We are excited to now offer our patients at our practice a new injectable filler, for the lost volume in the cheeks, lips, and wrinkles around the mouth, called Juvéderm Volbella XC. For subtle enhancement of the lips, our patients over the age of 21 may request this injectable at a one-on-one consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi in Las Vegas, NV or Beverly Hills, CA. Made with the Allergan VYCROSS® filler technology, Volbella consists of a dosage of hyaluronic acid to fill in the lips and loss of volume in the cheeks, and to smooth the perioral rhytides (lines around the mouth) for about a year. Each injection session can be personalized for the patient, as this is not a one-size-fits all type of medication to plump your pout, and fill the hollowness in your facial features with Volbella. Your injection of Volbella will be a realistic enhancement of the lips, and never too filled or botched by our injector. If you would like to be considered for this new injectable, please call and schedule a consultation with Dr. Khorsandi at VIP Plastic Surgery.
Juvéderm Volbella® XC Reviews
Lip and facial injections can provide you with a soft, look natural with spectacular results. Once you have the one-on-one consultation, your first Volbella injection session will take about 15 – 30 minutes in our office. We will cleanse the areas to be injected. If you are worried about pain, we can put a topical numbing gel on the area before the injection. You will feel a minor amount of pain, but keep in mind that the medication is blended with lidocaine as well.
What to Expect@headingTag>
You can expect some redness and swelling in the area after the injections. Once you leave our office please limit heavy exercise, protect your face from sun exposure, and abstain from drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours. If you wish to have a chemical peel or a facial laser treatment, please tell the person performing these rejuvenation treatments that you have had Volbella injections.
Your Volbella injection fees will be dependent on the amount of the medication you need. During your personalized consultation, we will discuss with you the estimated pricing schedule for your dosage needs. The more injections and areas you wish to cover on your face will affect the price of the treatment. We can also discuss other injectables (fillers and/or wrinkle relaxers) for the different areas of your face and their price points.
am I a Candidate?@headingTag>
Men and women, who meet the age of 21 requirement, make ideal candidates for the Volbella injections (the Food and Drug Administration has not approved this drug for younger persons under 21). If you are taking immunosuppressive therapies, have severe allergies, a history of disproportionate scarring, or are taking blood thinning prescriptions, Volbella may not be the right choice for you. This will all be discussed during a consultation.
What are the risks?@headingTag>
Any medication problems you may have from your Volbella injections should last no more than 30 days, which may include bumpy skin at any site of injection, skin discoloration, swelling, bruising, pain, itching, or hardness under the skin. If you experience any discomforting side effects from this injectable, please contact our office as soon as possible to report it.
Do the injections hurt?@headingTag>
We will take every precaution to make Volbella injections as comfortable as possible. It may look painful when you view a video of the injections, however, we will provide you with a numbing agent (if necessary), and please keep in mind that Volbella has lidocaine blended into it as well. Of course, we do not want you to feel unnecessary pain, and will do our best to limit stinging injections.
