Giving a Subtle, Enhanced Look
Many people start to lose volume in their lips as they age. The loss of important sugars like hyaluronic acid and the loss of collagen add to visible signs of aging. To smooth out the lips, the Volbella treatment will help get rid of the lines in and around the lips. At his Riverside office, Dr. Hardesty and his team help his patients rejuvenate the lips by making them look naturally plumper and volumized.
The Juvederm Volbella product is an injectable gel that helps with lip augmentation for correction of the perioral lines. This is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler to help correct the lips without giving a full appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the body. This helps with moisture and volume in the skin, the amount of HA in Volbella helps to treat those intricate fine lines and wrinkles, as well as smoothing out the lips. Dr. Hardesty and his team at Imagine Plastic Surgery want to make sure to help their patients with their lip augmentation needs.
To make sure that your aesthetic desires are taken care of and you get the best results possible, Dr. Hardesty will come up with a personalized treatment plan for you. This treatment plan will consist of how many treatments are needed and the amount of the injection used, as well as the injection areas for the best results. To create this plan, Dr. Hardesty will listen to your concerns as well as your aesthetic desires. By doing this thorough examination at the consultation, Dr. Hardesty will let you know if the Volbella treatment will benefit you.
At the time of the treatment, Dr. Hardesty will inject the gel-like formula right into the treatment area that is pre-defined by you and Dr. Hardesty. This treatment is unique because it is specifically designed to help smooth out the lines on and around the lips. Lip injections are relatively painless, but for the patients’ comfort, the Volbella gel also uses lidocaine to help with any discomfort. Dr. Hardesty may use a numbing treatment to help make his patients feel comfortable and relaxed. That is very important to the team at Imagine Plastic Surgery. The Volbella treatment uses Vycross technology which is a technology from Allergen that yields smooth dermal filler products. This treatment will give you a smooth, natural look in the lips.
At the consultation appointment, Dr. Hardesty will go over your concerns and aesthetic desires to see if the Volbella injectable filler will benefit you. By going over your medical history and allergens, Dr. Hardesty will ensure that this is a safe option for you.
There is no official recovery time associated with Volbella injections. There are some side effects associated with the injection, the most common being tenderness, redness, or swelling at the injection site. Most patients experience some mild side effects that will subside within a couple of days. Expect about 1- 4 days of mild swelling. Dr. Hardesty will provide detailed instructions on how to prepare for the treatment as well as how to help take care of the injections post-treatment.
Typically, the results from a Volbella treatment last for up to one year in most patients.
You can apply a cool compress to the treatment area 24 hours after a Volbella treatment.
Exercising immediately after a Volbella treatment might cause more moderate side effects so it best to wait a couple days before resuming exercise.
