Juvéderm Volbella was developed specifically for the lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected by your physician, 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 12 months.
WHAT MAKES JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA UNIQUE
Volbella uses Vycross technology, improving the hyaluronic acid cross-linking of the gel to be injected. The uniqueness of the technological improvement results in less water absorption, and therefore less swelling than previous fillers. More natural and longer-lasting results are the effects of this new process.
WHAT EXACTLY IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in one or two days so is constantly replaced-as we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturizing and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease. Hyaluronic acid is used for aesthetic treatments, and has been used by doctors for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as eye surgery.
WILL THE PROCEDURE HURT?
The smooth consistency of the Juvéderm® Volbella allows your medical practitioner to administer it easily and smoothly. It also contains 0.3% lidocaine to reduce injection pain for a more comfortable experience.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Following injection, you may experience slight redness, swelling or bruising at the injected area. Your medical practitioner must advise on this. Please be assured that these side effects should not last and, after waiting 12 hours following treatment, can be easily covered up with your usual makeup. However, do not hesitate to get in touch with your medical practitioner in the unlikely event that these reactions last longer than a week or if you experience other side effects. All skin injection procedures carry a small risk of infection.
