Procedures ( View All )

Overview

At the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville, we are excited to now offer our patients a new injectable filler for the lips and wrinkles around the mouth called Juvéderm Volbella® XC. For subtle enhancement of the lips, our patients over the age of 21 may request this injectable at a one-on-one consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. Made with the Allergan VYCROSS® technology, Volbella® consists of a dosage of hyaluronic acid to fill in the lips, loss of volume in the cheeks, and to smooth the perioral rhytides (lines around the mouth). If you would like to be considered for this new injectable at one of our locations, please call and schedule a consultation with one of our friendly patient coordinators at your earliest convenience.

Administering Volbella®

After your consultation with one of our medical professionals at the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville, you will have an in-office appointment for your first Juvéderm Volbella® XC injections. The treatment session usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes, and this is dependent on how many injections are required for the desired result. Every dosage is personalized for each patient. The area will be cleansed and marked before the syringe goes into the skin. To limit pain, a topic numbing cream can be added to the injection site, however, the medication is mixed with lidocaine for this reason. Patients will feel a small amount of pain, but it can be controlled. After the appointment is over, you should limit heavy exercise, sun exposure, and avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours.

What to Expect

During your consultation, be prepared to answer some person health history questions to see if you are an ideal patient for this prescription. You may not be a good candidate if you have severe allergies, a history of excessive scarring as this may cause scarring, are using immunosuppressive therapies to limit your risk of possible infection, or are taking blood thinners or medications to prolong bleeding as this may cause an increase in bruising or bleeding at the site of injection. You should tell anyone performing laser treatments or chemical peels that you have had the Volbella® injection as you may risk inflammation in the treatment area.
