Full lips with a well-defined border are a feature of youthful attractiveness. As we age, natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that give skin structure and fullness gradually decrease. This results in our lips and the surrounding area being vulnerable to loss of fullness.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is the latest advancement in the JUVÉDERM® range of facial fillers. It is FDA-approved and developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. Whether your lips were naturally thin or full, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® can be used to enhance lip shape, restore lost fullness, and correct any asymmetries to reestablish an overall balance and harmony. It’s also the only facial filler clinically proven to last up to 12 months in the lips with a single treatment.
WHAT MAKES JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® DIFFERENT THAN OTHER FILLERS?
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is a smooth hyaluronic acid based gel that is injected using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® also utilizes the patented VYCROSS® technology that blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid which contributes to the gel’s duration. In addition, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® has been customized with a lower hyaluronic acid concentration (15 mg/mL), while still providing the long-lasting results you can expect from the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers. Overall, this makes JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® a soft, smooth gel appropriate for adding subtle, natural volume to the lips and softening the appearance of lines around the mouth.

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT BEFORE TREATMENT?
Before any treatment, you will have an in-depth and comprehensive cosmetic consultation with one of our expertly trained, board-certified Dermatologists to best understand your individual needs and what facial features you would like to enhance. We will explain all the options to make sure that your JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatment totally satisfies your expectations.
WILL THE PROCEDURE HURT?
Your comfortability during the procedure is a top priority for us. Prior to the injections, we apply a topical numbing cream and ice the areas to help reduce the discomfort. In addition, the smooth consistency of the JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® allows us to inject it easily and smoothly. It also contains 0.3% Lidocaine to reduce injection pain for a more comfortable experience.
WILL THERE BE SWELLING AND BRUISING?
Following any filler injection, it should be expected that you will experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injected area. These effects should not last for more than a week. Remember, 12 hours after your procedure you can cover up any skin discoloration with makeup.
IS IT SAFE and EFFECTIVE?
The safety and effectiveness of JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® has been demonstrated in several clinical trials including the U.S. pivotal study where 168 subjects were treated with JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA®. A 5-point scale was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the product for lip fullness and a 4-point scale to evaluate the effectiveness of the product for smoothing lines around the mouth. Approximately two-thirds of subjects treated with JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® showed improvement in lip fullness and perioral lines through 1 year. The safety of JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® was observed to be similar to that of the control. The most common side effects were temporary responses at the treatment site such as swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness lumps/bumps, redness, pain, discoloration, and itching. Most of these side effects resolved within 30 days.
HOW DO I KNOW I CAN TRUST JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® TO IMPROVE MY SMILE?
