In addition to Botox, facial wrinkle fillers have demonstrated great promise in nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. In the past, fillers were primarily collagen-based products which required skin testing and could be associated with allergic reactions. In the past few years, newer more sophisticated products have become available which are better tolerated, last longer, and feel more natural. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular fillers in use today.
Volbella is a new generation VyCross linked fine filler from Allergan.  Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body.  Volbella is a smooth, clear, and very malleable gel filler.  Volbella products are made differently than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers:  Juvederm or Restylane.  The VyCross linking improves the fluidity of the filler making it move more in unison with your expressions and giving a more natural look.  VyCross fillers also do not absorb water so there is not much swelling associated with these fillers.  Finally, VyCross filler last 18 months which is longer than the 12 months for the Hylacross fillers: Juvederm or Restylane.  

Volbella is one of the VyCross fillers from Allergan:  Voluma, Volure, and Volbella.  Voluma is thicker and perfect for adding volume to the face; such as for cheek augmentation.  Vollure is less dense and very versitile.  Vollure can be placed both superficially and deep and can be used both around the mouth and in the cheeks.  Volbella is the finest of these fillers and ideal for filling fine lines and wrinkesl and is meant to be injected superficially.  Volbella is also FDA approved for use in the lips like Juvederm.  Volbella is ideal for the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, fine lines around the mouth, and for lips.

Simulate Volbella with the Treatment Visualizer App for the iPhone or iPad

Many of our patients find it helpful to see that a filler could do for their appearance before treatment.  This also helps a patient see how much filler will be necessary to acheive the desired endpoint.  

The Treatment Visualizer is a tool for illustrative purposes only to help you visualize simulated results with two of Allergan's facial aesthetic products. 

The app also includes:

- Use live-mirror technology to see how you could look with customized treatment, save before and after images to mobile devices, email results or bring the images to appointments to discuss treatment
- A link to Allergan's Brilliant Distinctions® rewards program 

To visualize the treatment download the free App from iTunes or Google Play
