As you age, you might notice that your lips start to lose volume and small vertical lines form above the upper lip. In addition to making you look older, these changes can make you look angry or worried even when you are not. Fortunately, there are ways to address these changes around the mouth to restore a more youthful appearance.

At Spring Street Dermatology, we offer a variety of anti-aging cosmetic treatment options designed to target this delicate area of the face. Juvederm Volbella® is a hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler specifically formulated to improve the appearance of your lips.

Our board-certified dermatologists can help you turn back the clock with customized treatments that do not involve anesthesia or downtime afterward. Contact our medical spas in SOHO or Uptown to learn more.

What is Juvederm Volbella?

Approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2016, Juvederm Volbella is an HA dermal filler that is injected for subtle enhancement and correction. Hyaluronic acid is a natural product of the body that helps the skin retain moisture.

The synthetic form of HA in Juvederm fillers is very similar to the HA produced by the body, ensuring natural results when the procedure is performed by an experienced injector. 

Volbella is just one of the options in the Juvederm line of dermal filler. Other Juvederm products used at Spring Street Dermatology include: 

  • Voluma XC: Adds volume and definition to cheeks and jawline
  • Vollure XC: Reduces lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, such as smile lines and nasolabial folds
  • Ultra XC: Restores lip volume and reduces the appearance of some wrinkles

What does Juvederm Volbella treat?

Juvederm, as a lip filler, is mostly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. It is also used to create more definition in the lips. It is appropriate for patients who have noticed lost volume in the lips or those who have never had sufficient fullness and would like to add proportion to this feature.

Volbella is also a good choice for smoothing away perioral lines (fine vertical lines that appear above the upper lip and are also referred to as lipstick lines or smoker’s lines).

In addition, we use Juvederm Volbella as a tear trough treatment, adding subtle volume under the eyes to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. This area has traditionally been difficult to address, but with the addition of smooth HA fillers like Volbella, we have been able to achieve very nice results for our patients.

Who is a candidate for a Juvederm Volbella treatment?

The FDA has approved Volbella for use in patients over the age of 21 who want more lip fullness or treatment for fine lines around the mouth. Patients with perpetual dark circles under their eyes can also find refreshment with Volbella treatments. The procedure is appropriate for men and women and safe for all skin types and tones.

What to Expect During Your Volbella Treatment in New York

Your dermatologist will inject Volbella using a fine needle or microcannula. The filler formulation contains a small amount of lidocaine, a mild analgesic, to increase patient comfort during the procedure. We also offer methods like ice, topical numbing, and Pronox to ensure your experience is a comfortable, positive one.
