Volbella® in Tucson, AZ
Get the Lips You've Always Wanted With a Quick, Noninvasive Filler
Focusing on lines around the mouth and achieving fuller lips.
Many women and men are familiar with the benefits of JUVÉDERM® as a filler, but one of the newest products in the line focuses on a very specific part of the face: the lips and mouth. Volbella® helps Tucson patients interested in reducing lines around the mouth and generating fullness of the lips, creating an overall appearance of youth.
Results from treatment last up to one year, making it one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers. Given that Volbella® received FDA approval as an effective lip augmentation product in mid-2016, this treatment is a contemporary option available for women and men interested in achieving shapely lips.
Am I a Good Candidate for Volbella® in Tucson?
Women and men over the age of 21 who are interested in obtaining fuller lips and smoothing out lines around the mouth can schedule a consultation to determine whether Volbella® is the ideal treatment for them. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to lidocaine are not good candidates but can still schedule a consultation to discuss alternative treatments. During the consultation, a dermatologist will discuss your medical history and help develop the ideal treatment plan to address your unique concerns and goals.
What Can I Expect During a Volbella® Treatment in Tucson, AZ?
A typical session lasts less than an hour and begins with an examination of the treatment area to ensure that Volbella® is, in fact, the best course of treatment.
Our licensed injector utilizes a very fine needle to inject the gel into the areas being treated, which usually includes the skin around the lips. Volbella® contains lidocaine, which is a numbing agent that helps minimize any patient discomfort during the procedure. Patients with sensitive skin may also request a topical anesthetic prior to treatment for added comfort. The exact number of injections required during a single session depends on the patient's specific needs, but the licensed injector will explain each step of the process prior to treatment, ensuring that the patient understands the process and is comfortable. The positive results are immediate, allowing patients to enjoy fuller lips and fewer wrinkles immediately following the appointment.
Following treatment, patients can immediately resume normal activity. Our licensed injector will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including avoiding direct sun exposure, as well as certain painkillers that can increase the likelihood of bruising and bleeding. Side effects are extremely mild and include bruising and redness at the injection site for upward of one week following treatment.
