Have you found yourself frustrated by the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines where there used to be beautiful, smooth skin? Many of us begin to notice lines and wrinkles creeping in as we age, replacing the smooth skin we used to have, and it’s not at all uncommon to wish you could simply turn back the clock to a time before those bothersome signs of aging began making themselves known.

While there are a variety of cosmetic surgeries that can help establish a younger-looking appearance, not everyone is interested in the full facelift experience. This is exactly why Dr. James Anthony is proud to offer Volbella by Juvéderm®, a non-surgical dermal filler designed to restore your youthful glow without the need for invasive surgery or a lengthy recovery time.

Volbella is a lip augmentation treatment that works by injecting a formula of hyaluronic acid into the lips and around the mouth, which acts to boost the skin’s ability to retain moisture while also invigorating the connective tissue that gives your skin its natural volume and healthy, glowing appearance. The results are fuller lips and the elimination of lines and wrinkles around the mouth, thanks to skin that more effectively retains moisture and softness for a more naturally voluminous appearance that walks back some of the most tough-to-treat lines and wrinkles.

The Volbella Treatment

The Volbella formula contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that actually makes the injection process relatively painless, with most patients reporting that it’s even easier to deal with than they had anticipated. We can also provide extra numbing cream if you prefer. The procedure itself is completely safe and minimally invasive, using small needles for a more comfortable injection process around the mouth and lips, according to your individual goals and treatment plan.

What to Expect with Volbella

Before your procedure, Dr. Anthony will walk you through everything you need to know and everything you can expect about your Volbella treatment. He’ll listen to any concerns you might have and will explain everything you need to know about Volbella, walking you through all the details.

After your treatment, it’s fairly common to experience such mild side effects as bruising, swelling, tenderness, redness, and minimal pain. These side effects tend to be slight, and will subside within a week or so. You may experience some tenderness in the treatment area, which will also fade quickly.

You’ll be able to return to your normal everyday activities immediately after the procedure, but it’s advised that you avoid any kind of strenuous exercise and avoid direct sun exposure for the first 24 hours after your treatment.

FAQ

How Much Does Volbella Cost?

The exact cost of your Volbella treatment will depend on some important factors, including the size of the treatment area and whether or not you intend to combine it with any other treatments. During your consultation with Dr. Anthony, he’ll walk you through all the possible options that might bring you in line with your personal goals before developing your personalized treatment plan, which will then enable us to provide you with an exact cost breakdown.

Will My Treatment Leave Scars?

One of the best things about Volbella is that it doesn’t leave any scars. This non-surgical procedure might leave behind some temporary redness and swelling, but does not produce scars of any kind.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The results of Volbella tend to last for about 6 to 12 months, which is longer than most dermal fillers. Some patients have even reported enjoying their results for a full 18 months. You can also come back for a repeat treatment to maintain your results at any time.
