Is Volbella Right for Me?

Injectable lip fillers have come a long way in their time on the market. Volbella, approved relatively recently as an injectable filler, is a great way to subtly plump your lips for a perfect pout. Here’s how to know if it’s the right choice.

What is Volbella?

In the world of famous lips like those of Kylie Jenner, Scarlet Johansson, and Angelina Jolie, it’s clear that a full, plump pout is the way to go. However, many women’s genetics mean they are born with thinner lips. As the newest of the Juvéderm family of fillers, Volbella is an injectable that was recently approved by the FDA to help women attain natural-looking but fuller lips. Volbella also softens fine lines around the mouth that may come with age. Using Vycross, which blends different weights of hyaluronic acid, Volbella lasts for up to a year, which is much longer than many other fillers on the market.

Is Volbella the right fit?

Volbella is a great solution for any women who want fuller lips, whether they were born with thin lips or their lips have decreased in volume with age. Because Volbella has a smooth, uniform consistency, it is also perfect for those who want their dermal fillers to look subtle and natural. Volbella lasts for up to a year, making it ideal for those who do not want to get fillers on a regular basis; the long-lasting effects can even make it more affordable than other options, although financing is always available. It is also a great fit for those who want to correct naturally occurring asymmetry of the lips.

What is the Volbella treatment like?

As with any cosmetic procedure, the first step of Volbella treatment is to have a consultation with an expert team of dermatologists. By inquiring about medical history and areas that need to be corrected, your team will determine if Volbella is the right fit. During the procedure, local anesthetic numbs the site before injections are made with an ultra-fine needle. Then, the area may be massaged to spread the filler evenly, and ice will be applied to reduce discomfort and swelling.

Because of its plumping and anti-aging properties, Volbella has become a popular solution for those seeking fuller, natural-looking lips. For more information or to schedule a consultation, call William Franckle, MD, FACS at (856) 772-6500.
