Should You Trust Juvederm Volbella for Your Smile Makeover?
In October 2016, Laser Clinique and its medical director P. Alexander Ataii, MD, will be offering Juvederm Volbella in San Diego for women and men unsatisfied with the appearance of their lips and skin surrounding their lips. Recently approved by the FDA, Volbella is specially formulated to volumize lips, restore symmetry to “flat” lips and even smooth away vertical wrinkles often called “smoker’s lines”. Other reasons people seek noninvasive lip augmentation include restoring symmetry to the face following trauma, accentuate the natural “cupid’s bow” forming lips or plumping lips that have atrophied due to genetics or aging.
Why Should You Choose Juvederm Volbella?
After successfully passing numerous clinical trials, Volbella filler has been found to have multiple advantages over other dermal fillers. Benefits of enhancing your perioral area with Juvederm Volbella in San Diego include:
- A less dense, smoother injectable gel that enters your tissues more easily than other dermal fillers. This not only minimizes side effects such as bruising and swelling but also allows the gel to spread more rapidly throughout tissues to effect quicker results.
- Volbella incorporates VYCROSS® technology that combines long chain and short chain hyaluronic acid to promote more effective cross-linking than found in other dermal injectables. Applying VYCROSS® technology to Juvederm Volbella means it lasts longer (up to 12 months in some users) and offers a significantly decreased need for follow-up treatments. Blending multiple molecular weights of HA also contributes to the duration of Volbella filler.
- Approved in Europe five years ago, Juvederm Volbella has been used in men and women in over 70 countries without any reported incidences of serious adverse reactions. It continues to be one of the most popular lip volumizers and lip wrinkle smoothers in Europe.
- According to clinical trial results leading to FDA approval of Juvederm Volbella, common side effects were temporary and involves redness, itching, bruising, swelling and/or tenderness. Most side effects reported by trial participants disappeared within 30 days of appearing.

What is Lidocaine and How Does Reduce Volbella Filler Injection Discomfort?
Volbella filler includes lidocaine, a tissue anesthetic that has been used for years in treating a variety of medical conditions or as a nerve block during minimally invasive procedures. By adding lidocaine to their lip volumizer, Allergan has increased the comfort level of those opting to restore lip appearance and smooth away unsightly smoker’s lines puckering their lips. Numbing abilities of lidocaine begin working shortly after an injection is completed and lasts for at least 30 minutes but usually no longer than three hours. Additionally, lidocaine is listed on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, which indicates medications necessary to support a basic healthcare system.
Who are Good Candidates for Juvederm Volbella in San Diego?
Too much sun, being a smoker, aging and a host of other factors typically contribute to the development of fine, vertically running lines appearing at the top, bottom and corners of your lips. These “smoker’s wrinkles” or vertical lip lines can also appear on nonsmokers as well, adding years to their true age and making it difficult to wear lipstick that doesn’t fade and crack soon after applying it.
Lips can also lose their youthful fullness as we age because of decreasing amounts of collagen being produced in the skin. Collagen is essential for the firm, smooth, soft skin we enjoy in our 20s and 30s. Unfortunately, collagen levels start decreasing in our 40s, leaving us with less firm, dryer, wrinkled skin and thinner, less defined lips.
If you don’t like the appearance of your lips or those unattractive wrinkles puckering your mouth, you may be a good candidate for Volbella filler treatment at Laser Clinique.
