Volbella restores smooth skin around the lips.
Perioral lines have caused significant problems for cosmetic surgeons over the years. These are the fine lines that form around your mouth as you age. Any facial expression has the ability to magnify these lines. In the past, invasive surgery was needed to correct these lines.
Now, the FDA has approved a minimally invasive substance that can be injected into the mouth area to solve this problem. This substance is called Volbella.
What is Volbella Maade Of?
Volbella is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your body. It is known to be hydrating and has sometimes been called the fountain of youth. Receiving injections of Volbella will infuse moisture back into your mouth area, making your lips look more plump and hydrated than before. You will not need a skin test before the injection, as the FDA has determined that this is a safe substance to inject into your body.
How Long Will This Treatment Last?
The hyaluronic acid in volbella helps your lips to retain moisture. They will look and feel noticeably softer. Most patients that receive volbella will not need any further treatments for at least a year. Some cosmetic doctors may offer a touch-up service within a month after the initial treatment to ensure a good result. After that, your new lips should last for a year. If you desire to repeat the treatment, you can certainly have it done more than once.
Will Your Lips Look Too Puffy?
Sometimes the current trends dictate cosmetic surgeons to make lips look more puffy and full than is natural. If this is not your desire, volbella may be the answer. The size of the particles in this filler is so small that it can be used quite precisely to erase those fine lines and wrinkles from around the mouth, without making the lips look unnaturally large. Make sure your surgeon understands the look you are hoping for before he or she begins work.
What Are the Risks of Volbella?
There are some temporary side effects that can happen after an injection of volbella. There are no known long term effects to this treatment. Side effects include bruising, swelling, itching, pain, redness and tenderness. If you are concerned about these side effects, definitely discuss them with your doctor beforehand. There are things you can do to minimize the risks of these side effects happening. Volbella has a small amount of lidocaine in it, so this minimizes the occurrence of initial pain. If you are allergic to lidocaine or similar medications, however, make sure you let your doctor know that.
If you are concerned about the appearance of fine lines on your lips or around your mouth, speak to your doctor. Volbella has been FDA approved for this purpose and can greatly reduce the fine lines in your mouth area. It is a minimally invasive approach to lip augmentation that carries very little risk.
