Cosmetic trends come and go, but full, luscious lips are always in style. Lip augmentation is a common cosmetic procedure, and there are several different types available depending on your goals. Juvederm Volbella® lip filler offers patients fuller-looking lips, and unlike other lip treatments, Volbella lasts up to a year.
Dr. Thomas Theocharides with Beginnings Aesthetics & Wellness in Long Branch, NJ offers Volbella lip treatment, helping clients achieve their cosmetic goals.
How Does Volbella Lip Treatment Work?
Volbella filler is hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that is injected directly into the lips with a small syringe to instantly and subtly volumize the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar found in the skin, and it actually works to trap water cells in the lips, which provides a more natural look. This is why Volbella lasts longer than traditional collagen fillers.
What Makes Volbella Different?
Other lip fillers are made of collagen, which does not last as long in the lips as Volbella, which is a hyaluronic acid gel. This makes it effective at smoothing vertical lip lines or even deep acne scars.
You are also less likely to have “duck lips” with Volbella, which is a result of over-filling the lips. Dr. Theocarides has many years of experience with many types of dermal fillers, and he uses his experience and good judgment to artfully enhance your appearance.
What To Expect During Treatment
Volbella lip treatment is a clear gel that is injected directly into the lips and is formulated with lidocaine to reduce discomfort during treatment. We can also provide you topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes, and you will be able to return to normal activities soon afterwards. Be sure to follow Dr. Theocarides’ post-treatment instructions to preserve your results.
