As we age, we tend to lose volume in the lips. Lip filler in Columbus, when injected by an expert, can plump up the lips to whatever degree you feel comfortable. At Columbus Facial Plastics, we specialize in helping patients achieve their perfect lips. JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® is a dermal lip filler developed specifically for the lips and the fine lines that border the lips. The area above the lips is prone to develop fines lines. VOLBELLA® lip filler can help smooth this area.
For patient comfort, we numb the lips with a topical treatment prior to injection. Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Nogan, Certified Nurse Practitioner Shireen Shatti, and Nurse Injector Nancy Cotterman, RN are experts in the art of lip filler injections. They provide patients with a consultation during every injection to determine your expectations.
Frequency of Treatments
Once every 6-12 months
Lips and perioral area
Temporary and mild pain intensity and may include swelling, tenderness, redness and bruising. Swelling may cause your lips to evaporate moisture more rapidly. Keep them coated with Aquaphor, Chap Stick, or lip balm for 24/48 hours.
This filler is unique in that it is designed not only for gentle restoration of natural looking lip volume, but can also be used for defining lip contours and smoothing fine ‘smoker’ lines around the lips while supporting the ‘marionette’ lines down the chin. It is also ideal for accentuating the lips, plump them to add subtle fullness and enhancing the Cupid’s bow.
How do JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® lip injections work?
Volbella lip filler was developed by Allergan, the manufactures of BOTOX Cosmetic. By using Allergan’s Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is formulated with a combination of high and low molecular weight technology. This effective cross-linking results in less swelling and increased ease of delivery. The unique technology delivers an ultra-smooth gel, which results in a natural look and feel, as well as improved duration.
How long will Juvederm VOLBELLA® Lip Filler last?
Recent studies by Allergan report that results can last up to a year.
VOLBELLA® or BOTOX®Cosmetic?
VOLBELLA® is used to fill a deficit and add volume to an area. BOTOX Cosmetic is used to temporarily paralyze the muscle when repetitive motion causes lines. Sometimes both of these products may be used together.
