Derick Dermatology has recently started offering Volbella treatments and their patients are loving the results! If you’ve been curious about fillers but haven’t heard about Volbella, here are some facts that just might convince you to make an appointment today.

What is Volbella?
Volbella in a new injectable filler meant to improve the shape, fullness, and overall appearance of your lips and the other areas around your mouth.

How is it Different?
Volbella is different from other fillers in that it involves technology that results in less swelling, a more natural look and feel, and improved duration. Additionally, Volbella contains lidocaine, making the injection procedure more comfortable than ever.

What Specific Areas Can Benefit?
Volbella is for much more than simply plumping your lips. Volbella injections can specifically target:

  • Vertical lines around the mouth (smoker’s lines)
  • Marionette lines that extend from the mouth to the chin
  • Down-turned mouth corners
  • Lip volume and shape, particularly the Cupid’s Bow

What Does the Procedure Entail?
After an initial consultation to determine if Volbella is right for you, you will experience a procedure much like any other dermatological injection. No pre-numbing is necessary, as Volbella contains lidocaine to minimize discomfort. The procedure is performed in-office, leaves very little swelling or bruising, and requires no downtime, allowing you to return to business as usual when you leave. To help reduce swelling and redness, your doctor will suggest the use of an ice pack after the injection.
