JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is a popular dermal filler that is used to enhance the appearance of the lips and improve hollowness around the eye area. This filler is part of the JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers, which are designed to provide natural-looking results that can last for up to a year.
One of the key benefits of JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is that it is specifically formulated to provide subtle, natural-looking results. This is achieved through the use of VYCROSS® technology, which combines different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to create a smooth, cohesive gel that can be easily injected into the lips.
The hyaluronic acid in JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the body. It helps to hydrate and plump the skin, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When injected into the lips, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA can add volume and definition, while also smoothing out any fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth. When injection in the periorbital area, it can improve hollowness around the eye area
Another benefit of JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is that it is a long-lasting filler. While the exact duration of the results will vary depending on the individual, most patients can expect their results to last for up to a year. This means that they can enjoy fuller, more youthful-looking lips for an extended period of time without the need for frequent touch-ups.
Like all dermal fillers, JUVEDERM VOLBELLA does come with some potential side effects and risks. These can include swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. However, these side effects are typically mild and will resolve on their own within a few days.
JUVEDERM VOLBELLA is an excellent option for anyone who is looking to enhance the appearance of their lips or improve hollowness around the eye area. With its natural-looking results and long-lasting effects, it is a popular choice among both patients and practitioners alike. If you are unsure whether JUVEDERM VOLBELLA can help your problem, you should contact our doctor for consultation first.

The most common side effects of JUVEDERM products are temporary reactions at the injection site, such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. These side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Unintentional injection into a blood vessel is a rare but serious risk, which can result in vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
