Juvéderm Volbella is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that enhances the lips. Bolstered with hyaluronic acid, it can smooth and minimize vertical lip lines, as well as give the lips shape and make them fuller. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating substance naturally found in the skin and acts as a plumping agent. When injected into the facial tissue, it adds volume and fills creases.Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg are New York City-based Board Certified dermatologists and specialists in non-surgical cosmetic techniques. They often recommend Juvéderm Volbella injections alone or as part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenation and enhancement program.

Juvéderm Volbella enhances the lips and softens vertical lip lines

As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity, leading to the formation of lines and other signs of aging. Part of the Juvéderm family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Juvéderm Volbella formula has been optimized to treat the lip and mouth area. Juvéderm Volbella is best for patients who would like to:

  • Volumize thinning lips due to the aging process
  • Smooth out vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Enhance the contours and shape of the lips

How are Juvéderm Volbella treatments performed?

A Juvéderm Volbella treatment is a procedure that is done at the doctors’ Manhattan office. During the appointment, your doctor will introduce the specially formulated gel into the lips and skin around the mouth. This is done with a fine needle to precisely control the amounts of the product injected. To achieve subtle, natural-looking results, it is important to introduce the gel with expertise.

This procedure is made virtually painless with a topical anesthetic gel.

A single session can be done less than an hour. Redness, mild discoloration, and tenderness can be seen after the treatment. However, these symptoms resolve quickly and no real downtime is required. Most patients continue their day as they normally would.
