Volbella for a Natural Looking Lip Augmentation

Volbella launched in the last quarter of 2016, but it is still not as well-known as its predecessors, Juvederm and Voluma. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid product, similar to its family members of Juvederm and Voluma, but it has a completely different cross-linkage that allows for decreased viscosity but excellent longevity—around 18 months. Volbella was created as an option for filling very superficial fine lines as opposed to deeper or more coarse wrinkles or folds. I like Volbella best for the patient who is starting to see a decline in their lip volume, which is a normal part of the aging face, but which makes the patient start to have thin lip as opposed to a normal one.

If patients do not want the appearance of “filled lips”, but rather a softer and more subtle definition of the lip, Volbella is the product I recommend. Some patients choose both definition and plumping of the lips, and in these patients, I prefer to use a combination of both Volbella and its predecessor, Juvederm. The longevity of these products is typically one year from time of injection. If patients are hesitant on the quantity, a syringe of Volbella is equivalent to a teaspoon from a measurement standpoint. I will encourage many patients to try 1-2 syringes […]
