Cosmetic Dermatology in Burbank, CA
Some people have naturally plump lips. Others might need a little help.
If you want to have a full appearance in your lips or have noticed lines
around the edges, consider using a dermal filler. Dermal fillers are injectable,
soft-tissue filler that is injected into the skin to give your lips a
plumper, natural look. Juvederm Volbella is one of the most recent FDA-approved
lip fillers on the market.

What Is Volbella?
Volbella is a kind of
dermal filler cosmetic dermatologists can use to define lips and correct fine wrinkles
around the mouth. It’s made of hyaluronic acid and doesn’t
require a skin test before injections. Volbella’s small particle
size can also allow your injector to treat the fine lines without getting
a full look in this area if your lips are already natural full.
