Volbella Plumps and Reshapes Naturally Thin and Aging Lips

Volbella in NYC is a minimally-invasive way to combat the signs of aging and increase the definition around the lips. A natural decline in collagen causes your lips to thin and sag. Volbella is a part of the Juvéderm family of products and has been specially designed to treat:

  • Perioral lines
  • Fine lines on the upper and lower mouth
  • Fine lines around the edges of the mouth

While years ago lines around the mouth were difficult to treat, today Dr. Hellman is able to treat this delicate area with great precision and ease thanks to Volbella’s advanced formula. Some of the additional benefits of using Volbella include:

  • Instantly volumizes thin lips
  • Smooths fines lines
  • Produces immediate, natural-looking results

How Does Volbella Work?

Volbella uses Vycross technology, a proprietary molecular cross-linking formula from Allergen. Volbella is a soft gel that can be easily introduced into the skin. Made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that helps the skin retain more moisture, this dermal filler hydrates the tissue. When injected by an expert, Volbella can make a dramatic, but subtle change without making patients’ lips look over-inflated or unnatural.

What Happens During an NYC Volbella Treatment?

Volbella is a non-surgical procedure that can be performed in about 30 minutes. During your treatment at her Manhattan office, Dr. Hellman will inject a small amount of gel into the lip area. Dr. Hellman’s NYC Volbella treatment also contains a local anesthetic, Lidocaine, which helps reduce discomfort during the procedure.

After the procedure, you can return to your regular routine and commitments. It is normal to experience some temporary swelling, mild bruising and redness of the lips and area surrounding the mouth. The lips may also be tender to the touch.

To help minimize irritation and ensure the filler properly settles, do not rub or massage your lips or expose them to the sun for at least 24 hours after treatment. Dr. Hellman recommends avoiding strenuous activity, such as a vigorous workout, for about a day after treatment. Within a couple of weeks, any side effects should subside and your final results will be visible.

What Results Can I Expect from My Volbella Treatment?

After an NYC Volbella treatment with Dr. Hellman, your lips will be instantly fuller and fine lines will be less prominent. Most patients can look forward to visible, natural-looking results for about a year. Individual results will vary, depending on the patient’s skin.

How long does Volbella last?

The longevity of Volbella treatments will depend on various factors. In most cases, the results achieved with this injectable treatment performed by Dr. Hellman can last up to a year. Patients who choose to get a touch-up may see longer-lasting effects, but make sure you work with a board-certified dermatologist to get the best results.

Is Volbella better than Juvederm?

Volbella and Juvederm have different qualities, so they are better suited for different parts of the body. While both may be used in different areas, Volbella is usually applied to the lips. Juvederm, on the other hand, is usually used to smoothen out wrinkles in the corners of the mouth.

Does Volbella work right away?

Volbella produces instant results, although it may take up to two weeks to see the final outcome. Additionally, you may experience swelling and mild discomfort after the procedure, but this usually recedes one to two days after the treatment is performed.

Where is Volbella injected?

Volbella was designed to restore fullness and volume in the lips. It contains hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin, which helps restore volume and give your lips a youthful appearance.

Which lip filler is the best one?

There are many different lip fillers to choose from. As a result, the ideal treatment option will depend on a variety of factors, including your specific goals and the dermatologists’ expertise. In order to find the best alternative, you should consult with a board-certified dermatologist in your area.
