Volbella® in New Jersey

What Does Volbella® Do?

Volbella® volumizes, smooths, and shapes lips, as well as improves smokers’ lines around the mouth. It helps to define lips, smooth out fine lines that can develop around the mouth, and reduce the appearance of depressions that form where the upper and lower lips meet.

How Long Do Results Last?

We've seen about six months. Studies have shown that about 80 percent of the patients who receive Volbella® treatments report being happy with their results a year after their initial injections.

What Can Volbella® Do for You?

Volbella® can better define your lips, as well as give them an increased fullness. It also reduces the appearance of various wrinkles by smoothing vertical lip lines.

Do Volbella® Injections Hurt?

They might, a bit, as every patient has a unique comfort level. Allergan created Volbella® to maximize comfort during the treatment session. It's a very smooth gel for ease of injection, improved by the inclusion of a small amount of lidocaine to reduce sensation.

Is There Post-Treatment Swelling?

As with all injections, the process may result in a small amount of swelling and bruising that resolve in less than a week.

The Simple Way to Reduce Wrinkles and Get Fuller, Plumper Lips in New Jersey

Whether you're talking to another person or simply smiling for a photo, your mouth gets a lot of attention. Though the wrinkles that form around your lips are small, they can have a big impact on your appearance. That's why Allergan created a lip-specific injectable in its Juvederm® line: Volbella®. New Jersey's Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care offers the filler to patients seeking to smooth out lines around their mouth, technically known as perioral wrinkles.

Volbella® is also used to add subtle volume to lips that are naturally thin or have thinned over time. Think of the injectable as fine-tuning your smile, with an end result marked by smooth skin and soft lips, giving you a youthful look that can reflect how you feel.

How Does Volbella® Work?

Like other fillers in the Juvederm® family, Volbella® is based on a special formulation of hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule made by the body to handle a variety of jobs, including retain moisture. The manufacturing process used by Allergan links hyaluronic acid molecules to make a smooth gel that adds a subtle amount of volume where injected. Its consistency allows the Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care team to give patients a natural look that can last up to a year.

The injectable provides temporary results and will be safely absorbed into the body over time. Talk to your doctor during your consultation to explore the best way to get the cosmetic results you're seeking with Volbella® or a combination of treatments.

What Can I Expect During My Treatment?

Volbella® injections at our New Jersey office are administered in minutes, with care taken to minimize discomfort and maximize aesthetic results. As noted above, the dermal filler has a small amount of lidocaine in it, which reduces pain.

Because it has a relatively thin consistency, the correction it provides is subtle, soft, and smoothing. Afterward, any resulting bruising or swelling will resolve over the next several days.

Patients who want to keep their smooth lips and prevent perioral wrinkles from returning can schedule maintenance treatments, though Volbella® is reported to last up to a year.

What Options Are There Beyond Volbella®?

In addition to Volbella®, Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care offers JUVEDERM® to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and Voluma® to restore lost volume to the cheek area, creating rounder contours and providing a subtle lift for the mid and lower portions of the face.

Another injectable, BOTOX®, works to smooth out wrinkles not by adding volume, but by relaxing the facial muscles that cause visible lines to appear on the forehead and to the sides of the eyes.
