Volbella is a dermal filler used to define lips and for the correction of fine wrinkles around the lips. This temporary filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid and does not require a skin test before your injections. The smaller Hylauronic Acid particle size in Volbella allows your cosmetic injector to treat fine lines without getting a full look in these delicate areas.
The most common side effects of Volbella are swelling, bruising, tenderness, redness, pain, and the possibility of discomfort and itching. These common side effects are temporary responses that can occur at the treatment site. When you call to book your appointment, please feel free to talk to us about how to avoid any bruising or swelling when having your injections.
Recovery with Volbella is minimal allowing you to return to your usual activities after the procedure. You may experience mild side effects such as redness, tenderness or swelling right after the procedure, but side effects should subside within a couple weeks. Within the first 24 hours after your treatment, it is best to not do extreme exercise and to limit sun exposure.
Is Volbella safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in your body making Volbella injections safe for adults age 21 and older. Volbella restores some of the lost hyaluronic acid due to aging in order to softly add volume back into the lips and surrounding skin.
