Some people notice that their lips thin over time and want to regain a fuller appearance or have noticed lines forming around the lips. Volbella can help fill lips and bring back a youthful volume. This treatment can also be used to fill in areas around the tear troughs and reduce under-eye bags and shadows. The effects of Volbella last anywhere from 9 months to 1 year and require no maintenance.
- Topical creams or local anesthesia are used to numb the skin near the injection site.
- Microneedles are used to gently inject the filler directly beneath the surface of your skin.
Results are typically seen immediately, and you can return to your regular activities the next day.
The first step is to ensure the areas of the injection sites will be marked and cleaned. After each injection, light pressure and a cold pad are applied to the area to reduce any discomfort. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, other than feeling a slight tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects.
What to Expect
The majority of patients receiving Volbella will notice fast-acting, visible results and improvements after their very first treatment.
