A member of the JUVÉDERM family of products, Volbella is an FDA-approved injection used to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of "smoker's lines" around the mouth, due to it’s thinner consistency. It may also be used to fill pitted acne scarring in the face.
Volbella is formulated with Vycross, a propriety filler technology from Allergan that blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. The versatile filler is proven to last for one year—significantly longer than other products currently available.
Volbella can be used to enhance the lip shape and to replace volume loss without looking done or fake. Volbella is injected into the lips, the border of the lips or into the lip lines with a tiny needle and is ideal for patients who want a very natural, smooth, hydrated lip with a soft, youthful look. Additionally, Volbella has been used for treating tear-trough/under eye grooves, fine lines in the crow’s feet areas, neck lines, and earlobe rejuvenation.
One notable benefit is that Volbella has a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA) so it pulls less water to itself, resulting in less swelling and bruising after the injection.
