Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm® range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected by Dr. Terrasse 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 year.
A study showed that 98% of people who had Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine reported that their lip appearance goals had been achieved; with results lasting up to 12 months. Typical testimonials to Volbella’s effects include patients stating that their lips look “beautiful again,” “lovely,” and “delicate fullness done just right.”
Following a Volbella Lip Injection, clients find they are able to return to their regular activities. Most will experience the height of swelling for 1 to 2 days. Following that, slight swelling may remain but is usually gone within 7 to 10 days. Tiny bruises may occur around the treatment site, but these are barely noticeable or are easily covered with makeup. A recommendation we make to all our clients in order to reduce bruising is to avoid blood-thinning products (i.e. aspirin, ginseng, fish oil, anti-inflammatory medications, and vitamin E) for 1 week before your Volbella Lip Augmentation. Clients with a history of cold sores are put on a short regimen of anti-viral medication.
