juvederm volbella is that latest Hyaluronic acid based filler from allergan. It became approved by the FDA June 1, 2016. Unlike juvederm and voluma it is mainly used for lip volume, contouring the lip, and helping smooth those pesky upper lip lines so much of us complain about. This filler is different from juvederm ultra or ultra plus because it attracts less water after the injection causing much less swelling and bruising. Juvederm Volbella can last from 12-14 months which also makes it different than any other soft tissue filler used for lip enhancement.
Where can Volbella be Injected
- Into the lips for volume
- Oral commissure to help with downward turn mouth
- Upper and lower lip lines or "smoker's lines"
- Superficial smile lines
- Crows feet
- Under the eyes

"I have visited the MedSpa for spider vein removal, IPL, and a chemical peel. On my first visit I was so nervous because of course I had read every horror story on the internet about procedures going wrong. Marie was absolutely terrific! She explained every step of the procedure, any related down time, and the realistic results I could expect. I love my skin now more in my 40s than I ever have-even in my 20s. For the first time in my life I no longer wear foundation without being self-conscious. I would definitely recommend Mountcastle Medical Spa to anyone who is thinking about improving their skin or just has questions."- S.N. / Yelp / Apr 29, 2019

Can it be combined?
Volbella can be used in conjunction with voluma and or juvederm depending on how much volume loss is present. Volbella is great for the mouth area and improving the more superficial etched in lines that are there at rest whereas juvederm and voluma are really adding volume to areas like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and cheeks. When combining Volbella with other allergan injectables you benefit from earning brilliant distinctions points and getting money back towards your next injectable treatment!
What happens after treatment?
We find that Volbella has significantly less downtime than the other injectables because it attracts less water than any of the other fillers keeping the swelling to a minimum. An ice pack will be provided to help lessen and discomfort, swelling, or bruising. You will be asked to return in 2 weeks for a follow up.
Am I a good candidate?
If you have decreased lip volume, downward turned mouth, or upper lip lines, Volbella could be right for you. Please feel free to call for a complimentary consultation regarding what injectables work for you

Since Volbella is a longer lasting product it does tend to cost more than juvederm or restylane.
It is longer lasting due to its mixture of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid makeup.
Volbella vs Juvederm/Restylane
It is easier to shape and mold due to the vycross technology which gives it a greater degree of range in the balance of elasticity and cohesivity.
Creates less swelling at the area it’s been injected due to lower HA concentration drawing less moisture and causing less reactionary inflammation
Due to it being less viscous, it is smoother and easier to inject (lower extrusion force required) than the more viscous juvederm ultra.
Due to the fact that volbella lasts longer than juvederm and restylane the overall cost savings is increased as less product would need to be used over a year's time and less injections needed. For example, having to get 1 juvederm injection every six months for a total of 2 in a year would cost more than 1 injection of volbella which would last a year.
