You want fuller lips, lips that are more proportional to your face, but you also don’t want them to look unnatural. Overblown lips have been a trend for a while, but trends come and go: proportion is always in style. At SkinMD Chicago located in Chicago, IL, we are proud to offer Volbella Chicago, a dermal filler specifically designed to add natural volume to the lips so that you still look like you.
How Does Volbella Give You Fuller Lips?
If lip injections were an industry in and of itself, Juvéderm would be the leading the way and paving the path toward new advancements with one product: Volbella. This dermal filler doesn’t just blow up your lips and send you on your way but instead, it can contour with precision and outline the lips, improve their shape and symmetry, and add volume that’s proportional to the rest of your face.
It uses small-sized hyaluronic acid particles to fill in delicate areas like the lips without making them look overblown. Hyaluronic acid is a substance the body produces naturally, which is why it blends seamlessly below the surface of the skin. Once injected, the crystal clear gel formula plumps your lips from the inside out. When you choose this dermal filler to augment your lips, you’ll get natural, subtle, and beautiful lips that fit your face perfectly.
What Does It Treat?
Volbella is designed for all things lips. It can increase the fullness of one or both of your lips, it can correct imperfections with symmetry, and it can contour and add definition to your lips. It can make all of your lip goals become a reality. This effective formula, combined with the skill of our experienced injectors will give you results you may have never dreamed possible.
Most patients choose this filler to add volume to their lips. Not many people want to commit to everything surgical lip enhancement involves, which is why they turn to Volbella. This dermal filler has provided so many people with an effective, non-surgical way to augment their lips. Whether you want to increase the fullness of one or both of your lips, our injectors are ready to meet your every need.
Symmetry is a determining factor in what makes the most aesthetically pleasing face. If you have asymmetrical lips, this filler can restore symmetry to your face by correcting this condition.
If you have any other concerns regarding your lips, such as your cupid’s bow, the shape of your lips, or the size, be sure to discuss these concerns in detail during your initial consultation with an injector so that all of your concerns can be addressed and corrected during your treatment.
This formulation of Juvéderm is most commonly used to augment the lips but it also has other uses. Many people develop vertical lip lines around their mouth due to the aging process and they’re very hard to treat with topical products alone. Juvéderm found a solution for these perioral lines with Volbella.
When injected into the areas around the mouth, this hyaluronic acid-based filler will smooth these lines immediately, restoring youth to the area and making you look and feel better.
The Treatment Process
You’re convinced: you now know that Volbella is the best of the best, so now what? How do you get your hands on it? We can help. Our expert injectors are skilled and fully trained to administer this injectable with the light touch of an artist. They will help all of your dreams come true and even make some aesthetic suggestions so that you get the best results. They can help you achieve your dream lips in just one treatment.
Your Volbella journey will begin with an initial consultation. We want to know what you want your lips to look like, listen to your concerns, and help correct any problems your lips may exhibit like shape, proportion, or symmetry.
We’ll also review your health history and make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients in this filler. We’ll explain the process, tell you how to prepare for your appointment, and develop a treatment plan that will help you reach your lip goals. Once you get the green light, we’ll schedule your appointment.
It may seem strange to get excited about getting a needle in your lips, but this is always a day that our patients look forward to with excitement for two reasons. First, they know that they won’t feel a thing, and second, they know that they’ll get to walk out with instant results. Juvéderm fillers are all made with hyaluronic acid. Inside each syringe is a specific formulation designed to treat different areas of the face, and this one is no different.
A Painless Experience
If you’re worried about experiencing any pain during the treatment process, you won’t. Juvéderm fillers are fitted with an ultra-fine needle, and they all include lidocaine as a primary ingredient. Lidocaine is a mild pain killer that creates a numbing effect so you don’t feel any discomfort during treatment.
The inclusion of lidocaine in this filler, combined with the topical numbing gel we can apply, and the injectable’s super thin needle all work together to ensure that you don’t feel a thing.
Administering the Injections
Before the treatment begins, your lips will be cleaned and prepared for the injections. Then, your injector will administer your injections based on your treatment plan and make the necessary injections in different locations on your lips. Once your injector has finished administering the filler, she may then massage your lips to evenly distribute the filler throughout your lips.
Once your appointment is complete, you’ll be free to head home. The benefit of these dermal fillers is that there is no downtime. You will be able to resume all your normal daily activities with a few exceptions. We will ask you to avoid excess sun exposure for the first few days following your treatment to make sure that your results come out perfectly.
You should also refrain from applying any lipstick or gloss to your lips immediately following your treatment. Avoid anything that could put pressure on your lips. Also avoid excessive heat, including hot tubs, saunas, and steam rooms, to ensure the best results. Your injector will review all of the aftercare instructions with you before you head home, so you’ll know exactly how to take care of your lips after your treatment.
We’re Always Here
If you at any point have any questions or concerns about your treatment, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our experienced staff members will answer any questions you may have and even schedule a follow-up visit if needed. We are here for you every step of your Juvéderm journey and want you to feel comfortable and confident at each step of the process.
Enjoying Your Lips
One of the perks of using dermal fillers is that you don’t have to wait around for your results. They will continue to improve after your appointment but when you walk out you will notice a visible difference in your appearance. Your lips will be fuller and will suit your face perfectly, and as the filler settles, you’ll be able to enjoy your best results a few weeks after treatment.
All of the dermal fillers from the Juvéderm collection are long-lasting. That means, when you choose any of these fillers including Volbella, you are choosing a filler that will give you results that last at least a full calendar year. Most patients who choose this filler experience results that last for one year, with optimal treatment.
Scheduling Your Follow-Up Treatments
Some patients come back for touch-up appointments to add more fullness based on personal preference, but generally, most patients are happy with the results after one treatment and come back for a maintenance appointment at one year.
As soon as you notice a change in the appearance of your lips, you’ll know that your body has begun to metabolize the ingredients in the filler. The effects will wear off slowly, but to avoid any serious interruption in your appearance, all you need to do is schedule a follow-up treatment and our injectors cab add more filler into your lips so that you can maintain your results.
Maintaining Your Results
Once you achieve your desired results, there are some ways that you can improve those results and make your lips look as good as possible. The lips are often overlooked in terms of skincare. Aside from using Chapstick here and there, we don’t typically think about caring for our lips the same way we do our face.
One way to keep your lips youthful is to practice regular exfoliation. There are many different lip scrubs that you can purchase online or in the store that contain natural ingredients like cane sugar, beeswax, or coconut oil that will effectively exfoliate your lips without leaving them dry or irritated. The benefit of lip exfoliation is that not only does it help make your results look that much better, but it helps your lip products apply better.
Hydrating your lips with a moisturizer is one of the best things that you can do for them. Now that you have the lips of your dreams, you want to keep them looking as good as possible by investing in a high-quality lip treatment void of parabens or chemicals that could harm your lips and your body.
