Who Can Receive Volbella® Treatments?

Volbella® is suitable for adults over the age of 21, who:

  • Would like to reduce wrinkles and subtly boost volume
  • Have no severe allergy that has resulted in anaphylaxis in the past
  • Have no allergy to lidocaine (a numbing agent used to make treatments more comfortable)
  • Have no allergy to proteins in Gram-positive bacteria

What is Volbella®, and What Can It Do?

Volbella® is an injectable soft tissue or dermal filler. It is a clear, smooth gel administered with a very fine needle into and around the mouth area. The treatment has a number of functions:

  • To fill out the puckered fine lines and wrinkles around the lips, which are often referred to as vertical lip lines or smoker's lines
  • To add a slight, natural-looking boost of volume to the lips themselves
  • To subtly reshape the lips

Like its fellow Juvederm® family members, Volbella® contains a specific mix of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that forms one of the building blocks of healthy, well-functioning skin. Hyaluronic acid help the skin retain moisture, as it can draw and hold in large amounts of water.

About Margaret MIGS Muldrow, MD, FAAD

Margaret "Migs" Muldrow, MD, FAAD spent her childhood in rural Ethiopia. As a young girl, she worked in a local village clinic, an experience that ultimately inspired her to become a physician. She graduated from Lewis and Clark College with a B.S. in Economic Development and International Affairs.

Juvederm® products utilize manufacturer Allergan's proprietary Vycross® technology, which works to vary the molecular weights of hyaluronic acid. This is what gives the product its smooth texture that the injector can gently massage for tailoring the appearance and feel of the filler on each patient. Since hyaluronic acid is something naturally produced in the body, there is a low risk of adverse reaction.

Volbella® treatment sessions each last about 15 to 30 minutes (depending on the area or areas being treated) and are conducted in the office. Most patients report that the injections feel virtually painless and result in a smoother, more contoured, appearance in and around the treated areas. The face appears younger, healthier, and rejuvenated.

The amount of product used depends on each patient's profile and the type and extent of effects they are looking for. The results achieved through Volbella® treatments can last up to a year, and patients have sometimes found that maintenance treatments require less and less product with each subsequent session.

There is little to no downtime expected after a Volbella® treatment session, and patients are usually able to resume their regular activities immediately, although they may be advised not to wear makeup for 12 hours post treatment, and to avoid direct sunlight, steam rooms, and saunas for up to two weeks.

What is Volbella®, and What Can It Do?

Denver Dermatology Center also offers Juvederm® XC and Voluma®, two more hyaluronic acid-based fillers from Allergan, each with a specific focus. Juvederm® XC smooths out nasolabial folds and other lines near the mouth, while Voluma® adds volume to the apple area of the cheeks.
