Volbella in Houston

If you are unhappy with your naturally thin lips, you may be considering a dermal filler treatment to give you more volume. However, some dermal fillers may give you lips that appear puffy and disproportionate to your other facial features. Fortunately, you could avoid this by getting a professional plastic surgeon to administer Volbella in Houston.

Volbella is one of the newest dermal fillers from Juvederm and is a great option for natural-looking, full lips. Contact us today to learn more about whether this treatment is right for you.

What is Volbella?

Volbella is an FDA-approved dermal filler designed to give you full lips that look natural. The filler is an injectable, non-surgical lip augmentation treatment option. Dr. Layton and his nurse injectors use a fine syringe to inject Volbella via several injection points on and around the lips.

Unlike generic procedures, Volbella does not make your lips look puffy or swollen because it uses synthetic hyaluronic acid and patented Vycross technology. However, filler causes swelling for the first few days, so your lips may appear puffy immediately following procedure.

As you grow older, your body creates less hyaluronic acid, which functions as a lubricant and cushion for tissues such as the lips. An insufficient amount of hyaluronic acid and other factors such as aging, sun damage, and smoking might also leave your lips feeling thin. Volbella supplements your lips’ natural hyaluronic acid using a near-perfect synthetic replica.

Benefits of Volbella

Besides full, voluptuous, and beautiful lips, getting Volbella injections could also:

Erase Perioral Lines

Most dermal fillers are limited to the lips, but Volbella uses hyaluronic acid, made of fine particles that Dr. Layton can inject into your perioral lines to reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines.

Be Painless

Volbella contains trace amounts of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you do not experience profound pain.

Save You Time

It only takes around 30 minutes for your plastic surgeon to inject Volbella into your lips so that you can have the procedure during your lunch break. However, there are several restrictions you should be aware of after receiving a Volbella treatment, including refraining from exercising or drinking through a straw for 48 hours.

Last Longer than Other Treatments

Volbella could last considerably longer than other dermal fillers. For example, one procedure could keep your lips full for up to 12 months. However, everyone’s results vary. Because your body slowly metabolizes the synthetic hyaluronic acid in your Volbella injections, you may need follow-up injections to keep your lips looking full.

Potential Side Effects of Volbella

Volbella is safer than other dermal fillers because it uses synthetic properties designed to mimic the effects of natural chemicals in your body. In addition, synthetic properties reduce the likelihood of developing an allergic reaction to the injections, meaning you do not need a skin test before receiving Volbella.

During treatment, you might experience a few mild side effects, including pain, bruising, tenderness, and redness. Fortunately, these symptoms are temporary. Our team can offer pain relievers to help ease any discomfort.

Recovering from Volbella Injections

You might not experience any downtime after getting Volbella injections, so you can go about your daily routine as usual. However, recovering from the injections may take more than 24 hours, and avoiding doing anything that might compromise the healing process is important, including the restrictions mentioned above.

Dr. Layton may advise you to avoid exposure to direct sunlight and excess heat. You should also avoid strenuous activities that raise your blood pressure.
