JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® is a newer formulation of filler that is considered to be the Juvederm ideal option for the lips, lines around the mouth, and additional lip area volume.
As women, we are all especially aware of our lips, our smile, and our teeth. If we have a pretty smile, we feel so much more confident. But the full lips we start out with tend to both shrink and lose definition with age.
Volume loss of the lip body and loss of deeper structural tissue support around the mouth make our lips appear thinner and smaller, and open the door to lip wrinkles both above and below. Further flattening of the philtral columns reduces the cupid’s bow, which also detracts from the desired feminine and pretty lip shape.
Volbella is designed to
- Add lip volume
- Soften lip lines
- Correct downward mouth corners
- Reshape philtral colums

Will Volbella last?
Volbella is a long-lasting, soft, smooth gel that can last up to 12 months. The special Vycross® gel combination makes this filler one of the smoothest available. Studies have shown that when full correction is obtained, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® can last up to one year in some individuals. Your personal metabolism, intensity of lip movement and your age will all have an impact on actual longevity.
How we get lip lines
Lines above the lips, referred to smoker’s lines or lipstick lines, have long been a source of frustration for many women. The “way” you speak, combined with the natural loss of collagen and support, can create multiple lines and increased line depth. Women who tend to purse their lips when speaking generally have the most lines (aside from women who smoke.)
Meeting the challenge of lip line filling
Filling these various depth and nonlinear radial lip lines has always been challenging for physicians since the lines are not straight – and needles are! Dr. Fitzgerald’s specialty techniques for fillers used around the mouth make the most of volume correction as well as individual line smoothing.
Setting the stage for treating advanced lip area aging
Pre-filler procedures such as fractional resurfacing (Fractora) and appropriate skin care products can reduce the amount of filler required, and help produce a smoother and fuller mouth area.
