Juvéderm Volbella

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Sunset Beach, Newport Beach, Redondo Beach, Orange, Dana Point and Orange County

Juvéderm Volbella is an injectable lip filler that improves the appearance and texture of the lips. Lip injections are a minimally-invasive solution for restoring or enhancing your natural lip volume. Thinning of the lips is a common condition that is most often caused by aging and lack of collagen. But with Juvéderm Volbella, patients can experience the power of hyaluronic acid, a natural solution that stimulates collagen and increases hydration for plumper, more voluminous lips. 

The injectable treatments are quick and customizable. Whether you are considering lip injections for anti-aging benefits or just looking to resolve other cosmetic concerns, the team at DermFx will create a personalized plan to help you enhance your lip shape and volume.

All About Juvéderm Volbella

Juvéderm is the most popular dermal filler in the United States. It is a collection of injectable treatments used to target the following areas: lips, cheeks, chin, smile, eyes, and jawline. Juvéderm Volbella, an FDA-approved lightweight hyaluronic acid injection, is specifically designed for the lips. (1) Treatments can last up to 18 months, depending on the type selected by your DermFX team member. The popular treatment has minimal side effects, requires minimal aftercare, and you will see results immediately. Although hyaluronic acid injections are not a permanent solution, the treatment is easy to maintain due to the convenient nature of the injectable. 

Benefits of Juvéderm Volbella

Juvéderm lip injections have several benefits, including the following: 

  • Increased lip volume
  • Reduced wrinkles (perioral lines)
  • Improved lip texture
  • Enhanced but natural look
  • Balanced facial aesthetics


Patients must be 21 years or older to receive Juvéderm injections. Ideal candidates for Juvederm Volbella are individuals who:

  • Desire fuller lips or improved lip shape
  • Want to reduce the appearance of lip lines and wrinkles
  • Seek a non-surgical alternative to lip augmentation
  • Have realistic expectations for the procedure and its outcomes
  • Are in good overall health

Although most patients seeking lip treatments are good candidates for injectable solutions, some may be asked to pursue an alternative treatment based on their medical history. If you currently have an oral infection, we may also recommend waiting to receive lip filler treatments until the infection subsides.(2) If you have a history of severe allergic reactions, also known as anaphylaxis, we may recommend an alternative treatment. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or proteins used in hyaluronic acid serums may not be the best candidates for injectable gel fillers like Juvéderm Volbella. 

Personal Consultation

During your initial consultation, your experienced DermFX team member will discuss the results you wish to achieve with Juvéderm Volbella injections. You will need to tell us about your medical history, current medications, and pre-existing conditions at your appointment. After you discuss your treatment goals, we will outline a comprehensive plan to help you achieve the most effective results. Contact our office today or call to schedule a consultation at one of the following locations in Southern California: Sunset Beach, Newport Beach, Redondo Beach, Orange, or Dana Point.


During your initial consultation, we will discuss the best way to prepare for your procedure. Although your instructions will be customized to your individual needs, we recommend taking the following precautions before dermal fillers: 

  • Schedule your treatment 2-3 weeks before any upcoming events.
  • Avoid taking any blood thinning medication or supplements.
  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours before you receive treatment.

We may also recommend supplements to prevent bruising. If you have questions about bruising or side effects, please ask your DermFX team member at your consultation. 

Dermal Filler Procedure

Juvéderm Volbella contains hyaluronic acid, a compound that occurs naturally in the body. During your treatment, we will numb the injection site and use a small needle to inject the hyaluronic acid formulation into your lips in targeted areas. The injections will increase collagen production, hydrate the lips, and create long-lasting effects. Juvéderm Volbella treatments include Vycross Technology, meaning the hyaluronic acid molecules are cross-linked for a smoother, more stable injectable solution.(3)

Juvéderm Volbella is a simple procedure that takes approximately 15-20 minutes. The amount of hyaluronic acid injected will depend on the results you discussed at your initial consultation. The innovative technology results in a natural appearance and fast recovery process. 

Recovery & Results

Juvéderm is a popular treatment with a quick recovery time. Some patients will experience side effects such as swelling, pain at the injection site, and discoloration,(2) which will dissipate soon after treatment. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the side effects and risks associated with your treatment as well as preventative care

Most patients will see immediate results, though the full effects of treatment may not be fully apparent until swelling or bruising subside. This typically occurs within a few days to a week after the procedure. After this initial swelling resolves, patients can expect to see the final results of their Juvederm Volbella treatment, which can last up to 12 months or longer, depending on factors such as the individual’s metabolism and lifestyle factors.

Corresponding Procedures 

Juvéderm is a collection of injectable treatments for cosmetic purposes. There are several corresponding fillers available if you wish to address more than one concern during your appointment. For example, you may want to combine lip injections with another form of Juvéderm treatment for the cheeks, nasolabial folds, or jawline. If you’re looking to combine, we have customizable treatments available to help you achieve the results you are looking for. 

Juvéderm Ultra XC

Juvéderm Ultra XC is a highly concentrated lip augmentation treatment. If you are looking to achieve a fuller look, this treatment is a good option to discuss with your DermFX provider. 

Juvéderm Vollure

If you are experiencing wrinkles or lines on the face that you wish to address, Juvéderm Vollure is an injectable solution that can be added to your treatment. Although Juvéderm Volbella can address lines and wrinkles on the mouth, Juvéderm Vollure can resolve smile lines or other areas of the face that have changed with age. 

Juvéderm Voluma

Juvéderm Voluma treatments are a heavier hyaluronic acid injection designed for the cheeks. If you wish to address wrinkles or fine lines in the cheeks, this is the perfect addition to your lip filler treatment. 

Juvéderm Volux 

Some patients who are considering lip injections may also want to address changes to the chin or jaw area. Juvéderm Volux is a thicker hyaluronic acid solution for patients who are also experiencing lines along the jaw or lower regions of the face. We offer several options for customized treatments.
