Juvederm Volbella FAQ

What makes Juvederm Volbella different from other Juvederm fillers?

Volbella is the first filler from Allergan, the makers of Botox, that is designed specifically for the lips. The smooth gel, developed with VYCROSS technology, gives it a more natural, softer feel when injected, making it perfect for the delicate lip area. Unlike Juvederm, results last up to one year.

Does Juvederm Volbella really provide natural-looking results?

Juvederm Volbella has been used in Canada and Europe with great success. Patients and providers are very satisfied with their results. reports that 70% of patients consider the treatment “worth it,” while a study concluded that 98% of patients who received this new lip filler treatment were satisfied with their results.

It’s important to note that an injectable filler is only as good as the provider administering it. Keep this in mind as you read reviews on the web for Juvederm Volbella. Many of our providers are certified Allergan trainers, which means that they aren’t just skilled at providing these treatments, they teach other physicians and nurses on proper injection techniques. At Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa, you’re in the best hands.

What should I expect during my consultation and prior to treatment?

During your consultation, our providers will collect your medical history and discuss your specific concerns and desired results. We will do a thorough examination to determine which treatment methods would suit your needs best and make sure Volbella is the right solution to provide you with the results you desire while also ensuring you’re a good candidate for treatment.

How is Juvederm Volbella administered?

Using an ultra-fine needle, our injection specialists and certified Allergan trainers will inject the hyaluronic acid gel into and around the lips to smooth lip and mouth lines and restore youthful fullness.

Is anesthesia used with Volbella?

Juvederm Volbella contains Lidocaine to ensure patient comfort throughout the duration of treatment. If you feel you require numbing prior to the initial injections, ice may be applied topically to gently numb the area. Topical anesthetic may also be used.

What should I expect after my Volbella treatment?

Every patient will receive specific aftercare instructions from their providers. However, in most situations, we recommend abstaining from certain activities, such as sun exposure, for a full 2 weeks following treatment. For seven days following treatment, patients should expect some temporary redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site, including some minor tenderness. We advise that patients avoid NSAID painkillers, as these can increase bruising and bleeding. After seven days, swelling should subside. During a follow-up appointment, we will then examine the results and ensure the treatment was effective. As every patient is different, individual results vary, with some patients requiring a follow-up treatment to improve results.

Who is a good candidate for Volbella treatments?

Patients over the age of 21 who are in relatively good health and wish to enhance or smooth their lip area are considered good candidates for this treatment. Volbella is considered safe for most patients, with some exceptions. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or other ingredients in the filler should not receive Volbella. During your consultation, it’s important to notify our providers if you have any allergies so we can determine if Volbella is safe for you. As with all injectables, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive dermal filler treatments.

Where can I find more Juvederm Volbella before and after photos?

As Juvederm Volbella has only recently received FDA approval, there aren’t many before and after photos or reviews from the United States. However, the official Juvederm website in the United Kingdom has before and after photos and reviews. Additionally, we can offer you a look at before and after photos in our office during your consultation.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
