Your lips frame your smile, one of the most recognizable features of your face.
As you age, the perioral lines around your lips can become more prominent due to volume loss, sun damage, or smoking, and are not as easy to treat with topical creams or ointments.
The lips themselves can also lose volume, creating a thinner line that may make you look older or more serious than you really feel.
Fortunately, you can plump your lips and smooth out the accompanying perioral lines with an injectable treatment of Juvederm® Volbella® at Carolina Facial Plastics.
Carolina Facial Plastics is led by myself, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Kulbersh, and my team of cosmetic experts.
My fully accredited surgery center is located in SouthPark, and focuses exclusively on providing remarkable care and exceptional results with both surgical and minimally-invasive treatment options.
My board-certified physician assistants Heather Bryant and Amanda Piligian, and board-certified nurse practitioner Courney Whitley, effectively use Juvederm Volbella to turn back the clock on your lips, and give you a reason to smile again.
We also use Volbella, as well as other fillers in the Juvederm and Restylane families, to make minor corrections and enhancements to the nose. Known as a non-surgical rhinoplasty or non-surgical nose job, this is one of the most popular uses in our office for injectable fillers like Vobella.
Juvederm Volbella is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body.
Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating ingredient that diminishes in our bodies over time, leading to skin dryness and the formation of wrinkles.
When injected into strategic treatment areas, Volbella lip injections with HA restores volume and smoothes lines and wrinkles around the lips to rejuvenate your pout. When injected into the nose, Volbella can smooth away bumps and dips, while creating more symmetry and balance to this central feature.
FDA-approved Volbella is a unique dermal filler because of its near match to the hyaluronic acid your body naturally creates.
The unique crosslinking technology of this filler creates a more seamless look while maintaining the natural movement of the mouth.
Volbella’s innovative cross linking of HA molecules also ensures more durable results, with some patients enjoying their improvements for up to one full year.
Volbella is used to augment the lips by adding volume, and smoothing the lines and wrinkles around the lips that are caused by the natural aging process, sun damage, or smoking. It is also used to enhance the nose without surgery.
We administer Juvederm Volbella as a quick outpatient treatment at our Charlotte medical spa.
Juvederm Volbella is the first filler approved by the FDA to treat perioral lines as well as increase lip volume.
Juvederm Volbella has lasting results, up to 12 months for some patients.
Patients typically see positive improvement immediately following treatment, with results continuing to settle in for a few days following the procedure as swelling subsides and the filler evens out in the treatment area.
We can create a treatment plan for you to ensure you enjoy your fuller lips indefinitely with regular touch-ups.
Our medical spa patients return to regular activities immediately following their lip injections treatment in most cases.
You might encounter some mild swelling or bruising after treatment, but these side effects typically subside within a day or two if they do occur.
Because we use the gentler microcannula approach to administer our fillers, our patients tend to see fewer side effects than they would if we used a needle for our treatments.
My team of expertly-trained professionals have cared for and treated thousands of patients using injectable dermal fillers like Juvederm Volbella.
When you choose a dermal filler, you want a trusted, FDA-approved product that is safe and effective, and an injector who has the qualifications and experience to use them correctly.
The methods and procedures used at Carolina Facial Plastics are the most advanced, safe, and effective today. Schedule your consultation today, and find out how Juvederm Volbella can enhance your smile.
Frequently asked questions
Your initial consultation will determine the best approach for your Juvederm Volbella procedure.
The treatments are quick, and you will be in and out of the office in 30 minutes or less in most cases.
The skin in the planned treatment area will be cleansed before the injections. The solution is injected into the targeted areas via microcannulas rather than needles to minimize the risk of side effects like bruising or swelling.
Juvederm Volbella solution contains lidocaine to make the process more comfortable. You can also receive a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area prior to the injections.
The length of a treatment session varies depending on how much is being treated, but on average your treatment session is 30 minutes or less, with each injection only taking a few minutes.
You can also combine other treatments with your Volbella injections during one appointment, which would extend the amount of time you spend in your office.
You will see immediate results after your treatment, but it can take a week or two for Juvederm Volbella to completely settle into the treatment areas and for residual swelling to subside. At that time, you will see your final results take effect.
