Gently restore your lips to their original volume and definition with Volbella®!

Gently restore your lips to their original volume and definition with Volbella®!

As we age, our lips and the surrounding area tends to lose the supple and defined structure that was once there. Volbella® is a revolutionary new filler that is able to subtly renew your lips to a natural-looking and more defined appearance. Volbella® has been developed specifically for use in the lip area and can be used to soften perioral rhytides, commonly known as “smoker’s lines”.
Volbella®’s patented Vycross® technology provides an increased lifting capacity, longer duration of effects, and causes less post-procedure swelling when compared to other common lip fillers. The innovative technology combines different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid (HA) together, aiding in its ability to produce a smoother, natural feeling, and longer lasting filler.

Volbella® can show results up to or greater than one year, whereas many other lip and perioral fillers typically do not show effects up to this time frame. Recent studies have revealed that over 90% of patients treated with Volbella® reported a natural looking lip appearance. Over 80% of those studied were still pleased with their results after one year.

Common Questions:
Will the procedure hurt?
Although the lips are a delicate area to inject, the great news is that similar to most other HA fillers, Volbella® comes premixed with Lidocaine, a numbing medication. This makes the injection experience far more comfortable. Prior to injection, the area will also be numbed topically in order to further decrease potential discomfort.

What is Volbella® made of?
Volbella®, similar to other common fillers on the market, is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the skin that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This mechanism of action is the reason why it is so effective at plumping and re-hydrating the skin and lips.
