Juvederm Volbella® xc is FDA approved in the USA for injections to the lips and the lines around the mouth. Patient sophistication has led to requests for a gentle lip enhancement and vertical lip line correction. Volbella® is an exciting product that has effectively allowed physicians like Dr. Ferland to better address her patients evolving needs. Volbella has proven to be widely applicable to more patients than ever before because the results are soft and natural, lasting up to a year. Vycross® technology is the key to the duration of Volbella®.
COMFORT – All injections are performed by Dr. Louise Ferland, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Before arriving to the office, the home application of a prescription numbing ointment is applied by the patient one hour before arrival. XC in the name Volbella® xc refers to the manufacturer’s added numbing agent ‘xylocaine’ (lidocaine) within the syringe which is for patient comfort. Xylocaine in the syringe and the prior skin treatment with a numbing ointment can make for a very relaxing and pleasant experience for the patient. Patients are encouraged to call for refills on their Baylor numbing ointment.
AVOID BRUISING – In order to minimize bruising Dr. Ferland recommends that for 1-2 weeks before the procedure you avoid aspirin, Advil, Motrin, ibuprofen, Aleve, vitamin E and multivitamins along with all herbs and natural supplements to reduce the chance of bruising. Dr. Ferland also employs a vein light which aids in avoiding bruising. Another technique employed by Dr. Ferland is the use of a very fine gauge cannulas with Volbella to the lips hence reducing the chance of bruising sometimes seen with sharp needles.
