What Areas Can Juvéderm Volbella Enhance?

Volbella is a Juvéderm dermal filler that contains synthesized hyaluronic acid. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, which means that you have a near-zero risk of having an allergic reaction to Volbella injections.

This FDA-approved cosmetic injectable delivers durable and natural-looking results to enhance your lips and the area around your mouth. If you are considering plumper lips, ask your dermatologist about Volbella injections and whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.


The main goal of Volbella is to plump your lips in a natural and youthful way. Your dermatologist uses a dosage that meets your goals and keeps your lips proportional to your other facial features. Volbella can also restore definition to your lips. If you have any symmetry concern due to aging or other causes, this type of filler can restore the border of your mouth and accentuate the contour of your lips.

Area Around the Mouth

In addition to increasing the volume and definition of your lips, Juvéderm Volbella can rejuvenate the area around your mouth. Volbella can smooth marionette and perioral lines and enhance the cupid’s bow for a fresher look.

Perioral lines around your mouth can happen due to the aging process or lifestyle habits such as regular sun exposure and smoking. They do not respond well to topical products while Volbella can reduce their appearance for lasting results.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Volbella?

During your initial consultation, your dermatologist conducts a physical examination and reviews your health history. They can ask questions about your lifestyle. For example, if you are a smoker, you should quit for your general health and increase the duration of your Volbella results.

You need to be over the age of 21 and want to add volume and definition to your lips and/or reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your mouth. You must not be allergic to any of the injection ingredients, including lidocaine. If Volbella is not an appropriate treatment for you, your provider can discuss alternatives.

What to Expect During Injections

A Volbella treatment usually takes 30 minutes. Your provider begins by cleaning your skin in the targeted area before administering the injections. This process is painless because lidocaine is one of the main ingredients in Juvéderm fillers. If you are concerned about any discomfort, your dermatologist can apply a numbing solution to your lips or the surrounding areas for your peace of mind.

You can combine Volbella injections with additional injectables or other aesthetic treatments in a single appointment. Your provider will have discussed your treatment options and what to expect in a specific session during your initial consultation.

Aftercare and Results

Volbella injections require zero downtime and let you go back to your normal activities right after your appointment. You may experience minor swelling or redness for up to 24 hours. If you take blood-thinning medications, you may have some bruising for a few days.

Wearing sunscreen and avoiding sustained sun exposure and keeping your lips moisturized also help optimize your results. You should also avoid intense workouts and exposure to hot temperatures for the first day after your initial injections.

Your results involve plumper and natural-looking lips with smoother skin around the mouth. You can typically enjoy your results for six to nine months and your provider can recommend a maintenance schedule.
