What is Volbella® used for?
Volbella® is an injectable treatment used for lip augmentation that is formulated with lidocaine, a mild numbing agent, to diminish any potential discomfort. Volbella® enhances lip volume and contour, defining the cupid’s bow or top center of the lips, while also diminishing vertical ‘smoker’s lines’ around the outline of the lips, and reducing the appearance lines and wrinkles in the area of the chin.
How does Volbella® compare to other lip augmentation treatments?
The smooth consistency of Volbella® lip injections produce a smoother, softer texture in the lips that produces more natural-looking results. Volbella® treatments also offer longer-lasting results when compared to other lip augmentation treatments.
How does Volbella® work?
Volbella® is formulated with lidocaine, an effective anesthetic agent, diminishing any discomfort during the procedure. Volbella® is made with Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, designed to reduce swelling. Vycross technology produces an ultra-smooth gel solution that imparts a totally natural look and feel to the lips. The Hyaluronic acid in the Volbella® gel formula also produces continued improvements in the skin because it naturally assists with the skin cells’ retention of moisture. Results of Volbella® injections typically last about a year.
Can Volbella® be used in combination with other treatments?
Many patients choose to combine Volbella® with other treatments, such as laser treatments that stimulate collagen production, to further enhance the lips and mouth. This combination is particularly suited for patients who want to eliminate deeply etched lines such as those around the lips or in the chin area. Volbella® may also be combined with other treatments to address concerns in other areas of the face.
Recovery after Volbella®
Volbella® produces minimal swelling and bruising, and most patients resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. If you do experience any swelling or redness, an ice pack may be used to alleviate those symptoms, which naturally subside within a day or so.
How much does Volbella® cost in Connecticut?
The number of injections used in your treatment will affect the cost of treatment, which varies with every patient.
