When will Juvederm Volbella be available in the US?

I have been looking into lip fillers for awhile, and just have been unimpressed with the duration in which they last. I heard Juvederm came out with a new product called Volbella that is suppost to last longer in the lips, but it seems its available every where but the US. Does it look like it might become available in the near future?

FDA Approved: Placement has to be meticulous!

Juvederm Volbella XC is now FDA approved and available in the United States and is indicated for perioral rhytids (vertical lip lines) and can subtly and softly enhance the lip volume. This product has to be expertly and meticulously placed in order to provide optimal results. The ratio of product also has to be proportioned based upon your individual anatomy as to avoid the "duck" look. Again ,a skilled injector will have the aesthetic eye for your unique assessment. It is important to find a provider who is top in your region or even country through Allergan, the makers of Juvederm Volbella XC. My practice has been within the top 1% provider of Juvederm and Botox for over a decade. Although tutorials are offered via Allergan, the delicate nature of this product placement requires advanced injector technique.

Juvederm Volbella

I have been using Juvederm Volbella for about 8 months since it was first approved in Canada. It is a thinner version of Voluma, which was recently approved in the US, but we have had it in Canada for more than 3 years. Volbella is a great product for defining lips and smoothing lip lines, but it really is not for plumping up the lips and giving much volume.  I still use Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus for enhanced volume.  If you are interested in enhancing your lips, don't wait for Volbella.  Try one of the other hyaluronic acid fillers.

Volbella - Now Available in the US

Juvederm Volbella XC is one of Allergan’s latest products to become FDA approved in the United States for use in the lips (for lip augmentation) and for the correction of perioral rhytids or, as they’re more commonly known, small wrinkles/lines around the mouth. As a hyaluronic acid filler, Volbella has FDA approval for results lasting up to one year, with Allergan’s research corroborating the FDA’s studies. Typically I have seen hyaluronic acid last anywhere from 6 months to a year with my patients, although it is important to recognize that each patient’s response to the treatment is different, which could affect the length of the results. Volbella is a more subtle treatment than Juvederm or Restylane and falls under the category of an enhancement (with regard to lip augmentation) rather than a significant enlargement. If you are interested in greater volume being added to your lips, there are alternative options that can be used, and as in all cosmetic procedures, it is very important that you meet with your physician to establish a personalized treatment plan.

Volbella in the United States and expected Release

Volbella is expected to be released in October 2016. I am very excited about it since it has the same technology as Juvederm Voluma which has become my favorite product. Volbella is a thinner version of Voluma with Vycross technology which is amazing and will be a "game changer" for lip and under eye injections. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.
