Juvéderm Volbella® XC Reviews
The Volbella treatment session usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes and is dependent on how many injections are required for the desired result. Every treatment is personalized for each patient. To limit discomfort, a topical numbing cream can be added to the injection site. After the treatment, you should limit strenuos exercise, sun exposure and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.
What to Expect
During your consultation, you and your physician will determine if Volbella is right for you. You may not be a good candidate for treatment if you have severe allergies or are taking blood thinners or medications to prolong bleeding as the Volbella treatment may cause an increase in bruising at the site of injection.
Is There an Age restriction?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Volbella for lip augmentation and to smooth the wrinkles around the mouth for men and women over the age of 21.
Possible Side effects?
As with any medication, there is always a risk of side effects. Volbella may produce discoloration of the lips and skin, pain, swelling, itching, redness, tenderness, lumpy lips, bumpy skin around the mouth and site of injection, and firmness under the skin. These side effects should be mild, and last no more than 30 days. If you experience any side effects, please call our office to report the condition.
Do the injections hurt?
Volbella patients report feeling no more than a pinch during the actual treatment. Lidocaine is mixed into the Volbella which minimizes discomfort during the treatment.
