JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is a clear Hyaluronic-based gel injectable filler used today to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth. The procedure is an effective and natural way to replace your skin’s natural Hyaluronic acid loss over time, bringing back its volume and softening unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is used to plump up your lips to make them fuller, it is also commonly used to diminish vertical lip lines (a.k.a. smoker’s lines), accentuate the border of your lips, and enhance the cupid’s bow (the “M” part of your mid-upper lip).
This great non-surgical option with minimal downtime allows patients to get immediate, natural results lasting up to a year and potentially longer.
Wilmington Dermatology Center’s free consultations gives patients the time to discuss their areas of concern before the provider will determine which product will best suite your needs. We evaluate the main areas of concern and work together to identify where the patient will receive the most benefit.
Once a JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatment plan has been determined, Wilmington Dermatology professionals apply a topical Lidocaine-based numbing cream to the area(s) being treated. The numbing cream takes affect after 10-15 minutes, whereupon the area is thoroughly cleansed and prepped with an alcohol swab. A needle is then used at the appropriate injection sites; and depending on the area being treated, the procedure may require multiple injections. A typical visit lasts 30-40 minutes.
Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is formulated with an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight technology, which improves the cross-linking efficiency of HA (Hyaluronic Acid) chains. This more effective cross-linking allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling. The Vycross technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Not only is there less downtime, the treatment itself is made as pain free as possible by the built-in lidocaine anaesthetic. Results are seen immediately after the procedure and full correction within a week. There is minimal downtime associated with JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA®. Patients are given a cooling agent to apply to the treated areas immediately following the procedure and results are expected to last up to a year.
The cost of JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is dependent on the number of syringes used and the areas treated at the time of the appointment. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is a technique-sensitive treatment—so be sure to look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA.. An optimal treatment plan and cost will be discussed during the free consultation with a provider.
