At Bella Lago Aesthetics in Tahoe/Truckee, California, Registered Nurse and certified Allergan® master injector Christine Geis creates a unique Volbella treatment plan for each patient. Christine performs consultations where she listens to the patient's needs, concerns, and goals before discussing different injectable options, laser treatments, or cosmetic procedures by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden that will produce their best results.
During consultations and treatments, patients can learn more about the Allergan Brilliant Distinctions® program that offers specials savings and rewards for patients when they receive any Allergan brand treatment, including Volbella, other Juvéderm fillers, BOTOX, Kybella, and Latisse. Learn more about the program at the Allergan website.
The best candidates for Juvéderm Volbella and Ultra XC treatments want to add subtle volume and lift to their lips. The treatment may be customized to address the upper lip, lower lip, or both. Volbella can also help patients correct vertical lines on the lips for smoother makeup application.
What to Expect
Volbella and Ultra XC injections can be performed in the office, usually on the same day as the patient's consultation. Like all Juvéderm products, Ultra XC and Volbella's formula contains lidocaine to minimize patient discomfort during the treatment, so numbing cream or an additional local anesthetic is usually not needed. Once the lips are cleaned and the injection sites are marked, Volbella or Ultra XC will be carefully injected into the lips. The results of Volbella and Ultra XC last up to one year and can be repeated to maintain results.
Patients are able to leave as soon as they feel able after their Volbella or Ultra XC treatment and may return to normal activities. Patients may notice some swelling or redness in the treated areas, but this should be mild and last no more than one month. Some results will be visible right away, but the final results should appear in 2 – 4 weeks.
