Volbella is a Juvéderm injectable that is specifically formulated for non-surgical lip augmentation and correction of vertical lines around the mouth. This injectable uses hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found in the skin that retains moisture and can be gradually and safely absorbed into the body over time. Volbella can be a great option for patients looking to plump thin or aging lips without the need for invasive surgery.
Dr. Shaddix is simply the best there is. After explaining my various options, we settled on something that was both cost-efficient and minimally invasive. After the procedure, he continued to make himself available however he could to ensure a speedy and healthy recovery. His office staff is accommodating and professional, while Dr. Shaddix himself is capable, competent and kind.”Read Patient Reviews
There are many injectable options available on the market, and the best way to determine which one is best for you is through a consultation with Dr. Shaddix. After you describe what you will like to change about your face and what results you would like to achieve, he can recommend an effective treatment plan that can also include other skin or surgical treatments. Your consultation is also the best time to ask any questions you may have about Volbella, and Dr. Shaddix will ensure you know what to expect from your treatment and afterward.
Injectable treatments can be uncomfortable for some patients, so Dr. Shaddix takes every step to ensure you’re relaxed and comfortable. This begins with a topical anesthetic at the treatment site, which is paired with the lidocaine inside the Volbella gel. This smooth gel is then carefully injected under the skin at precise locations to sculpt a result that is natural and flattering to your profile. This can require multiple, small injections to get the best result, and may require multiple vials of product. Dr. Shaddix can give you the best idea of how much will be required during your consultation. Overall, an injectable treatment takes from fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on what results are intended.
Volbella and other injectable treatments don’t require any downtime afterward, meaning you can return to your regular activities immediately. There may be some bruising or swelling at the treatment site, but you can manage this with an ice pack if it becomes uncomfortable. Dr. Shaddix recommends that you massage the treatment area afterward to distribute the product evenly around the treatment site. Volbella can last up to one year, after which you can return for another treatment.
