It was recently announced by Allergan that their newest Juvederm® product, Volbella® XC, had received approval by the FDA.

What is Volbella®?
A new injectable filler engineered to improve the skin around the lips and mouth, Volbella® provides lip definition and volume, smoothing the fine lines around the mouth. It also decreases the look of depressions at the corners of your mouth.
Volbella® was engineered similarly to Allergan’s Voluma® filler in that Vycross™ technology was utilized to create an appealing look and natural feel, providing attractive results that last up to one year. In addition, this treatment contains an anesthetic to alleviate discomfort during the injections.
Volbella® is unique compared to other injectables in that the formula was developed specifically for addressing issues of overfilling and deflation around the mouth. It offers particularly natural, subtle results due to the ultra-smooth gel filler. Volbella® drastically reduces the likelihood of any unnatural appearance.
How do I know I can trust Volbella® with my smile?
The Juvederm® product line, including Volbella®, uses therapeutic levels of hyaluronic acid to gently smooth fine lines around the mouth and softly enhance the lips. Volbella® uses Vycross™ technology and a lower hydrophilic composition to produce wonderfully natural results. Dr. Goldberg injects the ultra-smooth gel with a fine needle. Research shows that 98% of Volbella® recipients feel that they’ve achieved their aesthetic goals through this cosmetic treatment.
How long does Volbella® last?
This product is superior to other injectable fillers due to its longevity. An impressive 80% of those who choose the treatment are still happy with the results up to one year later.
What can Volbella® lip injections do for you?
- Smooth unsightly vertical lines above and below the mouth
- Provide border definition around the lips
- Make the lips appear fuller and plumper
- Increase the definition of the cupid’s bow (the “M” shape above the top lip)

What should I expect before Volbella® treatment?
Our providers will meet with you prior to your injections in order to answer any questions you have, discuss your cosmetic treatment options, and assess whether they he recommend Volbella® for you. The actual procedure may consist of several injections with a fine needle. The initial injections may be somewhat uncomfortable, however, the local anesthetic in the product will then take over and alleviate the discomfort. The entire procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes.
What should I do after Volbella® treatment?
You will likely be given an ice pack to apply to the area, which will help reduce redness and swelling. You should wait 12 hours before using any makeup on the treatment area or exposing yourself to the sun. The majority of Volbella® patients are able to resume normal activity immediately with no downtime.
Will Volbella® injections hurt?
Vycross™ products such as Volbella® are very smooth, which facilitates easy injection. Each application contains a therapeutic dose of Lidocaine, which reduces any pain you might experience and makes the process more comfortable for you.
Will there be swelling after Volbella®?
Minor swelling and bruising are normal following cosmetic facial treatments. Because Volbella® absorbs less water than other injections, you will typically experience less swelling than you may have with past treatments. Recovery is usually fast, and any swelling or bruising will clear up in under a week. In addition, allergic reactions are extremely rare due to the fact that hyaluronic acid already exists naturally in the human body.
Can Volbella® treatments be combined with additional treatments?
Volbella® may be used in conjunction with cosmetic laser procedures in order to enhance the results around your mouth. You can discuss this option with our providers in order to determine if it is the right choice for your situation and desired look.
