Volbella™ is an exciting new hyaluronic acid filler that was just approved by the FDA for restoring volume in the lips and softening fine lines around the mouth. Volbella® has been widely used in Europe, Canada and other countries for several years. We are excited to be one of the first practices in Orange County to offer the product to our patients. Volbella™ is made by Allergan, the same company that makes Botox®, Juvederm® and Voluma®.
Volbella™ is unique in that it has a much softer consistency than other fillers, giving the lips a very natural “lip-like” feel. It also has a lower affinity for water than other hyaluronic acid fillers, so there is less swelling following the treatment. Due to a special technology called “Vycross” there is also much more cross linking of the molecules of Volbella™, which translates into a longer lasting product, up to one year.
Treatment with Volbella™ is easy! We will assess your areas of concern, answer all of your questions and apply a topical anesthetic prior to injection. Volbella™ already comes pre-mixed with lidocaine to help ease any discomfort during the treatment process. Our experienced staff will apply ice immediately after treatment and you are free to resume your regular daily activities the following days.
While Volbella™ has received FDA approval for lips and lines around the mouth, there are many other exciting potential areas where Volbella™ can be used, such as softening the fine lines on the cheeks, around the eyes, and in the “tear troughs,” or hollows under the eyes.
