Many women feel that their lips are a major part of their femininity. A beautiful lipstick goes a long way in accenting one’s natural beauty and femininity. However, lipstick and similar cosmetics are very temporary. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL, we offer a longer-lasting solution, Juvederm Volbella. Today, we’re discussing how long this beauty-enhancing injectable lasts and much more.
How Long Does Volbella Last In the Lips?
As a general rule of thumb, you can expect your ideal results to last for roughly one year. This is very exciting because most lip fillers can only provide ideal results for up to six months. Can you imagine waking up confident in the appearance of your lips for 12 months straight? You can apply lipstick if you want to express your personality or accent your overall look, but you won’t feel the need to wear lipstick every day.
Note, the average client can enjoy their ideal results for a full year. Therefore, you may be able to enjoy your ideal results for over 12 months. It is not unheard of for people to enjoy their full results for 1.5 years before their lips start to thin again slowly. As a general rule, young, healthy people enjoy the longest-lasting results. Metabolism and lifestyle choices also affect the longevity of Volbella injections.
What Cosmetic Concerns Can Be Treated With This Injectable?
Volbella can be used to correct a wide array of cosmetic concerns. For example, it is often used to reverse the following aging signs:
- Smile lines
- Lipstick lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Age-related volume loss
- Downturned lip corners
However, you should be aware that this injectable isn’t only used to reverse volume loss caused by the aging process. It can also be used to treat asymmetry that you’ve lived with for your whole life. Also, it can be used to enhance the contours of your lips if you are displeased by your smile’s shape.
How Quickly Can I Expect to See the Results of My Treatment?
You can expect to see the initial results of your treatment as soon as your session is complete. Due to the silky, very thin nature of this Juvederm formula, it spreads through the lower layers of your skin quickly and settles in exactly where it needs to be. However, it can take between 10 and 14 days for your final results to become apparent.
This is because your final results are due to an increase in localized collagen and elastin production. Your skin starts this increased production rate right away but won’t complete the extra production for several days.
What Are the Advantages of This Injectable?
There are many advantages of Volbella injections, including how long the results last and how quickly the results become apparent. Here are some other advantages this treatment offers.
This Treatment Is Painless
Another advantage of this injectable is that the treatment is completely pain-free. This formula contains lidocaine, an injectable numbing medication that starts working immediately. Even better, it only takes 15 seconds to take full effect. You will feel a slight pressure as the first injection is administered, but then the treatment area will be numb for the rest of the injection session. If you’re wary of needles, let us know during your initial consultation.
We will gladly apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area before we administer the first injection. Just be aware that it may take around 15 minutes for the topical anesthetic to take full effect. Also, you should be aware that we use a very fine-gauge needle to administer the filler, so you won’t experience any pain during your treatment.
This Treatment Is Safe
Like all other Juvederm formulas, this formula is approved by the FDA for safety. To earn this approval, this formula was studied in numerous independent clinical trials. Thanks to the FDA approval, you can rest assured that you do not need to worry about any awful side effects after your treatment if you are a good candidate.
Note, to find out whether you are a good candidate for this treatment, you need to attend an initial consultation. During this initial consultation, we will review your health history to ensure that this treatment will be safe for you.
As a general rule, fairly healthy adults who are at least 22 years of age and concerned about the appearance of their lips and mouth qualify for this treatment. However, even if you are fairly healthy, you will need to hold off on this treatment if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or experiencing skin irritation. For instance, you may be precluded from this treatment temporarily if you are experiencing:
- Fever blisters
- Herpes labialis
- Atopic dermatitis
- Extremely chapped lips
