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.

"Very friendly personnel. Have been a client for a few years and have never had a problem. They send you reminders for your appointment and have kept the price of Botox (per unit) very reasonably."- N.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 2017
"Well I had 3 babies in 2.5 years and some problem veins reappeared. Dr Mountcastle had to perform some touch ups on my right leg and then work on my left leg. As usual I was in and out. They verified my insurance before scheduling the procedures to make the process extra smooth. FYI - for those that don't know, most insurance companies cover varicose vein procedures. Everything about this office is simple... appointment scheduling, record review, procedures, etc. I would never go to another practice for any kind of vein work or plastic surgery. Dr Mountcastle is THE BEST!I'll also add that in the first review I made almost 4 years ago, I commented on the nurses. I haven't had any issues during the past 2 years that I've been returning. They're all wonderful and friendly!"- K.R. / Yelp / Jun 20, 2017
Can it be combined?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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?@headingTag>
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@headingTag>
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.
