We are proud to offer the highest quality of care to patients from the Park City and Salt Lake City areas. At Saltz Plastic Surgery, we work closely with you to find the treatment or surgical procedure that will meet your needs for natural beauty. Many of our patients achieve their desired appearance with injectable solutions like Volbella®.
What Are the Benefits of Volbella®?
Volbella® is a dermal filler product made with vycross technology. Its consistency and smoothness make it ideal for treating the lips and the tear troughs. Specific benefits of this particular filler product include:
- Definition. Definition is important when working with characteristics of youthful lips, such as the cupid’s bow or the border around the mouth. Volbella® has an excellent hold on shape compared to other fillers.
- Softness. Adding definition and fullness is one thing, but you don’t want to lose the natural feel of the lips! And you don’t with Volbella®.
- Quick recovery. We don’t mean bruising or redness, we mean swelling. Clearly, the idea of a dermal filler is to attract water molecules. But too many means overly plump lips until the product settles. Volbella® is a little gentler in its draw on water and therefore lets you see the final result right away.
- Integration. The molecules of the Volbella® filler integrate and tangle with natural hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen molecules, creating results that last. On average, results last up to 12 months.
How Does Volbella® Work?
Volbella® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler product. It adds fullness and shape to the lips and to fine lines and wrinkles by attracting and binding to water molecules that are present in the tissue beneath the skin. This process occurs quickly after the product is inserted into the desired area, so you see the results you seek right away.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Volbella® Injections?
Adults of all ages can restore a more youthful aesthetic with Volbella® treatment in our Park City or Salt Lake City office. This filler is commonly used to restore fullness and definition to the lips, which may fade with age or may have never completely developed. If you crave a more voluptuous mouth, Volbella® may be an excellent choice for you.
Another concern for which Volbella® is appropriate is under eye puffiness. Bags under the eyes make you appear tired and aged. Using an ultra-fine gauge syringe, we insert the smooth hyaluronic acid solution into the tear trough area to reduce the line between the under eye and the cheek. Smoothing this line means disguising bags – and restoring the appearance of a younger version of you.
Will I Have a Natural Look?
One of the primary benefits of this new dermal filler is its smooth consistency. The cross-linking that has taken place in the development process means that the filler, once in the skin, integrates with amazing speed. All you see is a refreshed reflection of yourself.
Are the Results Permanent?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are metabolized by the body over time. Because Volbella® has been cross-linked with vycross technology, this product seems to hold up better than its competitors. Patients who smooth fine lines, correct under eye puffiness, or define their lips with Volbella® can enjoy results for several months at a time. Retreatment may be necessary about once a year in order to maintain the desired aesthetic.
