Removing Volbella from the lips
I hope that helps and best regards,Dr. Sapijaszko.
Thank you for your question Chazia. I understand your concern. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance the lips. Hyaluronic acid products can be dissolved with hyaluronidase without major side effects. Some people have found that fillers with Vycross technology (Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure) may require multiple rounds of treatment before they are completely dissolved.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Volbella - Removing with Hyaluronidase
Juvederm Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler with FDA approval for results lasting up to one year, which means it is not permanent and your body will naturally metabolize the product over the course of 6-12 months. Because of Volbella’s temporary nature, the filler can be partially or completely removed using hyaluronidase; however, there is a small possibility of side effects such as an allergic reaction. If you wish to have the product removed before your body dissolves it, please ensure that you meet with a cosmetic physician to evaluate the area, discuss all of the potential side effects, and develop a personalized treatment plan for removing your Volbella.

Volbella and Hyaluronidase
Volbella will gradually reduce with time, usually at around 12 months, but in some individuals this duration may vary and can extend or reduce. If you have a result that you are unhappy with, then Hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the filler. However, Hyaluronidase itself has risks. It is a product that in some cases is derived from animal products and can cause allergic reactions which can be very severe in nature. It is for this reason that many aesthetic practitioners prefer not to use Hyaluronidase unless it is an aesthetic emergency, or the result is extremely bad. I have not seen you to adequately advise you for your situation, so you should seek the advice of an appropriately trained and competent medical professional to assess whether Hyaluronidase treatment would be suitable for you and discuss with them the concerns you have about the results that you have achieved.
Hope this helps!
Vobella and Hyaluronidase
Thank you for your question. Hyaluronidase works to break down hyaluronic acid, the main component of Vobella and many other fillers. Side effects are possible, so a consultation with a reputable and qualified physician in your area is important prior to treatment.
Yes, of course it can be removed with Hyaluronidase. 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 and also to be able to use Hyluronidase if needed.
Hyaluronidase can be used in precise doses to dissolve injections of Juvederm Volbella.
Hyaluronidase is safe to use by experienced plastic surgeons and dermatologists.
IS VOLBELLA REVERSIBLE?
Yes it can, side effects minimal
You have have bruising and swelling for a few days after dissolving the filler- this is proportional to how much filler had been placed. Overall a good and safe procedure, with very little side effects.
(Truth- its a painful procedure, but pain is short lasting)
All the best
