Volbella in nasolabial folds? How long will it last?
Doctor Answers 11
Look at the origin not the problem...
If performed correctly, fillers such as Volbella, Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm Ultra Plus can give great results. The trend now a days is to see where the nasolabial fold is coming from. In most cases this is due to loss of volume on the malar cheeks, or in front of the ear. Volume replacement here can lift the folds- in most cases this gives a more natural look than just filling folds. All cases of dermal filling should be tiered towards the individual, including the selection of fillers.

Volbella - Nasolabial Fold Injections
Juvederm Volbella XC is a temporary hyaluronic acid filler, and like most hyaluronic fillers it has FDA approval for results lasting up to one year. Allergan’s research has corroborated the FDA’s studies; however, it is important to recognize that each patient’s response to the treatment is different, which could affect the length of your results. Regardless, the key phrase here is temporary and the product can be adjusted or dissolved by your physician using hyaluronidase if you do not wish to wait for it to naturally metabolize.
While there are a number of options specifically designed for treating nasolabial folds (such as Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Vollure XC, Restylane, Restylane Defyne, Bellafill, Radiesse, and others), Volbella is typically not one of them and is instead used for adding subtle volume to the lips or reducing the appearance of vertical lip lines. The specific filler or procedure for your nasolabial folds will certainly vary based on your desired results; therefore, it is very important that you meet with your physician to establish a personalized treatment plan.
Volbella in Nasolabial Folds
Thank you for your question in regards to Volbella. Volbella usually lasts up to 12 months. It can be used in the nasolabial folds although it is FDA indicated for lips and the lines around the lips. It is most commonly used for any area that needs more superficial correction (like lips and around eyes). I am not sure of the technique used or the depth of placement of your Volbella; We typically use a more robust product in the folds such as Juvéderm Ultra Plus or Ultra, or a Restylane. All hyaluronic acids can be dissolved with something called hyaluronidase if you are unhappy and do not want to wait for the product to dissolve on its own. To find out what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

Vobella can last up to a year but I usually tell my patients that it last about 6-9 months and I use around the lips only. I don’t use it for the nasolabial folds. Juvederm Ultra is better there. See your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist with expertise in the use of all the FDA approved Hylaronic acid fillers to get the best results.
Volbella and Results
Volbella is a great filler that is typically used in the wrinkles around the mouth. It sounds like it was the injection technique and you should return to have the product dissolved with Vitrase. Best, Dr. Green

Volbella is a great filler
I used many different fillers to get the best results in my patients and must say that I reserve Volbella for fine lines, lips or the areas under the eyes.
I hope that helps

Thank you for your question! Injection of the naso-labial folds is tricky- as you noticed it changed your smile. This may have happened no matter what filler is used. The filler can last a while - but the good news is that it can be removed by injecting an enzyme to remove it.
