After being approved in Europe in 2011, it is finally in the USA.
Dr. Avaliani is proud to be one of the first physicians in US and New York to offer it to her patients.
It is a hyaluronic acid filler designed with patented Vycross™ technology, which provides more crosslinks of the hyaluronic acid resulting in longer product duration and greater lift capacity.
The key difference is the technology it’s made with and the concentration of Hyaluronic acid (HA). HA concentration of Volbella is 15 mg/mL and 24 mg/mL for Juvéderm® Ultra. This key change means that the injected tissues will absorb less water after injection, will have less swelling and will not end up with an unnatural looking result.
The special crosslinking also allows for a smoother injection of the gel, which is also very moldable.
Volbella comes with unique technology and lower concentration of hyaluronic acid, which in turn provides longer duration of the product and it’s moldability.
Yes, Volbella comes premixed with lidocaine (numbing medication) for increased patient comfort during injection procedure, just like Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus.
As with any filler injection, temporary swelling and small bruising were reported. When compared to standard fillers, the unique finding was that less than 5% of patients treated developed swelling, which makes it so much more attractive.
Please call for your expert consultation with Dr. Avaliani to find out if Volbella™ is right for you.
