Preparing for Your Juvéderm Volbella Injections in Devon, PA
Two weeks before your treatment, your board-certified dermatologist may recommend that you:
- Avoid taking NSAIDs, supplements, fish oil, and other substances that can prolong bleeding
- Avoid blood thinners
- Take arnica supplements a week before the procedure to help speed up the healing of bruises
- Start a prophylaxis dose of an anti-viral medication before treatment if you are prone to cold sores
Q: How does Juvéderm Volbella work?
A: Juvéderm Volbella is comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps the skin retain moisture and maintain a plump and youthful appearance. As we age, the production of HA, collagen, and elastin slows down, causing the skin to wrinkle, sag, and look hollow. Fillers rejuvenate the skin by adding HA back into the dermal structure to effectively restore support to a target area.
When injected into the dermal layers, a lip filler like Volbella will add fullness to the lips and smooth away other fine lines on the face. Volbella’s ultra-smooth consistency gives it the ability to add volume without looking overdone. While plumping thin lips, Juvéderm Volbella also effectively reverses some signs of aging around the lips while refreshing and rejuvenating your appearance.
Q: Do Juvéderm Volbella injections hurt?
A: Our board-certified dermatologists administer Juvéderm Volbella injections using a very fine needle or microcannula to minimize discomfort during treatment.
Lidocaine, a numbing medication, is included in the Juvéderm Volbella formulation to further reduce discomfort. Most patients find the treatment to be quick and relatively comfortable.
Q: What to expect during my Juvéderm Volbella treatment in Devon, PA?
A: Juvéderm lip filler treatments are quick and relatively comfortable. Your dermatologist will inject Volbella using a fine needle or microcannula. The filler formulation contains a small amount of lidocaine, a mild analgesic, to increase your comfort during the procedure.
For patients concerned about discomfort during the procedure, we do offer options, such as topical numbing cream. After your treatment, you will be able to return to your activities right away. Some patients may see minor swelling or bruising at injection sites, but this will resolve within a couple of days and can usually be easily hidden with makeup.
Q: Juvéderm Volbella after care
A: While recovery time varies for each patient, there are steps you can take to ensure your fillers settle in the most natural way for the best possible results.
- Use a cold compress or an ice pack with a towel and apply on the treated area soon after treatment.
- Avoid strenuous activities for 48 hours to reduce swelling and bruising.
- Do not rub or massage the treatment areas (unless specifically advised by your provider).
- Avoid facials for one week.
- You can use makeup to conceal any bruising.
- You may take arnica supplements to help reduce bruising.
Q: Juvéderm Volbella side effects
A: Side effects from Juvéderm Volbella filler are uncommon and temporary if they do occur. Some patients might experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites, which typically subside within a day or two.
Keep in mind the lips are delicate and are more susceptible to swelling and bruising than other treatment areas. Give yourself a few days to heal before any important social or professional events.
Q: How long do Juvéderm Volbella lip fillers last?
A: You will see immediate improvement after your Juvéderm Volbella injections. These results will last up to several months. How long Volbella lasts will depend on the treatment area and how quickly your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid.
You can maintain your Volbella lips and refreshed appearance indefinitely with regularly scheduled treatment sessions. Our board-certified dermatologists will help customize the best treatment plan for you.
Q: What is the recovery like after Juvéderm Volbella injections?
A: There is very minimal downtime. After your treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities.
Bruising is common on injection sites, so plan accordingly with your personal and professional obligations. Your dermatologist may give you specific aftercare instructions after your Juvéderm lip treatment.
