On July 13th, 2013, Dr. Maureen Bakken, medical director of Laser and Skin Care Medspa, was selected as part of an exclusive group of experienced injectors to attend the launch and training session for the new lip-fill Volbella from Allergan Inc.
This natural fill is the only Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler proven to last up to 12 months in the lips, with Volbella enjoying a high patient satisfaction rating. Self-assessment of the smoothness of the lips was rated at 81% by those experiencing the new treatment, with 91% reporting that their lips feel and look natural after use of this dermal filler.
Volbella incorporates lidocaine in its formula, like the other Juvederm products, which results in minimal to no discomfort with injection. In Canada Juvederm Volbella has been indicated for the enhancement of the lips (pout) to correct volume loss and shape.
To date, Dr. Bakken has been very impressed with the injectable properties of Volbella and the outstanding results enjoyed by her clients.
