Hide Early Signs Of Aging

Lips and the area surrounding them often show the first signs of aging. The mouth thins, and perioral rhytids, also called perioral lines or smoker’s lines, develop. Volbella, a dermal filler recently approved by the FDA, works wonders where other fillers provide less-than-ideal results. To enhance volume and minimize fine lines on your lips and the area surrounding them, Zenn Plastic Surgery aesthetic injector specialist Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS, loves using Volbella.

What Is Juvéderm Volbella?

Volbella is a dermal filler consisting of small hyaluronic acid (HA) particles to treat fine lines and thinning lips. Volbella works well in defining and plumping the face for a youthful appearance without looking artificial. Results are subtle, not puffy or bulky. With Volbella, it is easier to maintain aesthetically pleasing proportions in the facial structure.

Juvéderm is a line of injectable fillers containing HA created by Allergan (maker of BOTOX®), and it sets the high bar for the filler industry. This family of products includes the original formula as well as Juvéderm Plus, Voluma, and Volbella. You can achieve your ideal facial results with one or more of these products, according to the recommendations of Zenn Plastic Surgery Master Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS.

Advanced Aesthetic Technology

Both Juvéderm Volbella and Voluma use Vycross technology, Allergan’s proprietary filler technology that engineers smooth dermal injectables designed to meet specific treatment needs. In fact, Volbella is the first dermal filler to provide a non-surgical treatment for “smoker’s lines,” the tiny perioral lines around the mouth.

How Long Does This Facial Filler Treatment Last?

When you get injections around your mouth or perioral lines with Volbella, you immediately appear more youthful. The product turns back the hands of time and provides your treated areas with a smooth, natural texture. The majority of patients receiving Volbella treatment see great results for a year. The HA in the Volbella formula also enables the skin to retain moisture and softness. Patients gain the best results with one-month touch-ups to maintain optimal correction.

Is Volbella Safe?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the main active ingredient in Volbella, occurs naturally in your body, rendering Volbella safe for adults. Volbella restores your body's lost HA and softly adds volume and hydration to the treated skin. Despite being safe, minor side effects may occur, including swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising, discomfort, itching, or pain. These are only temporary when you receive your injections. Be certain to speak with Zenn Plastic Surgery’s Advanced Nurse Injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, about how to minimize or avoid swelling and bruising when you receive treatment.

What Is Recovery Like?

After your Volbella treatment at Zenn Plastic Surgery, you can return to work and your daily routine. Any side effects should go away in a few weeks. For the first day after your treatment, you should avoid strenuous activities, such as an intense workout. Wait at least 24 hours before exposing your treated areas to the sun.

Do Volbella Injections Hurt?

When you receive Volbella at Zenn Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, North Carolina, you can expect little to no discomfort. The product’s formulation includes a small dose of lidocaine, an anesthetic that reduces pain and improves comfort during your procedure. Zenn Plastic Surgery’s expert injector Tara Cypher, RN, MSN, CANS, uses small needles for facial injections to make the procedure more comfortable. Further comfort comes from the use of a topical numbing cream or by holding ice to your targeted area to desensitize the skin.
