Having thin or nonexistent lips can make a person feel like they aren’t beautiful anymore. They might unjustly compare themselves to the women they see on TV and think they’ll never look like them. But what they may not know is that there is a solution for thin lips. It’s FDA approved and proven to make lips look fuller and pillow soft. It’s called Volbella, and it’s one of the staples of the Juvederm dermal filler line.
Volbella for the Lips
When the lips are plump and full, it does a lot to change the outlook of the face. It brings out a person’s beauty, enhances their smile and shows off the best of them. Volbella does exactly this by returning some of the material your lips lose as you grow older. It also uses this same technology to enhance the areas around your lips, removing wrinkles and smoker’s lines around the mouth.
Volbella’s primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is what gives the skin its elasticity and plumpness. HA is a natural ingredient found in everyone’s skin. When previously full lips look dull and flat, it’s because this HA is lost as we age. There are also instances where thin lips are hereditary, meaning the amount of HA in the lips is less to begin with. Either way, Volbella provides the opportunity to increase this HA.
How it Works
HA is a series of protein chains whose main function is to absorb water. The water absorption serves two purposes: to give the lips a full, plump look, and to allow the skin to remain smooth and wrinkle free.
When used in the lips, Volbella’s synthetic HA material almost instantly plumps them and leaves them looking full and beautiful without looking inflated and fake. When Volbella is used around the edges of the mouth, it works to eliminate ugly smoker’s lines and eliminates wrinkles.
Why Use Volbella?
The reasons for using Volbella are as simple as 1-2-3!

All you need to do is sit back and let a member of the Estetika Skin and Laser Solutions team take care of the rest.
- It’s safe and effective: Because it’s FDA approved, Volbella is clinically proven to be a safe treatment for healthy adults. There are certain genetic issues or medications that may prevent you from undergoing this treatment, but we’ll explain all of that during your initial consultation. You’ll be able to see results from your very first treatment, but the best results are seen after a couple different sessions. We’ll schedule your entire treatment process after your first appointment.
- It has no downtime or harsh side effects: Any medication will have some lasting effects, but past patients have described Volbella’s side effects as manageable and short. There may be some bruising or swelling around the treated areas, as well as some residual pain. These effects should last only a few days.
