Wrinkles on the upper lip and flat, lackluster lips are incredibly hard to treat. Since the advent of dermal fillers, patients have been seeking ways to treat perioral rhytids-also known as smoker’s lines-and flattened lips in a way that looked soft and natural. Smoker’s lines are signs of aging that are borne out of repeated facial movements, but flattened lips can also make someone look much older than they really are. Because of its ability to combat signs of aging and make your lips look more alluring, Juvederm Volbella is quickly emerging as one of the most optimal dermal fillers for treating smoker’s lines and lip enhancement. Volbella can give you the precise and refined outcomes that are perfect for delicate areas like the upper lips and the lips. With a simple treatment, you can acheive natural-looking results that last for up to a year.

How Juvederm® Volbella Works
While this is another hyaluronic acid filler from the Juvederm® line, its unique properties make it an optimal treatment for delicate areas like the upper lip and the lips. Formulated using patented Vycross technology, Juvederm Volbella is a blend of particles of different weights, and it has a uniquely lower concentration of Hyaluronic Acid. This gel was designed to be smooth and soft without being quickly absorbed by the body so that patients can enjoy long-lasting, natural results.

Your Volbella Treatment
Your experience is incredibly simple and quick. First, your aesthetic physician will analyze your facial features to determine the perfect placement of the injections.
Because Juvederm® Volbella uses such a fine needle, many patients report the procedure as relatively painless. There’s also lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in the formula to help with any discomfort. After your treatment, patients will be able to return to work or their daily activities with no downtime or recovery required. Patients do experience some small side effects, like swelling, soreness, and bruising. Fortunately, patients can expect side effects on the face to dissipate after a week and side effects on the lips to disappear after two weeks.
What’s Unique Between Volbella and Other Juvederm® Fillers?
Like other hyaluronic acid fillers, Volbella is a no downtime injectable that can nourish the skin, volumize the skin, and enhance the lips. Each dermal filler offered by Aesthetic Art have unique properties that make them optimal for treating different conditions and target areas, which is why it’s essential that you discuss your aesthetic goals with an aesthetic physician.
