If you are looking to soften the appearance of lines around your mouth, augment the size of your lips, or adjust their shape for more definition, then Volbella® is the ideal option for you. Volbella is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid. What makes this product unique is the fact that it has a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid than some of the other fillers that Juvederm® offers. This allows Volbella® to be a smooth, soft dermal filler option.
Since the product is produced by Juvederm®, it is backed by VYCROSS™ technology, making it one of the longer lasting dermal filler options available on the market today. VYCROSS™ contains lidocaine, which makes your injections more comfortable. We offer Volbella® at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery. Contact us in Santa Rosa today to schedule a consultation and learn more!
How Long Do Volbella® Results Last?
Clinical trials were done where Volbella® was used to increase the lip fullness of participants. They found that the majority of participants were able to maintain their lip fullness as well as a softening of the lines around their mouth for approximately 12 months.
This is thanks to the VYCROSS™ technology that mixes different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid together, thereby increasing the duration that the treatment will last.
Am I a Good Candidate for Volbella®?
You are a good candidate for Volbella® if you have vertical lines that appear above your lips or around your lips and you want to do something about them. You are also a good candidate for Volbella® if you are bothered by the asymmetrical appearance of your lips or wish to add more volume to your lips.
Is Volbella® Safe?
Dr. Chernoff is committed to only offering his Santa Rosa, California patients products that have proven to be effective and that have been proven to be safe. Volbella®’s effectiveness and safety has been clearly shown in multiple clinical trials in the United States and around the world.
As with any medical procedure, there are chances of side effects. But in most cases the side effects produced by Volbella® are extremely mild. They include tenderness, bruising, redness, pain, and discoloration. For most patients, these mild side effects clear up in less than 30 days.
Is Volbella® A New Product?
Since October 2016, Dr. Chernoff has been offering his patients Volbella®. He was among the first cosmetic surgeons to offer this procedure to Santa Rosa, California residents.

Currently, Volbella is being offered in more than 70 countries around the globe. These include markets in Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Canada, and Europe.
