You’ll be pleased with your outcome.* Most people who see you on a daily basis may not even be able to pinpoint exactly why your appearance has improved!*
Unlike other fillers in the HA category, Volbella contains somewhat less hyaluronic acid. which results in decreased swelling after treatment.* Most patients find that if swelling does occur, it significantly lessens within a day.* With other fillers, swelling and bruising can sometimes last several days.* Another benefit of Volbella is that it is long lasting, giving patients the freedom to enjoy their results without worry.*
One of the unique characteristics of hyaluronic acid fillers is that the effects can be reversed by the enzyme hyaluronidase.* This enzyme simply reverses the effects of Volbella and other hyaluronic acid fillers within several days by dissolving the HA filler.* The good news is that it’s rare for individuals to ask for hyaluronic acid filler reversal. Nevertheless, patients are more comfortable opting for hyaluronic acid fillers knowing that hyaluronidase can help reverse its effects if necessary.
After an initial consultation, your Azala treatment provider will use a topical numbing cream on the desired area. While discomfort is generally minimal with injectible fillers, this ensures a relaxed experience during your appointment. Volbella also contains a small amount of lidocaine, a numbing agent that contributes to a patient’s ultimate comfort. Improvements from your Volbella treatment will be seen immediately.* Possible swelling and numbness can last for up to a few weeks after your treatment, but in most cases will subside much faster.
* Individual results may vary, and not guaranteed.
