Volbella for lipsI am pleased to announce I have another dermal filler injectable in the arsenal against wrinkles—Volbella for lips! This new FDA-cleared injectable filler from Allergan is based on Hyaluronic acid (HA) that provides improvement in the lip contour, subtly boosting volume and smoothing vertical creases.

It is a smooth gel that has been specifically developed 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 may last up to a year.

What VOLBELLA® lip injections can do for you:

  • Diminish vertical lip lines
  • Plump up your lips to make them subtly fuller
  • Accentuate the border of your lips

Volbella Frequently Asked Questions

As a new product, patients are curious and have many questions about if it’s the right injectable for them. Here are a few of the questions I hear most often:

What areas are best treated with Volbella?

VOLBELLA® lip injections treat lost lip volume, defines lip contours, treats the corners of the mouth that turn down and make you look like you’re sad, smooths lines and plumps up marionette lines (the lines that go from the corners of your mouth down to your chin).

In addition to lips, Volbella® can be used anywhere for subtle augmentation and smoothing fine lines.

Why should I choose Volbella over a different filler?

Volbella increases lip fullness and softens fine lines around the mouth. It is for subtle enhancements for patients who want smooth results that are not drastic changes.

Does Volbella have side effects?

Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. It is also recommended that you avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.

How long will Volbella last?

Accordingly to Allergan’s research, this soft gel is lasting up to one year in the lips.
