Volbella is a part of the Juvederm family of injectable gels. Just like the other injectables within the Juvederm family, Volbella is a hyaluronic acid-based gel made with Vycross technology. This specific filler is specifically made for lip augmentations and the correction of the fine lines surrounding the mouth.

What makes this filler so effective for the lips is its combination of short and long chain hyaluronic acid in its base. This crosslinking makes for a longer lasting filler that has the viscosity needed to produce the much needed greater lift to reshape and fill the lips. Patients and researchers both have noted a much smoother injection and feel making for a more natural looking lip augmentation.

History of Volbella

Volbella’s roots begin with the history of Juvederm itself. In the mid-90s Juvederm was first used as a medical treatment for joint pain and other conditions. However, over the next decade, its application for aesthetic use was further explored. In 2006 Juvederm was FDA approved for use as a dermal filler.

Since then, Allergan, the creator of Juvederm, has worked to make improvements on its Juvederm family of fillers to address a number of facial concerns. This led to Volbella which specifically addresses the lips and fine lines surrounding the mouth. Originally, Volbella was only available outside the U.S. However, in 2016, Volbella was FDA approved for the use of lip augmentation and perioral line correction. This fairly new filler has been noted for its results lasting for up to a year and has only grown in popularity as its application continues to be improved upon.

How much does Volbella cost?

Consult with your practitioner for financing and payment options. Oftentimes, there are special deals available to patients.

How many Volbella treatments will I need?

Depending on your starting point and goals, you can expect to need 1-2 treatments to achieve the results you desire. If it’s your first time using Volbella, it is recommended to schedule a follow-up 2-3 weeks afterward to verify you’re on track.

How long is the recovery time with Volbella?

Since the treatment is minimally invasive there is no recovery time needed for this procedure. However, some people may not react well to side effects. If you’re prone to bruising or swelling, you may need a day off to recover. Make sure to avoid direct sunlight, exercise, or high temperatures for a few days. Doing so allows for the gel to settle properly.

How quickly will I see results from Volbella?

Part of its popularity is how immediate the results are. However, it generally takes about 2 weeks to notice the full results. In addition, swelling or redness may obscure the appearance of your results for the first couple of days.

How long will my Volbella results last?

As a general rule, the results last up to a full year. Your individual response and metabolism may affect how long the results last for you. Many patients schedule routine maintenance treatments to ensure that the results don’t diminish.

Are there other similar options to Volbella?

There are numerous dermal fillers available. However, ones specifically made for the lips are fewer in number. The closest option would be Restylane Silk which also uses a hyaluronic based acid. Next, to the results themselves, the biggest pro for Volbella is that that hyaluronic acid is found within the body making it a more natural option compared to other dermal fillers.
