Have you ever dreamt of having pillow-like lips, but maybe feared that you would end up looking like a big mouth bass? This may have been a fear of past treatments, but there have been significant advancements in the last few years that will ease your worries. A new product called the Volbella procedure is a new treatment that promises fuller looking lips that last longer and provide greater lift capacity.
What is Volbella?
Volbella is a new lip filler that was developed by Juvederm, the company that produces Botox. This filler is a hyaluronic acid-based gel enhanced with lidocaine to fill the lips and provide long lasting results. Volbella is a softer, smoother gel that allows for easier injection than traditional fillers. The lower HA concentration of Volbella means that it is less hydrophilic (less likely to absorb water) resulting in reduced swelling and a more natural result.
Benefits of Volbella Versus Other Products
Volbella’s formula allows for an overall better product than other lip fillers. Juvederm describes Volbella as having a nice silky sheen finish to the lips, which is a feature that has not been seen before in other fillers available on the market. Due to the formula making Volbella smoother than other treatments, patients describe Volbella as being relatively pain-free. There is a slight pinch at the injection site, but then the filler injects incredibly smooth with no bruising.
Results of Volbella
What makes Volbella unique is the patented Vycross technology. This new feature uses more efficient crosslinking to produce a greater lift capacity and longer lasting results than other fillers on the market. Juvederm also led a study that found over 90% of test patients reported natural looking lips, with more than 80% of them still satisfied with their results after one year of treatment. This is an extremely high satisfactory rate at an extremely long time after the initial procedure. Previous lip fillers that our office has used only lasted about 6 months before they were broken down naturally by your body. This causes the patient to have more of a deflated pout instead of full lips. Volbella provides superior lift and longer lasting results than ever experience before.
