Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers Juvederm Volbella XC treatment to the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
What is Juvederm Volbella XC?
Volbella is part of the Juvederm family of products and, like most fillers, is a hyaluronic acid. However, it is a thin hyaluronic acid, making it ideal for fine or thin lines on the face. Volbella is FDA approved to provide subtle lip enhancement and improvement to lip lines around the mouth.
Who is a candidate for Volbella?
Anyone with fine lines around the mouth especially around the lips, chin, and cheeks. The filler is very thin so works well for finer lines in these areas. Volbella comes mixed with lidocaine to make the product more comfortable with treatment.
How is the Volbella treatment performed?
In our practice, Volbella is injected using a blunt micro-cannula to minimize the risk of bruising or swelling associated with the treatment. For finer lines, the thin needle provided with the product may be used.
What should I expect after the Volbella treatment?
Because we use blunt cannulas for treatment, most of the after effects are minimal. Patients can experience mild swelling for 24-36 hours with greater than 95% of our patients not experiencing any bruising at all. When used around the lips for vertical lip lines, Volbella may create mild bruising that may last 2-3 days but easily covered with lipstick or makeup.
