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.
"Dr. DJ Campbell is an amazing surgeon and very down to earth. Highly recommend!"- C.K. / Facebook / May 31, 2016
"An amazing Doctor ! - I went to see Dr. Davoodi recently about breast implants. Dr. Davoodi and his staff took time to listen to what I wanted and helped me chose the right size. I had a great experience with the whole office from the consultation where all my questions were answered to the sweet staff preparing me for surgery. I was very nervous as this was my first surgery ever but was confident in the whole process. Now I am 3 weeks out and look great. A perfect size and shape."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 24, 2016

"I am very happy with my surgical result. I had a breast lift. This was the best thing that I could have done for myself. Dr. Abell and staff made this a comfortable procedure. I can't thank him enough, and I have recommended him already to several friends and co-workers."- P.C. / Office Visit / Oct 19, 2016
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.
Is There an Age restriction?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has only approved this prescription of Juvéderm Volbella® XC for lip augmentation and to smooth the wrinkles around the mouth for men and women over the age of 21.
Possible Side effects?
As with any medication, there is always a risk of side effects. Juvéderm Volbella® XC may produce discoloration of the lips and skin, pain, swelling, itching, redness, tenderness, lumpy lips, bumpy skin around the mouth and site of injection, and firmness under the skin. These side effect should be mild, and last no more than 30 days. If you experience any side effects, please call our office to report the condition.
Do the injections hurt?
Juvéderm Volbella® XC patients report to feeling no more than a pinch during the actual treatment. The injection has lidocaine mixed into the medication to make the experience less painful as well.
