Juvederm Volbella XC®
Juvederm Volbella® XC Treatments in New York City
The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York® is one of the first in New York to offer Volbella injections for the treatment of Perioral Rhytides (smokers lines) and Lip volume. Patients who have received Volbella treatments have found that it subtly adds to the fullness of the lips while smoothing the perioral lines around the mouth with results lasting up to a year. The clinical trials which led to FDA approval for this new filler were conducted right here at our center.
What kind of results can a patient expect?
The results for Juvederm Volbella have shown improvement to lip fullness and a smoother appearance of lines around the mouth. The results of treatment generally last up to one year.
What can New York Volbella patient expect during treatment?
During treatment at our New York City or Southampton office, the dermatologist will administer the gel to the desired areas. The gel will be injected in small amounts and the doctor may massage the treatment area gently to assure that the product is evenly distributed. To further reduce pain, our office staff can also use a topical gel to numb the desired treatment area, though not all patients may find this necessary. Because Volbella® contains lidocaine, patients have found the procedure more bearable rating it a 3 on a 10 – point pain scale.
What are the possible side effects?
Common side effects include bruising, swelling, tenderness, firmness, bump/lumps, pain, discoloration and itching. Most side effects last 30 days or less. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced by the body.
