About Juvéderm Volbella

Juvéderm Volbella is designed with a very thin gel, making it a particularly excellent option for superficial lines, the delicate under-eye area, and very natural looking and feeling lip augmentation. It’s also great for softening “smoker’s lines” at the mouth for an overall rejuvenated appearance of the area. Cosmetic injectables are one of Dr. Halaas’s main services, and she is very happy to offer Volbella.

The science of Volbella

Volbella is made with Vycross™ technology, which is how it is able to achieve such a smooth, natural-looking appearance. Whereas some dermal fillers have a more granular consistency, Volbella’s Vycross technology uses a combination of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, giving it an advanced cross-linked gel. The Vycross technology also means less swelling during recovery. In addition, Volbella contains hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule that we all have naturally within our body.

 Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding substance that helps to keep the skin plump, strong, firm, and hydrated — basically, young-looking. However, with age, our natural hyaluronic acid subsides, which is why we start to develop wrinkled. As a cosmetic injectable that is made with hyaluronic acid, Volbella has the ability to restore that plump, firmer skin because when injected, it binds itself to the water molecules in the skin, providing youthful volume and lift.

Treatment, downtime, and results

Volbella treatments are quick, convenient, and downtime-free. The product is administered using a fine needle, and contains lidocaine to numb the area. Most patients return to their regular activities directly after their appointment, although there may be some mild swelling for a day or two. Early results become visible in 3-4 days, and can last up to 18 months.

I was referred by a friend who got her lips done and the result looked amazing and so natural. The before and after pictures are extremely impressive. My overall experience with the office has been so welcoming, from the first phone call.
